And thus a pokemon goes up to OU purely because it checks Rain.
Even though if they carry HP Grass or Ferrothorn, Gastrodon becomes either dead or lets free hazards up.
And Gastrodon fails against any other type of team.
Meanwhile, Porygon2 failed to do this when he checked Gyarados, Heatran, Salamence, Vaporeon and Jolteon with the same moveset! One of which ended up an Uber...

These things are shit and it's funny to see Tornadus UU. I guess he will be fine in UU without drizzle to support him.
Vaporeon is a pretty decent Wishpasser still, and has some teeth under Rain [And can stall with HydraRest].
Also, it's used on Baton Pass teams to pass Acid Armors and Roar out opposing Stat-Uppers. Vapreon would probobly be a solid OU if Rotom-W and Ferrothorn wasn't everywhere. It's far from shit.
And Swampert, if it wasn't for rain, deserves OU more than Gastrodon...
