I've been theorymoning something like this, perhaps with Jumpman's substitute/swords dance Terrakion as the third poke.
Most of my thought on this, however, has been about the best moveset for suicune. I absolutely love substitute here, as it provides much appreciated protection against unexpected critical hits, making it much safer to stall out things like thunder. It also protects against bulky 1HKO pokes. Going mono water, however, seems to leave one heavily vulnerable to all the water immune pokemon in the subway, even when fully set up. Suicune can easily stall out some of them, but others appear problematic to me.
The following is a list of the water absorb (and equivalent) pokemon you may face, with threats to a fully set up suicune identified:
Maractus (50%) NOT IN SUBWAY
Jellicent (50%) NOT IN SUBWAY
Lumineon (50%) NOT IN SUBWAY
Parasect (50%) NOT IN SUBWAY
Poliwrath 1 and 2 boost and hit physically
Poliwrath 4 circle throws and thus phazes you if not behind a sub; has powerful physical attacks to break sub
Politoed 3 boosts and hits physically
Lapras 4 phazes with perish song; kills if you don't switch out before it blocks
Quagsire 4 boosts and hits physically
Gastrodon 2 and 4 boost and hit physically
Toxicroak 1 and 4 taunt, potentially stopping you from stalling them out
Might ice beam be better for Calm Mind Substitute Rest Suicune's one attack? Nothing is immune to it and it gets excellent coverage. I don't have access to icy wind Suicune, else that might be worth considering too.
