I find that non-Rest Tail Glow Manaphy is really good, regardless of weather. The +3 boost is a huge difference when compared to the standard Nasty Plot sweepers, and the extra moveslot available gives you tons of sweeping capability. I mean, Ninetales in sun and Tyranitar in sand cannot take a +3 Surf, and you /can/ continue a sweep in opposing weather. Revenge killing is a bit of an issue, but 100/100/100 and a Water-typing is solid, not to mention 20 BP Grass Knot v. Manaphy. Rain is just the extra little treat, giving a power boost and immunity to status so you can switch in to walls without worry. So basically, I feel like Tail Glow Manaphy should be used as a sort of HO rain sweeper, while CM falls more under the bulky offensive mold.
