Actually,I think this is going to be a great set with a few changes.If u ran aqua tail instead of Hydro Pump it would be even better.Although it makes mence more weak towards Skarm and Forry but hey,with hydro pump it's ferro weak anyway.All 3 of them can be removed by Magnezone.Aqua Tail will give me mence a reliable pseudo STAB in rain letting u abuse moxie more as well as becoming more powerful with DD.Rain pokes such as Keldeo and Politoed are going to pair well with mence too becoz of their ability to deal with mence's 2 common revenge killers such as Scizor,Mamoswine etc.
