Here's a thought that popped in my mind, how viable is Rain Stall or Semi-Stall? Rain Offense is very popular, but what does everyone think of a defensive version, analogous to Rain Stall in OU.
Cresselia being the catalyst, in that she can learn Rain Dance, and has reliable recovery, although Moonlight only heals 25% in rain. :\ Her bulk allows her to constantly switch in and set up the rain. There is a number of other Pokemon that would fare well.
Rain Dish Ludicolo is one that sticks out, as with Leftovers it can heal quite a bit of HP each turn. Qwilfish is one that can set up (Toxic) Spikes, and absorb Toxic Spikes on entry! Poliwrath and Cresselia form a good defensive core, especially because Poliwrath can utilize both Swift Swim and Water Absorb, depending the nature of the team.
What do you guys think? Viable? Or is it just too offensive to work?
