Those 2 are generally really great to utilise as leads in Rain Offense but another Pokemon I've had some great success with is scarfed Genesect.
Its ability to control momentum from the get go I have found to be invaluable and is great for taking down Pokemon such as Calm Mind Latias, Mewtwo, Darkrai (I usually carry something with Sleep Talk like Zekrom, in case of a Focus Sash, since I despise facing Darkrai). Revenging Rayquaza, taking out the Kyurems with Iron head, dealing decent damage to Lugia and Ho-oh with Thunder or simply exploding on either of them and or Extremekiller Arceus as a to either remove a threat or simply pave the way for Palkia or Kyogre rampage through the opponent. I'll be sure to test out Kingdra next time I run rain since I've never really been tempter to use it over Palkia until now.
