It is fast and has good special defense and that flying resist. Should be able to check both thundurus and birdie.

Well, i dont really like azelf because his poor bulk and his non access to fighting type moves except detect. Mew doesnt have his speed or special attack, but has aura sphere and an infinite movepool. Anyways, Azelf gets wrecked by priority moves like Breloom's mach punch or Scizor's bullet punch. Right here some calcs.
252 +2 Atk Fighting Gem Technician Breloom (+Atk) Mach Punch vs 0 HP/0 Def Azelf: 74.23% - 87.63% - 2 hits to KO
252 Atk Choice Band Technician Scizor (+Atk) Bullet Punch vs 0 HP/0 Def Azelf: 74.57% - 87.97% - 2 hits to KO
252 +2 Atk Life Orb Technician Scizor (+Atk) Bullet Punch vs 0 HP/0 Def Azelf: 128.87% - 151.89% - Guaranteed OHKO
Talking about Raikou, yeah, it might work with an appropriate team. I recommend the CM set.
Raikou @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spe / 4SDef
