    Froggy (Politoed) (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drizzle
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Scald
    - Toxic
    - Protect
    - Perish Song

    All rainy teams start with this dude right here. Defensive politoed is usually my go to for rain teams. He is much bulkier then most give him credit for. I am usually able to get a few scalds off and hopefully score a burn before getting too damaged. Toxic is always a solid option and perish song shoves it to status boosters and especially baton passers.

    Shroomz (Breloom) (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Mach Punch
    - Bullet Seed
    - Swords Dance
    - Spore

    Another OU favorite. Breloom is really annoying for any team to face. Spore gives him a chance to get off a swords dance (two if you want to push it) and attempt a sweep.

    Mr. Marbles (Linoone) (M) @ Sitrus Berry
    Trait: Gluttony
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Belly Drum
    - ExtremeSpeed
    - Shadow Claw
    - Seed Bomb

    Linoone is as gimicy as they come. I usually try to get the belly drum off against stealth rockers or spikers or sleepy foes from breloom. If he can get the drum off LOOK OUT! Mr. Marbles is on the loose :D There is not much that can take STAB ExtremeSpeed from something with roughly 1000 attack.

    Charles (Latios) (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Draco Meteor
    - Surf
    - Trick
    - Psyshock

    Another OU standby. Charles is usually my revenge killer. Draco Meteor will destroy anything that doesn't resist. Surf is great with the 50% boost that rain brings it. Psyshock for obvious STAB reasons. And trick is always a nice move to cripple set uppers.

    Tater-Tot (Azumarill) (F) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Huge Power
    EVs: 212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Waterfall
    - Aqua Jet
    - Superpower
    - Ice Punch

    I have no idea why Azumarill is not nearly every OU team. With Choice Band his attack is higher than Haxorus! Waterfall will wreck havoc on everything it touchs. Even an Aqua Jet in the rain can plow down most of what it hits. Superpower can take down Ferrothorn in a single hit. Ice Punch for dem dragons.

    Laptop (Lapras) (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Hydration
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
    Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
    - Rest
    - Curse
    - Avalanche
    - Waterfall

    Hydration is make or break for Lapras. Without it, well... she sucks. But the power to get back to full health in a single turn and access to Curse makes Lapras a heck of a wall. Plus after getting a few Curses off Avalanche and Waterfall will leave a sizable dent on whatever she faces
