Hello smogon forums. I have decided to go beyond my realm of team building and run my very first Rain team. I am pretty sure it is going to have some flaws considering the aforementioned fact, but I hope to use some constructive criticism. I honestly don't know what to look for, because whenever I test my teams, even after doing so, I could never figure out what changes I should make. With that being said, I hope you guys will help me out with my uncharted territory of weather teams. Anyway, enough of the introduction, here's my team! Team Building Process Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide First, a good Pokemon to start a rain team with is Tornadus-T. It can plow through whole teams with the proper support, which my five other members plan on doing. Now, its most powerful attack is 100% accurate under rain. The only partner that helps with that is Politoed. I decided to use Specstoed Both Politoed and Tornadus-T are zapped into oblivion by the many electric types, such as Thundurus-T, Jolteon, Rotom-W, etc, so I needed a Pokemon that can take these threats out. A Thundurus-T of my own would help as it only fears Specs Rotom-W, so I decided to go with it. Torn-T and Thundurus-T are both weak to Stealth Rock, so a Rapid Spinner was a must. I decided to use Starmie for the job because, although it adds an Electric weakness, I already have Thundurus-T to absorb electric attacks and Politoed is specially bulky enough to survive unboosted ones. To not hamper on the offensive presence I have on this team, I decided to use the Standard Starmie. I lacked Stealth Rock and a Pokemon that has both offensive presence and the ability to set SR up is just what I wanted to use. I also needed a Dragon type resist, so in came Metagross, fitting the bill quite nicely. I lacked a revenge killer and a Pokemon to help me clean up late-game. Scarfkion allows me to deal with Volcarona, who could hurt me outside of rain. After a few tests from suggestions by you guys, I agree with Mosquiton that I am pretty weak to Mamoswine and I can't really handle Tornadus-T without sacrificing a Pokemon. To counter that weakness, I replaced Metagross with Bronzong. It has about the same physical bulk as Metagross (if not better) but a lot better SpD to take hits from Tornadus-T without being KOed easily. Here it is, my Offensive Rain Team. A Closer Look.. Conclusion Here is my team. Please critique it as best as possible. I really want to get better at making Rain Teams. Thanks!
