Crobat (M) @ Damp Rock Ability: Inner Focus EVs: 252 HP/6 Atk/252 Spd Jolly nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Rain Dance - Taunt - U-turn - Hypnosis My Rain Dance lead. Taunt for SR and sleepers. Hypnosis for dangerous pokes- weather changers specifically. U-turn breaks Focus Sashes that seem to be everywhere. This guy comes in later to set up rain again or to sleep someone who has gotten too many Swords Dances/Calm Minds. Very nice- a rain lead that can set it up multiple times. --- Kingdra (M) @ Life Orb Ability: Swift Swim EVs: 244 HP/12 Spd/252 SAtk Modest nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Surf - Rain Dance/? - Ice Beam - Draco Meteor My best rain sweeper. Most have this mixed, but I prefer not too. Surf for the main attack, Ice Beam for Dragons and Grass, Draco Meteor for Latias and Waters. I have used Rain Dance a total of three times, but what else is possible? Very good defensively, for about 30 battles I did not have the HP EVs and did not even notice. Life Orb for power and ability to switch attacks. --- Kabutops (M) @ Life Orb Ability: Swift Swim EVs: 204 HP/252 Atk/52 Spd Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Waterfall - Aqua Jet - Stone Edge - X-Scissor My physical rain sweeper. Speed EVs beat Scarfed Heatran in the rain. Waterfall is my main attack, Aqua Jet picks off weakened pokemon. Stone Edge OHKOs Gyrados even after Intimidate. X-Scissor beats Celebi and is my non-water 100% accuracy move. Life Orb for power and attack switching. This guy uses Aqua Jet more than one would think. Choice Scarf on fast pokemon are usually beaten by Kabutops. --- Azumarill (M) @ Choice Band Ability: Huge Power EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/6 Def Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Waterfall - Ice Punch - Aqua Jet - Superpower Azumarill is the most overlooked rain dance team member IMHO. Banded Aqua Jet OHKOs weak pokemon-without rain. With rain, it is my main attack. Azumarill wins-as in makes the final KO- more than anyone else. Waterfall is if I must kill something this turn or I am faster. Ice Punch is for Dragons. Superpower is for the Blisseys and Heatrans of the world. This thing hurts pretty much anything very badly. Choice Band is for max power on Aqua Jet since I am without Swift Swim. --- Ludicolo (M) @ Life Orb Ability: Swift Swim EVs: 4 HP/252 Spd/252 SAtk Modest nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Surf - Ice Beam - Grass Knot - Toxic My secondary special sweeper. It resists ground,which is why it replaced Omastar. Surf-power, Ice Beam-Dragon/Grass, Grass Knot is for Waters not named Vaporeon. Toxic is for Vaporeon. Vaporeon walls this team COLD without Toxic on Ludiculo. Not much else other than choose the best move and attack. --- Jirachi @ Damp Rock Ability: Serene Grace EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/6 SDef Bold nature (+Def, -Atk) - Rain Dance - Thunder - Water Pulse - Wish My secondary rain dancer. Wish for healing, RD is obvious. Two moves to attack, so I use parafusion. Jirachi has beaten four pokemon by himself before, so it really is useful for more than Rain Dance. Thunder and Water Pulse really help with stopping pokemon while I set up Rain Dance. Defense EVs help it take Earthquakes. --- Overview-Very powerful yet walled by Vaporeon. I would like any suggestions on how to stop Vaporeon. Only two dedicated Rain Dancers, but I have never run out of rain while both Crobat and Jirachi are KO'd. I do not have Stealth Rock since I OHKO most pokemon anyway, but I may consider it if there is something important that SR would help against. No mixed sets but I never have regretted that.
