    Doubles / Triples set

    Rotom-W @ Sitrus Berry
    Modest, Levitate
    252 HP / 160 SpA / 96 SpD
    -Hydro Pump
    -Thunderbolt / Discharge
    -Thunder Wave
    -Protect / Snatch

    • washing machine shuts down rain incredibly easily
    • Thunder Wave slows down Kingdra / Ludicolo / whatever Swift Swim Pokemon is on the other team
    • EVs with Sitrus Berry are not 3hkoed by most Zapdos' Thunderbolts or Kingdra's Dragon Pulses
    • hydro pump in the rain along with thunderbolt 2HKOes a huge number of Pokemon
    • rotom-w has trouble dealing with Gastrodon, so HP grass is a viable (if gimmicky) option
    • Snatch takes care of wide guard and tailwind users.

    Triples Set

    Rotom-W @ Choice Specs / Electric Gem
    Modest, Levitate
    4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    -Hydro Pump
    -Discharge
    -Trick
    -Protect / Snatch

    • This set works best on the side positions, with a Pokemon immune to Discharge in the middle
    • Trick shuts down any Trick Room or Support Pokemon
    • A ridiculously powerful Discharge or Hydro Pump is capable of OHKOing Pokemon with little or no Special Defense investment (i.e. genies), especially when paired with a Helping Hand user.
