    This.

    We're making a Rain Dance Starmie, and it could feasibly be used to set up a Swift Swim team or even just if Politoed is dead. Extra turns of rain are of course extremely useful.

    Yea, Damp Rock is definitely a viable item option. It does lose the guarantee to 2HKO TTar in sand and OHKO Scizor in Rain, though.

    If I may add something I have been finding Icywind to be a good compromise between twave and the need for a coverage move (ice) and also either royally screws the opponent late game of forces a switch. Prolly worth a mention.
