    It all started when one day, I decided to make a Rain Dance team....
    The team wasn't doing so well because it was to dependent on the rain. If a T'Tar came in, it stopped EVERYTHING. I decided to try again, creating a less weather dependent team, and this is what I got!

    [​IMG](lol@Azelf's face!....wut?)
    Azelf @ Focus Sash Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Fire Punch
    - Explosion
    - Taunt
    Comments: Not to much to say here... Set up rocks, explode!


    Politoed (M) @ Lum Berry
    Trait: Drizzle
    EVs: 252 HP / 196 SAtk / 60 Spd
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Rest
    - Perish Song
    - Hypnosis
    - Psychic
    Comments: In comes the rain monster! This thing should come right out after Azelf explodes to establish the weather. A Politoed like this is meant to be a tank! Perish Song is a delayed phazing move which can be useful for spreading Hypnosis and getting good damage on. Politoed can also absorb statuses or heal with a RestLum combo.


    Tsunbeaa (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Swift Swim
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Icicle Drop
    - Claw Sharpen
    - Brick Break
    - Stone Edge
    Comments: Simply a good sweeper with Swift Swim boost!

    [​IMG]Chirachiino (M) @ Wide Lens
    Trait: Skill Link
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bullet Seed
    - Tickle
    - Rock Blast
    - Sweep Slap


    Togekiss (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 44 HP / 212 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Air Slash
    - Nasty Plot
    - Psychic
    - Roost
    Comments: A much needed Special Attacker on this team of mostly Physicals. Nasty Plot allows this thing to easily sweep, and STAB Air Slash with boosted flinch rate is nothing to joke about.

    [​IMG]Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
    Trait: Poison Heal
    EVs: 44 HP / 212 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Swords Dance
    - Ice Fang
    - X-Scissor
    Comments:A great last addition to my team it keeps Dragons from sweeping if Tsunbeaa is dead, and can even sweep itself. Swords Dance boosts its already sky-high attack stat to new levels. This thing is a BEAST!

    Any comments would be GREATLY appreciated, as this is my first RMT in which I am not rating, you are!

    Drizzle and Swift Swim are currently illegal on the same team together. From a glance it looks like your team gains almost nothing from rain, so I'd ditch it entirely for this team. If you keep it, use better Swift Swimmers than the polar bear (and obviously not Politoed). Also, I'd make your descriptions longer else this will probably be locked.
