Help with 2014 VGC Rain Team

So I've been working on a rain team. It's done okay on battlespot and showdown. The team definitely needs more physical attackers but I don't really have any ideas. I would be okay with using just half a rain team. Right now I lose to trick-room teams, Amoongus and mega kangaskhan. Any ideas or recommendations would be awesome. Thanks.

Klefki is almost never used and rotom seems a bit redundant with the politoed kingdra and manectric. I love using manectric and anything to help him is cool. Kingdra definitely sweeps lots of things but after it dies manectric struggles.
If you feel that your klefki is underused, switch it up for a different support pokemon that does better in rain (i.e. amoonguss)

Also, your rotom-w, and politoed sets are a bit off.

Rotom-W's best set is Light Screen/Hydro Pump/Thunder(bolt)/Will-o-Wisp

Politoed can work with
-Hydro pump
-Ice beam
-Focus Blast/Perish song

Overall, your team looks like a very solid rain team that players will have a tough time defeating.

Hope the set advice helped!
