[OVERVIEW]
Horsea can be a threat under rain, but that is where the problem lies. Because of manual weather is so bad and it has terrible bulk, Horsea finds itself unable to set up Rain Dance. When it does manage to use Rain Dance, it is forced onto a time limit because of the short duration of manual rain. Furthermore, Horsea is outclassed by other Swift Swim users such as Mantyke and Omanyte, as they can hit much harder than Horsea in the rain. Other offensive Water-types like Corphish outclass it as well because of having better bulk and raw power. Without rain being active, Horsea finds itself slower than a lot of the tier's most common offensive Pokemon.

[SET]
name: Rain Sweeper
move 1: Hydro Pump
move 2: Ice Beam
move 3: Rain Dance
move 4: Hidden Power Grass
item: Life Orb
ability: Swift Swim
nature: Modest / Timid
evs: 116 HP / 196 SpA / 196 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
Horsea's best chance of success is using Rain Dance when forcing out a Pokemon such as Ponyta and Onix. It can make use of a very powerful rain-boosted Hydro Pump and has Ice Beam to cover Grass-type switch-ins. However, without the Speed boost from Swift Swim, it finds itself revenge killed or forced out easily and, due to its low bulk, cannot make use of its Water typing defensively. This set is heavily outclassed by Corphish, which can threaten foes with Aqua Jet and strong Water-type STAB moves before and after setting up.

To clarify, I took a look and I still stand by my original QC check with the exception of the Wingull mentions of course. Please don't add those in.

Nineage I added everything from Merritt's check as well. Sorry about that, I probably should have ask if it was ok to just take DBW's thread, as the only reason I didn't do that in the first place is that I didn't want to get in trouble for plagiarism. I wait to put this as 2/2 till you give the ok.

It looks fine, but somehow all DBW's sentences seem to have been condensed? Please read this over for obvious grammar errors and split up some of your sentences to help out the GP team. Then you can move this out of QC, it gets a 2/2 from me.
