This bulky toad is usually my lead to induce rain at the beginning of the battle but I have to see whether there are potential threats on the opponent team that most likely OHKO my weather inducer. If thats the case, my other offensive pokemon would do the lead and I would switch to Politoed when I have the chance to so as to gain a free turn by making the opponent switch(predict). [e.g Opponent switches to Ninetales, then next turn I would throw out Politoed to cancel the Drought.] On the other hand, this thing is not really of use to me so its a status-absorber and punching bag for my transition switches.

Comments: This is my bulky sweeper and Im kinda protective of it.(As in I wont let it die easily and its my Offensive core) I favour this scizor a lot as it really sweeped many teams as a pokemon that can turn the tables around when Im losing. Not really much comment for this but just saying, I dont intend to replace this but I may still be persuaded and suggestions are still welcomed.

Comments: Swampert is for electric atk switch-ins and to set up stealth rock during the free turn the opponent switched out. This bulky guy also takes on pokemon like heatran with STAB EQ and make dragons switch out due to the fear of ice beam. In addition, it takes stone edge quite well as well. Swampert is mainly the defensive core in the team as it walls quite well. It phazes out pokemon using subs and status boost with roar, which is preety handy at most times since it can survive a hit usually.

Item: Toxic Orb
Comments: This set is rather common in the 4th gen and I guess it still works here but not as easy as before to set up.(Well, perhaps only me becoz usually breloom gets K.Oed before I can set up or do anything with it) Spore,Substitue and Focus Punching to punch holes into opponent teams such as ferrothorn, tyranitar . Seed Bomb for Swampert, Gastrodon and Quagsire.

Comments: This bulky dragonite is to punch holes into enemies at early game if Politoed leads with Drizzle by spamming Thunder and paralysing enemies or hurricane to confuse enemies. Brick break is for the element of surprise, hoping to scare off ferrothorn/tyranitar/blissey.
Evs: 244 hp, 252 Atk, 12 spd.
Moveset: Ice Punch
Item: Life Orb
Comments: Toxicroak is quite fragile so I feel that its quite risky to set up so I tried to make it bulker by giving using this ev spread. Ice punch is to 1/2 gliscor or dragons hp(except Dragonite w Multiscale) at least to let the rest of the pokemon clear up since a lot of the pokemon in OU tier outspeed Toxicroak and can probably OHKO it if theres no def,SpD or hp ev.
Yup so all in all, this is my Rain team. I am not sure if its the problem with the team mechanics itself or me using it becoz I play Sunny Day and Sandstorm team with ease and win matches much more easily than this. I would kindly appreciate any feedback or suggestions and would gladly consider them.
Thank you! ~
