Ice type would probably make it one of the least good pseudo legendaries. Ice is so horrible defensively that any Pokemon that has it is automatically worse unless they take huge advantage of hail.

Yeah, offensive. Which means it's good to have a move that has ice type. But the Pokemon itself being ice type already leaves it vulnerable to common stuff.

But Ice/Water is decently common and that helps alot.

Not really, it neutralizes two of water's resistances (fire, steel) and makes it weak to two more (fighting, rock), three of which are pretty common, two of which are priority moves and one of which is a stage hazard. Also all except one of the water/ice types aren't really that good in the metagame and the only exception (Cloyster) still needed powerful tools to get out of the rut (notably Shell Smash, Skill Link and Icicle Spear).

Haha I've thought about that too. Raikou doesn't strike me as the kind that would join up with anyone else.
