Galvantula wouldn't be a bad idea.
It can have Unnerve due to Thunder's perfect accuracy in the rain AND Fire's power is weakened by the rain.

I assume this would be true. If it's not, can someone explain?

Well yeah thunder would be 100% with rain and fire would be weaker but isnt galvantula a little fragile?

A little. But Galvantula is viable in UU. With 108 base Speed, he's nothing to sneeze at.

You need keldeo. Dragonite can spam hurricane and thunder. Galvantula is going to be destroyed by priority

Keldeo is a sweeper. Tell me which priority attack ate you using to deal with it? None, because it's defenses are decent and it is resistant to 2 of 3 most common priority attacks( bullet punch, Mach punch and I've shard)

Point taken.
But a Mach Punch or Vacuum Wave (dunno why you'd see Vacuum Wave, but humor me) would still do damage. No sweeper likes priority coming from the opponent.
