Are these members good for a Rain Dance team?

Jolteon - Permanent member.

Literally felt like using a Rain Team for Jolteon.

Going with Thunder, Signal Beam, Magnet Rise, and Volt Switch.

Gyarados

Not sure on set. Don't care for it, but might work to avoid Ground attacks.

Politoed - Permanent member

Drizzle, Ice Beam, Scald/Surf, Toxic, Rain Dance. (For Sandstorm, as not many hail teams, and Ninetales is usually faster than Politoed)

Breloom - Felt like I've been neglecting him and want to use a bit more, might place him on a different team however.

Could also resist Ground attacks.

Landorus-T

Immunities, Intimidate, VoltTurn, EdgeQuake, Stealth Rock.


And/or Scizor.

Honestly can't care any less for Scizor.

I'm willing to change anything except Jolteon and Politoed as members. I can change Poli's moveset though.

Really want to keep Breloom, unless its terrible on this team.

You need someone who could take care of Ferrothorn and other Grass types.

Good point.

Hmm....I've been using Sunny Day teams do long I've forgotten Ferrothorn and Grass types were a problem.

Would Magic Bounce Espeon in Rain using HP Fire work? Maybe with Expert Belt/Choice Specs?

Choice band sucker punch? Doesn't that seem a bit risky? I'd use an sd set dark and fighting have pretty good coverage on their own giving you a choice for filler. To keep this thread relevant to the board though how do you think rain teams will be this gen?

I'm pretty sure this fits under "General Pokemon discussion" as it affects the series as a whole.

However to simply answer your question, I believe Rain Dance teams will continue to obliterate the metagame, however I can see a new Drizzle user, and a buff to Sunny Day teams.
