I'm interested in creating one, but I'm not sure what the best pokemon to use in competitive play are.
so far i have:
azumarill 252 hp/ 252 atk/ 6 spd
play rough aqua jet super power rain dance
floatzel 252 atk/ 220 s atk/ 32 speed
ice beam aqua jet crunch brick break
greninja 252 s atk/ 252 spd/ 6 hp
u turn ice beam surf extrasensory
electrode 252 atk/ 252 spd/ 6 hp
rain dance light screen protect explosion
I don't have a sixth pokemon yet, but that's what I need help on. I'm thinking that I would need a tank pokemon, but I have no idea what kind is good to have that can also refresh rain dance if needed. Any advice?
heliolisk and toxicroak work great because of dry skin. Both play a little differently. Toxicroak w\ black sludge and substitute/ drain punch makes it a staller. Guess you could do leftovers and parabolic charge for heliolisk too. But I prefer thunder/ surf/ grass knot\ hp ice
Rotom-w is practically a staple on rain teams. And so is starmie is because of its thunder\ice beam\hydro pump\rapid spin set
I always use ferrothorn on my rain teams. It's big weakness is fire, which is weakened by the rain, giving you a good tank
Any pokemon with hydration. If you use rest, you get fully healed and then wake up right away ;)
Also no matter what changes you make, make sure to have 2 pokemon that can set rain. And remember the same rock item
I'd give more suggestions, But I'm not near my 3ds to see my team at the moment
It does very very well. I use it for Triples only, though. Qwilfish is my spiker and has Explosion (just in case). Ludicolo I made as a tank. Politoed is my Scalder and setup (plus he's fairly tanky). Lapras knows Thunder, Ice Beam & Surf for type coverage, then of course Heliolisk for awesome immunity to water and STAB Thunder.
It does very well in the Battle Spot, but I haven't really tried taking it on the ladder yet. I'm sure it'll get stomped where people actually know what they're doing.
Also, Swift Swim Kingdra for mixed attacks. Don't know why you'd want Greninja on the team, unless yours is Torrent ability...
If you wanted to cast Rain Dance, Bronzong is probably a better option than Electrode.
All of these are availible in Friend Safari. Personally, I went with Sun, but only cuz I have Charizardite Y and got a Drought Ninetales from... FRIEND SAFARI. Seriously, Friend Safari is OP
Don't be rude. You might as well call me a "mad people" also. Rain team is a dangerous set up especially azumarill. I don't know how people are getting the new unreleased berries (increases water damage power berries) that are not available YET in X/Y. With Azumaril's berry water power + rain dance + aqua jet... It's over. Weak water pokemon is able to knock down even the heaviest & bulkiest HP pokemon out there, except one pokemon at 10% life...snorlax.
