dammit....I just realized I dont have a Rapid spinner =/


Well, you only have five Pokemon listed. You could easily fit Starmie in there.
He'd fit right in, too!


Mmm yeah maybe but starmie is too fragile and i already have special attackers but yeah i might put it tho i would be really weak to thunder/grass


Tentacruel could help you out... doesn't have a grass weakness and absorbs Toxic Spikes... Plus it has double-lefties with Rain Dish, making it a pretty good wall.

Volcarona (Focus Sash)

Hurricane (100% Acc in rain)
Fiery Dance (Useful in the case that the enemy changes the weather)
Giga Drain (Punishes water pokes who want to take advantage of the rain, Restores HP)
Hidden Power Rock (for perfect coverage)


-Can be used to lure a water attack to Toxicroak
-Counters anti-rain teams
-Unexpected in a Rain Team

i wouldn't opt for volcarona without spin support. your team as is doesn't really need a spinner...

scizor loves rain support and dragonite does well with it as well, i think scizor fits best though. jellicent would also work well here, as a spinblocker secures your spikes and also your team isn't the bulkiest and Jellicent's WoW support would help a lot.

Ferrothorn definitely. there's a reason why he is in almost every rain team.

Edit: oh crap, i accidentally deleted my previous message instead of editing it ><

Anyway, what I was going to say is that you should consider putting thunderwave on your ferrothorn in stead of Gyro ball. Thunderwave is a lot more useful specially that you already have a powerful attacking move already (Power whip). Also I would have replaced rocky helmet with leftovers. Ferro needs the regeneration.

are you playing on smogon rules? If not, then I highly suggest getting a swift swimmer or two in there. Kingdra and/or Lodicolo are devastating with swift swim under the rain. Specially Kingdra.

And whatever the sixth pokemon you choose, make sure it can learn rainy day incase toddy got killed and the weather changed.
