you also have options in (mega) scizor, (mega) lucario, and aeigslash for similar reasons to ferrothorn except these are set up sweepers who enjoy the crippled fire. the main thing i've learned is that you should pick pokemon that do well outside of rain but do even better in it so if you lose rain, your team isn't dead weight. hope your team goes well TC! :)
