Yeah, that was a lapse of judgment. I've considered replacing him entirely with one that has Ice Shard.

You can also use Hidden Power Ice for Dragons as well, since they also resist Electric/Fire, though Dragonite and Salamence are neutral to Electric. The extra coverage is more worth it than the extra power against rain teams.
I don't think his Hidden Power type is grass or ice. I'll consider your point, though.
