I already know my team isn't perfect. I want to change it but I don't know what member I need to replace. My goal is to have a counter for the most of the OU threats. Oh and I don't play by the item clause.

Conkeldurr @ Leftovers
Adamant
252 attack/ 120 HP/136 SpD
Bulk up
Drain Punch
Mach Punch
Stone Edge

Dusclops @ Eviolite
Calm
252 HP/ 80 def/ 176 SpD
Pain Split
Night Shade
Will-O-Wisp
Ice Beam

This thing is extremely difficult to take down. Will-O-Wisp is there to cripple physical attackers and ice beam is there to murder Gliscor and Dragonite.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Adamant
248 HP/ 252 attack/8 speed
U-turn
Bullet Punch
Superpower
Pursuit

Its ability is technician.

Latios @ Choice Specs
Timid
252 sp atk/ 252 speed
Draco Meteor
Hidden Power Fire
Psyshock
Surf

Cloyster @ Focus Sash
Naive
252 atk/4 sp atk/252 speed
Shell Smash
Icicle Spear
Rock Blast
Hydro Pump

Skill Link

Dragonite @ Lum Berry
Adamant
252 attack/252 speed
Dragon Dance
Outrage
Extreme Speed
Fire Punch

Multiscale


Anyways, I always lose to rain teams and I struggle with Rotom-W. I'm willing to change anything about this team. The only thing I want to keep is atleast one member and I want to have atleast one dragon on my team. I feel like I have too many physical sweepers and not enough walls and special sweepers. Thanks in advance.

Try replacing draco meteor and psyshock on Latios with Calm Mind and Dragon Pulse.
Also change his item to Leftovers. This will make Latios more capable as a sweeper.

Latios is perfectly capable of using Choice items. While it's also able to use CM as well, the OP may have wanted Latios to inflict severe damage on the opponent with it right off the bat. Latios doesn't HAVE to use Calm Mind if the OP doesn't want it to.

Anyway, how about you try out Gastrodon? Its Storm Drain ability lets it check Pokemon that use Water moves in the rain by increasing its Special Attack when it's hit by one. I'll let someone else figure out where on the team it can be:
-Earthquake/Earth Power
-Scald/Ice Beam
-Toxic
-Recover
Nature: Sassy/Calm
EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain

I might actually try that. As for Latios, I would rather have it inflict a large amount of damage immediately then switch out.
