Your UU team looks alright.

RU team:
If Uxie is using U-turn, then its nature should be Impish, so that U-turn's power isn't weakened (yes, I know U-turn coming from uninvested neutral 75 Attack doesn't hurt much but still...)

Slowking's Fire Blast is weakened in the rain. Instead, either use Ice Beam for hitting Grass and Dragon Pokemon, Psyshock/Psychic for a secondary STAB or Dragon Tail for phazing.

Like Slowking, Nidoqueen's Fire move is weakened in the rain, so it can use Focus Blast as an alternate way to deal with Steels, despite thevredundant coverage with Earth Power and low accuracy.

The UU team has lots of problems with Bugs, whenever there's a Bug I'm getting stuck.

RU tried to solve it with those fire moves, but yeah need to think and change that.

How about you fit in Cobalion or Registeel as defensive pivots for your UU rain team? They resist Bug and their Fire weakness will be cancelled in the rain. Cobalion can even go offensive if you want:
-Stealth Rock
-Sacred Sword/Close Combat
-Volt Switch
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Toxic
Nature: Naive/Jolly
EVs: 248 Atk/28 Atk/232 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Swords Dance
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
-Hidden Power (Ice)/X-Scissor
Nature: Naive/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers

or
-Calm Mind
-Focus Blast
-Hidden Power (Ghost/Ice)
-Flash Cannon/Substitute
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers

Registeel:
-Stealth Rock
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
-Seismic Toss
-Earthquake/Shadow Claw/Iron Head
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
