For right now this is going to be extremely tl'dr-y because I don't have a lot of time to do this right now, so suck it up =) I'll come back and revise it later, being more descriptive and stuff.

Sand Stream
Sassy Nature
252 HP/180 SpA/76 SpD

Stealth Rock
Fire Blast
Ice Beam

At first I wasn't planning on using any weather with this team, but I kind of realized that I was going to hate rain when the entire reason this team was built was Nidoking. AKA I needed to nerf it. AKA weather war. TTar comes in to give me some Sandstorm, which my team doesn't mind at all. It's here to set up my rocks and basically hit everything he can, while getting Wish passed to him to keep the weather war going.

Timid Nature
252 SpA/252 Spe/4 Def

Draco Meteor
HP Fire

Latios is iffy on this team, as it's honestly doing lackluster for me with literally EVERYONE running SpD Jirachi (Including myself...). I mean it hits like a truck, but meh =P

Serene Grace
Careful Nature
252 HP/224 SpD/32 Spe

Iron Head
Body Slam

This was pretty much obligatory, especially since it has good synergy with my two main sweepers. Jirachi takes all the hits I really don't want Durr or Nido taking (Minus Ground attacks). It walls the random Outrages and Draco Meteors that get flung around everywhere, but more importantly, it heals the team with Wish.

Sand Force
Naive Nature
252 Atk/252 Spe/4 HP

Stone Miss Edge
HP Ice

I figured I'd throw in something to keep momentum up with U-Turn that benefited from the Sand, so Scarf Landy was chosen. But honestly, it's not really doing that well, so suggestions are nice XD

Brave Nature
252 Atk/136 SpD/120 HP

Bulk Up
Drain Punch
Mach Punch

Conkeldurr is here to serve alongside Nidoking, taking any status that anyone throws its way and absorbing it, giving him his Guts boost.

[email protected] Orb
Sheer Force
Timid Nature
252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP

Earth Power
Ice Beam

The entire reason I made this team, I wanted to try out Sheer Force Nidoking. And let me tell you, he's a boss. If you don't resist the attack, you're taking an giant dent from him. Even SpD Jirachi doesn't like coming into him to tank a hit, especially when it's a 2HKO with SR down with Earth Power.

I wasn't kidding about how tl;dr this was going to be XD Also here's the importable if you want I guess =3

Rain in generally gives this team a fair bit of trouble. Specs Politoed, LO Starmie, Latios can spam high powered Surfs (or Hydro Pumps) and hit everything really, really hard. Latios can only take so much abuse with lack of recovery and and only decent SpD. Jirachi cannot heal fast enough without Wish + Protect. Tyranitar gets 2HKOed even with Sand. Thus, I suggest Protect > Fire Punch on Jirachi. Fire Punch is a good move to catch Scizors and Ferrothorn unawares, but Protect gives you much better countering utility lke for some of the threats I mentioned. It quite a bit of damage on those boosted attacks, but it'll work better since you're guaranteed to at least get a Wish off.
