    Politoed (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drizzle
    EVs: 252 HP / 88 SAtk / 168 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Rest
    - Protect
    - Toxic
    - Surf

    Scouts with protect, toxic for anything that resists water, surf is a generic stab with high base power + rain boost will KO a lot of the metagame, rest is there as a filler move but it has come in handy once or twice

    Rotom-W @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 SAtk / 8 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Trick
    - Pain Split
    - Thunder
    - Hydro Pump
    Normally the 3rd pokemon to come in after anything water resistant has been removed, hydro pump if it hits is devastating in the rain, trick is there to render any wall's useless. thunder is 100% accurate in the rain when combined with a stab it's nearly as nasty as hydro pump. finally to be honest pain slit is just there to piss people off...

    Latias (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 240 HP / 16 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Substitute
    - Recover
    - Calm Mind
    - Dragon Pulse
    Latias, thank god this is not uber any more...Tends to come in second and get set up on whatever came in to counter the rain (as long as it is not a water with ice beam) the main problem i have when i get set up is other faster dragons coming in with dragon claw or outrage.

    Toxicroak (F) @ Black Sludge
    Trait: Dry Skin
    EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Def
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Substitute
    - Bulk Up
    - Sucker Punch
    - Drain Punch
    this normally comes in late game, it is a real pain in the ass to get him set up but when you do there is almost no getting rid of him, he does not need a recovery move thanks to dry skin and black sludge, substitute is there to help get set up / scout and the punch's not only provid me with priority and recovery but near perfect type coverage.

    Scizor (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 32 HP / 252 Atk / 224 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bug Bite
    - Bullet Punch
    - Roost
    - Swords Dance
    People always think this guy is a revenge killer when they seem him... tuns out he like to get set up with sword dance then start punching through teams with bullet punch (90 base power with stab and technician) and bug bite is just the for coverage and a extra stab. Finally as with all good set up sweepers a recovery move is invaluable and roost is one of he best.

    Genesect @ Life Orb
    Trait: Download
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)
    - Thunder
    - Ice Beam
    - Bug Buzz
    - U-turn
    Ahhh bug number 2 I know it is a big No No to have this guy in the same team as scizor but he seems to work quite well with thunder getting a lovely rain boost, and ice beam is always around to remove dragons and set latias up.bugbuzz i the last real attack move here as U-turn is just there to scout and swap safely.

    Other options:
    At the moment I have 2 other options in mind the first of witch is losing genesect and gaining a mamoswine wearing a lovely choice scarf, this means i still have the capacity to kill dragons but i can revenge kill a lot more with earthquake coming off 400 attack and 350 speed. I was also debating using a manaphee but that depends on the server as half of them think it's OU and the other half Uber.

    Any comments are welcome... (:

    Rumble rock is back, expect a BETA soon.
