The Rainstorm VI
The Team (Overview)

The Team (Detailed)

Politoed @ Focus Sash

252 HP, 158 Defence, 100 Special Defence,
  • Surf
  • Double Team
  • Toxic
  • Protect
Politoed is a lead to summon the rain into the field, then Surf as a useful STAB with an added boost from the rain. Toxic and Protect are essential for toxic stalling and it is hard to kill with the Double Team, the Bold Nature, and all the HP, Defence and Special Defence EV's.

Dragonite @

252 Special Attack, 252 Speed, 4 HP
  • Thunder
  • Hurricane
  • Roost
  • Dragon Pulse
The Thunder and Hurricane always hits in the rain, with Dragon Pulse as a reliable stab move. The Nature and EV's mean it will have a formidable Special Attack. The Roost is for when it's HP drops low.

Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
Iron Barbs

252 HP, 252 Special Defence, 4 Defence
  • Gyro Ball
  • Power Whip
  • Toxic
  • Leech Seed
As it is so slow, the Gyro Ball hits for massive damage with the STAB bonus which the Power Whip also gets. Toxic is good for toxic stalling and Leech Seed for added damange and HP gain. I have put a almost all EV's into HP and Special Defence this makes it able to take a lot of damage from special hits and even if a physical move hits it, its heavy base defence should normally withstand it and the Rocky Helmet/Iron Barbs combination means that 7/24 of the HP is taken off. Also in the rain, fires power is halved.

Toxicroak @ Leftovers
Dry Skin

252 HP, 128 Defence, 128 Special Defence
  • Protect
  • Drain Punch
  • Poison Jab
  • Payback
With the dry skin ability it gains 3/16 of its HP every turn, which combined with Protect means that it can recover 3/8 of its HP without taking a hit. The Drain Punch adds to the HP recovered and so also a powerful, reliable STAB move with good type coverage. The Poison Jab is a stron STAB move also, with Payback dealing serious damage to Psychic types, who it has a four times weakness against.
