If you mean Drizzle, Drizzle+Rain Dance is banned. Tornadus sounds great though.

I'm curious: why do only 252 EVs "count"? (I don't know all about pokemon stats and whatnot yet.)
I didn't see that Armaldo and Kingdra had Rain Dance. Anyway, Tornadus would be better to use over Accelgor.

A Pokemon can have a total of 510 Ev's. So if you put 252 Into Speed and then 252 into Attack, you'll have 6 left over. But, only 4 of those 6 Ev's will count, so you'll always have 2 left over. When you put 255 Ev's onto a Pokemon 3 of those Ev's won't be used and if you're doing it for two stats so 255/255, you're wasting 6 which 4 of those could go into another set.

A basic Ev spread is 4/252/252. You get me?
