Even though Ferrothorn is using SubSeed, it isn't the best user of it. Since this is a Rain team you're using, I'd let it have Power Whip instead so it can smack around other bulky Waters, since Ferrothorn can check/counter almost every Water Pokemon in the game that way.

I'd also use Trick over Confuse Ray on Starmie, since confusion may not work in your favor at times, and it screws over walls by forcing them to use 1 move while they're in battle.

Also, use Giga Drain over Surf on Ludicolo, since you already have Scald.

This Toxicroak may be better, since Vacuum Wave doesn't benefit from Bulk Up:
-Bulk Up
-Drain Punch
-Sucker Punch

EVs: 244 HP/252 Atk/12 Def

Ability: Dry Skin

Quagsire really needs Recover so it can either keep setting up or attack.
