In the future, just edit your post. The reason why your posts got merged was because of the double-posting rule (I guess).

Politoed is pretty much essential for a Rain team, due to its Drizzle ability. However, in simulators, Swift Swim + Drizzle is banned because of how overpowered that combo was back in the day. There's nothing wrong with that combo over at Wi-Fi, though.

Vanilluxe isn't good in standard play because of its extremely shallow offensive movepool. Walrein is better suited on a hail team for its ability to stall things out:
Nature: Bold
EVs: 232 HP/108 Def/168 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Ice Body
