    I've been annoyed with weather teams, so I decided to make one myself.

    Zapdos @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 248 HP / 224 SDef / 36 Spd
    Calm Nature
    - Thunder
    - Roost
    - Heat Wave
    - Roar

    Specially Defensive Zapdos. Great bulk, great offense. This guy takes special attacks greatly. It works well with Rain Teams (with Thunder abuse) and it is a great defensive pivot. Works well with Gastrodon, Cobalion, Toxicroak, and Politoed.

    Istariray (Starmie) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
    Timid Nature
    - Rapid Spin
    - Ice Beam
    - Surf
    - Trick

    My dedicated annoying lead. It screws Pokemon laying entry hazards, set-up Pokemons (Gyarados, Conkeldurr, etc), and a lot of other stuff. Everytime they see 'toed, they lead with Ferrothorn and this guy just screws Ferrothorn so much. It just doesn't 'Trick,' the sheer fire (water) power of this thing is wtf strong. A glass cannon indeed.

    Politoed @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drizzle
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
    Bold Nature
    - Hydro Pump
    - Hypnosis
    - Perish Song
    - Toxic

    Defensive 'toed. A must for a Rain Team. It was usually Def move + 3 attacks for almost all other 'mons. This time, it's 3 annoying moves + 1 Attack. Perish Song is for pHazing, Hypnosis is for things like Venusaur, Toxicroak, and other Poison and Metal types. Toxic is for almost everything that isn't metal or toxic.

    Toxicroak @ Black Sludge
    Trait: Dry Skin
    EVs: 244 HP / 132 Atk / 132 Def
    Adamant Nature
    - Bulk Up
    - Drain Punch
    - Fake Out
    - Ice Punch

    BU Toxicroak. Bulky and powerful. It really lasts long with Black Sludge and Dry Skin.

    Gastrodon @ Leftovers
    Trait: Storm Drain
    EVs: 4 SAtk / 252 HP / 252 Def
    Relaxed Nature
    IVs: 0 Spd
    - Counter
    - Earth Power
    - Surf
    - Recover

    Physically Defensive Gastrodon. It helps a lot in stalling. If it absorbs a Water-type attack, a +1 Surf/EP can pose a threat.

    Cobalion @ Leftovers
    Trait: Justified
    EVs: 28 HP / 252 Spd / 228 SAtk
    Naive Nature
    - Close Combat
    - Volt Switch
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Stealth Rock

    Mixed Cobalion. Spam CC if applicable, Volt Switch to escape anything that doesn't outspeed it or trap it (Dugtrio).

    Any comment/criticism would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
