It's useful in manual rain teams. Because Swift Swim + Drizzle is banned in OU, Kingdra also is useful for checking opposing rain teams on a weatherless team, since it takes advantage of the opposing Politoed's Drizzle.

Kingdra also has absolutely no use for Return, since its Water and Dragon STAB moves have good enough neutral coverage already. It also can't learn Baton Pass.
