I am new to rain teams, and am not sure if this is a good one(got it off smogon):

Politoed (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Scald
- Toxic
- Encore
- Protect

He's here for obvious reasons

Dragonite (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Multiscale
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 SAtk / 4 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Hurricane
- Aqua Tail
- ExtremeSpeed
- Roost

Good special attacker, and as hurricane always hits in rain, helps alot

Tornadus (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Hurricane
- Hammer Arm
- Rain Dance
- Taunt

not sure about this dude, seemed like a good idea when i put him in there, but it didnt work out well

Ferrothorn (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Spikes
- Leech Seed
- Gyro Ball
- Protect

very helpful in most situations

Jellicent (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP / 216 Def / 44 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Scald
- Will-O-Wisp
- Recover
- Taunt

spinblocker, and is good from what ive seen

Toxicroak (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Dry Skin
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Nasty Plot
- Vacuum Wave
- Dark Pulse
- Sludge Wave

not sure if this dude was a good idea

For Dragonite, it's better with a Quiet nature, so that Rash doesn't take away from its good Special bulk (true, the lowered Speed hurts, but ExtremeSpeed and Multiscale can help make up for it).

I think Rotom-W should replace Tornadus, because of its powerful Hydro Pumps in the rain; it's also a good revenge killer with a Choice item:
-Thunder/Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

This team has quite the weakness to Electric Pokemon. Jolteon could probably hurt this team quite a bit. CM & SD Virizion hurt this team a lot. Politoed and Jellicent lose to Giga Drain & Leaf Blade after set-up. Tornadus and Dragonite lose to Stone Edge/Hp Ice after set-up, too. And Ferrothorn loses to CC/Focus Blast. Your only real defense against it is Toxicroak, which won't last long IMO if it's set-up enough. I think you should keep Tornadus as at the moment, it's the only Pokemon you have that outspeed's Virizion and could possibly OHKO it with LO boosted Hurricane. I'll add more later~
