Default Please Rate My Uber Rain Dance Team

Okay I’ve made some various changes to my uber rain team so here’s the updated version-

Kyogre @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Drizzle
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Water Spout
Ice Beam

Kyogre's main purpose and role is to set up the rain to assist the rest of my team that benefits from rain. It is also used to wipe out a chunk of my opponents team using Water Spout as long as they don't out speed it or resist it. Its main threats are Dialga, Palkia, and Scarf Zapdos as the first two resist its powerful Water Spout and Zapdos with a +Spd nature and Choice Scarf can really damage it making Water Spout useless. Thunder and Ice Beam are just strong special moves that hit some of Water Spout's resistors and basic for Kyogre, and Surf is in case Kyogre is low on HP.

Palkia @ Haban Berry
Ability: Pressure
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Spacial Rend
Waterfall/Focus Punch

Palkia's place is for a rain abuser seeing as it can learn strong water moves and Thunder and can out speed average ubers that do not have a Choice Scarf. Thunder is for power and perfect accuracy in rain. I chose to go with Spacial Rend instead of Draco Meteor for a no recoil move that it gets STAB from to hit the common Dragon types in ubers. Surf is a powerful Water move with better accuracy than Hydro Pump and for better reliability. As for Waterfall or Focus Punch they would be for taking care of Blissey but not sure which one I should use just yet. I prefer Waterfall over Aqua Tail because of reliability and the possible flinch. Haban Berry is for covering its only weakness and better stance against opposing Dragon types.

Dialga @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EV's: 252 HP, 140 SpA, 116 SpD
Nature: Modest
Dragon Pulse
Thunder Wave
Stealth Rock

I have Dialga to set up Stealth Rock which I kind of need for this team to assist my sweepers and in case of a potential Shedinja switch who otherwise I would not be able to defeat. Thunder is just a powerful perfect accuracy move to back up Dragon Pulse and to get great coverage. Dragon Pulse is STAB and deals with the more common Dragon ubers, and Thunder Wave is an assisting move and makes up for its low speed. Its EV spread lets me take out Palkia with Dragon Pulse and survive longer with the defensive spread and Leftovers.

Mewtwo @ Expert Belt
Ability: Pressure
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Grass Knot
Ice Beam
Aura Sphere

Mewtwo is the main special sweeper that specializes in taking out the more threatening ubers. Grass Knot is mainly for taking out Groudon, Ice Beam is for Rayquaza, and Aura Sphere is for Dialga and Darkrai. Taunt is to get rid of hazardous non-attack moves that could be detrimental to my team plus Timid lets it out speed Darkrai to Taunt away Dark Void. Expert Belt is to assist in taking out the Pokemon it counters and really just used it because Life Orb’s on Kingdra.

Kabutops @ Focus Sash
Ability: Swift Swim
EV's: 252 Att, 252 Spd, 4 SpD
Nature: Adamant
Low Kick
Swords Dance

Kabutops is the Physical Sweeper of the team and is designed to beat out ubers by out speeding them with Swift Swim and sweeping with a Swords Dance boost. Waterfall is for power and STAB as well as a possible flinch. Low Kick is mainly for taking down Dialga which could pose as a real threat to this team if not dealt with and Flail is a powerful 200 power move that goes along with Focus Sash since I would prefer to play in the single-item clause tier.

Kingdra @ Life Orb
Ability: Swift Swim
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spd, 4 Att
Nature: Modest/Mild
Hydro Pump
Dragon Pulse
Draco Meteor

Kingdra is another Special Sweeper and the main check to Palkia who could also pose a potential threat to this team if not dealt with properly. Hydro Pump is basically just for a powerhouse move to use against those who don't resist it; Dragon Pulse is for wiping out Palkia without the added negative effect of Draco Meteor assuming the opponent does not hold a Haban Berry. Waterfall is to help take out Blissey who could otherwise wall Kingdra as well as my other special sweepers, and Draco Meteor is for a powerful Dragon move to hit Latios/as hard as well as Dialga. Additionally I put max Speed EV's into it to allow it to out speed Choice Scarf Palkia.

So those are the changes to my uber rain dance team so again tell me what ya’ll think and give your input on what I should change/consider if anything. Thanks in advance! :)
Your fellow Pokemon player,
