Pokemon X Roserade and Kingdra Stratergy good?
Hello! I was wondering if this Stratergy for Double Battles (Only Really) is good. I will not be switch this Pokémon, but please tell me if it's a good plan, any weaknesses, etc. Also, this is for Competitive double battle play.
Kingdra: Ability- Swift Swim : Item- Dragon Claw (Replacing)
-Ice Beam (Should I replace?)
Roserade: Ability- Natural Cure : Item- Black Sludge
-Grasswhistle (Should I replace?)
Basically, here's a explaination:
Round 1- Roserade uses Rain Dance. Kingdra uses Dragon Dance. Major Speed Boost, and a Sp. A Boost. Not to forgot, if any Mega Charzard Y comes out with Drought, Drought will disappear thanks to Rain Dance.
Round 2- Kingdra attacks, while Roserade sets up Toxic Spikes. (Main reason I chose Toxic Spikes is due to Poison, however there are many popular ghost/flying/steel types these days... Ex: Gengar (Is it popular?), Charzard/Talonflame, Aegislash.)
Everything else is a mystery :P
And Please, nothing about Damp Rock.

Ability: Swift Swim
Item: Dragon Gem (what is a Dragon Claw haha)
EVs: 6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
It's a waste to put Dragon Dance here when you're using Kingdra as a special attacker. Dragon Dance increases Attack, not Special Attack.
I'm fine with this one.
To hit both opponents. Muddy Water can also lower accuracy so I like it better.
Up to you, but definitely not Ice Beam. There's no need for that.
I don't know much about Roserade. I know there's a lot of other Pokemon out there who can support Kingdra better, but anyway:
Ability: Natural Cure
Item: Black Sludge (or Damp Rock lol)
EVs: 252 HP / xxx Def / xxx SpD <-You balance this out yourself depending on what you need for your team.
Good enough, so I guess you're making Roserade as your support for Kingdra?
So you can weaken enemies who get poisoned by the Toxic Spikes.
1 - Rain Dance + Protect
2 - Muddy Water + Toxic Spikes (It would be better if you could someone who can setup Stealth Rock though.)
3 - .....
I don't do Doubles much so sorry if this doesn't work well
