One of the few things stopping Politoed from drowning whatever gets in it's way is Hydro Pump's imperfect accuracy (Like always Surf is the main alternative to this). Scald is a nice option considering the burn it can give Ferrothorn and other stalls. However, Hydro Pump's power is needed for allowing Politoed to 3HKO specially defensive Tyranitar hiding in the sand and 2HKO Ninetales prancing around in sunlight.

Ice Beam punishes any Dragons that pop-up and it also deals major damage to Breloom and Latios switching in.

Focus Blast is mainly for Ferrothorn who would hate to get switched into that. Plus (as an added Bonus) Tyranitar also fears Focus Blast, suffering a 2HKO even with a defensive set in a sandstorm.

The last slot is abit of a toss-up. Personally, I prefer Hypnosis to keep the enemy asleep while goto town but it's accuracy makes this hard to keep going. As for Hidden Power Grass, it seems to be a much more viable pick since both Gastrodon and Rotom-W hate it so much and both are pretty common.

A Water Gem makes a surprisingly useful item for this set, allowing Politoed to bluff a Choice item then surprising it's opponent when they think you're locked in! Of course you could always use Choice Specs or Life Orb, but where's the fun in that?

Wobbuffets at max speed can outpace Politoed at minimum speed then Encore you out of control.
