Well, Iím not a big raindance fan (in fact, Iím not big on any unoriginal
deck), but thatís beside the point.  Here are the changes I would make:
---------------
Ok, the pokemon are good.  You should add another Blastoise, though.  Take
out the 2 Scyther, because you already have a good resistance with Articuno.
  Add another
Articuno, because he is your most powerful pokemon, especially once you get
Blastoise on the bench and make use of his power.
---------------
Trainers.  Take out the one trader, and add another switch, because all your
pokes have a 2-3 retreat.  Take out the gambler, because itís almost
impossible to prevent a raindance deck from decking out anyway.  Add an Item
Finder, so that you can get back an Oak or Breeder if needed.  Iím really
not sure about the potion, because they donít help too much with the pokemon
you have.  Remove both potions, and add a super potion.  Also, add another
Gust Of Wind, because these are very useful in getting rid of that pesky
pokemon that sits damaged on the bench.
---------------
Iím going to leave the energy unchanged, because you seem to have balanced
those out really well.
---------------
Alright, hereís a final look at the deck:

4 Squirtle
1 Wartortle
3 Blastoise
2 Lapras
3 Articuno
2 Hitmonchan
4 Bill
2 Prof. Oak
3 Energy Retrieval
2 Switch
2 Breeder
2 Comp Search
2 Super Potion
1 Item Finder
3 Gust of Wind
18 Water Energy
6 Fighting Energy
---------------
Well, enjoy!  E-mail me on how it performs in action!
