I was thinking of using a Timid Nature, 4 HP/252 Sp. Atk/252 Spd, so that it can be faster than some of the slower choice scarf variants at +1 (such as Rotom), but modest can be used with the same EV spread to do more damage.

I prefer going more on the offensive, rather than being more bulky though. But I suppose it depends on the needs for the team, right? If we need a bulky counter for water types, this could be used. But at the same time, this could also counter them, or rain teams in general:

When this thing switches in on a predicted Hydro Pump, it gets a nice Sp. Atk boost, factored in with Specs and Rain, Surf can actually 2HKO defensive Ferrothorn. That's pretty impressive.
