The rain also has absolutely no effect on his ability to use Raiton techniques. All Raiton save Kirin use chakra. The weather doesn't do anything to them, and they can't be juiced just because it's rainy.
EDIT: and if you're saying "oh well he'll just be as powerful as Madara was pre-Rinnegan," that's also a pretty decisive no. Madara rather obviously has much stronger ninjutsu than Sasuke ever did.
The concept being, what did Edo-Madara do prior to using Rinnengan and Harashirma's DNA techs, all of that shit he did as I stated PRIOR to him unleashing Rinn in theory are all jutsu's and or abilities available to Sasuke. Just because Sasuke hasn't been activated, dosen't suggest what his newer abilities are. Just because he's not liked for leaving Konoha and not being a sheep dosen't suggest what his actual powers or abilities are. I understand that the doujutsu's users abilities has some to do with they're special techs, etc. but some stuff is simple math. Madaras MS + Izunas MS = Madaras's EMS = he was one of the most powerful shinobi on the planet, so using that same math Sasukes MS + Itachi's MS = Sasuke's EMS = shit shinobi cause its a good guess?
Lastly, I never said that the storm itself would help ALL of Sasukes Lightnening Techs, but you said it yourself 'Kirin', it was produced by Sasuke utilizing a storms ingredients. So since then, why do we know that all Sasuke can produce is Kirin, I mean thats a jutsu used vs. Itachi a very dated fight, though I don't have a lot of faith in Kishi, chances are, the NEXT Lightnening attack will be different, bigger, and stronger, I'd guess.
Besides this whole manga's progression is about the younger generation surpassing the old....OBVIOUSLY IF AN UCHIHA HAS TO DO WITH THE DEMISE OF EITHER TOBI, OR EDO-MADARA IT'LL BE SASUKE.... THERE ARE NO MORE UCHIHAS TO FALL FROM THE SKY. I ALSO DOUBT THAT EDO-MADARA, CAN BE DEFEATED ALONE BY A 'NON' UCHIHA ALIVE IN THE STORY NOW.
