This guy will never be as good as the 'Champ solely because of that possibility.But i do see him as a good Pokemon.Having Mach Punch is a huge deal, and that high defense is awesome.
The thing is that he has the potential to do so. The difference between the two is negligible(imo) stat wise. The big difference is No Guard(Again, this is coming off speculation- otherwise, they basically do everything the same).
The main problem(again, in my opinion) for our cinderblock toting buddy is the lack of move tutors in B/W. If they add new ones in Grey, and tweak his move pool like they tend to do in the 3rd game of a generation, we may have a monster equivalent to machamp on our hands.
all in all i still think he's a great monster though, and i intend to use both of them on my mono-type fighting team
