One major factor is Bullet seed.
There is a 3/10 chance for it to hit 2 or 3 times, 2/10 times for it to hit 4 or 5 times.
The average. Calculated without STAB and Technician, then added Technician.
Average = 82.5
2.5 over Seed Bomb.
Yeah, it's overhyped, and unreliable.
However, Technician Adamant Mach Punch vs Neutral 0/0 Doryuuzu
Regular Poison Heal Adamant Mach Punch vs Neutral 0/0 Doryuuzu
Someone calculate those (the computer I'm using right now is messed up)
Use Spinda for the calculation. Same Defense.
I think your underestimating Bullet Seed. 2 hits and you have 75 power, 3 hits and your 111, 4 hits and your around 148 power, 5 and your 185... I think we know the superior choice.
Poison Heal should be restricted to Sets with Substitute only, as it can heal Sub damage in 2 turns, not to mention SubPuncher Breloom has no need for Mach Punch at all, he's not a revenge killer.
