i totally agree however that wont be the case here.
togekiss is normally a special sweeper why staraptor is a physical sweeper, this would be more like the case of blaziken emboar and infernape. Where they all provide slight niches to the same role and are all use able in top tier but one outshines the others for what ever reason.
Unless we forgo speed, and go with a more bulky appoarch they'll play the same
1. Come in on breloom or something totally non threating
2. force the switch and either status/attacks whatever coming in boost up or uturn to a better counter
