All calcs were taken without Rocks on the field. It's not a Lugia.
And even with Blastoise and Claydol being so common, its not impossible to keep rocks/spikes on the field.
non + sp att timid scarf Porygon Z does nowhere near that on 252HP/252Sp Def Mandibuzz. For some reason a lot of people like to run the scarf set lol.
Mandibuzz can take one hit from tinted lens Yanmega and just whirlwind it away. If you also run a spinblocker on your team, the player using Yanmega would be screwed. Also even though Lens Yanmega is more threatening to most teams, I find the Speed boost specs/LO set a lot more common. There's just too many pokemon who can outspeed Lens Yanmega. Primape, scarf Pinsir, Rapidash, scarf Krookodile, Archeops, Sharpedo w/protect just to mention a few! Special walls like Regice and Cryogonal also has no problem taking a bug buzz and then KO it with an Ice beam after Stealth rock.
Now this is a bit off what I started talking about, but Yanmega is not really a threat in RU and using one of those pokes doesn't really "limit" your team. The only things in RU thats broken are Cress and Kabutops in rain. Though all you really need to take down cress is toxic and a bulky poke with Roar/whirlwind.
