I think you meant rise to RU. :)
I think the best replacement for Braviary/Swellow once the shift hits would be Tauros. Sawk and Pinsir might hit harder, but Tauros has much better speed. Sheer Force boosted Rock Climbs and Zen Headbutts will also hurt. Iron Tail has crud accuracy, but it's still plenty powerful and hurts Rocks harder than EQ.
