I guess the question is whether or not a neutrality to Fighting-type attacks is worth sacrificing 12 base points in Attack and a secondary STAB and Shell Smash. We discussed this yesterday on IRC, and the thing was that by the time Totodile takes a hit setting up Swords Dance (it honestly doesn't force THAT much out, unlike Tirtouga, who has notable resistances to types possessed by 2 of the 3 unbanned), probably some hazard damage, and LO recoil, it's not going to be taking a Fake Out + Vacuum Wave from Croagunk anyways, so the Fighting neutrality seems pointless. I guess a completely healthy Totodile does have the upper hand against Croagunk to an extent, but the metagame's too offensive at the moment to keep one mon completely healthy in most of your games. You are completely sacrificing the ability held by Tirtouga to reliably beat Mienfoo and Scraggy with Aqua Tail and Splash Plate.
Don't count the days, make the days count.
