While I did exaggerate for the regular stats, I did contribute a lot to 1200 stats. Lilligant is a lot more prominent in the metagame now than it was before with Krookodile leaving last tier shift, and Durant just recently being banned. Magmortar has always been good, it's just that now it's finally getting used.
