The main issue I have with skill swap pure power is... you can accomplish the same thing but better by just using swords dance (on something else not dusknoir). It would be better to even role play pure power than skill swap pure power, and even then swords dance is still better.
EDIT: By "better", I think I actually meant "more reliable", as in the attack boost is independent of partner, but not necessarily strictly better, since role play has uses outside of doubling attack too, just that usually role playing pure power is likely the best option, which is less reliable than just swords dancing (and the fact that swords dance can be used more than once too - not that that's going to happen in doubles, of course).
Tauros comes to mind for role play pure power. Fast speed, has good enough attack to function outside of pure power, can learn role play via Gen IV, and has intimidate to soften up attacks on the first turn that it is using role play. Most importantly, it can't learn swords dance lol. Alternatively, Tauros can also role play a Follow Me Serene Grace Togekiss and have rockslide flinching awesomeness. I wanted to try that some time ago just for fun but never got around to it... but yeah that's getting off tracked from the skill swap pure power idea...
