but in addition to killing celebi, hp bug also 2hkos claydol and non-bulky flygons (and since it is very nearly a 2hko against even BULKY flygon you just have to get a bit of chip damage on it or a flinch if you're desperate), the two best ddtar counters after swampert. it's a 100% accurate ohko on starmie too for whatever that's worth. taunt only helps against stuff that you beat anyway. the increased offensive versatility is more useful against the majority of teams.
<&spies> FUCK i just SNEEZED and made a MESS
