That is a difference of 205, which is very much a bigger drop than a lot of people were suggesting. I honestly see no problem with a Pokemon of such low, or even lower stats. Its about flavor after all. We should do whatever feels right.
Would also like to mention, this is not being done in the same mindset as real CAPs - there is no need to make these playable at all. These are not being tailor made to fit into the LC metagame (not that it isn't a possibility), so we can make them either little piles of junk nobody would ever play in-game, or we can make them the equivalents of Scyther and Murkrow.
Worrying about actual numbers at this point is irrelevant.
