Also, is this strategy viable in RU?
Both Zangoose and Ursaring are very viable in RU, and Zangoose is very, very good in RU as ShakeItUp has shown.
@Cim: Zangoose isn't completely outclassed by Heracross. For one, Zangoose can 2HKO Gligar after a boost, and if you forego Night Slash for Quick Attack then he makes a great late game cleaner as well as wallbreaker. Then he is able to do significant damage to faster threats like Raikou and Darmanitan after hazard damage. He does need a lot of team support to get that SD up, but once he does he can cause a lot of damage.
