Raseri, Machoke does suck enough; when I wrote the set, there were two moves that Machoke had over Gurdurr: Sleep Talk and Dynamicpunch. The former is now a moot point and Gurdurr is, ironically, far better at abusing it. Dynamicpunch is a shitty move; although it's haxy, which is nice and all, it's not overwhelmingly good at dealing out much but hax. It's an expired set.
Porygon: Yeah, the last two sets are just bad. The first... I don't know, tbh. It seems ok on paper but that doesn't mean much without any testing. It, uh, can't OHKO Amoonguss even with a Download boost. It's not the strongest, trapped between the dilemma of LO or Evio and forced to choose the latter.
