I don't want to keep forcing this, but the concept of #1 is a bit tricky. Houndoom is good when your team supports it to the point of eliminating walls and letting Houndoom take over with Sucker Punch sweeps. It's pretty much worthless as soon as momentum starts going in your opponent's direction. Nidoqueen is good when it's there to counter fighting types. It unfortunately loses to many other things, like Flygon, Kingdra, and *gasp* Nidoking. Lanturn isn't even UU. It loses to Heracross packing EQ, Roserade (that's the top 2 things in the tier), Bronzong, Flygon, Nidoking, Swampert, and Shaymin. Losing consistently to four things in the top 10 in usage does not define the best thing in the tier.
The idea is that it's #1, not some niche mon that stops a couple of threats and so it's sort of good.
