Again, I point out the frustration in finding a Huge Power Azurill when I could just devote my resources into the many wild Lillipups. Frankly, if Dunsparce is being considered for Bottom Tier because of its rarity, then Huge Power Azurill shouldn't even be close to Top Tier. For something to be Top Tier, it needs to be viable even without a beneficial ability. Azurill doesn't do that, because Thick Fat Azurill is a huge joke.
There hasn't been any real standard at all in terms of rarity. Scraggy is currently top tier despite having a 5% encounter rate and a 50% shot of getting the right ability on top of that. Azurill has a 20% encounter rate in comparison. You'll be encountering it so often, you shouldn't have any problems finding a Huge Power one.
EDIT: You'll get into forced encounters with them too, since Repels aren't available at the ranch.
