Numel / Camerupt with a overlevelling can do better with STAB Earthquake against all Water types (especially all thoses Tentacool) but have problems with Gyarados and Pelipper (Intimidate reduces Rock Slide power) but has also a nasty x4 weakness to water
Hence how all three are bad in the long term, with Pelipper at most receiving utility as a HM slave due to being able to use Surf/Dive/Fly/Waterfall.
