Refresh is very viable too and a simple set of scald dtail recover refresh means you can phaze/burn a lot of mons while the walls can't toxic you to death. I think this stuff should be enough to grant it B tier since it isn't really strictly outclassed by any of the other bulky waters.
Tbh I'm not sure if suicune should be B tier, and it should never be a tier above milotic in any case. If anything I'd argue that suicune is outclassed as milotic/slowbro/slowking do the bulky water thing better (cos recover, new rest mechanics kind of ruined suicune) while slowbro is arguably a better CMer because new rest mechanics make crocune or sleeptalk-less cune deadweight against anything that can phaze.
I agree with this. Milotic deserves to be at least
Rank B. It has amazing defenses, Recover (which Snorlax and Suicune do not have access to), good special attack, the ability to absorb status relatively well (with Multi Scale), and a great pHazing move in Dragon Tail. It always puts in a ton of work whenever I use it, and often flat out walls weakened teams.
