The reason no one uses Claydol in RU is because it's UU! XD
Anyway, we can't just go handing out rapid spin to random pokemon that it suits. Rapid spin on Miltank suits it, rapid spin on steelix does not.
Otherwise I like it on Spiritomb! XD
However, I would like to put a pokemon forward with rapid spin, simply because, well, it suits it, but also is great on it (sort of).
@ Rapid spin!
Come on, as rapid spinners go Cloyste- Wait. WHAT!? Screw Cloyster, rapid spin suits him, but how do
not have it? COME ON!
I mean, crogonal got it in gen 5, maybe it didn't suit them before but it sure as hell does now! Rapid spin is created when you spin so violently that you whisk away the hazards. Lunatone and Solrock ATTACK by doing that!!!!!!!
Stats + typing
Typing wise, rock and psychic, they don't get STAb or anything from it. But it's not exactly a move you use to attack! XD Stats wise... Well, it suits Solrock MORE because it's physical (attack and defense) based as opposed to lunatone's special basing but as aforementioned this move isn't made to attack. Negative wise, the spin-blockers - ghosts hit these two super-effectively, but you don't need to cry over that since they can both switch in and out pretty safely, one for physical and one for special sweepers.
: I know solrock more than Lunatone for some reason, but in pokemon battle revolution, XD and colosseum solrock attacks physically by turning on it's side, spinning and charging at the foe. Exactly what rapid spin does!
: Levitate is pretty handy in regular meta-game for these pokemon, but it also helps them with rapid spin against the most common spin-blocker in NU and RU, golurk In fact, in NU the only other ghost types are banette and (the.. uh.. not so common) Shedinja! Neither of which are common at all! Solrock and Lunatone could even go up to RU where Rotom joins in. This just says about the lack of spin-blockers in NU and RU (off topic a little bit) but it just goes to say how useful tyhese 2 would become with this attack.
