Seismitoad has been overlooked for quite a while, but its actually pretty good in the RU metagame, especially with its new toys given to it by the new Pokemon games: Stealth Rock and Water Absorb. Seismitoad's stats are pretty good all around, with its HP stat being particularly high at base 105, more than enough to take a few hits. Seismitoad is also gifted with the wonderful Water/Ground typing, having only one weakness while being immune to Electric-type moves (as well as Water-type moves if you're running Water Absorb) and resisting Fire, Poison, Rock, and Steel! Seismitoad's Electric immunity really comes in handy when your using a Rain Dance team thanks to the multiple Electric weaknesses they usually have, and makes it one of the most unique and effective rain sweepers around. Seismitoad is really solid defensively as well, being able to go both physically and specially defensive with its 105/75/75 defenses, resistance to Stealth Rock, ability to set up Stealth Rock for your team, use the rare but invaluable knock off, and hit back rather hard. Examples of Pokemon that Seismitoad can check/counter include Kabutops, Entei, Nidoqueen, Aerodactyl, Slowking, and Klinklang. So what do you guys think of Seismitoad? I personally think its a great mon, one of the best Rain Dance sweepers in the tier, and better than Quagsire in every way (seriously Quagsire sucks lol why is it ru - TROP).
