Both of these put together make it surprisingly easy for this monster to set up, and once that happens, chances are gg will appear on the chat. With one DD under its belt it outspeeds al unboosted pokes up to Swellow at 125 base speed, which is basically everything bar Aerodactyl and Accelgor. From there it can enjoy firing off STAB Outrages from an attack stat higher than Entei at +1. If Steelix and Klingklang try to crash the party, Low Kick or Superpower will be waiting for them. So I believe A Rank is fine for Haxorus' little brother.
I agree with this. Fraxure is quite an underrated threat in this meta. With Eviolite, it has a chance to grab at least one DD boost in. With that, Outrage wrecks shit like there's no tomorrow. Low Kick is a great asset, which can deal with the steel. Taunt ensures that Tangrowth isn't gonna put status on it. It's a truly amazing Pokemon. I agree with it for A-Rank
