Outside of that, subcharge means you get to +6 or anything similar, effectively giving you two
KOs as soon as you get a switch on Ferro or his Scizor revenges something. That's pretty damn good right there.
What about Jirachi? What's a choiced Mag gonna do there? What about subCM? You want SubCharge for all those, except FirePunch users in which case both Mags aren't gonna help.
Actually, SpecsZone 2HKOes Rain Ferro. If Ferro uses Leech Seed or T-wave as you switch Magnezone in, then your Zone is boned and you have to switch out, giving Ferro free turns.
And on top of that, SpecsZone can do something that isn't trapping Ferrothorn.
SpecsZone > SubMag
SpecsZone helps, but he's still way too slow to do what you want him to do imo. If you're gonna use a steel trapper at least fully abuse it. If you want a volt switcher don't run scarfzone 'cause it's bad.
