Point taken. Slightly modified the write-up. I think Mid-Tier is a bit low considering its abilities, it is probably fair considering how hard it is to get. Usually got fairly lucky - saved right outside the Breeding Center, moved up and down, and had to restart maybe three times to get it. The original idea was that it doesn't suck completely, takes a bit of work to get to, but then is usually fairly versatile, and it is gotten very early.
