Payback shouldn't be a OHKO anyway, if memory serves me right.

I wasn't Spamming revives, mind you. I used a few during the entire E4 challenge. You never use any in-game? Good for you, I guess? I'm just not as good as you, I suppose.
Keep in mind, this thread, and Pokemon in general, is just a silly child's game, played for fun. The fact that some of us adults still love to play it doesn't change that. If I get through he E4 using, say, 6 revives or something, do I have less fun than if I get through using 0? Does that mean I get more points/better rewards? Nope. Same result. In Pokemon, it's win or lose. In this case, the only factors are ease and time spent. 5 Battles are nothing compared to the thousands of others you take part in during any one playthough.
Golurk for Low, whatever floats your boat. I'm not gonna lose sleep over it. I think you ought to use one before bashing it is all.
