Similarly, Bisharp has an innate level advantage over Marlon(52+ vs. ~50), so I'm not sure if that should count positively towards its ranking, especially when Bisharp's type matchup is neutral and it's actually pretty fucked up by the specialty of Humilau Gym (Scald burn). I can see it beating Jellicent without much problems, Carracosta might be ok if it decides not to Scald (which from experience, I'm pretty sure all Carra does is to smash on turn 1, and then still die after being outsped on turn 2)
The latter part post-Marlon seems ok to me imo.
When did I say anything like that? All I said was that it needs to evolve to be effective. Trust me, I know. Also, since when is "overleveling" something that's consider a negative thing?
I'm also not sure if you think its rank should be higher or lower than Mid. None of which make sense for it; it's clearly a Middle Tier Pokémon.
Also, the levels are 46, 46, and 48.
