What do others think of Absol in-game? It'll have Swords Dance + Night Slash by lv 41 (which the max lvl upon catching it is 41), can get Psycho Cut + Sucker Punch by 52, X-scissor by TM, Superpower with 10 shards, and can learn quick attack with a heart scale. Lastly, if you find yourself giving Absol a lot of SpA ev's, you can try fire blast.
I've never thought about using it until now, but I think it could wreak some havoc in-game. The cons I see are the need to set up each time (for clean OHKO's that is) and it would need some item support, such as ethers for Sucker Punch (E4 use). Cofagrigous will probably try to Wil-o-Wisp it, but Absol could hold a Rawst Berry and use SD in its face. Most AI's just want to attack you, so Sucker Punch seems like child's play.
Speaking all in theory, so I would currently give it lower-mid. It may not be as efficient as I think and it is already outclassed by Krookodile because it's faster, bulkier, comes earlier, and reliably strong with moxie. Absol only seems better if you want to sneak in a sucker punch on a Haxorus that's in the middle of rampaging your team.
Just some food for thought because I'm not sure there's been any discussion about it.
