You kind of can't proclaim you know exactly the best way to use Cloyster and I don't know what I'm talking about and say that Cloyster is complete garbage at the same time. That doesn't make sense.
I personally think that Cloyster is best as a late-game sweeper with Adamant NeverMeltIce and Screens+Spikes support. If Scarf Terrakion stops me every 200th game that it is used against me late-game... oh well.
Well with Adamant not only Scarf Terrakion is going to stop your sweep, but Scarf Keldeo, Scarf Jirachi, and Scarf Garchomp too. Anyway it can work for you sure, but this doesn't make it any better than it is. Whatever i mentioned is a hard fact. Cloyster is hard to bring in, hard to set-up, easy to wall, and easy to revenge kill. There are very few offensive teams that he can fit in, and this is why its usage should be lower.
