Also, I would like to nominate claydol for C-Rank. It honestly isn't that bad. It is the only rapid spinner resistent to SR and immune to both T-spikes and spike, while having shadow ball to hit ghost. It's typing, while certainly having it's drawbacks, offers an immunity to electric and resistense to fighting, two very important types. Access to SR allow it to set up stealth rocks, while its base 75 speed is good for a wall. It has it's drawbacks, but D-rank is to low.
I'll do some more playtesting and come back to see if I can back this up. From what I know, I use Claydol myself and find it okay.
That said, Escavalier should be B-Rank
imo. He's a POWERHOUSE, to put it bluntly. His CB boosted Megahorn hits so damn hard that there is almost nothing
that can avoid a legitimate 2HKO from Escavalier, not even Slowbro. The things that wall Escav are pretty shitty Pokemon anyways, so it's not like it's a big deal. Iron Head is nice STAB to boot (Fuck Crobat). Escavalier is one hell of a nuke, tbh. Escavalier also has a neat defensive typing in Bug / Steel and good 70 / 105 / 105 bulk. This somewhat outshines Escavalier's pisspoor Speed stat. This also allows Escavalier to check some dangerous Pokemon such as Roserade, Shaymin, and Weavile. Pursuit is also pretty cool, and Esca can trap lots of shit. Pretty solid Pokemon overall, move it to B-Rank
, k thanks.
