let me start with the definition to the c rank
C Rank: Reserved for Pokemon who perform specific niches and can be effective given the right support, but either are incapable of performing well outside of that niche or are heavily dependent on that support.
mandibuzz is very similar to gastro in the aspect that both are niche counters to S rank threats
ghostceus can never 3hko
+1 4 SpA Arceus-Ghost Focus Blast vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Mandibuzz: 113-133 (26.71 - 31.44%) -- possible 4HKO
in fact mandibuzz has superior physical and special bulk (110/105/95) compared to gastrodon (111/68/82), which allows him to tank hits well even outside of ghostceus
mandibuzz also has much greater utility, with taunt, toxic and whirlwind
taunt is particularly signicficant as it means no pokemon can set up on it, most notably ferro who could spike all over something like lugia
seriously, if mandibuzz doesnt deserve a place in C rank, gastro shouldnt either
Oh wait gastro is d
Well I'd still recommend mandiuzz for c or d
