Hold on, when someone makes a claim that a pokemon that has been for (pokemon) generations been considered one of the best in the game is inferior, surely the burden of proof falls on them to provide evidence. For example, and at an extreme, I can claim without proof that Scizor is superior to Scyther. Still, I did not make this claim or any about Tyranitar, but simply said these stats offer no proof to the superiority of one or the other. If we were to go by the logic employed by the poster who claimed otherwise, we would have to concede that Amoonguss is more useful than a great many pokemon. Rather, neither Hippo nor Amoonguss is as useful as the thread suggests and their inflated usage statistics are likely a by-product of a small sample size.
