I mean, most of the tier is slower than max Speed Cryogonal anyways, and its bulk allows it to set up triple screens vs faster threats that can't dent it enough and some slower threats that are super effective as well. Of the things that can actually threaten it, it only underspeeds Salazzle (which it can still at least get Veil up on, as long as you don't let it set up on Aurorus by clicking Encore t1), Durant, and Aerodactyl. Outside of that and weather setters, it's actually rather consistent at getting up at least Veil + a screen if not all three, and that enables SO much harder than just AVeil itself. It can also threaten Mantine with Freeze-Dry, unlike Slash which just gives it free Defog immediately. I've also laddered with it a lot, with a "subpar" team, and I can confidently say that it's a lot more effective than Slash, especially if you don't play it like a brainless idiot like I did lmao I even have some replays: replays (Move your mouse to reveal the content) replays (open) replays (close) http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-625476115 - unkillable Linoone http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-625540465 - Cryo gets up two screens in the face of a Doublade http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-625570383 - lmao http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-625596826 - it took a fuckin moonblast and a devastating drake, cmon now I understand that these aren't the most high level of replays lmao, but it should get the general point and concept across - Cryo sets up screens pretty consistently and 4x defenses for ANY amount of turns on an offense team is utter absurdity lol So, all in all, I support Cryo moving up to at least B if not higher because this is really, really strong and it hasn't even been optimized yet. On an unrelated note, supporting Registeel -> S, Melo to A- and Quag to A-.
