    No I thought about him. His Special Attack isn't affected but his Speed is. Normal STAB isn't good vs. all the Rock and Steel juggernauts in this meta. And support wise he gets T-wave or Toxic and Knock Off.

    Offensively he's crippled by Slow Start and defensively he's pretty mediocre.

    He just doesn't really jump out as a legitimate threat.

    Unfortunately he has no special normal stab -_- He can use focus blast, which has amazing coverage in this meta, though.

    I just realized an incredible potential sweeper in ferrothorn

    Ferrothorn @ Iron Plate
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Serious Nature
    IVs: 0 Spd
    - Gyro Ball
    - Curse
    - Protect
    - Leech Seed

    with base stats of 74/131/94/116/54/20 it can curse up its attack and defence and lower its speed to make gyro ball incredible


    EDIT: Fail did not see someone else say this
