After using Slowking for awhile, I definitely think it deserves a slot on this list. At least C tier. It's one of the few solid switch-ins to Keldeo and Politoed, and is able to send off relatively powerful rain-boosted Surfs. It has a very wide variety of coverage and support moves, along with great resistances to common threats. Everyone knows it's a specially defensive Slowbro, and in a metagame filled with special attacks, that isn't a bad thing. Access to Regenerator and a solid recovery move in Slack Off increases its staying power to the max. It's a great tool to have especially against Rain teams, but it can take just about every special attack in the tier (it even forces Gengar to switch out due to the risk of Psyshock: 252 SpAtk Life Orb Gengar Shadow Ball vs 252 HP/252 SpDef Slowking (+SpDef) : 58.63% - 69.29% (2 hits to KO)). It even has something that Slowbro doesn't--Nasty Plot. Something that can act as a wonderful special tank can also turn around and be a really threatening sweeper (but really only under Trick Room). There really isn't anything else that plays the same roles as Slowking since it has such a unique typing; and Slowbro can't even dream of taking powerful special hits. EDIT: The downside between it and Slowbro is that it can be Pursuit trapped by TTar more easily. Also Chandelure has the interesting niche of being able to switch into Scizor, no matter its set. It's also a great check to Lucario since it resists both its priority moves + Close Combat, which is only shared by Jellicent I believe (who more often than not will be slower and at risk of Crunch). Its Scarf set has sweeping potential and is actually quite powerful: 252 SpAtk Chandelure (+SpAtk) Fire Blast vs 0 HP/0 SpDef Landorus: 87.77% - 103.76% (Guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock). It's a good spinblocker, and isn't overshadowed by Gengar in the way that it doesn't really mind Forretress' Gyro Ball. It can 2HKO Tentacruel with Psychic, but like Gengar, is OHKO'd by Starmie. Also, Flame Body has the same burn chance as Scald, so Scizor has to be super careful in spamming U-turn. I want to say it's C rank, but its vulnerability to TTar is quite large and it can't spam either of its STABs until its gone. But the same thing can be seen with Lati@s I guess. EDIT: It also checks Breloom quite efficiently. With Sleep Talk, it becomes wonderful Spore fodder for the likes of Amoonguss and Breloom.
