On Gabite Good to see others recognizing this thing! Gabite is one of the better Dragons in PU at the moment, being able to set up Rocks with impunity, and packing a great speed and a strong Earthquake (not much to say about his Outrage, since its pretty much dense air in comparison to Zweilous'.) to pick off other leads like Gigalith and Graveler. Its bulk is great, and has an amazing ability for a defensive mon in Rough Skin, allowing it to rack up damage on U-Turners, which is always nice. Its great typing also gives it a Fire-Type resist, a neutrality to Grass- and Water-, and an immunity to Electric-. This makes it the best Rapidash check in the tier, resisting its STAB, and either being immune to or resisting its most common coverage moves. WhiteDMist is correct: The mon is very versatile, being able to set up rocks, act as a great defensive pivot against VolTurn, and hit hard to pick off enemy Fire- and Dragon-Types all in the course of a match. I do agree that the Choice Band variant has its merits, it is pretty much outclassed by Zweilous, who hits so much harder than Gabite. Scarf is an option, as it allows Gabite to outspeed Golduck and pick it off easily. Its great coverage also exemplifies this, making Gabite a capable revenge killer. With this, I nominate Gabite for A-Rank along with WhiteDMist. It's just a good mon, one of the best offensive hazard setters in the tier. On this note, I would like to address a mon I've been using to set up my rocks: Marshtomp The first thing that interested me about Marshtomp was that its typing gave it only a single, fairly uncommon weakness in Grass-, as well as a useful immunity to Electric-. In many ways, it does the same job as Gabite, just not as quickly. Water- Type STAB is very, very good against leads in PU, and with Attack investment, Marshtomp can 2HKO Gigalith and Graveler with Waterfall or Earthquake. Its good bulk with Eviolite and lack of weaknesses sans Grass- allow it to take a few hits and set up rocks with ease. The downside, however, is that Marshtomp is very slow, and many Scarfed Water-Types tend to carry Hidden Power (Grass), making him fairly easy to pick off. For this reason, I nominate Marshtomp for B Rank. He's a reliable hazard setter for more balanced teams, while Gabite does its job better on faster, more offensive teams.
