I have to agree with this. Slowking checks (if not counters) almost anything Slowbro does, while also being a much better initial switch in to Kingdra Slowbro ever was. Slowking can switch into Specs Draco Meteor, and eat a +1 Outrage followed by just switching back out and healing thanks to Regenerator. Slowking also has Dragon Tail which in addition to breaking Kingdra's substitute 100% of the time is just an all-around great move. If you set up spikes, Dragon Tail becomes a great way to get hazard damage on common switch-ins like Zapdos, Shaymin, or others. Slowbro on the other hand can't work off of hazard damage like this, it has to rely on using offensive attacks like Fire Blast or Ice Beam to try and damage its switch-ins, who then get a chance to use a healing move as Slowbro switches back out. EDIT: I also agree with Victini being S-rank. Yeah, it's stealth rock and pursuit weak, but its pros outweigh this considerably. It's not impossible to keep Stealth Rock off the field early-game, and most pursuiters require you to sac something to get them in safely anyways. In addition to this, V-Create is absurdly powerful shit, and the fact that it can be backed up by any number of attacks including Bolt Strike, Focus Blast, Psychic, Grass Knot, Brick Break, or Zen Headbutt, and also has U-turn to safely switch out and keep up momentum is pretty awesome.
