[OVERVIEW]

Magcargo has access to a decent utility movepool and has good physical bulk. However, it has a bad HP stat, is weak of all entry hazards, and is prone to being Taunted by the likes of Jellicent and Aggron due to its low Speed. Furthermore, its typing hinders it, as its 4x weakness to Water- and Ground-type attacks make it easy for Jellicent and Mudsdale to take care of Magcargo, and its other weaknesses to Fighting- and Rock-types attacks leave it vulnerable to Pokemon like Gurdurr and Aggron. It is outclassed by Stealth Rock users like Clefairy, Mudsdale, and Regirock because of their better typing, esistance or immunity to Stealth Rock, and better abilities like Magic Guard and Stamina.

[SET]
name: Stealth Rock
move 1: Recover
move 2: Stealth Rock
move 3: Toxic / Yawn
move 4: Lava Plume
item: Leftovers
ability: Flame Body
nature: Calm
evs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD

[SET COMMENTS]

Magcargo's goal is to set Stealth Rock, spread status to Pokemon, and stall them out with Recover, as having reliable recovery is one niche it does have as well as Flame Body to help scare out physical attackers. However, it has a hard time doing this because of its low Speed and its 4x weaknesses to Water- and Ground-types. Stealth Rock users like Clefairy, Mudsdale, and Regirock outclass this Pokemon because of their typing, better bulk, and better abilities like Magic Guard and Stamina.

[OVERVIEW]
Magcargo has access to Recovery, Stealth Rock, good movepool and has good bulk. However, it has a bad HP stat, Stealth Rock weak from its Fire-typing (redundant, people know fire types are weak to rocks, remove), and prone to be taunted due to its low Speed (taunted by which mons?). It is outclassed by Stealth Rock users like Omastar (omastar is not the best example of a stealth rocker, its an offensive shell smasher, mudsdale would be fine) as its Water-typing helps it against Ground-types like Regirock (i would remove this because omastar isnt the best example). (mention its horrible defensive typing, x4 weak to water and grass)

Its goal is to set Stealth Rock and spread Toxic while Recovering to cripple Pokemon (attempts to cripple what mons?). However, it has a hard time during (doing) this due to its low Speed, and its x4 weaknesses to Water- and Ground-types. Stealth Rock users like Omastar outclass this Pokemon due to its better Special Attack stat allowing it to threaten Pokemon like Regirock and Altaria. (omastar isnt the best example)

[OVERVIEW]
Magcargo has access to Recovery, Stealth Rock, good movepool (would rather say a decent utility movepool) and has good bulk (specify physical tho). However, it has a bad HP stat, Stealth Rock weak from its Fire-typing, and prone to be taunted due to its low Speed. It is outclassed by Stealth Rock users like Omastar as its Water-typing helps it against Ground-types like Regirock :blobglare::blobglare::blobglare:. (also make this more about regirock/mudsdale/clefairy as defensive rockers, far better typings and bulk)

(pls mention its godawful typing somewhere, it's like 90% of the reason why it's so bad)

[SET]
name: Stealth Rock
move 1: Recover
move 2: Stealth Rock

move 4: Lava Plume

Its goal is to set Stealth Rock and spread Toxic while Recovering to cripple Pokemon (change wording, makes it sound like you're using recover to cripple pokemon). However, it has a hard time during this due to its low Speed, and its x4 weaknesses to Water- and Ground-types. Stealth Rock users like Omastar outclass this Pokemon due to its better Special Attack stat allowing it to threaten Pokemon like Regirock and Altaria. (again, mention rockers other than just omastar)

Magcargo has access to a decent utility movepool and has good physical bulk. However, it has a bad HP stat, Stealth Rock weak from its Fire-typing (make this more about how it's weak to all entry hazards), and prone to be taunted by the likes of Jellicent and Aggron due to its low Speed. Futhermore, its typing hinders it as it x4 weakness to Water- and Ground-types makes it easy to take care of by Jellicent and Mudsdale (other typings like rock and fighting are common offensively too). It is outclassed by Stealth Rock users like Clefairy, Regirock, and Mudsdale because of their better typing and are not crippled by Stealth Rock (clef and mudsdale also have far better abilities)

Its goal is to set Stealth Rock, spread Toxic (say status, since toxic is slashed with yawn)to Pokemon, and stall them out with Recover(specify that reliable recovery is one niche it does have). (flame body is situational but it is another small niche it has for handling physical mons)However, it has a hard time doing this because of its low Speed, and its x4 weaknesses to Water- and Ground-types. Stealth Rock users like Clefairy, Mudsdale, (random double space here)and Regirock outclass this Pokemon because of their typing, better bulk and better abilities like Magic Guard and Stamina.
