- Accelgor is more than fast enough to beat the majority of the unboosted tier without a choice scarf
- beats everything up to Scarf Medicham with a timid nature
- Unlike the Choice Scarf users like Emboar and Rotom-C, Accelgor can switch moves and use a Life Orb while still being able to perform its revenge killing role
- Many Pokemon such as Mesprit, Sceptile, and Lilligant are weak to Accelgor's Bug-type STAB, making it easier to revenge kill them.
- because of the aforementioned combination of natural speed and ability to switch moves/hold life orb Accelgor can even countersweep in some circumstances
- Weakness to priority and residual damage hinders Accelgor a little bit
