this is correct however, that's not the primary reasons why lando-t should be top 10. lando-t should be up there simply because it's a pokemon of absolute consistency. it's one of those mons that can adapt to any metagame and is one of the first few mons that we consider when making a team. that in itself is a huge statement as to why lando-t should be up there. sure, it isn't something that influences the metagame by being stupidly powerful and warping the environment around it (e.g the top 3 titans), but i think it's deserving of a top 10 slot at the bare minimum just because it's consistency did not wane throughout the past 2.5 years as it managed to adapt to the ever changing and threat-filled metagame we call 6th gen.Not related to this mon, but seriously how the fuck does keeping in check one of the most powerful behemoths(Char-X) doesnt qualify for Lando-T as influential?What more influence does a pivot needs?He basically INFLUENCES the metagame to not be overcentralized as hell towards that mon by being incredible splashable alongside having a stupidly great role compression, somehow hating popular mons tends to be a current trend, anyways needed to get that out of my chest.
Every team should be running a Steel-type regardless of Latios's existence.Latios
Basically forces every team to run a steel type or Clefable
Rocks drill is really niche and Excadrill usually has better things to do than set up rocks (and it's bad at that because it doesn't beat any hazard remover).Talonflame, for reasons mentioned in my last post.
Also, I'm very late with this, but everyone who said it was impossible to put up rocks vs. Mega Sableye needs more SR Mold Breaker Excadrill in their lives.
