I mean really, They say Drizzle + Swift Swim is banned! But how is that any different from
Drought + Chlorophyll? I guess they kinda dropped the ball there, but if you want, Discuss.

No chlorophyll user gets double STAB from sun the way swift swim users do from rain.

Ah I see, well thanks for the info.

Swift Swim users get Double STAB AND Double Speed.

No Chlorophyll user is Fire-type, therefore they don't get double STAB They're all Grass-type as well, meaning the power of a type they're weak to gets boosted.

That's what makes Swift Swim different from Chlorophyll and Sand Rush.

Surf on a swift swimmer(doubled speed)

Pretty terrifying.

Swift Swim pokemon are simply better than Chlorophyll pokemon generally.
