Not really, anymore. No Up Throw into grab makes him way less devestating, with no Tether Trap amd whatnot.
Good Cole is awesome now (he always was, but still). He needs one crucial buff (dC comes out like 2-3 frames faster) and one crucial nerf (Air uC doesn't spike the opponent down, because that's annoying and spammable) and he'd be awesomer. --- assets18.pokemon.com/assets/cms/img/video-games/pokemonxy/characters/pokemonxy_froakie.jpg
