C/D: Absol could use an evo.

The problem is that unless it has some unique ability or some move that stands out it will always be a crappier Weavile.

Not really. What's really holding Absol back is just its crappy stats (other than Attack, of course). Super Luck isn't a bad ability at all, and it already has a move that stands out: the strongest priority move in the game with Sucker Punch. An evolution that keeps its Attack stat the same but increases defenses and speed by ~25 each would be spectacular. Maybe not quite OU material, but definitely still something to watch out for.

I'd like to see it as a Dark/Psychic... since it has the ability to foretell natural disasters.

Make it look kind of old looking (shabby, long coat) with like a tribe elder/shaman kind of idea.

That would be awesome, givivg it Phychic as a secondary type. it would remove most of its weaknesses and gain awesome moves. hopefully a balance with its stats too. also C. Hopefully it won't look like Magmortar though. ugh.

Magmatar and Rhypherior make we wary of old pokemon getting new evos, but Electrive and Dusknoir look pretty good. I can see Absol becoming bipedal if it gets an evo for some reason.
