Nowhere near as broken as most noob players think. The move is perfectly fine and no less competitive than Jirachi's Iron Head or Thundurus's Prankster Thunder Wave.
For starters, you need a reliably recovery move to make use of it. If you don't you just threw away a moveslot. If you do have a recovery move, then you better be able to have perfect coverage in 2 moves. Which means you can't run a second setup/support move, which means a smart opponent will setup on you with something like Calm Mind or Swords Dance while you spam DT. You will eventually get KO'd and the opponent then sweeps you.
I'm not against moves, abilities and items that increase evasion.
Is far from being a broken tactic. You lose turns to setup, a ability slot or another useful item, and isn't guaranteed that the enemy attack is going to miss.
If the enemy has increased his evasion stat, it can be removed with a forced switch (Whirlwind, Roar, Dragon Tail, Circle Trow, Red Card, Trick a Eject Button and attacking), Clear Smog, Haze, Heart Swap. For the abilities you can change the weather (all are weather based), Worry Seed, Gastro Acid, Simple Beam. And for the item you can use Trick, Switcheroo, Knock off, Embargo, Magic Room.
If the rival has a high evasion, you can nullify it using Odor Sleuth, Miracle Eye, Foresight, a high precision attack, a perfect accuracy attack, Hone Claws, Lock-On, Mind Reader, Heart Swap, No Guard, Compound Eyes, Victory Star, Wide Lens, Zoom Lens.
And for the lulz, you can use Psych Up or Heart Swap to give you these stats.
I use it on a Sand Veil Golem holding BrightPowder on my Sand Team in the PWT, and it's not remotely as broken as everybody claims it to be. Somehow the foes can still hit me with a Hydro Pump after two uses. --- Winner of ares9090's Slaking Award Official Scrafty and Barry of the B/W 2 Boards
