I'm puzzled by this. It didn't initially have an awesome ability and it's not like it's explosively powerful, so there has to be some reason they made him so frail. defenses are lower than butterfree's.

Maybe because it's based partially on a torpedo and it is really only half of a shark? I can't really think of anything.

Reason enough for Sharpedo to get an evo though.

If that happens, I'm kicking Crawdaunt off my Dark team.

The more damage it takes, the more its ability will hurt the opponent.

...Though the recoil from Rough Skin IS too low. It's probably why Sharpedo's defense is so low.

GameFreak knew that they were going to make a better shark so they didn't bother with Sharpedo.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
