Rhyperior lovers

I just didn't think Rhydon needed an evolution. At all. Rhyperior isn't really any better competitively than Rhydon was.

But I do like its design quite a bit. I've never used one, but it looks pretty badass.

Higher base stats and an actual useful Ability means, yes, it is better than Rhydon.

Lightningrod has SOME use in Double Battles I guess but Rock Head and Reckless have no use with its movepool so the introduction of Solid Rock really helps it take Ground, Fighting, and Steel attacks. Not to mention Lightningrod is useless in Single battles as well.

rhyperior was way too slow though


It has the exact same Speed as Rhydon. Aside from that though Rhyperior hits harder and is more durable, especially with Solid Rock.

He may not be a big enough improvement to grace OU but he is objectively a better Pokemon now.

yeah but with all the new offensive threats introduced in DPP rhyperior couldnt keep up. and im not saying rhyperior isnt better than rhydon, since that's pretty obvious. i'm just saying rhyperior aint a top tier threat and he likely never will be

I don't hate Rhyperior, I just greatly prefer Rhydon. Rhyperior's existence makes Rhydon better (Eviolite). I approve of Rhyperior.

When was it ever implied that he was?

People are allowed to like Pokemon that aren't top tier, you know. In addition, saying you like a Pokemon doesn't mean you think it is top tier either.
