Pokemon you wish were viable competively

#1SirLezdainPosted 3/17/2013 10:45:24 PM
If Pokemon has one failing (aside from a stagnant combat system), it's that it has plenty of really cool looking Pokemon but so few are viable in a competitive scene. So if you could pick one Pokemon that could hang with the big boys (Garchomp, Dragonite, etc.), what would it be?

My pick is Sandslash.

Sandslash can actually do decently on an OU sand team, he does have Sand Rush.

Well charizard is already pretty great in CU.

I'd say Lapras.

I'd joke and say Braviary...but he actually does have some uses in...UU I think it is.

Probably Marowak, I haven't really found a use for one, but it's one of my favorite Gen 1 Pokemon

Completely forgot about Marowak, but I'd rank him higher than Sandslash.

This. I had a Trick Room team back in 4th gen, and Marowak was an absolutely beast on it. Absolutely beast.

As for my answer, Ampharos.
