Hariyama is severely underrated

144 HP and 120 Atk make him an extremely versatile Physical Wall/Physcial Sweeper. Sheer Force makes him even better.

Sadly his Defenses are pretty low but his high HP stat more than make up for it.

I used to have one on my team until Scrafty and Sawk came around but I still keep mine on the reserves list when I need bulk

I agree. For some reason, it is now one of the few Pokemon to have access to SubPunch, and even gets STAB on it. But apparently, it's not good enough for Smogon! -_-

When I first started playing Ruby back in 2003, Makuhita was the second Pokemon I caught (after a Wurmple that evolved into a Beautifly)

Anyway, to make a long story short, this was basically my team by the time I got to the elite 4

Hariyama level 80-something
Gulpin level 22
Grovyle level 18
Beautifly level 30 something
Tropius level...whatever level he was when I caught him
Groudon level whatever level he started at.

I was very confused as to how I had gotten to this point, so I just started over xD

But yeah, for a brief period, Hariyama was the king of my team lol

Hariyama was my first shiny Pokemon, so I use it occasionally, especially with the Guts/Flame Orb combination.

I never understood why Somgon hates Hariyama

Then get out there and prove Hariyama's worth. Tiers are based on usage, so prove to people that he's worth it. >_<

But ya, Hariyama is sweet. Used one on an old Sapphire playthrough, he was great.

I use Hariyama on my UU team. It's there for a powerful physical attacker, and it does really well. I've had one on at least three different teams because I think it's really underrated.

I use it when doing UU. my Sawk is preferable. Because of hu s higher speed and atk but honestly I think Hariyama is better than Throh when it comes to bulk

Because it's out classed, Conkeldurr does the whole bulky fighting type better.

Even Conkeldurr isn't all that effective in OU.
