What gen 4 or 5 pokemon would suck if there wasn't a physical special split?

I was playing platinum and realized shinx wouldn't be quite as good and started wondering what pokemon wouldn't have been as good without the split

Weavile
Dragons would still suck

Garchomp.

Feraligatr, who admittedly still needs Sheer Force, was pretty much terrible before the split.

EDIT: Whoops. My bad. Didn't notice that you just meant Gen 4 and 5 Pokemon. Then in that case, Sawsbuck who, again, still isn't that good.

Mamoswine would be much less useful with a special Ice Shard.

Its fine if you want to name older ones. It's just that we generally know them because they sucked in the earlier games. I figure Gliscor wouldn't be as good. Both his stabs would be physical still but without the elemental fangs for coverage he would suffer a bit

Darmanitan. Sure, he isn't the best, but he would suck a lot harder if he couldn't use that Physical Flare Blitz.

Galvantula would lose useful coverage in Bug Buzz.

Lucario would be purely physical and lose out on a bit of his unpredictability.

Garchomp would lose his amazing Dragon STAB.

Anatidaephobia is the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you, staring into your soul, using its duckiness.
QUACK.

Kyurem-B would commit suicide. :(

Actually... I don't think he'd be that much different now. He'd still be OU or at least Borderline since he still has a fairly respectable special stat and Choice Spec'd Draco Meteors do hurt a lot. He would get a physical Earth Power out of the deal, though.

Zekrom, on the other hand...
