Gotta love Farfetch'd. I'm holding out for a flying/fighting evolution next gen.

I mean I still use all three of those Pokemon because I love them -gives all three of his Pokemon a big hug-

But I'm well aware they aren't considered powerful Pokemon.

I usually don't limit myself to in-game. I meant, like in Black or White, you can trade in a Poochyena egg and use it there. But even in gen 3, Mightyena still works. INTIMIDATE, Iron Tail, Return, Shadow Ball....

It had a relatively early evolution, meaning it was at its final stage while most pokemon were at their first or second stage. So for a short period, it had great stats. It quickly got overshadowed, though. Its only use post-Flannery or so was Intimidate (which is more than scrubs like Illumise can say).
