Skill Link makes Cloyster seem like a specialized weapon to me.

Technician fits that theme perfectly.

Technician CAN be better then skill link. Skill link is basically 125 power for the 5 hit moves. Technician is 75 - to like 160 something ( I do not feel like getting the exact amount right now ) Probability also dictates that the majority of its with be 2's or 3's. Its not just a 1/4 chance of getting a big hit, they have internal coding on probability the higher it goes.

I know all this because i used a tech cinccino in white 1 :P It was my gamble pokemon.

None of those abilities would be used over Skill Link.

Technician is absolutely not better than Skill Link (for the purposes that Cloyster uses it for, which is the same as what Cinccino uses it for). Technician is only stronger than Skill Link if the move hits 5 times, and that's obviously inconsistent and random, and not something that you can build a moveset around. Skill Link is what makes Cloyster successful at what it does.
