I don't think it's unbalanced or anything, but making some effect team themes is difficult when I've got to run Forretress/Donphan on every god damn team.

Yeah a whopping of 10 Pokemon (most of which are weak to SR) that can even be used with 2 generations of Pokehopping.

That's like saying that evasion is fine - No Guard, Foresight/Odor Sleuth/Miracle Eye and perfect accuracy attacks exist.

Taunt, Rapid Spin, Defog, Magic Mirror, Magic Bounce, etc.

Alternatively stop using Charizard, Scyther, Articuno, etc. on the same team.

Never said SR was, "fine". Just gave an option for TC to consider. Crobat with Defog can also learn hypnosis which works decent since Defog lowers evasion one stage and also roost to remove SR damage.

Only 4 Pokemon can have Magic Bounce. Defog is a poor means of handling it, as mentioned. Taunt works if you're faster than the Stealth Rock-er only. Rapid Spin is still the most effective choice.
