It's not just Battlespot.

Talonflame is literally everywhere. I don't know what they were smoking when the decided to give an already really fast Pokemon freaking priority Brave Bird.

You're right. All that speed just goes to waste with Priority. They should've given Talonflame a high attack stat instead.

There's clearly a balancing issue when people frequently run a 4x Rock Weak mon, I mean even popular mons like Volcarona, Charizard Y and ****ing Ho-Oh get a lot of flak for being 4x weak to SR despite their obvious strength.
Yeah 81 Atk, so what, there aren't a lot of non-defencive mons that can survive 2x Choice'd Brave Burd that don't already resist Flying, and even then there's Steel Wing, Flare Blitz, U-Turn, Swords Dance, Roost.... holy jebus GF? Do you even test this ****?

This. Would you really want to see a
100 | 150 | 90 | 50 | 90 | 20
Talonflame with Priority Brave Bird?

Flying is bad offensively. If it is copypasta movesets, I see it doing worse since it won't be able to Flare Blitz or U-Turn without getting hit. Yeah it has bulk, but it also has crappy typing.

Choice Band Aerodactly shrugs off Talonflame.
Regular Aerodactyl laughs at it.
Brave bird and Flare Blitz will do only half damage even if Talonflame has choice band.
