Why not Gyro Ball over Power Whip?

Reliability, I suppose. I'm going to be doing a lot less damage if my opponent decides to send in a slow, bulky Pokemon.

True, Slowbro would wall it pretty bad, but I suppose that's what Leech Seed is for. Not like he'd be able to do much else to you after he comes in.

EDIT: Actually, I forgot Slowbro was LOLGENWUN, so he does get Flamethrower... eh, either way, I wouldn't stay in on him.

4 SpA Slowbro Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 252 SpD Ferrothorn: 188-224 (53.4 - 63.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

So yeah, I see what you mean there. But then again:

+3 4 Atk Ferrothorn Power Whip vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Slowbro: 414-488 (105 - 123.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO

So if I got Curse off at least 3 times, I could probably take it down, Otherwise, I'd have to switch.

Replace curse with something better, and use a zoom lens.

I used curse to compensate for the lack of Defenses and the attack boost. I've also decided to run Gyro Ball over Power Whip, since I'll be breeding for a 0 Speed IV.
