Could Baton Pass be used effective for weaker Pokemon?

I don't want it banned. It'd be fun to Baton Pass Speed over to something such as a Nidoking and Golem and watch it beat up a team. I wouldn't say it's too broken then. I hate how people want it banned. -_- Anyone else here feel the same?

Why did you lock your other topic and then open this one?

Nidoking beats up teams already.

Just play by rules where it isn't banned.

Keep in mind tough, that baton passing is kinda shaky and gets shakier the more your team relies on it. Nidoking can also do just fine as it is, as long as you don't pit it against Greninja or something.

Baton pass is a gimmick that only works if you build your team specifically to counter its counters

That gimmick you're referring to managed to get #2 on the showdown ladder though.

Why batton pass to a weak pokemon to make ir mediocre when you can make a strong pokemon even stronger?
