no mention of Tyranitar???

He can also go both ways, but physical is best for the T-rex.

How do you guys forget Gyarados (physical) and Salamence (physical, special, or mixed)?

Lucario can definitely work as a special sweeper. Sure, it won't have Close Combat, but Aura Sphere is an very uncommon move that can seriously mess some Pokemon up and Lucario is the best user of the move due to STAB. His SAtk is actually slightly higher than his Attack.

Special sweepers...wait, where's Alakazam? You can't forget about a Pokemon who throws Psychic out there better than anything not named Mewtwo and has been since Gen. I. He does it quickly with lots of power and has Signal Beam to do something to Dark types and fellow Psychics that try to switch in on its Psychic onslaught.

Salamence is already up there, Gyarados isn't though, so you got that right.

Alakazam is outclassed by Azelf, so that's why you don't see him often.
