Honest question.
It was never tested in OU as far as I can tell, so how can we be sure that it would be too powerful in that tier?

Multiscale.
Roost.
130 base Defense.
154 base Special Defense.
Any more questions?
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

Yes.
Multiscale is negated by SR and sand/hail damage, both of which are very common.
Roost actually makes Lugia vulnerable to Bug (Scizor's U-Turn says hello) so it's not as good as it sounds.
Its defensive type sucks and 90/90 offenses are pitiful.

I still don't see what's so good that the very thought of Lugia being merely tested in OU is a sin.

Because we're talking Smogon here (or competitive in general)...

Okay. Now actually read that. He can stall out EXTREME KILLER ARCEUS without Multiscale.
