Can Bastiodon be good as a special attacker, or would Physical be better?

I'm running a gimmick set in Platinum's Frontier where I'm using Pokemon that can function well both defensively and offensively. My set so far is Gastrodon, Gallade, Noctowl, Tangrowth, and Porygon Z (The exception to my rule, I just like the Pokemon.) My question is, should I gear Bastiodon (the last Pokemon I have to set up.) towards Physical or Special attacks. It's offensive stats are close together but still low and it's Special movepool is pretty big. Any opinions.
Sister-How would you feel if you were playing a game, and in that game, Mario was a baby? Me-I'd be playing Yoshi's Island, so I would be feeling great.

There's practically no difference, so go with it. However, I'd recommend status moves like toxic over any offensive moves, since as you said Bastiodon has crap offense.
Apparently, I'm nobody.

Bastiodon is a defensive Pokémon. It's almost a sitting duck offensively. If you want to do damage with a Bastiodon, use Metal Burst.
When it comes to Pokemon, I like Generation V over Generation I. Flame me.

I was thinking maybe a mixed set. Quiet nature with Avalanche, Metal Burst, Thunderbolt, and either Taunt or Flamethrower.
