I'm just thinking on whether to keep mine on my main team or not.

Pros

  • Good speed, and decent attack and defense.
  • Decent movepool consisting of Aqua Tail, Iron Tail, Superpower, Megahorn, X-Scissor, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Poison Jab, Double Edge, Pursuit and Swords Dance
  • Decent abilities in Swarm and Poison Point

Cons

  • Stealth Rock weakness
  • Completely unusable special attack and special defense
  • Can't put Quick Feet to use, because it can't be poisoned, and all the other status conditions severely cripple it
  • Outclassed by Pokemon such as Heracross

So I'd say keep it in-game, but drop it competitively. Hope I helped! :)
