I don't like Amoonguss, so I use this guy instead.

There's a fine line between creative and outclassed.
I think this falls into the area of outclassed.

If you do not like Amoognuss, Tangela is the best substitute.
A Double Dance Terrakion works because it has excellent Attack and Speed, so uses Swords Dance when the opposing Scarfers and faster Pokemon are taken down and Rock Polish when they still stand. Rampardos doesn't have the Speed to pick and choose depending on the situation. And FOcus Sash just does not work without a Rapid Spinner to support it.
Meditite is far too slow for NU and is outclassed by the likes of Sawk and Emboar.
This....this...this will never work well.
Meditite?! Scraggy?! Man, this is worse than gimmicky O.O
Todo list:
- Sweep JCM with Magnemite
- Sweep JCM with Scraggy
- Sweep JCM with Meditite :]
Scraggy has a small (very small) niche use thanks to its bulkiness in NU. But I woluld take Throh or Gurdurr over it.
