I think that nidoking would use the move better. I found the rockslide tutor

I don't think rock slide helps Nidoking very much regardless of whether you're battling in-game trainers or other people, especially because rock music was partly replaced by pop music :P. For in-game, Nidoking needs only earthquake, surf, and maybe shadow ball or ice beam to 2HKO most things. I think you should save the tutor in case you ever get a Pokemon that really needs rock slide, like Machamp, Dugtrio, Marowak, or Aerodactyl.
