Similar to my earlier question, but on the rodents instead. Which one of them is the strongest and most viable competitively?

  1. Raticate
  2. Furret
  3. Linoone
  4. Bibarel
  5. Watchog
  6. Diggersby
  7. Gumshoos
  8. Greedent

I don't think any of them are extremely good competitively, I'm just curious.

What format?
Linoone has the amazing belly drum extremespeed and I've seen it the most
So linoone is probably the best
You could try something like
- belly drum
- play rough (for fighting)
- throat chop (for ghost which are immune to extreme speed)
- extreme speed
Rabbits aren’t even rodents...
Well yeah I guess they're not, I just couldn't come up with a better name for the squirrel / ferret / rat type of Pokemon they have in each region
Honestly it depends on the type of battler you are Brawler (descive and alot of damage) should go with raticate There's also type brawlers who use a mix of types ( use linoone thunder surf dig  and Blizzard) I don't know about a tank trainer ( use Pokemon's that can take what they diss out) probably diggersby

Diggersby @ Choice Band/Life orb
Ability: Huge Power
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk
Adamant Nature
- Iron Head/Quick attack
- Body Slam
- Earthquake
- Knock Off

Diggersby is arguably the best regional rodent (are rabbits even rodents), it has the overpowered ability huge power, combine huge power and choice band you get the Wrath of a thousand gods. If you want to be able to use more than one move per switch, you can easily just use life orb over choice band which would make it a revenge killer if you choose quick attack over Iron head. It's not really that strong but it's the best regional rodent, that's why it's in RU.

Don’t you mean the choice band, not the focus band?
OK I'll fix it, thanks.
It's move set exposes to flying types that can learn a fighting move hawlucha and staraptor close combat by either of those two destroys it
