Yeah, it might have some mediocre stats, but Water Bubble more than makes up for it.

It gets a Water type Crunch, Liquidation, late game. So couple that with an immunity to Burn, and double the base damage (170 Base Power with a defense drop on the opposing Pokemon for Liquidation), plus the fact that "all water moves" includes the water z move, and you can see some of the reasons that Araquanid is one of my favorites this gen. One of the others being that I'm a sucker for spiders.
