It gets a Water type Crunch, Liquidation, late game.

One of the others being that I'm a sucker for spiders.
Yeah, god damn. I was reading some number testing and it even freaking out damages Keldeo with Hydro Pump. Like.. holy shit. It basically has Thick Fat, super Adaptability, and Water Veil all in one ability? Who approved that? On top of that it has absolute sick Sp.Def, and Assault Vest + Leech Life makes it obscene. Especially with that Leech Life boost. You can also run it for Doubles with Wide Guard + Entrainment.

Water types got soooo much good shit this gen. Hello rain, my old friend.
