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.
I can't wait to see the hilarious things people pull off in doubles. People were running damage calcs swapping Water Bubble to Kyogre in the discovery thread, for example. Araquanid also gets Power Split if you want to do a defensive spread and then buff the Attack off of an opponent's physical sweeper. And they nerfed Gale Wing Talonflame hard this gen! It is a good gen for bugs!

Classic Gamefreak, I suppose. This isn't the first time they've left things out of descriptions, though it might be the biggest hidden buff ever.
