Its attack is higher than its special attack. As for band and stuff, I generally like more versitile sets. Leech Life is SE against stuff that might resist water. Plus sometimes the element of surprise can win things.

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.
What happened to Gale Wing? I heard all the -ite abilities (Pixilate, etc) got reduced damage boosts. Part of why I like Araquanid is potential Doubles craziness. I'm pumped. I wanna use one on either a singles or doubles team so bad.
