only thing is it itself is weak to the more common spread attacks (surf, eq, rock slide) so pair it with a wide guard user for best results
Speaking of double battles, always use Rockslide. Bull doze is better then earthquake then(IIRC), and if you are using zen mode, always have it's partner trick room.
It is a great friend with Bronzong then, being resistant to Fire moves, while having earhquake and extra powerful bulldoze.
