But in UU he'll be a nice Sand sweeper, possibly alongside Sandslash if it ever gets released.

Yeah, Stoutland is a beast revenge killer, with awesome facial hair. He's double speed in the sand, and after one of your pokemon has fainted, retaliate reaches a phenomenal 210 BP. Ouch! Return is a good move/replacement, as, although not as poweful on the first turn, it will retain its 153 BP each turn. Crunch prevents it getting walled by ghosts, and fire fang does the same for steels.
