    Second, you won't ever see Gliscor / Landorus in LC.




    To be fair the Smogon LC analysis are terrible. Most of them were done by badgehunters who didn't actually know the metagame and just BSed stuff.
    No wonder everything (well almost) in their analysis were "weird" in the LC sections

In fact, a 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Impish Eviolite Rhydon in Sand is looking at about 105 / 205 / 113 equivalent defenses, which is pretty insane. Not that I'm saying you should use Rhydon in OU Sand, but you can get an idea of just how bulky he really is.

    If only he got Solid Rock, and if only Solid Rock reduced weaknesses by 50% instead of 25%...
    And, thus, the reason why rhydon should be a cornerstone on ou sand....it...is...amazing......like taking down dragons and toppling mountains...that sort of amazing...
    just a quick note: it may be super bulky, but grass and water type bulky mons still give it trouble...like rotom for example...

    Nah, I was just bragging on its raw bulk for bragging's sake. Ground, Fighting, Water, Grass, Steel, and Ice attacks are plentiful enough in OU that Rhydon is virtually always going to be under some sort of offensive pressure from the opponent's team. Not to mention that it lacks any sort of recovery outside of Rest. To be honest, Rhyperior's access to Solid Rock, ability to hold Leftovers, and extra bit of power make it more effective on OU teams, and even then you'd be better off using a host of other Pokemon.
