It was an oversight, but it's not totally wrong. Cradily can break even with Sandstorm up or if it runs its "Smogon Standard" set (Toxic, SR, Recover, Attack with 252 HP and Def).

It's not like a perfect counter, but it SHOULD do the trick in a good number of cases. If Throh has like a Bulk Up or two out when Cradily hits the board though, it'll probably lose. I'm fine with not calling it a hard counter, but its at least a check in favorable winds.

This is a signature that doesn't eat up an absurd amount of space.
