Yeah thats true.
But lowe was kinda ok. He is risky and doesnt guarantee a win. He still is okay being risky + low def.
Other mons like mgx make him useless nowadays!
I still think mgx and friends should be 3 turns. So like you can risk with lowemon on 2 turns or use mgx for 100% 3 turns win.
Also there is always an option of 2 lrs with 9+2 but trade off is having to use 2 mons for same effect.And they eat time.
Then we have those ftp lrs 5k dmg at turn 4. Bad but kinda acceptable because it doesnt steal time like others.
