Yeah, kind of for good reason too. As a follow me user (which is its only real niche) it gets outclassed by things like Jirachi and Amoonguss. Jirachi has a much better typing, ability and utility (gets things like thunder wave, trick room, helping hand a 60% chance to flinch iron head), while Amoonguss acts as a great rain and trick room check, puts on pressure with spore and has a much better ability. Blastoise is very passive and not tremendously bulky. Neither regular or mega blastoise are ranked in DOU, but Mega Blastoise is in tier 1 (essentially S Rank) in DUU and non mega is tier 1.5. Really shows how without being outclassed by the premier redirectors and not having to take hits from stupidly powerful mons like Lando-T and Mega Kang Blastoise can be pretty strong. The only reason I'm running him on my team is that I needed a Follow Me user that doesn't get utterly destroyed by Zard Y, but I mean my teams a perish trap team so it's not like it's super competitive to start with. Still yet to lose with it though so fingers crossed I guess lol.
