3/10. I think it's a wannabe Swellow, Staraptor, and Charizard. I heard somewhere that Game Freak designed it just for competitive use, which rubs me the wrong way. Not a favorite of mine. I will give it points for not being Normal-Flying though.
9/10 I'm sad that Game Freak shafted Houndoom so badly by making it post-game exclusive in its own debut Generation. I haven't had the chance to use one, but its design and its type combination are cool enough.
