It's won me quite a few matches to date, with some of my losses being attributed to Substitute Gengar causing issues and getting very lucky with Focus Blast hits.
I remember suggesting d-tail somewhere in the past but everybody was so busy fangasming over his coverage that they forgot that scrafty can be set-up on simultaneously by conkeldurr. Anyway, one thing I don't like about Scrafty is how he needs atleast a couple of turns to become threatening. And while his special defense is incredible, I find him vulnerable to trick and uber powerful moves like draco meteor. I never have problems with it maybe because most players I have encountered send it very early on.
