Wow, look at all'a those Pokes that learn it by HM! Good thing you can transfer Pokes from the fourth t' fifth Generation even if they know HM moves. >_____________>
...oh. I forgot about that part.
So guys, Shuckle confirmed for OU.
That I do. But Galvantula has Compound Eyes STAB Thunder. Ariados has Toxic Spikes (and nothing else lawl). Shuckle has nothing.
'Sides, 'less Sticky Web can't be Rapid Spin'd/Defog'd, all it's gonna do is take over Stealth Rock's role and possibly make Tailwind more awesome. Not that I won't be surprised t' see offensive teams run both.
The buff on Infiltrator also helps a bit with preventing it from being Substitute bait, if it doesn't Encore at the right time. Granted, not many Pokemon get Infiltrator, but still.

In other words, it's Taunt fodder. And it's bulk most certainly is nothing as the Generations roll on with power creep after power creep. It's useless in the face'a other Sticky Web users without Wish support, and even then, that's only good for keepin' it alive after a foe's spinner has been dealt with.
Rocks is still uber-common. Shuckle is awful, and Sticky Web doesn't alleviate it's shortcomings 'less ya intended to use one for your team anyways.
