True. Staraptor’s a strong pokémon & I’ve never used one in my playthroughs, but the problem is that everyone’s most likely going to use one (along with Infernape, Luxray, Lucario, & Garchomp) so it doesn’t make teams feel more unique.Yeah, I can really understand that. I've personally edited a W2-run because I really wanted to use a Bouffalant for the majority of the game, instead catching it way too near to the ending.
I feel as if Chatot is also one of those pokémon (also looking at you Gen2 Skarmory and Dark-types not named Umbreon). Sure, it's quite frail and has almost unusable Abilities (Tangled Feet is the best one it gets), but it's SpA and Speed are usable and STAB Chatter and Boomburst is an amazing move combination (you need to breed with a Noivern for Boomburst though, which you can't do if you're getting one from PoGo (since Chatot isn't legal to SwSh and Noivern probably isn't allowed in Sinnoh)).
I can definitely see myself using it if I wanted a Flying-type and if the game didn't almost force Staraptor on you. I mean stats, movepool, abilities, accesability, design. The Muku.HAWK is hard to pass up. Unless you've used it a bazillion times and want a change.
I’m just hoping that Chatot will get some kind of boost in the remakes such as tweaked stats or more move coverage through TMs & TRs. If I can’t use it, I may end up using Kricketune instead since I want my team to have the theme of connection and including a sound-based Pokémon references how music can connect people
