When it comes to Pokémon suffering because of the physical/special split back in the Sinnoh games, there isn't a better example of how the mighty have fallen than Tauros. If you played Pokémon back in the days of Red, Blue and Yellow, you'll remember how much of a monster Tauros was. It was an incredibly powerful Pokémon that broke almost any walls it came across, just like an actual bull. Now, it just seems that they put this poor bull out to pasture.
Gone are the days it could break any wall, and now it's stuck ramming into Pokémon it would have stampeded over in the past. Not that it's changed all that much. Tauros has the same diverse movepool it had back in the first games, and it's only grown in recent years. Sheer Force has also helped Tauros maintain its status as a dangerous bull to lock horns with. Even if its glory days seem long gone, Tauros can still hold its own.
