Base 130 Attack, Fantastic Moveset & Superluck. (If I recall correctly, it also has Base 75 Speed which isn't too bad)
Absol is one of the more deadly Pokemon in any of the games and just tears through everything with relative ease.
Not too sure why it is rare, but it shouldn't have ever been too hard to catch as it has the same rate of capture as Dialga & Palkia, who are notoriously easy to capture. (3.9% Chance of Capture at Full Health with a Pokeball which shoots up to the late 80's when at low health with an Ultra Ball..
Wow.. I really know way to much about the little details..
