Especially if he is paired up with Ninetales, one of his big weaknesses is Stealth rock, something that is almost worthless in anything that isn't Singles and sometimes doubles.
His flying type actually comes in handy when it allows him to avoid earthquake, plus 4X weakness to rock type moves doesn't really matter since he probably would be KO by those type of moves even without the extra weakness.
The only two pokemon that have the same typing is moltres and Ho-oh, one being an uber and the other out classing Charizard if you don't mind the lack of dragon moves.
But alas, it seems that people only play singles, which means a lot of pokemon become useless. --- Gamefaqs in a nutshell (http://error1355.com/img/gif/gamefaqscant.gif)

I agree that Singles is overrated. I do not agree that Charizard isn't still terrible. --- My NIDOKING brings all the boys to the yard: http://goo.gl/ExAoe

Triple battles never should have existed, tbh.
Rotation battles are fun though. --- I'm a jukebox hero.

Triple battles are awesome. But with Rock Slide being easy to get and it hitting multiple targets and flinching, I don't see how Charizard is of any use there either.
For Rotations it's fun to leave an Espeon active to screw with my opponent's head. No one likes the possibility of walking right into Magic Bounce. --- However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.

I like how people say a Pokemon sucks and find out that it is good for other formats. --- B**** don't make me HM01 you! ALL HAIL THE GLORIOUS HYPNOTOAD!
I find that people spam earthquake a lot more than rock slide. Or most simply use stone edge over it. --- Gamefaqs in a nutshell (http://error1355.com/img/gif/gamefaqscant.gif)

I preferred Rock Slide since it won't hit my partners. Only exception is Surf thanks to my Gastrodon, who in turn hits with high powered Blizzards. Plus there's no chance of something being immune to Rock Slide. --- However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.

Don't forget Charizard can use haze as well (affecting all opponents with no damage to team) --- I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters. - Frank Lloyd Wright

Assuming you mean Heat Wave and I don't see the point. So can almost every other fire type or flying type, and practically anything else with wings. --- However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.
