Gen 1: Articuno's 90% accuracy Blizzard off of 125 special was actually amazing. Especially without steel types. It has been shafted so hard since :(
But anyway, the people who said Articuno doesn't have as vocal a fanbase are correct. Also, it's as far removed from its glory days as possible, people really can't try to defend ice/flying typing for a defensive pokemon, and there's no real way to make it truly threatening anymore. Zard can at least give people a semblance of hope that it will be a threat with solar power sun boosted specs fire blasts that go "womg hits harder than Reshiram!"
You can't call him out for being wrong when he never intended to be right - Stephen Colbert "Bad Mojo" is not a diagnosis - Dr. Foreman, House, M.D.

But regardless to that you can use anything competitively you just have to utilize a team to cover your flaws. I am happy to say my Alomomola, and Tropius dou are doing quite nicely in UU.
