Why isnt stealth Rock banned yet?

Articuno, Charizard, and Moltres were all bad before Stealth Rock existed.

Ho-oh and Volcarona manage to be Uber and OU even with Stealth Rock because they have good stats.

Because Magic Bounce, and Rapid Spin.

Also is this a Charizard thread in disguise?


why is charizard the target for stealth rocks these days?
Articuno and smugarona are 4x weak to rocks too.


Because no one can shut up about Charizard, Articuno is a defensive Pokemon without any good resistances and fairly common weaknesses, and Volcarona is OU because it's actually good even with the Rock weakness.

Also Volcarona is amazing in spite of Stealth Rock. Not even Rocks can keep Volcarona out of OU, not even Rocks.

I would be opposed to this because I feel we have enough entry hazards.

EDIT: No one can shut up about how bad Charizard is.

We get it, he has bad stats and a 4x Weakness to Rock.

Now stop prancing around about it like your entire life worth depends on whether or not people like Charizard.

All entry hazards and weather moves/pokemon with weather-causing abilities should be banned.
