Uh, yes. Forget Stealth Rock, it can just Roost/Regen off the damage. Its signature move is a reliable 100 power move with no drawbacks except 95/100 accuracy, plus it has a whopping 50% chance to burn. Ho-oh is both powerful and bulky as well. It deserves to be Uber. --- 3DS FC: - White 2 FC: 1765 0547 5604, Name: Kojo

Yes, it would.
Ho-oh is bulky as hell, AND has Roost and Regenerator.

No. Ho-Oh has ridiculously high stats.
If SR wasn't around, it would shoot up to Mewtwo level. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

ITT: Stealth Rock is now an excuse to drop everything to the lower tiers, even though it's more than proven that Pokémon can still thrive in higher tiers despite being 2x/4x weak against SR if they're good enough.
By TC's logic, Volcarona should be UU and Charizard and Articuno should have their own tier below NU. *equips Flame Shield* --- "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." -Sirius Black

Charizard is actually a very unique case. It has the stats, movepool, and ability to be BL or even possibly OU, but the problem is that it's two biggest niches (Belly Drum and Solar Power) rapidly drain it's HP, which is not a good think when its 4x weak to SR. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
