Why is Charizard NU (usage question)?

#1iKhanicPosted 6/25/2013 10:33:05 PM
No, this isn't some fanboy topic. It's a legitimate question. If tiers are based on usage, why don't the massive numbers of Charizard using fans place it at least in RU, and probably UU. I mean, I'd say I see Charizards in OU as much as I do Chandelures.

REMEMBER, THIS ISN'T ABOUT THE REASON CHARIZARD ISN'T GREAT IN OU, THIS IS ABOUT USAGE STATISTICS

I think this is a case of the admins having pity on it, and allowing it in a place where it can possibly shine.

Because serious smogon users don't use something so crippled by Stealth Rock.

Even if they did, Moltres does it better which is why it is in RU and Charizard is in NU.

Because Charizard sucks.

Tier placement doesn't always equate to how good a Pokemon is, but this is one of those times where that's exactly what's going on.

I read it seven times, thank you very much.

Charizard sucks so much that even its fans don't want to use it in actual battling.

You play on showdown don't you? Don't you see lots of Charizards in random battles? Granted most of it's users aren't very good, but it should still affect tier ranking right?

Maybe the massive numbers of Charizard fanboys are greatly exaggerated. -_-

I don't see any Charizard past 1500 in any tier.
