Yeah... Charizard's not getting past most of this without a Scarf. And being Choice locked forces Charizard to switch more, and hits from Stealth Rock kills it. --- The official rad dude of the Pokemon X board.
Like others have said, stats are weighted towards higher ranked players. That way there is no BS like Magikarp making OU cause someone wants to jokingly use it a lot. --- Not changing this sig until The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho happens on PPV (started October 4, 2009)
charizard is actually used a decent amount in ou and ubers cuz of the fanboys. but it isn't used in uu and ru cuz it sucks so it gets put in nu. someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i think that's how smogon does it. --- http://i.minus.com/iblIlT6HgFdYeW.gif
Isn't the weighting adjusted so that teams that lose are weighted less than teams that win? Considering that the overlap between (people who like Charizard enough to use it on a competitive team) and (people who can win with a Charizard on their team) is very small (and according to a replay I got linked to in a thread here, apparently DOES include iKhanic), Charizard ends up where he is usable.
If Stealth Rock was gone, Moltres would make UU (if not OU; Volcarona is a sure Uber) and Charizard would go to the tier below Moltres. --- nuskooI posted... You nooblet mainstreamers and your reverse nostalgia.
