Face it, iKhanic. Volcarona is suffering more than Charizard.
SR is literally the only thing that keeps him in OU.


SR the only thing keeping Zard out of UU.


Also Volcarona can handle switching into SR. It's bulkier and doesn't lose an 8th of HP per turn, so it can afford to run roost. I agree it would be Ubers without SR, but it can still handle SR better than Zard can.


Victini, better sun sweeper than Charizard. UU
Darmanitan, better sun sweeper than Charizard, UU
Liligant, better sun sweeper than Charizard, RU I think
Sawsbuck, better sunsweeper than Charizard, NU
Leafeon, Shiftry, Exeggutor or however you spell it, all NU. all better sun sweepers than Charizard.

Oddish. little cup. better sun sweeper than charizard


The question had nothing to do with tiers anyway. The question is which Pokemon is most hindered in battle by SR. Zard does have other things affecting it negatively, but the fact of the matter is that switching into SR is worse for Zard than it is any other mon barring maybe Dragonite.

Eviolite Scyther is almost useless to run, despite pretty respectable bulk. :P

Charizard and Volcarona would both jump by a tier. From NU to RU and from OU to Ubers.

So I'd say Volcarona is more hindered.

TC is so obsessed with Rocks and Charizard these days lol.

Yay I'm starting to recognize people.

Articuno simply fails at being a wall in general thanks to that wonderful Ice/Flying dual type. Rocks were the final nail in the coffin.

You see, I think that evaluation is too simple. Jumping from tiers has to do with how good a pokemon is in general, but because of SP, Charizard is crippled by SR more than anything else.

However, it's sort of my fault for using the word hindered rather than hurt.
