It's just to make a Fire type variant of Giga Drain. By doing that, Charizard will be able to heal away that nasty Solar Power damage. And if it runs a specs set, you will probably be able to heal quite a bit with 4 STAB equivalent boosts.

Fire Drain doesn't sound nearly as cool though.

This. I love Charizard as much as the next guy. Nostaliga and all. However I don't let it cloud my judgement. Assuming this becomes true. Stealth rock STILL takes half. Charizard gets bumped up to RU at most and there he gets pooped on by Kabutops just as much as he does Carracosta in NU.

...and what about water types, shouldn't they be given a Giga Drain variant just to even it up considering Water/Grass/Fire are starter types.

Actually, Charizard has potential on sun teams. More than rocks, the main thing that holds it back is the Solar Power recoil. I mean, even with rocks, Volcarona's still OU.

I think Solar Power should ditch the recoil altogether. I mean, what's the point of the recoil when stuff like Chlorophyll and Swift Swim don't have it. Sand Force doesn't have recoil. Why should Solar Power be comparatively nerfed?

I think a reduction on the recoil from Solar Power, and a Fire-type Giga Drain are both good additions to Charizard's potential movelist.

That'd be neat. Now all Charizard would have to worry about is being weak to two common types, having no real boosting move to help it, a shallow movepool, meh stats...

It's the most underrated pokemon competitively. Also, great is relative. Charizard is already great in NU, and I never said anything about OU. This would probably land Charizard in UU, while getting it more appearances in OU on sun teams.
