Stealth Rocks aren't trapping Charizard in the lowest tiers. Meh/average stats, lack of SpA-boosting move, shallow/predictable movepool, etc. keep it in lower tiers. SR hurt, but that's just one of many factors.
Also please don't go on about Fire/Dragon fixing it all.
It wouldn't fix it all, but fire/dragon coverage is pretty nice... add in roost and he might just make it into UU :D
1. It already has Roost. 2. This just reduces Rock weakness, barely mitigates Water weakness (Rain), leaves it vulnerable to every entry hazard in the game, weak to Dragon and Ground (easily two of the most common attacking types), removes its resistance to Fighting (yet another very common attacking type), and it's now the type that Game Freak specifically said they want to nerf.
I know it has roost. I'm saying a add it to most of his sets, since he'd still lose 1/2 his health on the initial spawn if SR is up.
Charizard wouldn't be OU even if stealth rock was banned. Deny.
But I'd like it if the move was nerfed. It honestly does hinder a handful of Pokemon, such as Rotom-H and volcorona. The latter is simply so amazing that it's worth the rapid spin slot and gets used anyway.
Edit: It goes without saying that is something like ice SR existed, we'd have a completely different metagame. Celebi wouldn't be usable anymore. --- Brawl FC - 1332 8069 6690 http://i.imgur.com/OZ9aS.png
