So if Grass is such a bad type, why is Celebi OU and Mew UU?

Same stats, both have decent abilities, both are Psychic, Mew has a much bigger move pool.

So if Bug is such a bad type why do people use Scizor/Fortress?

If ice is such a bad type why do people use Mamoswine/Avalugg?

just one or two pokemon out of the whole pool of the type does not make a type good...

Celebi is OU in spite of it's terrible typing, not because of it.

Also pure Psychic is hardly a good typing either.

Natural cure, though I prefer Synchronize.

What horrible logic.

Yes, let's judge a pokemon just by one aspect.

Hey, if swift swim is such a great ability, why isn't Luvdisc OU???

Ridiculous.

Rock is a terrible type but Tyranitar and Terrakion are still good.

They're the exception, not the rule. Look at the plethora of terrible Rock types besides these two. There are A LOT.

I'm pretty sure that typing is at least good. So what, seven weaknesses. It has a load of resistances and some nice immunities this gen.

Mew can function effectively in any tier, even Ubers, but its held down by the fact that it is the jack of all trades, and that it can be countered as soon as you learn its move set.

Because Grass is actually a good defensive typing.

Wthout the Grass typing there's almost nothing Celebi can do that's better than what Mew can pull off.
