Just give me a minute. Stealth Rock defines the metagame. Stealth Rock is the decider. Stealth Rock is basically the judge that always has their eye on every Pokemon.

Charizard was the most popular Pokemon of its prime. Charizard actually dominated in-game and the metagame. That all changed beginning with DPP. Now, Charizard is at the lowest it can be. A sure example as to how influential Stealth Rock is.

Stealth Rock despises all Pokemon weak to Rock-type attacks. That is why it must be the switch that executes their eventual downfall. The only case Stealth Rock loses its hatred of said kind of Pokemon is if it has a secondary typing that makes it neutral to the damage from It.

Stealth Rock is an element. It cannot be questioned, nor can it be contained. While Rapid Spin can be used to eliminate it, in the end, Stealth Rock will return. It always does. Even back at YOU if your opponent has on their field, a Pokemon whom possesses mystical power, making it able to bounce back its dreadful wrath.

In the end, Stealth Rock wins.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Charizard never dominated the metagame though. As far as I can remember he's always been UU at best.

Charizard isn't a good Pokemon in general, the quad weakness to Stealth Rock just compiles the awfulness of it.

Look at Volcarona. Sure, it's x4 weak to Stealth Rock, but it's a heavily used Pokemon in the metagame because it's a GREAT Pokemon.
Well, well, well... What do we have here?
