I was thinking about this, and I realized that Charizard has a pretty good movepool for a tank, having roost and perfect coverage (aside from Heatran) with Flamethrower/Fire Blast and Dragon Pulse.

On top of that, while not being particularly tough, it has okay bulk. 78/78/85 isn't awful if you invest in it.

I doubt it would be great in OU, but I think it could work in NU, RU, or maybe even UU

It's hard to be bulky when it loses half its health with one switch in.

If you REALLY wanted to you could set up a wish, switch in Charizard, and he'd get back the health Stealth Rock took. >_>

Sure, but then it will inevitably get phazed out.

Roost.


And while it Roosts, it gets set up on or straight up attacked and loses a ton of HP thanks to having medicore defenses, so it'll just end up being a relative sitting duck until it dies.

Roost.


So basically a free turn for your opponent to set up every time you switch in? That sure seems great!

Charizard wouldn't be good as a bulky Pokemon. There are better options for the lower tiers.

A bulky Charizard would not work well AT ALL. And thats just an understatement.

Is that only because of Stealth Rock or would he not work even if that move didn't exist? I have a bulky Scyther with Eviolite who's also 4x weak to SR and he seems really good in games where SR isn't used.
