Sounds like Gary

Is good at battling, is cool, and is definitely popular.

But is he a douche?

Hahaha No. He's awful, overrated, 4x weak to ice. His mega makes him slower. Your argument is invalid.

I hate it because it can apparently fly but can't learn fly.

I think it's design is suspect but I got used to it, it is very good tho obviously.. I like using the mega sometimes with sand up it becomes a monster. I like it because it's so versatile with a rough skin jolly max speed and attack build you can switch moves around and use a scarf or sweeper build, mega in sand, etc.

All that said I do like it but it isn't in my top 10 tho
F*** Beedrill.

I'd agree except the cool part. It's not what I'd call "cool".

Honestly, most of the hate stems from the simplicity of Garchomp when using it and fanboys who overcomplicate it to sound less scrubby by using scarfchomp which is it's easiest build.

To say that Garchomp is a bad Pokémon is just a flat out lie. There's a reason why it's one of the most used Pokémon ever since it came out. It has a great dual STAB typing, great base speed and it has great utility along with being a good sweeper. There's a reason why it is always OU-Ubers.

The x4 weakness to ice thing isn't much of a big deal considering that most people don't complain about that with other Pokémon and call them awful like Scizor, Ferrothorn, Quagsire, Bisharp, Breloom, etc. So it's really just personal bias that makes people hate it.

It's mega is kinda bad though unless it's a Sandstorm team and people seem to be confusing overrated with overused, yet again. Classic GameFAQs.

I'm not a fan of Garchomp but I find that most of the excuses people find to hate Garchomp can be translated into other Pokémon that are less simple to use. Just admit it already, you hate Garchomp because it's a simple straightforward Pokémon who seems to wreck you everytime you fight it.
