 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Charizard finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. In these tiers it is a destructive Special Sweeper, but its Speed also allows it to run a physical sweeping set with Swords Dance.
Keeping Stealth Rock on your opponent's side is a great way to take Charizard out, as it loses 50% of its HP if it switches in while this entry hazard is active. Even the toughest Special Walls have trouble against Charizard whilst Solar Power is active; getting a Revenge-KO is one way to take it down. Paralysis will definitely hurt its chances at both sweeping and survival.
