Mega Charizard X is a Mega Evolution of Charizard that evolves via the use of a Mega Stone, officially unveiled during the airing of Pokémon Origins in Japan, revealed to be exclusive to Pokémon X. It is a Fire/Dragon-Type.
Mega Charizard X uses the Tough Claws Ability, an Ability that increases the Attack power of moves that require physical contact against the opposing Pokémon.
Mega Charizard X resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling, where it is one of the most threatening Pokémon in the tier. It is capable of running a Dragon Dance set, which along with Tough Claws, gives Mega Charizard X the ability to knock out many threats with a strong Flare Blitz. Mega Charizard X is also capable of running many other different sets, with a bulky Will-O-Wisp set that can cripple some of Mega Charizard X's biggest checks such as Azumarill and Landorus-T and a Swords Dance set with Tailwind that gives it immense wallbreaking potential while putting the heat on defensive and offensive teams. Its typing gives it great STAB coverage to go along with the ability to switch into multiple threats like Mega Scizor and Mega Manectric. The only glaring flaws in Mega Charizard X are that its base 100 Speed unboosted leaves it outsped by threats like Latios and its weakness to Stealth Rock which can be magnified if not Mega evolved. Despite this, it is a phenomenal threat that is among the best Pokémon in the tier.
