Mega Charizard Y is the Mega Evolution of Charizard and that evolves via the use of a Mega Stone, officially unveiled during the Pokémon Direct on the 4th September, 2013. During the airing of Pokémon Origins in Japan, it was revealed to be exclusive to Pokémon Y.
Mega Charizard Y uses the Drought Ability, which changes the weather conditions to Strong Sunlight upon its entry into battle.
Mega Charizard Y resides in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Mega Charizard Y is among the tier's strongest wallbreakers due to its ability Drought which gives a 50% boost in its Fire Blast attacks. It can run Solar Beam to cover the Water-types that can survive one of its Fire Blast attacks and Focus Blast to take care of pesky defensive Pokémon like Heatran that would otherwise wall it. This coverage leaves only a select few Pokémon like Mega Altaria and Latios that can switch into Mega Charizard Y without having to worry about being knocked out easily. Those Pokémon that wall Mega Charizard Y can be more easily taken care of thanks to Pursuit support or stallbreakers that are capable of putting heavy pressure on those defensive Pokémon. However, there are flaws that keep Mega Charizard Y from being truly centralizing. It has a major weakness to Stealth Rock and only base 100 Speed, which allows it to be easily picked off by many faster threats. This also makes Mega Charizard Y easy to pressure, which can lead to momentum being sucked away from a team.
