Charizard's base stats are low. The only good stat he has is special attack, but that is only 109. He is extremely vulnerable to rock type moves so if you're in a competitive battle he will get destroyed by stealth rock. The only reason he is good is because of his mega evolutions.

While Charizards base stats are low compared to some of the newer generation pokemon and legendaries, for a normal pokemon and a gen 1 pokemon is it relatively powerful. Both of it's mega evolutions, (which is a nice advantage having 2) are in the ou tier meaning that they are in about 50% of ou teams, which is the "competitive" tier.

Now while it is not the strongest pokemon in the game, it is still an above average pokemon. Mega Y has a sp. attack of 159 and is a good special attacker, provided you can remove the early game hazards. Mega x has the fire dragon combo meaning the rocks only provide 25% damage rather than 50% and has a lot of options as both the physical and special attack have a base stat of 130 meaning that you can use it as a physical or special sweeper. Lastly it's ability is tough claws meaning that all contact attacks do 1/3 extra damage making it a dangerous attacker.

If I had to rank it I would not put it number one, but he is still not a joke in the competitive field, and he certainly cannot be qualified as bad.

Guys, Charizard has great stats. Especially attack and special attack which is what it's known to be good at. So what are you talking about?!

Something I like to point out is that Mega Charizard X's special defense isn't really that great, and the same can go for Y's physical defense.

"The only good stat HE has is special attack"

How dare you assume a pokemon's gender?
