They can also run Unnerve.
No, not when you can run Compoundeyes.

I think 1/r was supposed to be 1/4.
Ah, of course. I'm usually consistent with noticin' typos...
Charizard's Flying-type give it a Fighting resistance and Ground immunity, two ideal qualities for Redreavus' team. 'Specially the latter. In turn, Charizard gains an Electric weakness, is hit even harder by Rock-type moves and loses it's Ice resistance as it becomes neutral. The Electric weakness isn't very appealing, this much is obvious. The extra weakness t' Rock however, isn't as important. A Solarbeam t' most-any Rock-type will eliminate it. A Pokemon without STAB using Rock Slide or another weaker Rock-type attack may not KO anyways. Typhlosion doesn't want t' stay in on foes which obviously can learn Rock-type moves, so I find the extra weakness t' Rock almost irrelevant. Finally, losing the Ice resist is of very little consequence. Lapras and Snorlax both take Ice-type attacks swimmingly as is. Espeon and Heracross can do the same as well if need be with their good Special Defense stats if the foe's Pokemon is slingin' around Special Ice-type attacks. The latter Poke hits back Ice-types with super-effective STAB and the former able to recover off damage when not faced with physical attackers/Froslass.
Indeed, I find the trade-off worth it.
Say what you want, I KNOW charizard is a bad option.
Was a guy, then was a girl. Now i'm pure nothingness... Proud leader of what seems to be one of the last exesting clans PHANTOM BRAWLERS!
... So is Typhlosion lol. It's a matter of which option is less shit.
And regardless of who's right, either option is of similar usefulness anyways. The difference in viability is negligible.
If Charizard and Typhlosion are bad choices for fire types, what other recommendations do you guys have in mind?
