Don't you think 4th gen sucks? It just came out and ruined the 3rd gen!
Let's look at the facts...
The handsome Charizard (my favourite pkmn xD) was the top dog of the fire types since he gets belly drum. Then the UGGLY monkey Infernape came out and got almost the same stats but a much better attack, a bit higher speed and a diverse move pool (although much more weaknesses). Although Charizard can still stand on his own it's much more difficult since sets other than bellyzard will be compared to Infernape and the conclusions won't be good for Charizard.
If you wanted to have a normal/flying bird in your team, the beautyful Swellow would be the first choice... And then comes Staraptor which has almost the same speed and a greater attack and he gets close combat to deal with rock types.
THAT'S NOT FAIR!!!! (and these are just examples)
LONG LIVE 3rd GEN!!!!!!!
