I dunno. Platinum offered a few things that help it matched down a bit faster, but that's the problem: it's almost... the perfect sweeper. And by perfect, I mean there's little flaws to it. Back when I played OU a lot (or should I say Pokemon in general) a lot of teams had Garchomp as the backbone, which would explain breaking over 50%. One thing was it is a king of stall-breaking, only Toxic Spikes being it's true bane. I'm not worried about the shittiness that is "ChainChomp" because as discussed infinite times it is nothing more but a freaking gimmick.
Another thing that helps a lot with Garchomp being allowed or not is the additions to OU. One thing that really struck with my head though was before DX-S's banning, it almost seemed like the perfect check to Garchomp: faster than Scarf variant and Ice Beam was usually powerful enough to take it down in one shot. But now we have Pokemon like the Latis and sure they can't "counter" him, but who can be reliably countered nowadays? Lucario's slipping of Ice Punch makes Gliscor think 20 times before switching into him, Gengar being the powerful mixed bag makes Blissey ponder if Explosion is going to nuke her, etc.
Perhaps the one major thing that intimidated most players as well as myself was simply Sand Veil, which is heightened by Tyranitar's usefullness in the OU metagame. Obviously there is no real solution to this, but it's something I think is difficult to avoid. Then again people would always throw a random question like "What if Wobbuffet had Arena Trap instead of Shadow Tag?", and I only wish that there was a second ability. Ah well.
I know there will be some that disagree, but I at least believe Garchomp coming into OU is a possibility.
