I'm not going to permit this self-indulgent, condescending, and insulting rant which you term an "essay" which you blatantly state serves not as a discussion piece; but as lecture.
You want to make the case for Garchomp in OU? Go and do it in the Stage 3 thread where it belongs; but try to do it in a manner that doesn't come off as a "self-indulgent, condescending, and insulting rant". Also, I see you didn't qualify for the Stage 2 voting of Garchomp. If this was so important to you, why didn't you bother to even put in a little effort? Don't question the entire community if you aren't willing to put in the effort to even obtain voting rights.
Finally, I'm locking this because the community has literally gone over this countless times point by point. See,
Let alone the countless others I can't be bothered to find.
edit: and this, thanks Flashstorm1

Also, Garchomp and Salamence are two totally different Pokémon that function differently, so I don't see why you bother comparing the two. Salamence is pretty much forced to use Outrage if it wants to sweep on the physical side of the spectrum, suffers from Stealth Rock damage, etc. All Garchomp needs to do is switch in, hit something with a Choice Band Dragon Claw or Earthquake, and get out to come back in later. Swords Dance Garchomp is a potent sweeper in its own right as well, and isn't forced to rely on the mediocre Dragon Dance + Life Orb Outrage Salamence needs in order to deliver the same power Garchomp can do with just one Swords Dance.
edit 2: While you may not have broken this rule since we are technically in Stage 3, I believe the general purpose of this rule was to say don't assume you know better than the entire community, which your rant seemingly implies (your manner of presentation makes that very clear).

To think that your complaints are going to or should have any actual sway after this process is somewhat insulting to the community at large.
