We're talking about anti-lead right ? So yeah, Tar anti-lead always wear a sash, your battles doesnt matter and refering some arguments to the ladder is p.bad since there is very few people who play seriously on it (charizard, props to you).
Pokemon faster than him who can take 2 hit arent a true lead anymore so Tar did his job (and there is really no lead able to do that beside Groudon who invest like a crazy in speed). Also, there is really a few mons able to do that. Tar was in DP, and still in BW, the best anti-lead you can have. Anyway, that was off topic.
