Remember the two common spinners, Drilbur and Staryu, share a weakness with Chinchou, and that Natu is OHKOed most of the time by the most common hazard setter, Dwebble. It thus takes very good prediction skills to prevent any hazards from being set up.
Uhm what? Please don't misquote me, I said

And I agree with em on virtually all points. Chinchou is a solid counter to Murkrow and that fact simply cannot be refuted, as demonstrated multiple times in this thread. With proper team support, you WILL have some method of clearing hazards and Chinchou WILL stick around long enough to handle Murkrow with smart playing. Furthermore, Chinchou isn't the only counter out there, and it certainly isn't so niche that if you use Chinchou you are greatly opening yourself up to other threats.
