Every single Scizor carries a Bug move to hit Slowbro, but not every Genesect has a Bug move to hit Tyranitar (and even if they did, they would need the right boost in order to KO him). Rock Polish Genesect doesn't carry U-Turn and usually doesn't carry Bug Buzz either. It's more like saying Heatran is a counter to Venusaur even though Venusaur can carry Earthquake. Obviously they're not the same because Venusaur almost literally can't touch Heatran otherwise, whereas Genesect still does decent damage to it, but Tyranitar is still a good counter to Rock Polish Genesect. I never said he was a good check to Scarf, though he is if Genesect is locked into a coverage move, but that's beside the point.
So what's the point of even mentioning a Pokemon if it's only effective against one of Genesect's 3 main sets? U-Turn is a common move on both ScarfSect and the Expert Belt set. Tyranitar isn't a reliable check to Genesect unless if you're 100% sure that you're going against a Rock Polish set. That's a shaky check at best in my book.
Also Heatran is considered a check because a very small percentage of Venusaurs actually carry Earthquake. Like I said earlier U-Turn is practically Genesect's bread and butter move on a majority of its non-RP sets.
