At point  Dragonite is, despite being similar, a totally different beast to Salamance. In the past, the only time you would see anyone using Dragonite, and not being ripped apart by the team raters for it, was if it was making use of a Bulky DD Set, or Roost/Superpower. Why is Dragonite not Uber? -10 less base Sp.Attack means that Dragonite can't spam off Draco Meteors to deal 50% to anything that isn't a Steel, and deals far less damage with Fire Blast - 15 more base Defence comes nowhere near Intimidate, especially when combined with the LOWER Base HP - Inner Focus is only useful against Jirachi - 20 less Base Speed. Base 80 is slow in OU. This makes it FAR easier to stop DD Nite than DD Mance. In fact, combined with lack of Intimidate, and DM being less of a threat, it's also far harder to set up as well. Dragonite has it's niches, but unlike Salamance, who could come in on more or less any physical attacker, and either nuke the other team [DM, or Choice Band Mance], set up, or... hit hard without being a nuke, but continue to stay in. Dragonite has to think twice. It can't come in as easily on physical attackers, and, while it can come in on Special Attackers better, it has to watch out for Ice Beam. Compare Nite to Mance, in terms of sheer power, and ability to just come in whenever you want, and Mance wins by a mile. Point  is a flawed argument. Going to Ubers is not linked to useage in Ubers, but brokeness in OU. Therefor, that point is moot. Point 3 is also flawed. How are you using Garchomp to say that the support characteristic is flawed, and Mance should come back? Garchomp was banned under the Offensive Characteristic. Chomp didn't come in, and wipe 50% or more HP off something with almost 100% assurance, before hopping back out. Salamance was banned under Support mainly, but also under Offense to some degree. No other pokemon in OU can come in with the impunity Mance did, and blow a hole in the other team, regardless of what they do. Also, when a pokemon's counter is listed as 'Residual Damage/Revenge killing by Scizor' and that's the best argument people can come up with for not being Uber, that kinda says 'Time to pack your bags and move to the banlist'.
