Charizards tier is nu.

Idk why it is very stupid of smogon.
It's NU for a reason.
Special Attack & Attack @ Charizardinite X

-Flamethrower
-Blast Burn
-Fly
-Dragon Claw
My move set would be

Flamethrower

solar beam

fly

earthquake
My moveset would be

Item: Charzardite Y

Ability: Drought

Solar Beam: Deals with rock and water types, and only takes 1 turn to charge up, because of drought

Flamethrower: High power move, STAB, and drought increases power by 50%. Also cannot miss

Roost: Increases HP, and taking away flying type is useful in many situations

Air Slash: Probably the least important move, it's pretty good though, and has STAB. It can be replaced by dragon pulse, or whatever you see fit
UPDATE: After playing OU for a while I found an even better Mega Charizard Y moveset.

Charizard-Mega-Y @ Charizardite Y  
Ability: Drought  
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Modest Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk

Beast here. I use it on Pokémon Showdown and is hard to beat.
Item: Charizardite Y
Flamethrower- Strong move, stab, and drought boosted when you mega evolve
Flame Burst- see above, also good in double battles
Slash- High crit rate for good physical damage
Fly- Stab, dodges an attack, and a little OP
Ability: Blaze, drought in mega
EV: doesn’t matter, I’ve used it throughout so many Kalos games, I couldn’t tell you
