Rate my Salamence but I just need one more attack which I can't think of.

Level:100
Elemence/Salamence@Leftovers
EV:252Sp.Att 252Hp 6Spd(I did Sp.Att because most of my moves are Sp.Att)
Nature:Relaxed
Dragon Claw
Flamethrower
Rock Slide
Hydro Pump/Aerial Ace/HP Ice/Iron Tail/Brick Break

For the last move I am still thinking,any suggestions?

You don't need Dragon Claw, it only SEs Dragon Types. Go for Earthquake.

You'll want a lot more Speed and a lot less HP. Reverse the two IMO. Use the EV Down Berries.

For the last move, hydro Pump doesn't do much Flamethrower won't. Aerial Ace if you want STAB or Brick Break if you morbidly fear Blissey(or any other Normal Type you'll find InGame). It's your choice.

Relaxed is also a horrible Nature for Salamence, but I dunno if you'll want to rebreed.

I only pick dragon claw because of the STAB.

Adamant Nature @ Leftovers or Focus Band
Aerial Ace
Earthquake
Dragon Dance
Hidden Power(Dragon)/Rock Slide

Dragon Dance boostes Attack, so all of your moves have to be atk. Focus band is to keep from getting KOed by ice types.

lol Focus Band sucks. Go Leftovers.

You don't need all physical attacks, you can always tech a Fire Blast for Skarm. ;373;

If you're going to use Dragon Dance, it's recommended. And Focus Band was a suggestion, not a fact.

Here's what I'd suggest:

Salamence, Adamant, Leftovers/Leichi Berry
Fly
Rock Slide
Earthquake
Dragon Dance

EVs: 252Atk, the rest in Hp/Sp.def

Leftovers>Liechi
AA>Fly on set above

I personally find the CB set to be the best

Salamence@Choice Band
Adamant Nature
252 Atk/252 Speed/6 HP
Aerial Ace
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Flamethrower/filler for in-game

Never said he wasn't, though -_- It's probably R/S/E anyway, because that's where you get Salamence naturally. Not that you can't trade it to FR/LG, but why would you?


I only pick dragon claw because of the STAB

If all Pokémon took advantage of STAB, we'd be overrun by Faint Attack/Powder Snow Sneasels and Ice Beam Piloswines. Salamence has an impressive Sp. Attack, but its Attack is much better. It's like abandoning a dollar bill for a quarter ¬_¬ Dragon Attacks only SE other Dragons, and it's not like you won't be doing just as much or more damage with EQ/Rock Slide/whatever. Aerial Ace is a STAB attack for Salamence anyway =/

Fly is okay ingame, I guess, but not to be used in BT/BF, link battles, etc. Even with max Sp. Def, it's probably not gonna survive an Ice Beam from anything with a decent Sp. Atk. (Maybe Sneasel, but not much else)

Is there a point in re-breeding my salamence?

Its better for you

So if I re-breed to a adamant nature(lvl 5)then I would have to use exp share an enter the lavender mansion to get its special attack maxed up?

still loling at the HP Dragon suggestion

and if you have adamant, why would you want to raise it's special attack?

OgLoc187
4th February 2006, 6:13 PM
Because my Salamence is gonna have more Special attacks like dragon claw,Flamethrower and the others.But should I Train a Lvl 5 bagon with 252 sp.att 252 spd and 6 hp?

Freakshow
4th February 2006, 6:16 PM
More like physical not special
and more like 252 attack, not SA. You won't be doing much with Sp.atk unless you are elemence

OgLoc187
4th February 2006, 6:25 PM
Yes I am using a Elemence.Or should I do : sp.att 252 att 252 and 6 spd?
