What do you think?

Please don't tell me that this team is extremely weak against Ice, Dragon, Electric, and Rock attacks. I know that already. Just tell me if these are good movesets. Please let me know the natures I should have and if I should change any items and if I should change any moves!

Yeah, any team that uses Fly needs major work. Also, you don't have a single defensive move and that's bad.

Also, don't tell us the PP of your moves. That's useless info and we don't care.

You should have more varieties of pokemon types. You have 4 DRG/FLY which ... isn't that good. Try to make your pokemon attacks cover more weaknesses. like with a moveset like this
Thunderbolt(for water/ice pokemon)
Dragonclaw(for other dragons and STAB boost)
Earthquake(for rock pokemon)
(a move of your choice)
Then it covers all your weaknesses.
Dragonclaw is a better choice than Icebeam and Blizzard since it gains STAB boosts(x10)

With the exception of Lati@s and the FlameClaw combo, Ice Beam is always better than Dragon Claw since it covers more types. Besides, you can't OHKO other Dragons with Dragon Claw, but you can with Ice Beam.

What's your Hidden Power on Kingdra?

20th December 2006, 8:54 PM
Use Latis for another variety

What's your Hidden Power on Kingdra?
Why would you use Hidden Power in-game?
In fact, why would you use Hidden Power on Kingdra at all? It's not going to do anything, even if it's supereffective. Kingdra will do more damage to other Waters with Toxic than it will with any Hidden Power.

I actually considered using an all dragon team a long time ago. Like they said before though it's best to make sure you can cover your weaknesses in order to have much of a chance.

i guess to make it better you could make it a team with pokemon that look like dragons as well eg gyarados, aerodactyl to help your weaknesses

mono teams suck, and there is no worse mono-team than Dragon.

your main problem is that there arent enough dragon pokemon out yet, with what you have its not bad but like others say boost the elements dragons are well known for this have a drognite know surf and ice beam add either outrage or dragon claw and then add your own touch for a fourth move. you need to take full advantage of dragons that is why they are so elite and rare in the games

Dragons suck anyway, I think they're over rated, how *** the easiest elite four for me is the dragon dude, the only reli decent ones are salamence, and the latis,

dragonite is just plain annoying and useless in many situations

Ice pokemon own them meaning they get their butt kicked in battle all too often, plus the dragon moves aren't that wonderful, barring dragon claw,

the best mono team wud have to be a grass one, with
