ive heard that flamethrower is better because of its accuracy. could fire blast still be better to use than flamethrower
and what natures?

Flamethrower vs Fire Blast on Salamence/other physical sweepers is really up to personal preference. You'll really only use it against pokemon like Skarmory, so you can afford to have it miss every so often...but some people don't like taking that risk..

Salamence - Adamant
Dusclops - Careful

It comes in handy when you have to deal with the early tanks like scizor and forretress. Skarmory isn't used properly enough to be dangerous, I don't think. (That and you could always just switch to Starmie...)

I prefer Fire Blast - I'd take the miss rather than doing a 2HKO - same results either way, just a chance that you can get the OHKO with Fire Blast (especially with adamant, zero Sp. Atk EVs... and probably a low IV as well. Har.)

On Salamence, you might prefer the Lum Berry over the Choice Band, if you don't like the restriction of a choice band (especially in the Arena, not much so in the Pyramid.)

If you're using a Lum Berry, you may as well use DDMence.

In which case, CBmence outclasses it in every way. And I love how people get so anal about CBmence and just screaming all over that "it can't be used for Arena" and such. Please, do you think we are that dumb???

It can be used for the Arena. The Arena is no different from the Tower. It's even better than the Palace.

The only problem is that you can't switch out. Thus, if the next foes resists the move you have selected, CBmence goes down easily.

You gotta realise that some people who leave one-liners here don't even know what they're talking about.

Anyway, just keep battling in the BF and gain a lot of points, then buy that Choice Band. Maybe a Lum Berry on Mence first, till you can buy Choice Band.
