Hi I need some for the nature of my Salemence back-up for my Metagross.
Gross's Adamant holding choice band and his move are:
Meteor Mash
Explosion
Psychic
Earthquake
I'm so original aren't I?
So I need a nature, and some help with moveset.
He's for countering Skarmory and EQ's and the occasional fire.
My idea for a moveset was:
Flamethrower
EQ
Ariel ace/HP flying
Dragon Dance
Item would be apreciated.
P.S. I don't have a Gamecube and can't go to events so In-emerald items please.

Rock Slide or Sludge Bomb instead of Psychic on Gross. And since you're using DDMence, go with Rock Slide over Flamethrower.

Errrr......... all I can help you on is Metagross, which I would change Psychic for either Sludge Bomb or Shadow Ball.

Then what do I do for Skarmorys?

Wow you're a complette genious! I bet all the smartness in a tin of beetroot couldn't match up to you. No I want my Salemence to be able to counter it as well. There's nothing worse than coming up against a Skarmory, and oh no Houndoom's fainted so I'll just hang on no I've got no moves against it, maybe Metagross could do nothing. I really need the moveset and item more than the moveset.

Calm down, bud. He just didn't read this part.

I was about to whip out DDmence until I saw this. Thus you have Specialmence.

Salamence @ Leftovers
Trait: Intimidate
Nature: Timid
Fire Blast
Hydro Pump
Crunch
Dragon Claw/HP Ice

If this is InGame, you could go a little more conservative on Fire Blast with Flamethrower, but Specialmence isn't that good and you need to take the risk.

I was just joking around. I was thinking about timid before lickily I've already got one (goes and does IV check) oh yes I forgot to mention it's competetive for link and battle frontier.
