Its IVs are 30 for attack, something like 22 for speed, others that don't really count... so yeah.. Adamant nature BTW...

I'm giving it 252 attack EV (404) and 110 in Sp.Def (196-197) and 148 in speed (264-265) Its movesets are:

Salamence (currently): Aerial Ace, Dragon Breath, Dragon Dance, Headbutt (don't tell me it sucks, cuz I know, its still in training, lvl53)

I want either:
DD,EQ,RS,AA
DD,BB,RS,AA
DD,EQ,FT,AA
DD,BB,FT,AA

of course, FT could also be Fire Blast

Key: DD= Dragon Dance, EQ= Earthquake, RS= Rock Slide, AA=Aerial Ace, BB= Flamethrower

^<==If you don't know this, please leave...

I don't know if I should use Brick Break or Earthquake, because they both effect the same things the same (other than Electric, but what electric pokemon can survive a DDx2 Brick Break?)

Thanks.

I'd go either DD, EQ, RS, AA or DD, FT/FB, EQ, AA. If EQ and Brick Break pretty much effect the same things, you'd want the stronger one right? Plus it's super effective against a couple more things than BB (poison, electric and fire). Although BB is super effective against ice, which is Salamence's worst enemy...Although so is Rock Slide, but then again that has a 10% chance of missing......
Meh. Just go with whatever you want. It's your Salamence.

You might want to take some EVs out of Sp. Def and put them into HP, but that's entirely up to you.

Uh, sorry I don't like to use/understand too many abbreviations...
Here is my suggestion:

Salamence, Adamant, Lum Berry
Aerial Ace
Rock Slide
Earthquake
Dragon Dance

EV's: max out ATK, split the rest between defense/Sp. defense

Just use Dragon Dance, after that then you wouldn't really need those extra speed EV's, plus you'd (hopefully) have enough defenses to take a couple hits prior to sweeping. The Lum Berry could be replaced by leftovers, but I like the berry better becuase it could limit cutting salmence's sweeping ability, such as burn or paralyzation, both which halve stats that are vital to a salamence that sweeps. Rock Slide is for those Ice types, plus a 30% chance of flinching.


Hope I helped!

the speed evs are so that you outspeed nearly everything, bar ninjask/electrode/deoxys-e

it will have 404 attack at lvl 100, 196 sp. defense and 264/265 Speed at lvl 100. Sala doesn't need any defense EVs the only thing that can hurt it is a STABbed Rock move (Rhydon etc.). Ok, so I'll use Aerial Ace, Earthquake, Rock Slide and Dragon Dance@Lum Berry. I don't like EVs in HP, can't be bothered.

I don't wanna use it as a CBer. one DD is enough to top a CB Salamence. Its faster, same attack, but speed is everything so no thanks. Plus DD is an Egg move so I won't delete it. Also about HP flying, how about... no? Why the f*ck should I breed 200 Eggs to get a Salamence with HP Flying with a base power of 30?

Thanks Omastar and PB88, I decided on a moveset now. Eontios, Salamence needs speed so I gave it to him. :)
