    plus, nite is the OG. cant touch that
    extremespeed wont kill every pokemon that can outspeed dnite(and the list is quite long) and if you get a DD then youre somewhat likely to have taken some damage since it takes one turn for dnite to use it and all your oponent needs is to take 1hp to ruin your ability

    .....u sure?cos im pretty sure ferro can live:S

    IMO mence is better as a sweeper and as wallbreaker while dnite can take better advantage of its bulk and its ability and work as a bulky attacker or as supporter or whatever
    though bulky mence is also great and it has also a great movepool for the supporter role and dnite can be very destructive with a choice band or as a mixed attacker
    so there you have it they both have their strengths but they can do whatever the other can(even if not as 100% effectively but very close to it)


    ALSO the only thing dnite has that mence doesnt is 2 awesome pre-evos<3

    Although its a tough choice, I'd have to say Salamence. It boosts higher offenses and speed.

    Tough choice,I like both of them but I would say I prefer Dragonite,because it's my favorite and make's for a fierce OU tier poke'mon.However Salamance has higher attack and speed but less bulk,it's really a tough choice competitively speaking otherwise my choice is Dragonite.

    I'll say Salamence. It's a better sweeper with it's higher speed and special attack, and not to mention it has a better design. I think Salamence is particularly good at running mix attack sets. If it's just one on one though, a bulky Dragonite would win for sure. On the first turn Salamence uses Outrage or Draco Meteor, Dragonite uses Dragon Dance. Second turn Dragonite uses Outrage and 1 hit KO's Salamence. Multiscale is just that good (especially with roost). However, if it's an offensive Dragonite thats running Adamant/Jolly with EV's in attack and speed, Salamence would 1 hit KO Dragonite with Outrage if Mence has a choice band or life orb (so long as D-nite doesn't strike first with choice scarf). Based on my calaculations anyway. I guess it depends on what role you value more, a bulky PKMN, or a sweeper.

    I'd have to go with Dragonite, multiscale or not Dragonite has better defences and a higher move pool, that and if dragonite were to go head-to-head against Salamence... Ice punch.

    I never really seem to have a problem with either, mostly because half of my team knows Ice Punch, and another guy knows Ice Beam. Between the two, though, I think Multiscale Dragonite is my preference.
