    Question Garchomp vs Tyranitar vs Metagross for competitive?

    These are the three that i'm looking at. I considered Dragonite and Salamence but Garchomp outclasses them so yeah.

    Here are the movesets:



    Metagross @ Life Orb

    Nature: Admadant
    Ability: Clear Body

    - Meteor Mash
    - Bullet Punch
    - Earthquake
    - Zen Headbutt



    Tyranitar @ Life Orb

    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Sand Stream

    - Stone Edge
    - Earthquake
    - Crunch
    - Dragon Dance



    Garchomp @

    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Sand Veil

    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge
    - Dragon Claw

    They're all great movesets but I'd personally choose Metagross.
    I'd choose Metagross simply because Clear Body could be useful in battles and your moveset is relatively balanced in terms of covering it's weakness.

    If you do choose Tyranitar though, I'd maybe replace Stone Edge with Thunderbolt simply so you cover it's weakness to Water. Of course this is only a suggestion.

    I'd avoid Garchomp at all costs aswell. Mainly because people tend to favour Garchomp and by now people will have worked out a strategy to take it out easily.

    These are just my personal opinions though.
    Um. Nobody puts special attacks on Tyranitar. Its a waste of it's stregnths. Maybe ThunderPunch but definitely not thunderbolt.

    i recommend ScarfTar. For some reason, nobody sees it coming when you OHKO their Starmies, Gengars and Lati@s, among others.

    Some people will use specials. Yes, Thunderpunch probably is a better choice but I'd personally have chosen Thunderbolt, that's just me though.
