Do they take the Physical route, because of Dragon Dance. Or Special, because of it's powerful Special moves. I'm not sure why anyone would go Physical, Kingdra lacks any good Physical moves. --- PSN= ss1006 Black 2 FC: 0777-2155-1737
Now that drizzle-swift swim is out, dragon dance is needed to fix kingdras speed. And like mentioned above, outrage and waterfall are decent enough.
On the other hand, Kingdra is a great weather counter. He x4 resists water to counter rain teams and x4 resists fire to counter sun teams. Also, there's no rule to stop you using swift swim if your oponent puts up rain. --- FFXII Perfect game Inventory at 2400+ Hours - http://youtu.be/ALZMH7lvLdE
Kingdra has Waterfall and Outrage as pretty good physical attacks. Add dragon dance with that and you have quite a deadly force imo. Another option is making it a mixed sweeper, which is pretty nice as well. I haven't really used kingdra all that much yet, still quite new to competitive play, but that's probably what I'd go for seeing its movepool. o.o --- If you could turn back time, would you change your life?
Note that drizzle swift swim is only out if you use smogon rules. If for battle subway, or for the national championship regional in January you can drizzle swift swim all you want. --- White 2 FC: 3311 2748 2671 RIP my Xbox 360: Died 1/24/12 you lived a long and good life i will miss you ( but not your flashing red light.)
