Solar Power Item: Leftovers (to make up for the loss in HP with Solar Power Fire Blast Solar Beam Dragon Pulse Focus Blast.
Why would you use dragon pulse? It only hits one type for SE damage, why not HP Ground or Rock for Electric coverage
Fire, Dragon, and Fighting type moves have perfect coverage. That's why. Also, its a sun team, so effective ways to deal with dragons are limited. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
Why doesn't anyone just lead with one. Solar power with flamethrower, solar beam, sunny day, dragon pulse holding a leftovers has good coverage and just switch in a spinner if/when he goes down.
Eh, even though he's bulkier than the other starters, its not by that much, and while its not awful, his typing doesn't do him any favors unless its Parasect or Leavanny.
But you are right that it has near perfect coverage (except Heatran). I'm surprised more people don't mention the fact that Fire/Dragon has that perfect coverage unless Reshiram is involved. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

You should try a physical set with Jolly and Acrobatics/Flame Charge/ Swords Dance/Earthquake with Flying Gem I've caught a lot of people off guard with it and it's a good late game sweeper. His attack is kind of bad but it actually hits really hard max/max Politoed gets OHKO'd at +2. In the sun Flame Charge has the same power as Fire Punch.
