Goodra Moveset: Pulse vs Meteor?

#1DalzKkPosted 10/18/2013 5:07:57 AM
Hey guys!

Have a modest Goodra with 31 iv in SpA, SpD and HP. 252 EV in SpA.

Draco Pulse vs Draco Meteor?

Which is considered better? Or is it just completely situational?

Meteor has more power initially, but you're sharply lowering your special attack each time you use it, and has slight accuracy issues. You're probably going to have to switch if you use that move, unless you're running a mixed set (and Goodra's ATK is rather ordinary to run that). Dragon Pulse is less powerful, but doesn't have any drawbacks, and can be repeatedly spammed (after you've dealt with the prerequisite Steels and Dragons).

Short story - whatever works for how you want to play, but I'd probably go with Dragon Pulse.

Meteor is more for a sweeping moveset. Goodra's a little on the slow side for sweeping, so, unless you plan on using a Choice Scarf, maybe you'd be better off using Pulse as it's more reliable.
