Attack, since it has Dragon Dance.

Special will let you hit harder straight away with more powerful moves - Fire Blast, Draco Meteor etc.
It can learn Dragon Dance though, so physical can get pretty powerful if you're able to set up.

It's better defensively really, and if you want to use it primarily for attacking, physical with Dragon Dance is more likely to pay off as base 70 attacks really need some boosts to do much damage.

Altaria gets Dragon Dance while lacking a Special Attack buff. I would suggest a physical attacker, with maybe Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Dragon Pulse or Moonblast on the side.

hmm interesting, i hear she has great defensive stats but i want her to be pure attack bc her x4 weakness to ice will destroy her. I like DD as a move what good stab moves can i give her as a physical sweeper, lets include DD as one of the moves and maybe roost but prob not.

Dragon Rush (power, low accuracy) or Dragon Claw (lower power, won't miss). Dragon Rush is an Egg Move, Claw a TM.
Earthquake (TM)
Maybe Roost to heal up after setting up, as you're likely to have taken some damage in the process.
