So I've been thinking of making a Scarfmence. My next team is featuring a Salamence for sure, but I'm undecided on which variant; straight up MixMence or ScarfMence. I tried the old-fashioned DDMence at the start of the gen and it really didn't work out that well.
Anyway, I have a typical MixMence ready to go anytime (Moxie AND Intimidate variants, Naive w/ DClaw, FBlast, EQ and Meteor), but if I'm to go for Scarf Salamence I'm not entirely sure how I would build it.
I was thinking something like maybe Lonely/Naughty with the same moveset as the MixMence?
So, something like
Salamence@Choice Scarf Lonely or Naughty Nature Ability: Moxie EVs: 164 Atk/252 Spe/94 SpA ~Dragon Claw (or Outrage if I can grab a genned one) ~Earthquake ~Draco Meteor ~Fire Blast
Something like this? --- http://backloggery.com/RavenTheObsidian 3DS FC: 3866-8144-2758 Pokemon Y IGN: Raven // PSN: RavenTheObsidian
Salamence is just a worse Dragonite, lol. Just use the original superior Gen 1 Dragon instead. --- Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.
That's a good set for it; the ability to run a mixed set is the one thing it has over Dragonite (aside from Salamence having a better design in my opinion). --- 3DS FC: 4055-4020-3612 Anyone who wants to add me for Friend Safari is welcome to!
The main inspiration for me wanting to use Scarf Salamence is the snowball effect it gets with Moxie. I'm trying out Scarfmence for now, but if it doesn't work out as well I'll probably switch to MixMence and possibly bring in my beloved Scarf Chandelure.
Thanks for the input! --- http://backloggery.com/RavenTheObsidian 3DS FC: 3866-8144-2758 Pokemon Y IGN: Raven // PSN: RavenTheObsidian
