Scarfed Salamence?

#1DarkHeroRavenPosted 4/19/2014 2:15:17 PM
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?

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.

If you want to use scarfed salamence play doubles. It is one of the best dragons in doubles and the best dragon/flying

Also the most common scarf user

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).

Scarf Mence lost a lot this gen. Too easily walled by any Fairy.

Can't think of anything

If you want a scarfed dragon, just go for garchomp
If you want a DD dragon, go for Zard X or Dragonite.

I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see, on the streets and on TV.

This.
And if you want a mixed Dragon...
Yeah, go Salamence.

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!
