Dragalge has gotten pretty popular lately...

#1Sebas27Posted 4/21/2014 6:16:31 PM
So I've decided to raise one for the time being(until Adaptability is released).

Good moveset, EVs, and hold item? I have a Modest one

Adaptability is the only reason it will ever be worth using.

Talk about a waste of great typing and design.

Even with adaptability, I don't see it being too good. Slow, common weaknesses, and only 97 special attack.

Say that to my vgc dragalge

Toxic stalling with acid armor boosts is fun. Sadly since my vgc run of my team it's gotten haxed 8/10 times which made me wondering if it's a bad luck magnet

Oh god that speed.

I guess it might be good in Trick Room when Adaptability gets released (unless trollfreak pull a chandelure on us)

I see I've been summoned!

I honestly am not a great competitive battler, I just love Dragalge! But just to be semi-helpful and contribute, my Modest Dragalge has EVs maxxed out in HP and Special Attack with the remaining in either Def or Sp. Def (I forget which). There's no point in investing in Speed since its already so slow, so you might as well try to dish out as much as you can while its alive! That means you should use damage amplifying items like Choice Specs or Life Orb/Expert Belt. It learns a bunch of powerful special moves such as Sludge Wave, Thunderbolt, Dragon Pulse, and Focus Blast that all have a lot of coverage.

I also have a Quiet nature one that I just bred to use in Trick Room teams, but since its so slow, I'm sure your Modest one will work just fine as well.

You can even go defensive with a Bold nature and use moves like Dragon Tail and Toxic Spikes/Toxic to make use of its bulkiness.

Hope you grow to love Dragalge as much as MM and I do! Unfortunately I don't think its getting very popular... I just make a lot of threads about it lol.

Maybe you just need to git gud.

Also, its a shame that the Ability Capsule doesn't allow you to change normal abilities to hidden abilities. We'll just have to wait until it comes out to breed for it!
