Charizard Y, HP Ice or Dragon Pulse?

...been out of the srs business battling for a while.

I hear Charizard X is been the preferred version now but screw that. I already made one anyways, so don't get too rowdy about it.

Anyways, whats the better choice between HP Ice and Dragon Pulse?
I'm leaning towards Ice because most dragons have 4x weakness to it for some reason...


side question: Charizard Solar Power + Life Orb vs Charizard Y?

Dragon Pulse is better, but you'll rarely need it; MegaZard Y's Fire Blast/Flamethrower is so ungodly powerful in the sun that it often does more damage than a coverage move would.

And to answer your second question: when using Charizard, it's usually Mega or bust.

Don't use non-mega Charizard. Non-Mega Charizard is NU material. Mega Charizard (X or Y) is OU material.

252 SpA Mega Charizard Y Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mew in Sun: 313-370 (91.7 - 108.5%) -- 50% chance to OHKO

252 SpA Life Orb Solar Power Charizard Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Mew in Sun: 464-546 (136 - 160.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Regular Charizard does more damage but is much more unreliable.

LO Solar Power 'Zard also loses an ungodly amount of HP per turn and requires sun to be set up by something else.
