I can't think of a good moveset for physical attack Dragonite.

The problem is that it doesn't get the elemental punches in this game. So there aren't many good physical attacks that provide coverage. Any ideas?

Also, I already have a mixed sweeper with mild nature. That one has hurricane, thunder, aqua tail, dragon rush.

You can get Fire Punch and Thunder Punch by going to a move re-learner this gen.

Aside from that, well three of your slots will be occupied by Dragon Claw/Dragon Dance/Extreme Speed, so you could go with Waterfall, Aqua Tail, Earthquake, Stone Edge.... the list goes on, Dragonite has about the same coverage options as every other Dragon, which is to say it's pretty good.

What are you talking about? It gets Fire Punch and Thunder Punch from the Move Relearner. Thus:

- Dragon Dance
- Dragon Claw/Outrage
- Earthquake
- Extreme Speed/Fire Punch/Thunder Punch

is the usual set.

I had a DD Dragonite with Dragon Claw (can be replaced by Dragon Rush or Outrage, but I preferred the reliability, and hate being locked into a move), Extremespeed, Dragon Dance (duh) and Fire Punch.

Just swap Fire Punch and you've got a good moveset there.

No coverage, wut u talkin bout?

It gets fire and thunder punch from the move relearner and when you consider that with the STAB move, dragon dance, extremespeed and EQ, I'd say it's pretty hard to choose 4 moves to use!

For a full physical sweeper or whatever, I use:

Item: Weakness Policy
Spread: 240 Attack/240 Sp. Def/ 30(?) Def
Dragon Dance
Fire Punch (Heart Scale Move)
Dragon Claw

This things wrecks **** up! well for me :) The reason for 240 sp def is so it can take an ice beam better along with the multiscale ability. Although maybe 30 Speed is better too.. but this covers most things that are a threat to Dragonite :) Also, Extremespeed is very good also!

Here's my current set:

Item: leftovers
Dragon dance
Earthquake/fire punch
Dragon claw

This dragonite is meant to be more bulky, and earthquake is mostly for heatran.
