What should be the best moveset for my Garchomp?
Top Voted Answer
Geeze half of you seem to think that the Special/Physical split didn't happen
here are some moves you could use:
Earthquake (Good power, good accuracy, and STAB!)
Dragon Claw/Rush (Accuracy vs Power) [DON"T use Dragon Pulse it is Special NOT Physical]
Stone Edge (Good Power, get's Ice types and Flying types}
Swords Dance (To boost the power of these already strong moves)
I hope this helps!

Dragon Rush/Dragon Claw would be a good choice for STAB. Just have to choose between power or accuracy.
Swords Dance couldn't hurt either.

Dragon Rush for sure. but I don't have Earthquake for my Garchomp.

Dragon Rush/Dragon Claw/Outrage is good for STAB.
Sword Dance for increasing attack.
Fire Fang for Ice pokemon and Steel.
Stone Edge for a filler move.

Dragon Rush, Earthhquake, Draco Meteor, and Outrage
there all great moves and very powerful u coud probably take any pokemon out in 1 shot

Depends on your hold item and Nature. Attack is by far the best stat Garchomp has (base 130), followed by HP (base 108) and Speed (base 102), so Jolly or Adamant Natures and Physical Moves will help immensely. Yache Berry helps VS Ice Type Moves and Choice Band and Choice Scarf help with the powerhouse nature of this Pokemon.
Go with Dragon Claw/Dragon Rush/Outrage (Choice Band/Choice Scarf for Outrage), Earthquake, and 2 filler moves (Rock Slide OR Stone Edge, Iron Tail OR Iron Head, Aerial Ace, Crunch, Fire Fang, Body Slam, Brick Break, Poison Jab, Aqua Tail, Draco Meteor (Special Move, lowers Sp.Atk 2 stages), Giga Impact (recharges next turn)).
Dragon Type and Ground Type Moves cover every Pokemon for at least neutral damage except Skarmory, Shedinja, Bronzor/Bronzong with Levitate, and any Steel Type (except Dialga) under the effects of the move Magnet Rise (if they can learn it). This makes Fire Fang a great filler option.

my Garchomp have this move:
consider the fact that this pokemon is an ATk pkmn not a Sp Atk(like alakazam) ,so i have build this one with some of the best phisical move that are good for STAB

Dragon Rush (Better then Dragon Claw)
Stone Edge (Filler) or you can use Swords Dance if you would like
Fire Fang (Takes care of ICE/GRASS Type Pokemons)
chris17blue - 8 years ago
Dragon Claw (better than dragon Rush because it has a lot more trouble actualy hitting the target)
Rock slide (or stone edge) for ice-types
Crunch (or sandstorm for its ability)

2: Dragon Pulse(Dragon Claw = 70 + no other secondary effects, Dragon Pulse = 90 + no other secondary effects)
3: Dragon Rush
4: Flamethrower(If there is a ice-type)

Well i for certain would breed into getting outrage over either Dclaw or Drush dragon rush is terribly innaccurate plus Outrage gives that little extra STAB oomph, getting that flinch off is nice i suppose...but missing is much more devastating when that slow ice attack comes back at you.
Dr4g0nR4g3 - 7 years ago
well, to be honest most of these answers abuse the dragon type. garchomp should have a well rounded moveset, good moves would be DRAGON RUSH ( for its massive power), CRUNCH ( for the psychic pokemon), EARTHQUAKE ( because it can take out mostly any poekmon in a single blow, and finally FIRE FANG or FLAMETHROWER, ( grass, ice, and steel types) that way you can have a well rounded garchomp that know powerful moves. You should also make it hold a dragon fang to make its DRAGONRUSH an even stronger move.( found behind the pokemon center in celestic town.) Oh and if you want u can make garchomp learn SANDSTORM instead of the FIRE moves to boost its evasiveness.

I have a level 100 Garchomp that learns Flamethrower, Outrage, Earthquake and Crunch.
Flamethrower for Grass,Steel
Crunch for Ghost, Psychic
Earthquake for Steel, Rock, Poison, Dark, Fire.
Outrage for Dragon, and many other types...
My Garchomp did an AWESOME job on letting me get 100 wins in a row at the Battle Tower, so feel free to copy.

I have a Garchomp here are its moves i recommend them:
Dragon Pulse(More accurate than dragon rush and more powerful than dragon claw)
Stone Edge(for pesky ice types)
gamer7845 - 7 years ago
I'd say this:
But if you don't think that is good,
Then do this:
And if you terribly want Earthquake in there,
This one's terrible.
But that's only my opinion.
So choose one.
huhcarez - 7 years ago
Here's the best one:
Draco Meteor (140 Power, 90 accuracy)
Dragon Rush (100 Power, 75 accuracy)
Fire Blast (120 Power, 85 accuracy)
Shadow Claw (150 Power, 90 accuracy)
No matter what, you just gotta have DRACO METEOR and SHADOW CLAW.
huhcarez - 7 years ago
Here's a great move set for Garchomp.
FireFang (To kill the pesky Ice types)
Hope I could help.

I think it should learn earthquake to do massive stabb damage, then reast while holding lum berry for instant awakeining then swords dance and after that outrage/dragonclaw/draco meteor i personally would prefer dragon claw
