Garchomp doesn't have the raw attacking power of Salamence, but it's a lot more bulky and because of that, it was bumped to ubers. I'm personally against this. I've used both Garchomp and Salamence and honestly, neither seem to be much better than the other. They both have their roles and they play it nicely, but they're definitely not broken. I prefer Salamence mainly because of it starting with a base 135 Attack stat and base 110, which allows it to do plenty of mixed sweeping right when it hits the floor.

If you pit them both against each other, I'm pretty sure the faster one would win. In this case, Garchomp. One Outrage is all it takes from either side.

I'd have to give it to Salamence. Salamence has a better Attack and a much higher Special Attack (so if the player teaches moves more from the special category instead of physical, you can take a better stab at the Special Defense, which in both cases is much lower than the physical defense). Move-wise Salamence also has an advantage, as it has a broader range of elemental moves to choose from than Garchomp. Intimidate also puts Salamence up a cut higher, as both pokemon rely more on physical attacks if moves are only taken from level ups.
One of the main advantages I can see with Garchomp though is if it keeps Sandstorm, as it has a higher evasion during Sandstorm, but my vote still goes with Salamence.

Salamence. Didn't really care for the stats ether way, I much perfer the aggressive sky dragon look of Salamence as one of my faves over the still appealing landshark look of Garchomp.

How is one even supposed to decide on a choice this difficult? Both Garchomp and Salamence are complete beasts but in the end I went with Salamence due to the fact that just maybe one with EV training in DEF might be able to outlast the faster Garchomp...But meh, it could go either way in my opinion

Garchomp because I use to own with it back when it was still considered OU instead of UBER.

one on one garchomp wins against salamance...but in a team salamance is more versitile since it does have a high sp.atk along with a high atk as well but garchomp provides electric immunity which makes it easier to sub in. Both are good but i say garchomp...i prefer a pokemon with more bulk

Salamence, not because of stats or any of that. But because Salamence looks better.

Taking into account they both are x4 weakness to Ice type moves they're both even.

But Salamence can have a higher range of moves IF bred correctly.

So I chose Salamence cos it can learn Fire Moves, Water Moves, Air Moves, Dragon Moves (Duh), Ground Moves etc.

My favorite party



QUOTE(Flying Luxray @ Jul 2 2009, 04:22 PM) *
Well, I like Salamence more, but Garchomp is faster, and with a strong enough move, could probably defeat Salamence, unless there was a Focus Sash on Salamence, then it would probably be able to take down Garchomp in one hit. I'm going to go with Salamence.

unless there also was a sash on garchomp, how come salamence gets a sash and not chomp?

my vote goes to chomp, i had my share of chomp/mence encounters back in the day, and chomp won 9 out of 10 or forced a switch, also, under stealthrock, mence can get OHKO'd in any variant (except maybe hp/def, but who the hell runs that?) by a D.Claw, not to mention outrage, that base 102 speed gives him enough to outspeed, that, when you are fighting dragons is the most important thing.

intimidate is a great ability (better than sandveil on it's own), but most chomps go Dance or banded, so it rarely affects them. the thing tha defines who wins this battle is the mence, if he DD'ed and a gachomp came in, garchomp is out, if he didn't DD, mence is out.

because of this, chomp gets my vote, although i do agree, mence has the higher array of attacks, ranging from physical to special.

Garchomp, partially because it's very powerful, partially because I think Salamence is kinda stupid looking, but mostly because IT'S A FREAKING LAND SHARK and how is that not awesome?

as much as i adore Salamance - i think Garchomp has the upper hand. mainly 'cause of its speed; sometimes, one hit is all you get in a battle, and first one wins.

still a difficult choice and close battle.

Garchomp would win. Salamence is out-sped by Garchomp. I haven't ran the calculations yet, so I don't know if Garchomp can land a 1hko on Salamence after factoring Intimidate.

Garchomp for both looks and stats. Honestly, how can you not like land sharks?
I really like both of them, but Garchomp takes my vote.
