I CLAIM SALAMENCE



Well, let's start off as this. Which is, in your opinion, better.

STATISTICS
A Garchomp | B Salamence

HP: 108 | 95
ATK: 130 | 135
DEF: 95 | 80
SPA: 80 | 110
SPD: 85 | 80
SPE: 102 | 100

Would you rather choose:
A. Better speed, less attack
B. Slower speed, more attack

These sweeping giants have marginally separated stats, but that is all that can make a difference.

(assume all this as a neutral natures) Garchomp has faster speed, so it can KO salamence OHKO or 2HKO. But, if salamence manages to survive the hit, using Draco Meteor can possibly OHKO 'chomp giving his higher special attack.

Also, please discuss if mence or chomp should switch places in their catergories (OU, Uber).

Personally, every time I've used Garchomp against Salamence, even matching the level, Garchomp has managed to succeed, suffering heavy damage though. Garchomp is faster, so with a good placed Dragon Claw or even another move like Outrage would put Salamence down in one move, or it would possibly take it in two. Either way, because of Garchomps defence stats as well, it could stand up and defend itself against the flying dragon Salamence.

Personally, I think Salamence doesn't stand a chance against Garchomp but you never really know until you put them face to face to see who's the better dragon.

i think salamence is better
type-wise, salamence has a huge advantage over garchomp since salamence is flying and garchomp is ground. plus, i think salamence can learn much more type variated moves

This is a bit of a toughie, seeing as both dragons are pure monsters. I'd have to side with Garchomp, seeing as Salamance's Flying Type causes it to be crippled by strong rock attacks due to its poor defenses. Plus, Sand Veil beats Intimidate every time. wink.gif

Battling wise, its really tough one to call. Suppose it largelly comes down to which trainer has superior ability.

But looks wise, it has to be Salamence. Garchomp is ridiculously ugly.

I'm going to have to go with Garchomp just because of his speed and almost always OHKO move against Mence.

I like Salamence because it's more powerful, and because he looks cooler.

I think Garchomp is better, because he resist stealth rock instead of being weak to it and is immune to the common sandstorm, I also like the fact that hes immune to twave. They are both pretty got at breaking walls, Salamence because he can go mixed and Garchomp because of sword dance. The good think about Salamance I guess is intimidate which kind of makes up for his lower defence, better mixed attacking and harder to revenge kill with Dragon dance but most team back a pokémon with a priory attack (especially Scizor). But I still think Garchomp is better overall, but I dunno if he really deserves to be Uber..

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.

This is a signature. Amazing, no? But, your brain cannot understand the full awesomeness of such a signature. The awesome-icity of this signature is killing your brain cells. And, if you try long enough, your brain will explode. Moral of the story: Don't lie.
Exactly.

i like salamnce. if you give a few extra ev's in def instead of speed on mence them you can survive a hit from chomp and completely take out chomp in one hit.

If Salamence is EV trained in the right stat, then it's a complete powerhouse pokemon. However, I suppose the same could be said for Garchomp.

I'm going to have to decide on the basis that Salmence looks cooler. Garchomp scares me.

:/ I dunno...

I think Garchomp would OHKO Salamance, since it's faster, and speed can make all the difference.

I think Garchomp. If it hits first, and OHKOs, then less attack isn't necessarily as important :P

Obviusly the winner would be Garchomp

In the battles that i have had with Salamences some are faster but with equipment a Garchomp can beat a salamence even if he gets damaged too much.

So i go for Garchomp

It's a shame Garchomp got bumped to Uber, cause I prefer him way more than Salamence. Although in a battle, Garchomp's attacking spree can but halted due to Salamence's Intimidate, unless of course Garchomp switches into Salamence.

My vote is still for Garchomp.
