Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Dragon Tail should be paired with Draco Meteor for maximum damage potential.  
  • Fire Fang pales in comparison to Dragon Tail.
  • Hydro Pump is preferred to Fire Blast for being faster and stronger. 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Dragon Tail excels in power, but Fire Fang shines against many Salamence counters.

  • Hydro Pump is the best charge move because of how early it hits.

  • Although Draco Meteor hits late, it does a number if not dodged.

  • Fire Blast’s counter coverage is offset by a late damage window.
Rating Explanation

Salamence is a powerful 'mon that stands tall among the other Dragon-types. The second highest non-legendary Attack stat puts its potential above Dragonite. Draco Meteor is an amazing addition to the move pool. Access to only 1-bar charge moves is its only drawback. Having access to a fast and charged Fire-type move is useful for the Ice-type hard counter. 

Basically, you're going to want a Salamence.
