ofc, but DB/DC is rated A bcs of friendly dodge style, yes? If vapo with AT deal almost same dmg w/o dodge why hes rated B since AT vapo has more potential for dodges. I am talking generaly, not really only vs blissey. It was hardest first mon i found in gym so it ended to test dps on it.
Why not? People have often compared BS to DC. Is it because it's Dragonite everyone gets touchy? In the post clearly says he wants to know why a 3 bar charge move on Vape isn't valued the same way a 3 bar charge move on a Dragonite. It is a very valid point and question and who are you to tell anyone not to compare different Pokémon species? What else are we suppose to compare AT to Aqua Jet?
I prefer AT over HP for offense just the same way I prefer DB/DC over other Dnite's MS. I'm one of the "cultist" of DB/DC. ? The reason why I love DB/DC is the flexibility to dodge anything without getting hit. Players like myself highly value efficiency. So we did get a little touchy when all the DT movesets were higher on the previous ranking list. I knew something was wrong when DT/HB ranked higher than DB/DC. I hate HB. Too damn slow.
I have Dnites with every MS and fought with all the DB and DT variants and fought against every MS. Offensively DB/DC takes out the most defenders. My second favorite is DT/O.
Most experienced players I know prefer Aqua Tail to Hydro Pump precisely because of the effective dodging it allows for -- not to mention it's the only really good Vaporeon defensive moveset currently.
Aqua Tail Vape is awesome, and I wouldn't worry that it's only rated "B" by Gamepress. They aren't infallible with their rating system.
Another thing not mentioned is Vap's Water Gun was nerfed with the quick move change so they do less damage compared to before. I think it went from 6 to 5 so that's 16% less?
Mixed in with not top tier attack stats (Vap=205 vs. Espeon=261, Dragonite=263) and Vaporeons will do a lot less damage in the same amount of time.
Yes, it's more tanky, but it's damage is much less against something like a Blissey where you can actually time out a lot.
