Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Dragon for flying or Flying for flying?

0 votes

Because I was thinking of getting Hydreigon for my Pokemon black game, but I don't know if it's worth it to go to N's castle, then train a Zewlious (I don't know if I spelled it right). I only have a level 30 evolved Pidove (Middle form, which I don't know) for flying. I don't know if I want it. I have a moveset for a Hydreigon, but I don't know if I want to go through the training.

Moveset I was thinking=

Fly
Dragon Rush
Dragon Pulse
Hyper Voice

This is certainly not a bad moveset but will land you trouble at the E4 since 2 dragon moves,  one normal move an unreliable flying type move don't give much coverage and will get your Hydreigon KO'd when batting Marshal even with fly. Hydreigon has a wide movepool and has acces to really powerful moves. I recommend Ghetsis' Hydreigon's moveset which is:
- Dragon Pulse
- Focus Blast
- Dark Pulse/ Crunch
- Surf/ Earthquake

This Moveset goes well with a Mild/Rash Natured Hydreigon.

Flying for Flying because Hydreigon has good moves that come in handy when battling the Elite 4. Just a reminder that Zweilous evolves at level 64 so be wary of that.

As for Flying types, these are the recommended ones:
If your starter was Tepig

  • Swanna

Swanna is a very awesome bird that can really be useful in-game especially if your starter was Tepig then you have a flyer and a surfer. Not to forget that Swanna has acces to Brave Bird

  • Swoobat

Swoobat is a decent flyer too and is incredibly fast. It's downfalls are it's poor defences but it is truly a nice edition

If your starter was Oshawott

If you chose Oshawott then I recommend Unfezant. It is a very decent Pokémon with pleasing a attack statand decent speed. It has a very shallow movepool though. But this is a nice moveset:

Unfezant @ Silk Scarf
Nature: Jolly/ Adamant
Trait: Super Luck
Moveset:

  • Return
  • Fly
  • U-turn
  • Roost

Swoobat is also an option

*If you starter was Snivy *

If you chose Snivy then I recommend Swann. Swanna is a truly fantastic Pokémon to have and a great aid to many teams that lack a surfer

Swoobat is always the second option as it has great speed

But there is one flyer that tops them all...Braviary. The only downer is that it is a white exclusive and it evolves at level 54.

Hope this helped
