Nature: Hasty
Trait: Sand Veil
Item: Leftovers/Sitrus Berry/ Focus Band
- Dragon Rush/Draco Meteor (Covers Dragon weakness)
- Stone Edge (Comeplete Coverage against Ice Weakness)
- Crunch (Suggestion, May lower Foe's defense, Also good if Foe has Froslass)
- Sandstorm/Earthquake/Brick Break (Sandstorm: Increases Evasion, Earthquake: High Power and Accuracy, Brick Break: Coverage against Ice since Stone edge doesn't have as high accuracy.)
My Garchomp has none of these moves, in fact, I just made it up, but since I thought of this, Im gunnna Give him these moves
Ha lol shiny Mega Garchomp is pink.
shiny garchomp is.... .WUT
I'd just give it speed and HP EVs and spam Swords Dance......
 - Dragon Claw
 - Iron Head (fairies)
 - Earthquake
 - Swords Dance
Simple and to the point.
I think shiny megas generally don't look as good to discourage genning shinies... Maybe.
Garchomp @ Garchompite
Trait: Rough Skin----->Sand Force
Adamant Nature (+Atk -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spe/4 HP
-Swords Dance/Hone Claws
-Dragon Rush
-Fire Fang
Garchomp - The Outrage Sweeper
You will need to breed with a Dragonite, Haxorus, Druddigion, Hydreigon, and Goodra with the move "Outrage", because they learn this move by leveling up, which is what Garchomp can't. If you play OR/AS, you can just go to the battle resort, go to the second tutor, tutor outrage to your current Garchomp. It costs 16BP.

Garchomp @ Persim Berry - To avoid confusion after using outrage 2 or 3 times in a row.
 Adamant Nature (+Atk -SpA) You will need this nature. You don't need SpA
Trait: Sand Veil/Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spa/4 HP
    -Outrage - Strongest Dragon type move ever
     -Earthquake - Obvious Reasons that its the best move
     -Iron Tail/Iron Head - Iron tail and Hone Claws match up. Iron Head and Swords dance match up.
     -Hone Claws/Swords Dance
Held item = Expert Belt
Nature = Jolly
1. Earthquake
2. Dragon Claw
3. Rock Slide
4. Fire Blast/Fire Fang for coverage.
Vote if you like this moveset :)

Outrage, because you get trapped either way. Earthquake, no explaination required, Rock Slide, for Ice coverage, and Iron Head, for more Ice coverge and Fairies.

Honestly as a Garchomp user and always will use and have Garchomp on my team. This is what I've seen works best with him, based on the times I've had to modify him to work the best he can.
Garchomp @ rocky helmet
The reason you want to have a rocky helmet is for three main reasons. Reason #1 Talonflame, a brave bird from a talon unto a chomp with rough skin and rocky helmet could cost it a ko without having to even attack it (that's if if has a life orb) Reason #2 Mega Khangaskan and Fake outers, a fake out from a mega khangaskan unto a Garchomp might drop it's HP in half do to its ability and item. Any other will waste a turn and damage itself. Reason #3 Synergy with Rough Skin
Abillity: Rough Skin
Reasons: Mentioned above
Nature: Mostly Jolly and Maybe Adamant
Reasons: A jolly Garchomp is really fast and faster this way and is already a hard hitter if your willing to risk another chomp hitting you might as well Mega with Baton Pass speed, Scarf or Band
EV Spread: Max Attack and Speed with some defense
Reasons: Can hit hard, fast and take a hit while still damaging the opponent because of its Abillity
Rock Slide (covers thunderus, talonflame, volcarona, etc)
Dragon Claw (STAB!!...and hits always)
Iron Head (Two words: Fairies and Ice)
Earthquake (Stab and easy to take down defensive threats)

Pokemon that he has good Synergy with:
Semi-support Speed Boost M Blaziken
Fast Offensive Greninja
Contrary Serperior
Charizard Y
Any good Baton Passer
Tip: Most should have protect to keep from getting harmed from an EQ

Well wanna see my Chomp in action watch me on YouTube ^^ BlazingAnima!

Item: Choice Scarf | Nature: Jolly
Strategy Wise:
DragonRush/Pulse (Preferance Attack vs Sp.Attack)
My opinion:
Item: Leftovers/SitrusBerry
What it comes down to is coverage and preferance. Garchomp is pretty versatile so you can run a lot of moves on it

A nice setup that I use with my garchomp is

Garchomp(M)@ Choice scarf

Trait: Sand Veil

Impish(+Def, -SpAtk)

Dragon Rush - STAB to take care of dragons

Earthquake- STAB and just super powerful in general

Stone Edge- Really powerful and works well with Garchomps high attack to take care of ice types

Poison Stab- To take care of the fairy types

(Poison Stab could be exchanged with hone claws)

Stealth Rock
Dragon Tail

Weakness Destroyer

Ability : Rough Skin
Evs: 252 atk 252 spe 4 Def

Swords Dance for raised Attack on the moves above

[email protected] Helmet
Nature- Jolly
Ability- Rough Skin
252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP

Hone claws
Iron tail
Dragon Rush

Hone claws boosts the lower accuracy of iron tail and dragon rush
Iron tail hits both dragon weaknesses super effectively.
Dragon rush is strong and STAB.
If garchomp could only learn one move, It would be Earthquake

Helmet + Skin is annoying as all heck.

Abillity-->Rough Skin
Held Item-->Leftovers

First Move-->Draco Meteor (Because the dragon weakness)
Second Move-->Iron Tail (Because the fairy weakness)
Third Move-->Stone Edge (Because the ice weakness)
Forth Move-->Earthquake (Because it is a ground type Pokemon to)

Nature : Jolly
EVs : 252 ATK, 252 SPD, 6 HP

Dragon Claw : good power, high accuracy, dependable move
Stone Edge : high power, medium accuracy, deals with flying and fire types
Swords Dance / Crunch : Swords Dance if you want to boost attack, Crunch if you want to destroy psychic types
Earthquake : high power, high accuracy, dependable move, deals with fire types and rock types

I would go with:
earthquake(high damage and hits everybody)
dragon claw(his attack is high and it gets STAB)
brick break(to kill those stupid ice types)
swords dance(its attack is already high, but its now higher!)

Sandstorm if he has the ability that when there is a sandstorm his evasion raises.
outrage whem prisim berry is attached
Giga impact.
Not bad!!

answered by
I'm sorry, but Giga Impact? Giga Impact doesn't do any super effective damage AND you waste a turn recharging. Dragon Rush hits with the same power, but without the troublesome recharge.
