What is a good moveset for Gyarados? (page 2)

Mine knows:

Earthquake: High power, double damage against Pokemon using Dig, high accuracy, used to deal with Rock and Electric types.

Strength: Good damage, high accuracy.

Dragon Dance: Boosts both Attack and Speed.

Waterfall: Good damage, high accuracy, decent chance to cause flinching, used to deal with Rock types, STAB.

If a Pokemon were to use dig,it wouldn't damage Gyarados because they are water and flying types which makes them immune to ground.
But yes,it does cover for rock and electric weakness.
Double damage though. So quicker KO.
