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

4 votes

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.

This is the troll mega evolution.

Gyarados@Gyaradosite
Ability: Mold Breaker

Thunder Wave- Even though Mold Breaker was added for maximum sweeping potential, it turns Gyarados into less of one. Now Thunder Wave can paralyze anything.

Taunt- Combined with Thunder Wave this is a real troll.

Waterfall- STAB that pretty much OHKOs everything.

Earthquake- Another OHKO move.

Mega Gyarados is a different Pokemon than what he once was and why Game Freak didn't change him into a Water Dragon type is beyond me. Give him a Jolly nature and 252 HP/128 Atk/128 Special EVs.

Note that this is just my take on Mega Gyarados and you can still do a Dragon Dance set with Dragon Dance and Outrage replacing Thunder Wave and Taunt.
