Fire fang or fire punch?

3 votes

I have recently breed a gabite it is now a lvl 38 it knows stone edge, earthquake, sandstorm, and dragon claw.

I am thinking of replaceing sandstorm for fire fang or fire punch becuase ice is it's main weakness I know stone edge covers it but i need coverage for mamoswine to and it helps with steel types with levitate.

Fire Fang and Fire Punch are both Physical moves. Fire Punch is more powerful and more accurate so definitely go with that one rather than fang.

However, I personally would go for a fighting move since you get better type coverage - ice, rock, steel, dark and normal. Garchomp can learn Brick Break which is fairly powerful.

I think Pokemaster might be wrong. Punch and Fang both can burn, but Fang may also make a foe flinch, and Punch can't.
