Rain sweeper!

Dragonite (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Multiscale
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Thunder
  • Hurricane
  • Surf
  • Agility

Thunder and Hurricane get 100% accuracy in the rain, which is awesome.
Surf is boosted by then rain.
Agility boosts Dragonite's Speed, allowing it out outspeed quite a bit of Swift Swimmers, as well as Scarfed Pokemon.

My moveset is simple (Mostly Special moves bare in mind), BUT not easy, So long as your Dragonite has no high or low stats, with the natures: "Hardy, Docile, Bashful, Quirky or Serious", then teach it the special attacks! Or If your Dragonite has a "Modest" nature then it is an added bonus for all attacks to be special!!

Anyway, my moveset i've teached my Dragonite at level 100 with the nature "Serious" is:

  • Surf (Against Rock, Fire, Ground)

  • Thunderbold (Against Water, Flying)

  • Fire Blast (Against Grass, Ice, Bug, Steel)
  • Outrage (Against Dragon and "Other Pokemon")

Bare in mind that if you use the move Surf and then Thunderbolt on a "Normal" pokemon, the effects can be devistating! Just imagine, if you got wet and then being electricuted; OUCH!!

But always use the move "Outrage" as a last resort! Do NOT give Dragonite Hyper Beam or Dragon Pulse! Unless it has a high Special Attack Stat!

Also, give Dragonite Yache Berry against Ice type attacks!! It can weaken the Ice moves!

And last but not least; Give it (If possible) Max PP on all moves as this will highten the amount of moves your Dragonite can use!

Interesting one I've tried a few times with varying degrees of success.

Special Sweeper

Nature: Modest (+Special Attack -Attack)
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Multiscale (although Inner Focus would work)
EVs: 252 Sp.Atk, 4 Sp.Def, 252 Speed
Focus Blast/Surf

Designed to clear up lategame. Obviously, best used in rain. Agility patches up its subpar speed. Hurricane gets STAB, is very powerful and gets perfect accuracy in rain. Thunder hits most of the Steel types who resist Hurricane for neutral damage or better. Focus Blast 2HKOs Ferrothorn, and stops Tyranitar ruining your day. Surf gets a pseudo STAB in Rain. You don't need to do any breeding or get any Shards for this set - Agility and Hurricane are learnt by level up, Thunder, Focus Blast and Surf are all TM (HM for Surf). Only downside is you are walled by Chansey Blissey and Specially defensive Jirachi.
