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 :)
Ability:sand veil
Evs: 252 attack/252 speed

Since garchomp has high attack and only 2 weekneses
its a great pokemon allthogh its 4X week agenst ice
so id suggest:
earthquake (has high attack its just a killing mechine)
stone edge ( good physical and type coverge)
outrage (great physical attck holding Persim Berry )
and sword dance\sandstorm
sword dance (boosts attack)
sandstorm (its abilety is sand veil )

what about pokemon like abomasnow with no rock weakness and adding the truth of stone edges accuracy.
abomasnow HAS rock weakness
Yeah although grass is super-effective on rock rock isn't not very effective against grass
Incorrect. Rock does full damage against Grass. It takes double damage from Grass but that's irrelevant to this discussion.
If he is holding the persim berry he can't hold the GARCHOMPITE! Sorry for caps I wanted to get the point across. (If anyone doesn't know what this Item is, it's a mega stone that allows Garchomp to MEGA Evolve.
Mamoswine is the only ice type not to be weak to rock
Umm, TheSinful, he said ISN'T not very effective, so you just repeated what he said.
I agree much with you and I also find rock slide, earthquake, dragon claw, and brick break to be a great move set as well.
you spelled mechine (machine) wrong
This is for people that play PBB
Held Item: SawsBuck Cofee
Ability: Rough Skin
nature: Adamant
Sword Dance
Dragon Claw
Iron Head
What about EVs and nature?
I thought he was 4X month...

Sorry to say, but after the 4th gen, pokemon became weird, the best are 1-4 gen
4th gen is the best in my opinion other than the first gen and I agree with Mega Evolution Guru, an I LOVED THE STARTERS! The Pidgeot clone was very good too, in my opinion
Gen4 is my fav.My fav starter of gen4 is chimchar.
Why dual chop and not dragon claw?
I guess on dual chop you have 2 chances to critical hit

No SubChomp has been suggested yet? What?

Garchomperz (Garchomp) @ Leftovers
Trait: Rough Skin
Jolly Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
-Sword Dance/ Hone Claws /Fire Fang
-Outrage/Dragon Claw/Dragon Rush

So, the point of this set it to go in there and set up on something you can resist or wall, such Forretress or something along those lines. Start it all off with a Substitute, to guarantee you get at least a an Attack boost with either Hone Claws or Sword Dance. Earthquake lets you hit anything that resist your Dragon STAB, while being boosted by STAB. Great for hitting Pokemons like Tyranitar and Heatran. Now, Outrage is just raw power, and a great move, especially at +2. Dragon Claw is if you dont want to be hitting Ferrothorn, and would like to set up some more on it or hit it with EQ, and not lose HP while doing so. Finally, Dragon rush is only here if you wanted a stronger move than Dragon Claw, but without Outrage's effect. Note that it is very recommended you use Hone Claws with this, as missing could cost you the match. Finally, you're not the set up type, Fire Fang can be used over SD/Hone Claws for more coverage.

Item: Choice-specs
Ability: Sand-veil
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 6 hp


Choice-specs gives this guy 383 Attack, that is pretty good. Dragon-pulse is STAB. Flamethrower is necessary coverage over Ice and with Dragon-pulse is great coverage. Earth-power is STAB. Draco-meteor would be last chance for damage power while HP(Electric would be for more coverage.

This is my mixed set of ninja skill:

Garchomp (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Flamethrower
- Dragon Pulse
- Earthquake
- Brick Break

The Scarf makes it Super Fast, so it outruns every threat. EVs make it Mixed. Flamethrower is coverage against Ice Types, and also permanantly kills Ferrothorn, which is a pain in... well, it's a pain everywhere. D-Pulse is STAB, and covers Dragon Types that are super effective. Earthquake is STAB and makes this guy a killer. Brick Break is for Ice types that have high Special Defense, as well as breaking Screens.

answered by
Can Dragon rush cover for Dragon pulse? Also how would I get this Dragon pulse in Pokemon diamond?
Oh god.... mixed chomp

Oh no. Not Garchomp. Don't let me use my unbeatable beast in a battle. This is one of my favorite(not to mention the best there is)pokemon out there. I got my Garchomp (Vick) over the GTS at level 100... and let me tell you something, It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to beat this insane beast. This Dragon and Ground pokemon has insane speed and attack stats. It is easily one of the top 3 Dragon pokemon out there.(Unfortunately Latios is probrably number one). The moves you need to teach it are the following:

  1. Fire Fang- This gets rid of the 4x weakness to ice.

  2. Dragon Rush- Although not good accuracy it has STAB and a total power of 150. (Beats using outrage because it attacks continuously and will confuse you)

  3. Stone Edge- Very High Critical hit ratio with it being strong against ice also.

  4. Earthquake- STAB. AND attacks all other pokemon on field without Levitate or being a flying type.

You could get rid of Fire Fang for Aqua Tail but you would have to do this in Heartgold or Soulsilver. You could also get rid of Stone Edge for Rock Slide which can make opponents flinch and attacks both opponents. The only way I have ever lost with my Garchomp is when it faces super fast Ice type pokemon, LATIOS >:-( or a strong pokemon with great defense like Snorlax.

answered by
I like this moveset,I'm gonna try it!except I may change the earthquake.
Yes! I was trying to get a good nature on my garchomp so I was hatching eggs and I got a shiny gible :D Definitely using this set.
What.? Latios is not number one dragon. He is frail and worth nothing when it can't boost itself. Mega rayquaza broke the u ears tier. It is extremely fast and powerfull plus unpredictable. It is really hard to survive a hit from it. And dragonite, salamence, hydreigon, haxorus maybe even noivern and kingdra can work better than latios
I love this moveset just two things I would change would be the rock slide for better accuracy and flinching an dthe Dragon rush to Dragon claw due to 100% accuracy and STAB
Nice Moveset! I just feel like if I run stone edge I'll run out of PP before I land a hit off, and when I finally get a hit they switch into a super tank physical wall ground type
Rainbow Sheep you could run scope lens on garchomp if you're worried about accuracy

This question is kinda old but...

Garchomp(M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Sand Veil

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

Outrage- STAB and powerful
EQ- STAB and coverage
Stone Edge/Rock Slide- Coverage + Ice types- RS for flinch OR SE for criticals
Fire Fang/ Brick Break/ Swords Dance/ Hone Claws- Fire Fang or Brick Break for Ice types, Swords Dance for raising attack by 2 stages, Hone Claws just makes it amazing!

answered by
Why not aqua Tail? It covers other ground types that you really don't have anything for.

Garchomp @ Garchompite
Trait: Rough Skin----->Sand Force
Nature: Jolly (+Spe -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Spe/252 Atk/4 HP

  • Earthquake
  • Dragon Claw/Dragon Rush
  • Stone Edge
  • Poison Jab/Iron Head

Earthquake and Dragon Claw/Dragon Rush are really good for Garchomp's STAB moves, and deal a good amount of damage. Stone Edge can be used for annoying flying types such as Talonflame or Charizard. Poison Jab or Iron Head are good for covering fairies, one of Garchomp's weaknesses. You can also substitute out one of those moves for Swords Dance.

answered by
Practically the same moveset and EV's I use on my Garchomp, except I don't use Garchompite, I use Rocky Helmet, as Mega Garchomp's max speed with 31 IV's and a beneficial nature for Speed is only 311, compared to regular Garchomp's, which is 333.  I also utilize Aqua Tail, to surprise people.

This set only really works if you max out the PP on all of its moves, allowing for the not-so-great accuracy on some moves.

Garchomp @Weakness Policy
Ability: Rough Skin
Evs: 252Atk 252Spe 4SpDef
Nature: Adamant
Swords Dance (Required on any 'Chomp)
Dragon Rush (STAB)
Earthquake (STAB)
Iron Tail (Weaknesses - GONE!)

The Weakness Policy really help as if you get hit by an Ice/Fairy/Dragon move, your SpDef and Def raise sharply, which is so useful when facing Ninetales or anything with Ice Beam/Moonblast.

Can somebody delete this? I've posted a better moveset below!

I like the fact that your garchomp has high attack. If he has high special attack, mabe have flamethrower to go against ice because it is more powerful than stone edge or brick break, but those arn't bad either. If garchomp has alot of happines & you want a sweeper which garchomp wouldn't be bad at, then teach him dragon rush or outrage instead of dragon claw. Earthquake is really good with offensive pokemon (unlike shuckle) so it is a very good addition plus it gets STAB. If you feel you need a power up, try workup( if Sp attack is used or swords dance if only attack. It depends on your stategy, style of battling, preferences, & whom you are battling.

Good item- dragon fang if sweeping with dragon type move)/(if alot of hp only) life orb

If possible-

EVs 252 attack, 252speed, 4 hp or Sp attack

Ability- rough skin or if used in desert or something sand veil

Good partner- someone with sand stream or with fire & or dragon moves.

Nature- adamant (if not using flame thrower) naughty (if using flamethrower)

Super cool pokemon though it's not mi prefered powerhouse.

Adamant/Jolly Nature
Attack and Speed Ev training
Roughskin/Sand Veil (Depends on the kind of team you use)
Muscle Band Held Item

Dual Chop: STAB, more powerful than Dragon claw Ok accuracy.
Earthquake: STAB, why wouldn't someone teach it to him.
Fire Fang: Deals with weakness chance to burn or flinch and type coverage.
Stone Edge: Good power and type coverage.

Mine is used in mi sandstorm team making it hard to hit due to its ability, if you want to more annoying you can throw in a Double Team in his set.

answered by
Dual Chop and Dragon Claw are the same power.
Double Team is banned in most competitive play.
ya but actually dragon claw is better but dual chop can break subs and make sturdy useless
Improved it...somewhat.
Adamant/Jolly Nature
Attack and Speed Evs
Sand Veil Ability
Brightpowder Held Item

Outrage:Why settle for  80 base power, destroy the sht out of errything.
Earthquake: STAB, hig...why even.
Fire Fang:Deal with those troublesome Ice types.
Aqua Tail/Stone Edge:Type coverage just choose wich one is right for your team.
Moves fast, hits hard and it's hard to hit pretty deadly.
Hmmmm... Well I play this,

Garchomp: @Garchompite
-Double team
-Stone edge

  • Sand Storm/Crunch
  • Stone Edge/Iron Head/Iron Tail/Fire Fang
  • Dragon Rush/Dual Chop
  • Dig/Earthquake
    I use Sand Storm because of his ability. The second slot is coverage against Ice pokes. For the third... Dragon power! In last slot I use Dig, sorry :C

I just got the shiny Gabite from Benga in Floccesy Town, and I think it is really awesome. Here is a moveset.

Ability: Sand Veil
Nature: Adamant
Item: Smooth Rock

  • Outrage STAB, Coverage, Epicness. You will just slaughter everyone with that epic speed and attack before your opponent can react.
  • Earthquake STAB, Epicness. This Garchomp is very blood-thirsty.
  • Sandstorm Suits ability and item, this guy is ninja.
  • Rock Slide/Stone Edge/Iron Head Coverage. Between Rock Slide and Stone Edge, it is a choice of power and accuracy. Iron Head though has that attractive 100 accuracy, and can make the target flinch. I prefer Iron Head for that reason.

Outrage: STAB, high power, high accuracy, perfect move for dragons like this one
Earthquake: STAB,high pow...why even, its so obvious.

Fire Fang: More type coverage and deals with Ice types.

If you want this guy more annoying add Double Team.
