I know a question like this was asked previously but that was before Tyrantrum received Rock Head giving him a large boost, and I wish to use this Pokemon in a different. So I hope this question can pass.
So, in VGC 2015 who would be a better Pokemon to use?
They are both strong Dragons who fit well with my team. I like the surprise factor that they offer. No expects either of the Pokemon to hit so hard. Either way I will make them a scarfer as neither of them are fast enough to keep up in the Metagame.
For future reference here is the rest of my team:
1.Mega Charizard Y
If you look at a team builder you would see that both Pokemon fit into the team very nicely.
These are the sets I would use:
Haxorus @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Rivalry/Mold Breaker/Unnerve
EVs: I'm still working on making this set
Rock Slide/ Earthquake
Night Slash/ Shadow Claw/ Brick Break
X-Scissor/ Poison Jab
As you can see Rotom is one of the Pokemon on my team, so Mold Breaker Earthquake could only be used while Salamence or Charizard is on the field. However it could hit opposing Rotom, and if you take all of it forms together, it is one of the most common Pokemon in VGC. However if I did not use Mold Breaker I am not sure which of the other 2 abilities I should use. Is one gender much more common in VGC? Also Lum and Sitrus berries along with various damage reducing berries are extremely common in VGC, so Unnerve could also be a great ability. His main move is Dragon Claw and the rest are coverage.
Tyrantrum @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Rock Head
EVs: Still working on this set too
Adamant Nature (He is like Mega-Tyranitar, just quick enough to be Adamant)
Thunder Fang/ Fire Fang/ Ice Fang/ Poison Fang
This guy is more straight foward. I usually Lock into Head smash (50%) and sometimes Earthquake (20%) or Dragon Claw (25%) most of the time. The last move is coverage but right now I am using Poison as it is fairy coverage, and badly poisons non-steel opponents almost every time it is used. Head Smash blast holes through so many Pokemon. Trainers usually focus on the other Pokemon because he is uncommon and by then it is already too late.
I really want another Dragon in that last slot. I have given thought to Garchomp or Landorus but it really opens up and ice weakness in my opinion.
So which do you think is better? All feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
