Which should I use?

Kyurem @ Life Orb
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Ice Beam
- Earth Power
- Flash Cannon


Dragonite @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Dragon Pulse
- Focus Blast
- Fire Blast

Replace Flash Cannon with Hidden Power [Fire]. Make Kyurem Timid and Give it 252 Spe instead of HP. :P
And for Dragonite replace Focus Blast with STAB Hurricane. Fire Blast is better at taking out Ice types

oh man well lets take a look I will not be modifying anything I'm choosing based on what you gave us


In are first round we will be comparing typing

C'mon its a sweep D-man's got it locked down Kyurem is an ice-dragon... need I say more? (and lets say you did splice it you still have the worst type of all time to deal with)

moveset wise nah I'm not liking Kyurem, It's not a team player! all those moves are to cover up its own VERY exposed hide. And again speed comes in but pff wow could Kyurem get sweeped, A Jolly Garchomp could put that thjng to sleep so fast especially again with life orb. Personally I think life orb should only be used on speedy mixed or reg. sweepers to put that extra power in there to make sure they really go down

I meanI'm digging Pressure and Roost but thats about it and I already discussed Dragonite for you in your previous questionso you know all the facts there I mean base stats wise they're pretty matched but overall I'm gonna go ahead and give this one to dragonite

(Now splicing along with a new moveset now thats a different story that I could give you in the comments if you would like)
You shouod still just stick with a Goat for OU freakin wreck them
"OU the House that Goat built"

I think Kyurem-Black performs much better than Dragonite in OU. :P

I mean, look at their usage differences:

 > | 37   | Kyurem-Black       |  5.08207% | 170155 |  5.272% | 127251 |  5.128% |

>  | 79   | Dragonite          |  1.12813% | 140096 |  4.340% | 100261 |  4.040% |

Btw, Kyurem-B is usually used as a fast mixed sweeper with Fusion Bolt, but Ed doesn't want 2 mixed sweepers on his team. And a Life Orb is common on offensive Pokémon in general. :P
Ik! KB is an amazing Life orb choice and totally takes the cake when it comes to this. Although personally I'm also allergic to ice types lol. I just can't pretend like they're not bad and using one feels like a violation of that principle.
Ice type itself isn't bad, game freak just make a Lot of slow, defensive Ice types when Ice is a great offensive type and a Phenomenal coverage type. :P

Weavile, Kyurem-B & W, Alolan Ninetails, and Cloyster are probably the only good Ice Types. :P
