Best answer

I’ll give this question ago

Quagsire
Pros:
One weakness in grass
Ok bulk
Useful typing
Good Hidden Ability

Cons:
Slow
Lower base stats then Drednaw
Most of its best move are egg moves
No good coverage moves
No amazing attacking stat
It’s only good ability is it’s Hidden Ability

Drednaw
Pros:
Great Attack stat
Decent bulk
Good abilities
Good coverage
Higher base stat total

Cons:
Lots of weaknesses
Slow
Sp Defence is not too good
Not the best in important battles with its STAB moves ( e.g. gyms, rival battles)

Overall
I’d choose Drednaw as it is a superior Pokémon. Definitely go for Quagsire if it seems better for you but personally Drednaw is better in most aspects

What defines drednaw as superior?
As I said better stats and a better movepool
Between Quagsire and Drednaw it just is the better one
Thank you!
