My brother and I are having a debate over who's Dragon is better. he thinks mine is Cheap. I say otherwise.

Salamence(M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Intimidate
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 160 Spd/ 88 HP
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- Fire Fang
- Crunch

note: he picked the Nature, Trait; and Moveset. I just helped with the EVs cuz he's a total noob.

or mine:
Dragonite(M) @ Yache Berry
Trait: Multiscale
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Dragon Claw
- Fire Punch
- ExtremeSpeed
- Roost

for the record, mine always wins unless he has laid SR and I fail to remove it before the two square off.

Your bro isn't using Salamence right, scarfed Moxmence is the way to go
I've told him this. but his Sally is Jolly Natured so its Atk stat sits at 383 or so, my D-Nite is 403. he seems to think Intimidate hurts me more haha
Well, with intimidate d-nite's atk becomes 302, which is considerably less, but it really depends on the circumstances.
But he likes Spikes put usually neglects SR. so Even at 303 Atk, Multiscale allows me 2 303 Atk STAB Dragon Claws for x2 damage, versus his one 383 Atk STAB 120 Outrage for x2 damage, then dmg/2 (Multiscale)

THANK YOU!!! now if it was inner Focus D-nite i know it'd be different, but abilities count ;)
Did you count the Intimidate factor?
and you have to consider if Stealth Rocks are in as well
Yes I counted all the factors.
He loses if stealth rock is in tough
