Hydro Pump Salamence - any use?


#1

Basically the title. Is there any use for Salamence with Hydro Pump?


#2

If there are a lot of people liking golems in your neighbourhood then it has some use to troll them, but I would use Draco Meteor or fire blast if there are ice types


#3

Go with draco meteor.


#4

Only as a surprise defender or for Golem/Rhydon raids that only have ground/water attacks, otherwise stick with Draco Meteor
But Dragonite is better anyways, and Garchomp is comming closer and closer (hoping for a DB/DT and Outrage movepool)


#5

HP Salamence is pretty much like SB Groudon.


#6

Not really. As a defender its kind of a waste of stardust. As an attacker, you would have far better results with Kyogre, Gyarados or Vaporeon (in that order from best to less best…).


#7

I want it to get Dragon Rush to be honest. Something like a Dragon type Surf or Heavy Slam.


#8

Outrage would still be better
Maybe a 70 base power 3-bar charge move?
Guess thats too much


#9

Draco meteor over hp for sure. The main reason to use salamence at all is Draco. If he got sky attack that would be amazing


#10

If there was a heavy slam/avalanche/sky attack grade dragon charge type move itd just be too powerful though lol


#11

Outrage is superior than what you’ve mentioned as far as I remember


#12

I feel like Niantic’s making all the gen 1 pokemon the best pokemon other than legendaries.
