What's with Gyarados and its many legacy dragon movesets?


#1

Almost all dragon moves that Gyarados has ever had are now all legacy: dragon breath, dragon tail, twister, dragon pulse (outrage is the exception I think).

Any reason why Niantic would do this?


#2

Maybe because it’s not a dragon type pokémon. Maybe so it can finally be the strongest water pokémon (since it’s the hardest to evolve). dragon type moves don’t do STAB damage with Gyarados. I find it much better with the new moves.


#3

That exactly a reason:

now i love them again (cant believe, dint throw away, after new system come :rofl: )


#4

Gyarados with a double water moveset is definitely better and has been long awaited, but just curious why Niantic would add dragon moves for him… :thinking: Could be coincidence
