    Dragonite ftw. I don't care what anybody says, Dragonite will always be my favorite dragon.

    Who would win in a battle?

    Let's look into it. Salamence has higher Speed, whereas Dragonite has more bulk. That's the basic statement.

    Most of the time, Salamence would just outright rip Dragonite with Outrage. 120 power augmented by STAB goes to 180. And with the "super effective" value factored in, it rockets to a fearsome 360 power. Coming off Salamence's huge Attack stat (base 135, max 405 at Lv.100), it's over for Dragonite.

    In other cases, if Salamence is equipped with a Focus Sash, it can use Dragon Dance to boost its Attack and Speed, and then tear Dragonite to shreds with Outrage or Dragon Claw.

    Specs Salamence can also slam Dragonite with a heavy Draco Meteor. With previous factors skyrocketing it to 420 power, and coming off its already high, Specs-bossted Sp. Attack, even a Haban Berry might not save the bulky dragon.

    That's not to say Dragonite has no chance of winning. If equipped with a Haban Berry or a Sash, it can survive an unboosted onslaught, Dragon Dance, and hit back with its own Outrage. Dragonite has a lot of Attack, like Salamence (base 134, max 403 at Lv.100), so with Dragon Dance, it'll be overkill, really.

    A Scarfed Dragonite can also be a nasty surprise for the prominent OU monster. It'll go in with Outrage/Draco Meteor or dance like a dragon (LOL), but before it can do anything, it'll get slammed with a speedy Outrage/Draco Meteor, and die without item support.

    In general, Salamence wins, but Dragonite definitely stands a chance in battle.

    If Dragonite is holding a Haban Berry, Salamence is holding a Yache Berry and Intimidate is not being factored in....
    Salamence used Outrage. Dragonite barely survived! Dragonite used Ice Punch. Salamence barely surived!
    Dragonite used Extremespeed. Salamence fainted!

    Cool story bro, but you're making assumptions, using a few examples and taking the whole luck factor out of it. Critical hits happen, sometimes A LOT, you can't take that away. Also not everyone uses standard Smogon sets.

    No contest for me. Salamence is the winner. It's menacing, true to it's name, but has a certain dignity to it. I know this is a true dragon, with his epic design. Even when not trained to his full potential, he is quite amazing!

    On the other hand. Dragonite is so...ugly. ._. There was Dratini, a cute little baby. And then there was Dragonair, the most graceful and beautful Dragon Pokemon ever. And when it evolved for the first time...I was like "what the hell is that", only without "the hell" since I was 13 at the time. D: Dragonair should have gotten an evolution as beutiful as it. Instead of this ugly...goofy cutesy-poo "dragon". Can we say "tastes like diabetes"?
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Salamence. Looks more epic to me, and is much more powerful. Dragonite has better balance and better defenses, but the looks let it down. I never liked it, and I was happy with Kingdra in Gen 2, and then Salamence in Gen 3, both much cooler Dragon Pokémon.

    Garchomp Salamence. Its design is way better. It looks more menacing and its speed and attack are high. Plus, its movepool is so much better. (Hydro Pump as an egg move, people)

    Salamence!!Dragonite is too soft.Dragons should show aggresion and Salamence fits it.Even its ability(Intimidate)speaks for it.

    My choice is Salamance.

    First of all, his design is cooler. For a pseudo-legendary, Dragonite looks kinda too... cute.


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?
