    Definitely Dragonite.
    He has the appeal of being both badass and cute...his design is unique. Not many Pokemon can boast that.
    If I want a ferocious dragon, I would prefer Hydreigon or Garchomp to Salamence.

    Dragonite also is more useful to my style of battling, and he's got good HP and attack power. His DW ability is a gold mine, too.

    In the anime and manga, Dragonite is a lot more interesting too. It can fly around the world quickly, it saves sailors, it's intelligent and faithful, etc. Overall it's just a much more interesting Pokemon. Plus Dragonair and Dratini are adorable.

    They're both on par, but I guess whoever strikes first will win and thus, Salamence gets my vote.

    Not if one of them can take the hit and the other can't. Despite their similar typing, Dragonite and Salamence play completely differently.

    Imagine this scenario:

    Salamence uses Outrage

    Dragonite survives due to Multiscale and uses Dragon Dance, thus negating Mence's intimidate.

    New turn, Dragonite is now faster, it uses Roost.

    Repeat the process until Salamence confuses itself.

    DNite takes the momentum to DDance one more time, then fire off an Outrage of it's own. With the type advantage, the speed advantage and the Attack boost from DDance, Mence goes down.


    Another scenario:

    Salamence uses Draco Meteor

    Dragonite survives due to Multiscale and fires off it's own Draco Meteor.

    Mence should be KO'd due to its low defenses, but let's pretend it survives.

    Next turn:

    Dragonite uses Extremespeed, Mence is down.

    Dragonite won both cases. In fact, due to Multiscale's sheer awesomeness, Dragonite will defeat Salamence most of the time in this generation. Previous generations are a different story though.

    Dragonite of course. It has natural bulk over Salamence and Multiscale as it's DW ability, so it can take a hit from Salamence and then take it down with one hit simple.

    Salamence for its design, stats, ability, and movepool.

    Both have good features but I prefer Dragonite. Its moveset is better, I know Slamance can learn it too, but my favourite is outrage. Its not a good move in terms of the side effects but I still like it.

    Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig

    Which one of these powerful dragons do you prefer? Salamence because I like its design, ability and stats more than Dragonite's. I really love Salamence's epic design, it just looks a lot better than Dragonite's and Salamence's ability can be useful. Also, Dragonite is actually my fifth favourite psuedo legendary Pokemon. But I do really like Dragonite though.
    Who is more useful? Dragonite is slightly more useful than Salamence because it is a good HM slave and because of Multiscale. But Salamence is useful too since it has a useful ability and a good speed. And if you do have a Focus Sash, Salamence will be a tough threat.
    Who will win in a battle between the two? Hmmm... Salamence will probably go first because it is faster and with Intimidate, Dragonite will have to fix its attack stat before it attacks. So if Salamence gets the first move and uses Outrage, it can take down Dragonite with one shot. If Dragonite survives it can use a Dragon Dance to fix its attack stat increasing its speed along with it. So Salamence will be in trouble. But then again, Salamence can take down Dragonite with one Outrage. But of course, the story can be different with a Multiscale Dragonite. So I think they are equally matched.

    Dragonite is far more useful in battle and beats Salamence easily with Multiscale. But I've always liked Salamence more.

    Dragonite has a much better design than Salamence imo. It's gentle and cute appearance is not what you'd expect from a powerful dragon, which makes it a lot more unique than Salamence.
    To me Salamence is just your standard "RAWR I'm a fierce dragon!" stereotype, with some hollow Devilman reference thrown in. Pretty bland and uninteresting to be honest.

    Dragonite, basically because Salamence just seemed like a very cookie-cutter Dragon-type to me.

    Dragonite at least had that cute, cartoonish look. Also, when it was created in Gen 1, there weren't that many Dragon types.

    Dragonite is my favorite of these two. I never was much of a fan of Salamence and like Dragonite's design.

    It might just be nostalgia, but dragonite has always been my favorite dragon type. Also, dragonite once swept my friend's entire team.
