    Default Kingdra vs Gyarados

    Hey guys, this is my first thread and I thought I'd start it with a vs. Alright so we have the the two undersea dragons. Ironically the more dragon looking one is part flying. Kingdra features balanced stats and a great movepool, well Gyarados features high attack and two great abilities. Each one has the same bst. Which do you like better? Who has the better design? Who would win in a fight.


    Personally I love Kingdra, but I have to many good memories of shredding my competitive opponents with Gyarados, so it gets my vote.

    Kingdra, it's because he has only 1 weakness, and what you said about him.

    Kingdra by a mile. I don't like Gyarados. Besides, Kingdra's such an absolute beast under rain that they had to install a complex Drizzle ban in part to deal with it.

    Kingdra! I really like both, but Kingdra is one my utmost favourites. It has a really cool typing and design. Gyarados is good, too, but overall I just like Kingdra much more.

    Gyarados has the better design and suits me better, so yeah, Gyara wins this one ;)

    Gyarados wins this one, and via a couple of different ways. If it's Intimidate Gyarados, then it's definitely gg for Kingdra. This essentially allowed Gyara to set up a free sub in Kingdra's face, or perhaps set up Dragon Dance, one or the other. And then it can proceed to EQ/Bounce or whatever in Kingdra's face until it gets KO'd. There's really not much Kingdra can do against Gyara other than Outrage, in which it'll be a fairly weak attack after Intimidate takes effect.

    Kingdra's supposed to just sit there and let Gyara do anything it wants? How about setting up a Rain Dance to double its speed (not that it isn't already 14 points faster than Gyarados already.) Or just use Draco Meteor. Fun fact: a specially offensive Kingdra with Choice Specs using Draco Meteor will OHKO offensive Gyarados 100% of the time. (It does 101.81%-119.94%)

    I suppose you're right about that, as I forgot about Draco Meteor. I was only accounting for it's STABs, like Waterfall and Outrage, and thought that Kingdra was more or less helpless. When you take into accounts Specs Kingdra, then it's a definitely challenge for Offensive Gyara, but Resttalk Gyarados (idk, people use that? It shows up as a set so I'm assuming so, I don't play OU as much, so...) might be able to wear down Kingdra thanks to the added bulk.

    240+ SpA Choice Specs Kingdra Draco Meteor vs. 248 HP / 8 SpD Gyarados: 297-351 (75.57 - 89.31%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    So it can just rest off the damage and stall it from there, I think that's the only way Gyara is able to "win" against Specs Kingdra.
