    Default Salamence vs. Hydreigon

    VS.


    Salamence, one of Gen III's Pseudo-Legendaries sometimes called Dragonite's Expy. Recently sent to the Uber tier by Smogon but whether or not it will stay there is yet to be seen.

    Hydreigon, Gen V's Pseudo-Legendary and the only Special-oriented one. Its also the only Dragon Pseudo Legendary to not have double weakness to ice.

    Who do you like more?
    Who would win in a battle?
    Who is more useful.

    Note that there is no way of knowing the answer to the last 2 questions but I put them there just for the sake of tradition.

    Personally, I like Salamence much more. It looks so much cooler than Hydreigon. It also has Dragon Dance which Hydreigon doesn't have, IIRC. Hydreigon looks too wierd for me.

    Who do you like more?
    Can't choose. Leaning towards Sazandra design wise because it has sock puppets :).

    Who would win in a battle?
    They're almost evenly matched statistic-wise, but Salamence would win. Salamence's 135 ATK to Sazandra's 90 DEF, and Sazandra's 125 SPATK to Salamence's 80 SPDEF. But, like you said, Salamence may have the upper hand because of DragonDance and a SPD stat 2pts higher than Sazandra (small difference, but yeah). Oh, and a big point here is that most of Sazandra's STAB Dragon movepool is Physical.. whereas Sazandra aces in SPATK.

    Who is more useful?
    Personally, I haven't used Salamence that much. Nor have I used Sazandra. But looking at their near-even stats, movepools, and typings, I think Salamence would be more useful to me. But I do like Sazandra's typing, which gives 6 resistances and 2 immunities.

    Add a poll?

    EDIT: I'm just gonna vote Sazandra in the hope that it will be better than expected. I feel like Sazandra's typing is what pops out to me the most, while Salamence's has already been done by Dragonite.

    Who do you like more? I really can't decide between the two. I think, at the moment, I'm leaning towards Salamence as I just went onto its Bulbapedia page and its artwork looks very cool.

    Who would win in a battle? As /Zer0 has already said, it seems they're almost evenly matched; though I think Sazandra could steal a win out from under Salamence; as (my memory may not be spot on here) the dragon moves available to Salamence don't have as high a damage as Sazandra's Dragon Pulse would have (excluding bred and tutored moves).

    Who is more useful? Salamence. I always find physical orientated Pokémon to be more versatile; though Sazandra's typing could even that out.

    In conclusion, they're more or less equals, but I've voted Salamence purely because I prefer it's design. Although Sazandra's prevos are much cooler than Bagon and Shelgon. Level 64 for final evolution? Wow.

    Salamence here. He's my favorite Pseudo-Legendary. Sazandra is really cool, with a great Type Combination, and I like how it's Special-based, but I still prefer Salamence because he's a total beast in design and sheer power.
    lol I got bored.

    For now, I'm going to choose Salamence as I've actually used one. Haven't gotten a chance to play with Sazandra so this might change. Truth be told, I've sort of neglected my Salamence in favor of Dragonite (my favorite pseudo thus far), but the few times I've used him, he's been excellent.

    Salamence for me. Sazandra is a lot weird for my tastes.

    Sazandra has a cool colour scheme, sweet feathers and a type everybody's wanted for ages. It's also a hydra. I choose Sazandra.

    Sazandra for me. Salamence is a badass beast, but the Dark Dragon looks even more badass (how this was possible I don't know. GF is made up of miracle workers.) Even though I've yet to use Sazandra, I haven't used Salamence since Ruby.

    Yeah sure, Dark/Dragon sounds incredibly epic. But it's design is such a pain in the bum. I prefer the good ol', ass kicking, flying dragon with a much more awesome design.

    Sazandra's preevolutions look...Horrible. That's putting it lightly.


    And Salamence deserves to go where it's gotten :') The Bagon has it's chance to fly. Beautiful.

    I know what Salamence is like, and he can be both physical or special.

    Hydra > everything. It could be the worst combination ever of pokemon types, and I'd still pick it because it is a Hydra.
