PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Dragon Tail + Draco Meteor & Fire Blast

Dragon Tail provides average damage and slightly above-average energy generation that Salamence needs for its expensive moves, as well as solid neutral coverage. Draco Meteor is the strongest move that Salamence can muster, offering very solid damage off of its high attack stat and a relatively low energy cost, but it also drops its attack by 2 stages, leaving Salamence severely weakened after 1-2 uses. Fire Blast rounds out the coverage, helping with Steel and Fairy Types that would otherwise wall this set.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 0 / 5

Salamence is weighted towards attack and has a poor PvP moveset, leaving it unviable in the Great League.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

While not as bad off, Salamence is still a poor pick for the Ultra League

Master League: 0 / 5

Again: Salamence is just not a PvP Pokemon. Even when fully unbound in the Master League, its slow moves do it no favors.
