No. Outrage is an inferior move on DDTar because it doesn't get STAB and it locks Ttar in. Crunch and Stone Edge get STAB and already hit most of the OU Dragons. Mence in pummeled by STone Edge and Latias dies to Crunch. The last slot should generally be used so Ttar can attack something that walls the Dark/Rock combonation. Fire Punch is only used on Babari Tar and Aqua Tail hits most Bulky Grounds.
Hope this helps.
^Not to mention that Outrage and Crunch (and Stone Edge with accuracy factored in) hit for the same base damage, which indeed makes this choice a matter of coverage and getting locked in instead of a matter of how much damage Outrage does.
for a sandstorm team, is hippowdon a must? I was thinking of leading with a stealth rock gliscor instead of hippowdon, in fact, I don't plan on using it at all. Can a sandstorm team still work that way?
Well, You actually got really lucky there if this was from Bebe since three perfect IVs is incredibly rare (1/32764, IIRC). I think that, with 31 HP, you should be ok, but if you want to then you could always breed to make the Sp. Def perfect. You have a pretty good Pokémon thereI'm very new to competitive play, so I just wanted to know if these IVs are good enough for a future trap-passer Umbreon. The Eevee I got from Bebe have the following IVs:
Sp. Atk 22
Sp. Def 22
Attack and Sp. Atk aren't that great but I won't be needing them anyway. What about SP. Def?
You could even keep soft resetting for better IVs if you want. I did that to get a perfect Jolteon.

I should've asked my question differently. I plan on using tyranitar, I was wondering if I need BOTH for OU?
