    These are the three that i'm looking at. I considered Dragonite and Salamence but Garchomp outclasses them so yeah.

    Here are the movesets:


    Metagross @ Life Orb

    Nature: Admadant
    Ability: Clear Body

    - Meteor Mash
    - Bullet Punch
    - Earthquake
    - Zen Headbutt


    Tyranitar @ Life Orb

    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Sand Stream

    - Stone Edge
    - Earthquake
    - Crunch
    - Dragon Dance


    Garchomp @

    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Sand Veil

    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge
    - Dragon Claw

    Metagross for obvious reasons.

    Actually, its not so obvious... but whatever. I thought you would say Garchomp cuz of your username.

    They're all great movesets but I'd personally choose Metagross.
    I'd choose Metagross simply because Clear Body could be useful in battles and your moveset is relatively balanced in terms of covering it's weakness.

    If you do choose Tyranitar though, I'd maybe replace Stone Edge with Thunderbolt simply so you cover it's weakness to Water. Of course this is only a suggestion.

    Um. Nobody puts special attacks on Tyranitar. Its a waste of it's stregnths. Maybe ThunderPunch but definitely not thunderbolt.

    A supereffective thunderpunch does the same damage as Stoneedge.............

    i recommend ScarfTar. For some reason, nobody sees it coming when you OHKO their Starmies, Gengars and Lati@s, among others.

    Some people will use specials. Yes, Thunderpunch probably is a better choice but I'd personally have chosen Thunderbolt, that's just me though.

    32er TM87? I got TM32 :]

    Is this for 4th gen OU or Ubers?
    Cause Garchomp is banned in both 4th and 5th gen OU...
