    Okay, in the 3rd Generation of Pokemon, there are 4 "Psuedo Legendary" Pokemon. They are Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, and Metagross, each exclusive to different versions.

    Dragonite/Tyranitar = FireRed/LeafGreen
    Salamence/Metagross = Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald

    Which is the best out of these 4 titans? I've had a Dragonite, Tyranitar, and a Salamence, but my I'm too lazy to train my Metang right now.

    Anyways, they all seem pretty strong. Can someone tell me which one is the best? And the best moveset for them?
     
  2. I'd say Metagross
    Adamant Nature
    Meteor Mash
    Agility
    Explosion/Rock Slide
    Earthquake

    something like that

    EternalSmasherSceptile King of noobz

    FR/LG = Tryannitar
    R/S/E = Metagross

    pretty powerful pokemon if you give them the right moves, ^

    Metagross is a beast.

    Adamant Nature
    Meteor Mash
    Agility
    Earthquake
    Explosion/Shadow Ball

    Metagross is the best out of the four. Its the only one without a 4x weakness.

    TheMoonman Thinking......

    I only have one of those guys (Dragonite) but Metagross is definently a force. I'm also training a Pupitar right now, and it's gotten me off some tight jams.

    I don't think "Pseudo Legnedaries" is a good name for these guys. There's nothing legendary about them, except that they're strong, so I just call them the Big Four :)

    Hmm, I like Metagross(he's on my BF team on Emerald), but I also like Dragonite. Meta's better though since there's no 4x weakness.

    For the battle frontier I prefer salamence: DDmence for the weaker rounds & CBmence for the later rounds.

    For netbattle, I prefer tyranitar

    Salamence all the way. It's my all time favorite physical sweeper.

    Dragonite isn't nearly as used as the other three. I prefer Salamence as DDmence with no counters=winwin.

    My Dragonite on LG is probably the strongest Poké in my team.

    I've now got a Salamence on Emerald and at the moment, I'm thinking Dragonite's better.

    Haven't yet got a Beldum, nor have I been bothered to train my little Larvitar.

    Well, I thought Metang evolves at Lv55, but anyways, I trained my Metang a bit, and it evolved at Lv45.

    Anyways, Metagross rocks!!!!

    Also would this be a good Dragonite moveset?
    Brick Break
    Ice Beam
    Outrage
    Thunder/Thunderpunch

    This is better:

    Also would this be a good Dragonite moveset?
    Focus Punch
    Ice Beam
    Substitute
    Thuderbolt

    As Scepgatr said:
    FR/LG = Tryannitar
    R/S/E = Metagross

    Tyranitar i really like as a DD-tar and a choice band Metagross is really good it's even better in d/p since it can learn Thunder Punch witch is now switched to physical in d/p.

    larvitar005 I'm just myself...

    If Tyranitar it think there should be Rock Slide, Hyper Beam, Dragon dance(to cope up with it's slowness)

    I prefer Salamence over the others, as CBmence

    Don't use hyper beams...you can do more damage with other moves over 2 turns

    DDTar:
    Tyranitar @ Leftovers
    Dragon Dance
    Rock Slide
    Earthquake
    Taunt
     
  19. Rabid Jigglypuff

    Rabid Jigglypuff KARP KARP

    I like Dragonite and Metagross (Metagross is better)

    I Know Tyranitar is good from the sliver/crystal/gold days, so I think hes good too because I never felt like training one in 3rd Gen/
     
  20. BAM

    BAM Not the finger!!!

    I like Metagross and Salamece best out of the four.Tyranitar is a real forrce as well, but I like Metagross the best. He is my fav pokemon.

    Metagross@ Adamant

    Eq
    Meteor Mash
    Rest
    Sleep Talk The moveset that ChaosAngel gave you is a really good one to.
