I have both a Haxorus and a Dragonite. One of them is going on my team because for over 10 years I've had a long-standing tradition of always having a Dragon-type on my team...but which one? What are the advantages and disadvantages to using each? Here are some, but if you guys could point some more out...

Dragonite
Pros:
-Better overall bulk than Haxorus, especially with Multiscale
-Better movepool gives a wider range of options
-Often unpredictable until half the opponent's team has been taken out
-Immune to Ground moves
Cons:
-Often a status magnet, at least in my experience
-Dat 4x ice weakness
-Weak to Rock moves


Haxorus
Pros:
-Attack stat that almost catches up to Rayquaza's makes Haxorus so powerful that it can OHKO even some opponents who resist his attacks, particularly with boosts
-Can learn both Dragon Dance and Swords Dance
-HE HAS AN AXE ON HIS FACE.
-Great pure Dragon typing
-Mold Breaker means he can Earthquake foes like Bronzong that have Levitate
-Decent physical attacking movepool can keep opponents guessing until it's too late
-Did I mention the axe on his face?
Cons:
-No secondary STAB
-Average defences mean that a super-effective hit will likely be the last one Haxorus takes before fainting

I played with both... Haxorus vs dragonite
If you am attacking nature and choice item it it can outrun anything except ice shard..
But then theres D.nite a pokemon who has been outshines since 3rd gen by salmence who is overall a better flying/dragon then the lovable Titan.. If I was you I'll go withthe 5th gen and wreak havoc with it

i think it's going to depend on the rest of your team whether you need a suicide-ish sweeper like hax, or something that can take hits like d-nite, in general though d-nite has a lot more weaknesses but will still be able to take an unboosted SE hit providing a clean entry with multiscale, and with a mixed set would be able to hit most things for at least neutral damage, plus the fact that you could run either a special or physical set also, will make people a bit more cautious, though i think most people still run a dd set?

hax is fun because after a dragon dance can sweep entire teams with outrage brick break and night slash, or dual chop if you don't like the negatives of outrage, while it only has one type, it also only has a 2x weakness to ice, and a 2x to dragon, while keeping a bunch of resistances, if you're worried about it's bulk, setting up dual screens to set up a sweep might help out, or just run a steel type, like the aforementioned bronzong to gyroball ice pokemon, and if i'm not mistaken can run dual screens as well

@Akai its all a matter of preference.. I suggest running a truobleshooting team with both (not in the same team of coarse) unil you find a niche you like..
on a more personal level when this Gen came out you obviously run all Gen V team until you knoe... I found that I like using the suicide Hax..Adamant or Jolly .

Mister Ron so glad to have piqued an interest. as mentioned above yeah we're looking to expand and keep things WiFi if possible...
BTW any and all new trainers we seem to lack momentum in the PO department so if you happen to not have WiFi but are battle ready on PO please also include your user name there...

I also would like to add
Have you both read our rules as to what constitutes activity... Im not myself so active but I am keeping my head into the Events side of my games so I can at least make that effort to obtain hte US end of things...
Oh and I just got Mass Effect3 for my Bday so im into that hardcore ATM..

post your FC you guys and do the best you can to ...earn a Premier grade ..and

Mr420 Over and Out

I prefer Dnight because he's a boss and super tanky and can smack the sh!t out of stuff at the same time.

Sup Empire, my friend said he'd give me his DS so I'm back in business. By the end of the weekend I'll be working on a new team and starting on it. Akai I'll search and see if I have any of your mons. What was your OT?

yaoo what's the word peepuls? so i checked out serebii's news, and apparently BWdeuce isn't a third version, but something of a sequel, maybe a direct one? not sure how the story line will progress, maybe like FR/LG where the previous hero is the champ? dunno, but playasia is already taking preorders for the japanese vers. haven't decided if i'll pick it up yet

I've already stated I think that it's a direct sequel with a new storyline and getting Keldeo unlocks more game features or did I can't remember!!

Hello all yeah I'm still here when I remember to actually get on my laptop and not spend my whole Spring Break playing games and forgetting about my homework!

Akai I say Dragonite cause Haxorus is ugly as hell and I don't like it and Dragonite is pwnage
