Default DragonBreath Vs. DragonClaw

I need to know something. Which is better, Dragon Breath or Dragon Claw?? I have a Salamence that is going to be on my Team but I need to know which is better or which one should he know more. The thing is Dragon Breath has 100% accuracy and a chance of paralizing the opponent but his power is only 60. Dragon Claw has 80 power and 100% accuracy but has no good effect. So can some1 plz help my delima.

I would go with Dragon Claw. Paralization is useless to me. It only paralizes sometimes. Dragon Claw is stronger.

Give me a break, Dragonbreath is way better than Dragon Claw. It has a 30% chance of paralysis which is very good and having the opponent paralyzed helps you alot. I'd go with DragonBreath.

Uhh why not have both? 0_0 Anyway for X's speech those are all the reasons for Dragon Breath. Besides Dragon Claw only does twenty more hp damage.

That dilemma came up with my Salamence but I chose Dragon Claw because it does more damage to the opponent.

Claw: 80 power, better for SWEEPERs. Eg: Salamence

Breath: 30% PAR is VERY good, used for things that try NOT to die, like PARATTRACTION or something like that, but really quite useless without the STAB. (Since Body slam has more power, but then it runs off the atk stat)

YeH... it really depends which mon you are using and your strategy, but personally, I'd use Dbreath for annoyance... not that bad of base attk and PRZ is always a plus... especially since it is 30% chance. That is very high compared to some other attacks that have status inflicters to them (eg. FT w/ 10% chance burn.) Thus, I'd go with Dragon Breath.
