・Crunch or another option
Dracovish has the Ability Strong Jaw, allowing it to do extra damage from biting moves, and together with the Choice Scarf, Dracovish can attack fast and hard with Fishious Rend. The Jolly Nature is also selected to provide an extra Speed boost.
All together, with Strong Jaw, Fishious Rend's doubled power when hitting first, and maxed out Attack Stats will come together for a damaging power of 382. Even opponents taking non-super-effective damage will receive a massive hit from this attack.
|Earthquake||For those who want to handle Lanturn's Water Absorb Ability.|
|Low Kick||When you need to take down Tyranitar or Ferrothorn.|
|Dragon Rush||An alternate option for Draco Meteor. Its low accuracy is a bit concerning, but Dragon Rush benefits from the potential to cause flinching.|
By pushing Fishious Rend first and foremost, Dragovish is a highly capable physical attacker. Using the Choice Scarf will help ensure that Fishious Rend can hit first, enabling its massive damge boost. However, one of its main weaknesses is Dragapult, which can consistently outspeed it and foil its plans.
Dracovish has only two weaknesses, the Fairy and Dragon types. Taking advantages of these weaknesses can net a one-hit KO against Dracovish. Bringing in Dragapult in particular can allow you to hit quick with a Dragon move before Dracovish can say
Fishious Rend three times fast.
