Ray vs Sally who gets my dust


#1

Goal is to duo Giratina-O and need one more on the team.
Ray 97 14-15-15
Vs
Salamance 100 15-15-15
Rare candy is not a issue but I only have 159000 stardust total.
Which would you power up?
I have a few maxed Rayquazas already, no salamance though.
Looking to battle immediately so saving up doesn’t need not apply here


#2

The ideal choice would be Ray, as even with imperfect attack it trumps Salamence with the same moveset. It is a stronger candidate for a duo run no doubt.

Realistically though, the difference will probably be about 5-10 seconds at most, though that COULD be the difference between a win and a loss. Salamence is a fine choice, though I feel like another Ray will never hurt.


#3

Ray beats it as that one missing IV wont change anything in 99.99% of all situations when compared to a 100% Rayquaza thanks to its gargantuan attack


#4

Ray still comes out ahead but damn if a hundo Salamence isn’t radical. They’re both so similar in performance you won’t notice a difference. I’d do both eventually and toss a coin to see which one to do now.


#5

Right! Hundo salamance is spicy


#6

Ray hits a higher breakpoint so there is a decent difference between the two pretty much a whole point of DPS.

Ray vs 15 attack Ray only difference is 1 point of damage on outrage. So you probably lose a max of 3 total damage in the fight by only having 14 attack.


#7

Given the stardust you’re lacking - can you even max either? Is the Salamance already a higher level (30-35)? That might be the difference-maker.

Would max both eventually though - and as others have said at level 40 the Ray will be stronger but damn a perfect Salamance (assuming with Outrage) is a beautiful thing.


#8

The 100% Salamance with outrage is lvl 18
Ray is level 20 so both could not be maxed out so soon.


#9

Ya, would say the Rayquaza then to get the best 6th member of your team as good as possible.
