As I’m sure you all know, maxing out one Rayquaza, let alone a team of six (or even a B team) takes an exorbitant amount of rare candies and tons of star dust too.
Looking ahead, we’re due to get two more legendary dragons in the fifth gen. We also have a pretty competitive Dragon typing in general, with Salamence, Dragonite, Palkia and more competing for a spot with Rayquaza on raid teams.
It is my understanding that Rayquaza is still pretty much the best Dragon in the game, but in your guys’ opinions, is the distance between itself and say, Salamence, worth the massive investment?
And how safe will said investment be?
Zekrom and Reshiram’s best attacking stats (Attack and Special Attack respectively) match up equally to Rayquaza’s Attack stat in mainstream Pokémon. That said, they’re also legendaries and would require the same investment to be maxed like Rayquaza. But they’re also still Dragons who have access to Outrage and Dragon Tail which could theoretically match Rayquaza’s DPS, and could theoretically slightly outdo it in TDO due to being slightly bulkier.
