Either ability is viable on Salamence.
A (p)hazer might seem ideal on the team, though I'm not sure who I can replace:
EVs: 252 HP/232 Def/24 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell
Celebi (though those things are very hard to find):
-Perish Song/Thunder Wave/Stealth Rock
EVs: 252 HP/232 SDef/24 Spe
I guess Milotic's dragon tail is the closest thing I have to (p)hazing. Maybe DD Salamence can counter Gallade at +1 Speed by OHKOing it before it can use Substitute (unless substitute has priority?!!)
Anyway I'm breeding a Salamence and got one with good IVs except for 8 in HP. Is that horrendous? Should I raise it? How important is HP for DD Salamence?
