If my Salamence were Jolly, what would be the best moveset for it? I decided on Thunder and Surf for type coverage, since if I take those out I have no electric and no water moves. If I replace Thunder with Substitute and Surf with Superpower, should I move some moves around to compensate or am I not at a glaring disadvantage? Sorry for the double spacing, I actually pasted this from Wordpad. Thanks for all the help, PlatinumDude, you've been helping me SO much, I'm really grateful!
Go for Choice Scarf MoxieMence if you intend on going full physical:
-Dragon Claw
-Aqua Tail
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Moxie

If you're using Substitute on Dragonite, the nature should be Jolly and the EV spread should be 252 HP/72 Def/60 SDef/124 Spe. But since you may have a sandstorm ongoing thanks to Tyranitar, Sub isn't recommended, as Dragonite's Lefties recovery will be cancelled via sandstorm and the weather will ruin Multiscale regardless (unless Dragonite was at full health between turns).
