Salamence is outclassed as a special attacker by [email protected] and Hydreigon. If you've looked at Salamence's base stats, it clearly favors physical attacking (it has 135 Attack and 110 Special Attack; while its Special Attack is good as well, Salamence still favors physical attacking, though it can go mixed) and it also has Moxie to accumulate Attack boosts as it KOs opponents:
-Dragon Claw
-Fire Blast/Aqua Tail
Nature: Naive/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Moxie

Salamence also can take its high Attack and Speed to new levels with Dragon Dance:
-Dragon Dance
-Fire Blast/Hydro Pump
Nature: Naive
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry

As mentioned previously, Salamence can go mixed:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
Nature: Naive
EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe
Item: Life Orb
