Who do you think the best of the 3 is?
Dragonite, Tyranitar, or Salamence? Discuss

I like all three, but Salamance for me. Intimidate is really awesome and after a dragon dance you better watch out.

One question though. Where are the other pseudo legends? I would have voted for Garchomp. It is great.

I agree Salamence with it's Intimidate ability and Dragon Dance is a good combo. I am I aware I forgot about Garchomp but nobody adds him into the mix so I just decided to pick the old fashioned ones if you don't mind. I prefer Dragonite over the 3. They are all very powerful but I gotta give it to Dragonite.

Dragonite is one of my favorite pokemon, so him. But what about Metagross?

Tyranitar has a position on my "Favorite Pokemon list"

So I'll choose him.

Well... these 3 are most used in competitive battling of all pseudo legendaries so maybe that's why.

Anyways, Dragonite for me. Multiscale one to be exact =D
Moxie Salamance is also pretty cool but I haven't been using Salamance much... :/
And Tyraniar is the last one... it's vulnerable to EQ, that's why =D

I like all 3 Pokemon, but I'm going with Salamence because of the raw power and speed it has in battle.

This poll didn't say it was all pseudo-legendaries, just these three. No reason to bring the others into it you guys. o_O

I like Tyranitar the best, except I try not to think about how short it is. It's just super cool other than that!

Dragonite easily. Not really sure why, I've just always loved the Dratini line since Gen. I.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

Tyrannitar would be my choice, followed closely by Dragonite and lastly Salamence.

The winner is clearly Haxorus.
I mean who can disagree with that?

Of the three you listed, I personally like Salamance the best,though Tyranitr comes to close second.
Competitively however, Tyranitar wins by landslide.

Overall, I like the Dragonite evolutionary line the best, but speaking about just those three Pokemon alone, I'd have to say Tyrannitar. I love its uniqueness in that it's not a Dragon-type at all, unlike most pseudo legendaries. It just screams power to me, whereas Dragonite can look a little on the fluffy and cute side

I like all three, but the only one I ever used was Dragonite.

I just like Dragonite's design the best of the three and one of my fave characters has one in the anime (Iris).

Dragonite, because I can do more than just spam attacks with it which leads to fun times in infuriating the opponent with constant stalling lol.

Gotta love the high life.

I'm a Salamence lover. It's design was the best for me out of those three, a blue dragon with red stripes and wings? You're awesome,buddy :3. To be honest I've never used him but he seems the most appealing to me and I like him better than Dragonite since I'm more of a person who focuses on speed and attack.

Tyranitar was a 'meh' for me since I'm not very interested in Rock Pokemon nowadays and also I dislike how he's slow and has several weaknesses.

I can't ever recall using Salamence, whereas I have used the other two. While I really like Tyranitar, Sand Stream does get on my nerves as it drags out the length of the battle, and usually does damage to the rest of my team when I have to switch out. I've always liked Dragonite, and since it was one of the original Dragon Pokemon, it's my favorite of the three.

Hm...I dunno. This one's tough. Outta the three, I've only trained Salamence. But Tyranitar has the type advantage over the two...Salamence is a bit fragile, and Dragonite isn't as offensively powerful...compared to the two, anyways.

But I like Dragonite design, so I'm going with that choice. Looking at it, puts you in da mind of Dragon Tales. LOL Remember dat show?

EDIT: Oh, wait...I forgot about Tyranitar Dark/Rock typing. And since Dragonite can use Focus Blast, hell it can even use Brick Break...Those moves could be helpful against tryin' to take out a Tyranitar. :p

Tyranitar. Mainly because of its cool typing and design, but also because it was the only one of the three that I managed to raise from its Stage I critter. The others I never bothered with (Salamence) or just gave up because it was too hard (poor Dragonite). But, even still, the Dragon/Flying type is kinda boring for me, to be honest. If Metagross/Garchomp/Hydreigon were in this poll, it would become a lot harder, but limited to those three, Tyranitar takes this in a cakewalk.

Tyranitar. Not only does it sport a unique typing (one of my favourites -- Dark), but it also can learn an abundance of poweful moves. I've currently raised 2 Larvitars to Tyranitars, one on my White and one on my Black 2, but Mac, also traded me a Shiny Tyranitar a little gift, which I love to bits. So...yeah, it's Tyranitar for me.

However, if Hydreigon was's be tough, because I also have it on my current B2 team. Hmmm!

This is a tough one, but Tyranitar has always been one of my favorites. His design roars "strength" and he has the competitive stats and ability to back it up.
