    @ Chesto Berry
    Trait: Multiscale
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 36 Def / 216 Spe or 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpAtk)
    - Dragon Dance
    - Dragon Claw
    - Rest
    - Fire Punch

    Great set but I can see why it doesn't get used much. With the threat of (p)hazers present, this set is a one time use. But boy, when it works, it simply wrecks. Without being scared of status or not being able to Roost Multiscale back, I'm usually able to DD three turns in a row before healing. By that point, anything not named Heatran dies by simply being in Dragonite's presence. The set requires support yes, but treat it well and your returns will be phenomenal.

    I like to run the first EV spread for additional bulk. The speed drop doesn't really bother me as at +1, Dragonite is still able to outrun positive natured base 120 Pokemon. And since this set isn't meant to attack after just one boost, investing in bulk over speed that you'll gain back eventually is simply more practical.
