Good, as in Dragonite can make use of it's Sp. atk stat in ways such as smashing some of his physical wall counters, or more importantly, breaking Skarmory. Dragonite's Fire Blast is more than capable to kill it's number one nemesis, so.. yeah. His sp. atk stat IS good. Just not excellent, as in sweep using it.
..Salamence's Sp. atk is a lot higher, btw. Salamence>>>Dragonite for mixed sweeping.
Mmkay, the exploding tank set it is.
Metagross @ Occa Berry, Adamant
I love this Metagross of mine. Reflect is for team support and to certainly help it take EQs, it can also bash other Metagross with an EQ of it's own if the other isn't banded/has a Shuca berry. Explosion is.. well, to explode, as you know. EQ is for type coverage and is necesarry to counter some things, and Meteor Mash is there for good STAB.
Very simple set - and don't forget the Occa berry, it's necesarry to take fire moves from say, a Flamethrower Azelf.
What's Dragonite's Arch nemesis?
Luigi and Cudge are Invincible!
Yes, that's precisely what I was implying. Skarmory is the natural enemy to any physical dragon sweeper - he's immune to EQ, resists Dragon, and has the defenses to take a physical fire move - unless the pokemon had used Swords Dance previously. Skarmory can whirlwind out the pokemon that just stat'd up, and then roost off the damage.
Only SD Garchomp and a dragon with a special fire move pose a threat. Skarmory's that good. Bronzong is in a similar predicament since he's immune to EQ and resists ground, but lacks a recovery move outside of the useless rest. He has higher Sp. def though, and can use something like Hypnosis to disable the sweeper.
A move doesn't count as an arch nemesis, Strype. :P It's the pokemon that can learn the move and use it effectively. ..Which you listed, ofcourse.
Without Ice Shard, Mamo and Weavile can't do much once they'd Dragon Danced, you know. It's a 2HKO. Dragonite can run Sp. def EVs and a Yache, making the OHKO not possible and the enemy to be 2HKO'd or 3HKO'd. Suicune, Cresselia, and Vaporeon can't do anything but Ice Beam though. Starmie can Psychic, but.. meh. None of the pokes you listed are faster than D-nite without a boost after a DD, meaning they have to get in unscaved on the switch or fodder KO.
You know there is a REASON why I still run DD nite, I was also being a bit of an ass...
But a good ice move, is usually the bane of my existence, specialy since I dont run yache
Any tree can drop a cherubi, i'll drop a freakin lunatone
