Why is everyone saying Dragon/Electric is so much more original than Dragon/Fairy? We have two Dragon/Electric types... Anyway, this is cool. I like the real one more, due to it's typing (Fairy is my second favorite type), changes (By which I mean design, stats and Ability) and overall hugability, but this is awesome too.
Dammit Altaria, why can't you get an Electric-type move, or some sort of ability like Pixilate to abuse a STAB Electric-type Hyper Voice?
Altaria @ Altarite
Ability: Volt Absorb / Electrorate (That's what I'd call the ability if it had it)
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid / Modest Nature
- Draco Meteor / Dragon Pulse
- Thunderbolt / Hyper Voice
- Fire Blast
- Roost / Agility
Altaria can run a surprisingly dangerous set with its new Mega Evolution. The combination of Dragon, Electric, and Fire-type attacks gives Altaria perfect neutral coverage, and the option to restore HP with Roost or set up with Agility is also excellent. Draco Meteor is best used on the set with Roost, as having an Attack that lowers its stats is counterproductive to the stat boosting bonus of Agility. If Agility is being used. run Dragon Pulse instead. Thunderbolt and Hyper Voice are choices for a secondary Electric-type STAB. Hyper Voice hits much harder thanks to Electrorate giving it a boost, as well as STAB, but Thunderbolt is to be used if Electrorate does not exist. Fire Blast rounds out Altaria's coverage by hitting Pokemon such as Magenzone, Ferrothorn, Excadrill, and Whimsicott for super-effective damage. Roost allows Altaria to recover its HP, while Agaility doubles its decent Speed stat to ridiculous levels.
