    Personally, I'm a fan of Ice Beam more than Toxic; and Rain Dance helps out more by comboing with the ability.

    i'm for the first, but why not drop the rest - chesto for something else? maybe dragonbreath, for the para-flinch effect... and hold a kingsrock..

    no rest/chesto stays, just to good of a combo to miss ;). Plus after using double team at start Kingdra will need healing.

    Definitly the first, though I have a good Paraflincher with Rest.
    @Kings Rock
    Rest
    Dragon Breath
    Surf/Water Pulse
    Rain Dance

    Its defenses and lack of weaknesses should keep it alive during rest, unless facing another Dragon!

    I recommend Water Pulse over Surf, mainly because although it does do less damage overall, if you're going 2v2, surf will split up between the two of your enemies, and if one of them has water resistance, it's nowhere near as effective as it could be. However, as this one is a Paraflincher, why not top it off by causing both Flinch (KingsRock) and Confusion (WaterPulse), for a much better effect!
    Sure, if you only plan on using it for 1on1 battles, go Surf, but I recommend the pulse instead. Hey, if you change your mind, you can always go surf later...

    i agree. have we forgotten about the great para-fuse technique, even in way back RBY? lapras was my fave for this, and also gengar. confuse ray, and body slam, or lick. the paralyzed and confused status really hurts the opponent... what more if they flinch! ouch! you can even just rest while he kills himself in confusion... great moveset overall. you could even drop rain dance if you wanted, and add agility or ice beam...

    Agility for Raindance? What the ....? Are you nuts. Check Kingdras Ability. Swift Swim allows him to move tons faster while it is Raining. And then there is the advantage of Water move + Water Type + Rain. No Raindance is a nice move for him. Thought of Ice Beam, but no, dotn want it.

    For actuall tourney/non CPU play I will replace Surf with Pulse. Confusion/Flinch/Paralysis is just to sweet, and how often can they attack me threw it?

    Heres a thought though, would Surf on 2 on 2, cause one or both to flinch if holding Kings Rock?

    wait, i forgot about that. scrap that idea. forget agility. go raindance though. pulse would be better for the whole effects combo, but maybe surf might be the factor because of its damage... that's quite a big margin, 60 and 95... but anyway, you can always change to surf anytime...

    Its kewl, when I first started this Kingdra, I was giving it Dragon Dance thinking it would boost my Dragon Breath, but it wont. Then I thought Agility, and relized Rain Dance would boost speed and my STABed water attack at same time. And on Kingdra Pulse is a 90 (without Rain) and Surf is a 142.5. Since it is STABed and all. With Rain it is doubled those. So overall, Surf gets a HUGE advantage Attack wise.... but that Confusion is what lured me to Pulse
