How to use DRACOVISH! Dracovish Moveset Guide! Pokemon Sword and Shield! ⚔️🛡️

yo what’s up guys you got Pokeaim
here with another pokemon sword and shield move set video guide on how to
use Dracovish now if you guys missed any of my previous ones there is a playlist
down below feel free to check them out also I have a guide to team building if
you guys want to check that out as well I saw a few people saying oh how do I
build X team I made a guide already with my buddy BKC that link is down below
we’ll be making an updated guide probably uh well what is it December
first by the time this video goes up yeah I’ll be Sunday December 1st either
by the end of the month or early January just because we want the metagame to
develop a little bit but assuming it does develop or at least more I mean
it’s always developing by the end of the month we’ll have another one then but
yeah Dracovish is it’s not that strong it’s not that bulky but it’s still one
of the best pokemon in pokemon sword and shield and that mainly has to do with
the fact that it has the Fishious Rend which is an attack that is 85 base power
100% accuracy it’s a water STAB move because it is water and
dragon, my two favorite types by the way and it doubles power if the user moves
first so effectively it’s 170 base power and that doesn’t account for stab that
doesn’t account for strong jaw as well so this move is incredibly powerful and
basically it’s a one-trick pony in terms of that it’s mainly just
clicking this move but that’s really all it needs and on the choice band set it
just maximizes the power that you have on this you can run Adaman or Jolly on
this set Jolly would allow you outspeed pokemon
like Bisharp as well as max speed Corviknight but the just damage from
that increase of jolly adamant is crazy one of the cool things about this thing
is while it’s not that bulky it does have respectable
base 80 special defense base 100 defense which is really nice and base 90 HP so
it’s really tough to take down naturally and again being a water dragon has some
nice resistances right there but for the most part with this Pokemon you’re going
to be clicking Fishious Rend crunch is there as it gives you an option to hit Pokemon like Jellicent which is one of the main answers that is switching into
Dracovish another Pokemon would be seismitoad you do a quite a bit of
damage with the crunch there well about 38 40 percent with a choice band actually
no, more, excuse me more because its strong jaw boosted I’m thinking of non-choice band
so you do a good chunk to seismitoad right there on non-choice band you actually
do around 30 37 percent or so low kick is the next move because it’s basically
for Ferrothorn Ferrothorn is a Pokemon that can obviously come in on this thing
it’s also pretty cool too because if you Dynamax you can get your max knuckle and you get +1 attack on this thing so when you go back to normal and you get your
Fishious Rend back because honestly this pokemon isn’t the best at Dynamaxing at
least on the choice band set and I’ll go oh I guess I’m going to detail right now
what I mean by that it loses its strong jaw and its moves and it loses you know
Fishious Rend’s “oh I’m gonna double in power if I go before your opponent” so on
the choice band set I don’t think it’s the best dynamaxing but we’ll talk
about on the next set in a sec and the last move of course is psychic fangs and
this allows us to hit Toxapex which is another Pokemon that can come in on
this Pokemon however if rain is up because actually
rain teams aren’t bad with this Pokemon at all if rain is up this thing
2-hit KOs physically defensive Toxapex with Choice Band strong jaw
boosted Fishious Rend in the rain so it’s crazy, 2-Hit KOs everything or knocks out
everything the only Pokemon that obviously take hits are water absorb
Pokemon I wouldn’t use water absorb on this
Pokemon unfortunately I already did by accident the other day but I would not
use it under normal circumstances and of course when this Pokemon does get the
sand rush ability which is its hidden ability that is something you could run
which would double its speed in sand however just the power that strong jaw
gives you the man is just it’s crazy it’s crazy so another option over psychic
fangs is outrage and outrage gives you a stronger hit versus Dragons obviously
mainly hydreigon the rest of the dragons are hit by at least crunch like Dragapult
for instance and Fishious Rend
hits like neutral with Pokemon like Turtonator I
guess if you want to think about that but I wouldn’t necessarily use outrage I
did slash it but I wouldn’t use it because one of the big things about this
Pokemon is it’s really hard to revenge kill and by that I mean that it’s hard
to knock out after like unless you have a super effective move like Draco meteor
from Hydreigon or something or like a strong move like choice band Darmanitan’s icicle crash this pokemon can live a hit
so if you give it outrage and ditto comes in
obviously ditto will have the choice scarf and the imposter and it can outspeed you and knock you out with outrage so I wouldn’t necessarily go outrage I’d
go psychic fangs next up we have is the choice scarf set which is rocking the exact
same thing again you’re slashing maybe psychic fangs for outrage but for the
most part you’re gonna be running Fishious Rend crunch psychic fangs and low kick and we’re running jolly nature on this thing, allows us to outspeed pokémon
like modest Dragapult which is I think a pretty big one as well as like a you
know an adamant Gyarados if those are necessarily running around but yeah the
the cool thing about this pokemon is that this one can actually take
advantage of the Dynamax and by that I mean like if you Dynamax right you
obviously lose your choice scarf and that will allow you to go for max
knuckle and potentially get +1 or you go for the max geyser and you get the rain
up and then obviously after if you manage to survive because this pokemon
is decently bulky so from Dynamaxing it does obviously take advantage of that I say
obviously a lot my bad but it does take advantage of that and you either get the
+1 attack you can get the rain up you can either use the the max darkness to
help versus something like Jellicent for instance or you know the the max psychic
move for toxapex but the big thing is if you get up that rain and then you go
back to your choice scarf user now you have a choice scarf Dracovish in rain
clicking Fishious Rend and the reason choice scarf is cool because again when
you go before your opponent when you go before your opponent it doubles in power
so if you’re faster than your opponent doubles in power it also doubles in
power if your opponent switches out if I’m not mistaken I believe that also
counts is because the way they did turn mechanics now so I believe it also
counts and also if your opponent goes for Volt Switch so let’s say a choice scarf
Rotom wash goes for volt switch on my Dracovish and I go for Fishious Rend that turn the Pokemon coming in is going to take the doubled power of
Fishious Rend so it’s just pretty crazy to think about like this mon is is really
nice in that regard it’s a one trick pony if it’s probably just gonna be
clicking you know Fishious Rend most of the time but for the
most part that’s really all it needs and this Pokemon is really cool because it’s
basically a good anti offense mon has a good speed tier and
and by anti offense I mean that it’s just able to punish a lot of more frail bones
even offensive builds as well but choice scarf is really good versus offensive mons, offensive Pokemon are typically frail in a sense that they’re not designed to take hits
they’re not always frail but they’re not usually designed to take multiple hits I
mean you know you’re hitting them with a strong jaw boosted, you know double
empowered stab boosted attack does a lot the last set that I think is actually one of
the cooler sets and also good I’ve used it in practice it’s awesome pretty good
is a quick cloth set if you guys don’t know what quick claw does basically it’s a
20% chance every single turn to move first in your bracket of course so like
a priority move would always go before a quick claw Fishious Rend but if I get
the quick claw and I have Dracovish out and there’s some games this has already
happened like I’ve had it happen versus Darmanitan I’ve had it happen
versus Toxtricity, it would allow it to outspeed it for that turn or at least
that specific if they move before it and get the full base power Fishious Rend
that’s pretty cool because again this mon is decently bulky so it actually
takes a Icicle crash anyway from Galarian Darmanitan but the thing is
Darmanitan will live one Fishious Rend from an Adamant Dracovish that’s
not choice band but if I get the quick claw turn one Darmanitan drops
and the idea behind this is to abuse that option again there are other move
sets are there other move items on this that I mentioned as well and that would
be maybe leftovers leftovers is an item if you wanna get some recovery because
what substitute and your natural resistances you can substitute on like
the stealth rock toxic protects scaled Seismitoads that are running around which
is why I think you kind of need earthquake at the moment to be able to
do some damage to this and Metronome is also an option where metronome does is
it basically boosts the power of a move the more times you use it and that’s
obviously very strong for Dragovich and especially because you can sub up on
Pokemon like Toxapex which scald is 4x resisted so it takes a lot of
scalds to be able to break Dracovish’s Sub and that’s why we have
psychic fangs and crunch we want to be able to deal with we want to be able to
avoid Strength sap from Jellicent we want to be able to avoid will o wisp want to
be able to avoid scald burns from Toxpaex and basically just spam you know
psychic fangs crunch and Fishious Rend this set is so cool because it also if
you’re running a quick claw and it activates it’s really hard to revenge go
pokemon that is consistently moving before you when you’re trying to
go out to your choice scarf or your faster Pokemon to deal with it so
Dracovish all in all is a very very very threatening Pokemon in terms of
teammates it’s crazy because like this mon doesn’t really need too much to
survive obviously a weakened Ferrothorn a weakened Seimitoad you know a weakened
Jellicent are all very good because those are all Pokemon that can take at least
one hit and they’re stopping dracovish from spamming its Fishious Rend
though Ferrothorn if its in the rain if it’s choice band I mean it’s getting t2-Hit KOd by this beast so that is something even Toxapex is getting 2-Hit KOd, so Pokemon that can deal with that I really like hazard support
as well I like Ferrothorn plus Dracovish as well because it has you know that
weakness to Dragon and obviously Ferrothorn does resist that and gets up
hazards knock off is pretty cool as Ferrothorn as a partner as well he’s
getting rid of the recovery on opposing Toxapex or opposing Ferrothorn
like leftovers for instance is really good because that’s its recovery right
so it’s not gonna be able to take Fishious Rend more I definitely think you want
Pokemon that can deal with hydreigon as well that’s a Pokemon that’s probably to
be coming in this Pokemon if it’s banded it’s not gonna it’s not gonna come in on
this Pokemon but after It will usually come in to revenge kill so in answer to Hydreigon is nice, fairy types like a clefable and sylveon are pretty good
specifically lifeorb clefable with magic guard I think is really really
nice because it has the the fire blast /
flamethrower to deal with Pokemon like Ferrothorn which Dracovish obviously
does not like thunderbolt as well for for Toxapex or even Light Orb
Thunder can be cool it’s a 2-hit ko and you know can also at the same time come
in on hydreigon and wall it unless Hydreigon is +2 and goes for the the max
steel move so that is something to think about but I I think Clefable is a
pretty nice solid option with it because it checks the dragon types and this is also a
Pokemon you just pour on your offense and it’s nice because like Pokemon like
Cinderace are running around to do things like court change and you know
mix up hazards so you can use this Pokemon on offense even on
sticky web offense with like choice brand or choice scarf and you basically
punish Cinderace if it goes for its move he’s gonna click that Fishious Rend but
yeah it’s all I have for you guys today again if you guys want to check out

GrannyBashy · December 1, 2019 at 7:59 pm

Seismitoad sets changed from swift swim to water absorb just for this abomination

8 Frogs Driving A Car · December 1, 2019 at 8:00 pm

Ninetales · December 1, 2019 at 8:02 pm

If fishious rend isnt the only move on the Moveset I swear

iStarlyTV · December 1, 2019 at 8:04 pm

Gen 7 gave us the water spider whose main gimmick was to spam super powerful water moves.

Now Gen 8 has given us this abomination. Will scientific wonders never cease?

Assess The Threat · December 1, 2019 at 8:04 pm

Joey really just wasted 11 minutes to say "click scarf fishious rend"

Dlandis 1029 · December 1, 2019 at 8:06 pm

Rain Tempest · December 1, 2019 at 8:08 pm

I've been running Arctovish as my check to this thing. The fossils of this gen are super fun, they've really grown on me

Golden Vortex · December 1, 2019 at 8:09 pm

Just use choice band under rain and Ohko almost everything

xCelticgx · December 1, 2019 at 8:09 pm

Very nice guide bro. Going to do Dracozolt next?

SnoRelax · December 1, 2019 at 8:12 pm

If this thing got dragon dance it would’ve been even more of a monster

Mr. Hippo · December 1, 2019 at 8:12 pm

Pelipper eject button. Instant rain, + can use tailwind if it is not hit on the switch

Nora Shinki · December 1, 2019 at 8:19 pm

I really slept on this mon when I first saw its stats, but then Blunder dropped the dracovish vid. S/O the agency.

Finn Landa · December 1, 2019 at 8:20 pm


Kwayke · December 1, 2019 at 8:23 pm

Pretty sure you meant "How to spam Fishious Rend". Dracovish is just the move here

Austyn H · December 1, 2019 at 8:28 pm

1:17 crazy how this guy just could've sent out TTar first and won with sand

Rasmus n.e.M · December 1, 2019 at 8:29 pm

When man plays God, his creations are created in his Old Testament image of floods for sins a cleansing, a flood of red rip-tide schools of wyrmfangs unable to be drowned by the damning downpour and unaffected by the damming starboard of the Arc that wasn't to be much longer. Dracovish is here to star in a tragedy of painful osmosis; pain outside Dracovish be equal to pain inside Dracovish.

Oh, and it was a dark and stormy night xD

Eloy Lopez · December 1, 2019 at 8:30 pm

I was watching someone elses moveset guide on dracovish when i saw this and instantly clicked it, no shade to that other guy (i watched enough of his vid to give him the view)

Big Sped · December 1, 2019 at 8:30 pm

Do cramorant

Joshua Howell · December 1, 2019 at 8:30 pm

Hey man love the builds and vids. I know you're covering new mons but I'm struggling to figure out how to use Aegislash properly these days. Care to make a guide for him?

groudon gamer · December 1, 2019 at 8:31 pm

I never thought I would see the day a fossil mon would be viable in competitive…..

Dale Williams · December 1, 2019 at 8:31 pm

Just wait for HA Dracovish and Dragozolt

nevil van tuijl · December 1, 2019 at 8:32 pm

Props for turning around the image on each set. Very handy if you're wachting this back for the set

Hi Sen3.14 · December 1, 2019 at 8:33 pm

I don't know if you, or anyone else, have noticed but in the first bio, the title says it's Adamant but the spread say it's Jolly (by increasing speed and not attack). I'm genuinely confused which one I should get for competitive since you mention both in the video itself.

Mark Lee Qui · December 1, 2019 at 8:39 pm

How do I breed this to get good Ivs

Jeune Homme · December 1, 2019 at 8:40 pm

This video is sponsored by the Agency

JJShwa · December 1, 2019 at 8:40 pm

Jolly Scarfed Dracovish outspeeds a Barraskewda by 1 stat point. Barraskewda with 408 speed, this has 409.

pokeaimMD · December 1, 2019 at 8:48 pm

Noticed a mixup on the set presentation! First and third set are Adamant as opposed to Jolly like the spread set would lead you to believe. Sorry about that! The pastebin for the sets are the description as well.

José Roberto L. · December 1, 2019 at 8:49 pm

Missing the water absorb set of the last showdown live lol

fallenphoenix · December 1, 2019 at 8:49 pm

Step 1: Put strong jaw on it

Lightning · December 1, 2019 at 8:50 pm

Can anyone donate me a abilitie capsule 😢 or an adamant jolly strong jaw draco

God Darkrai · December 1, 2019 at 8:50 pm

I really like how powercreep got worst from gen 4 to 5, 5 to 6 and 6 to 7 with things that had ridiculous stats like kartana with base 180 attack and now comes gen 8 with this thing that doesnt even have 100 speed or attack and dominates part of the meta

Ascadeus · December 1, 2019 at 8:51 pm

Why do the fossils this gen look like pieces of a cut up dragon with heads spawning from them??

PKSparkxx DatHottneSS · December 1, 2019 at 8:54 pm

"Just click Fishious Rend with Sticky Web/Tailwind up."

Kobe Tran · December 1, 2019 at 8:55 pm

u have adamant as plus speed

Spencer Yeager · December 1, 2019 at 8:56 pm

Is Dracovish’s water absorb ability viable?

Avossk · December 1, 2019 at 8:58 pm

Recommended Dracovish moveset:

-Fisheous Rend
-Thats it
-Literally just click that one move
-No other move matters

William · December 1, 2019 at 9:00 pm

Fossils this gen are so freshh 😍

Helios · December 1, 2019 at 9:00 pm

InfinityNation100 · December 1, 2019 at 9:03 pm

Viyus Avery · December 1, 2019 at 9:03 pm

Joey don't do showcases on to many of the more hype Pokémon space them out with some lesser Mons like Rolycoly

Ja Curururur · December 1, 2019 at 9:08 pm

It's much better on the battle stadium

Matty HAM · December 1, 2019 at 9:08 pm

Video should be named How to Use the Devil Himself tbh

Zakeem Lucien · December 1, 2019 at 9:09 pm

No need for 3 move slots, click fishious rend every single time

Santiago Carbuccia · December 1, 2019 at 9:10 pm

Freeze dry defensive Lapras is the perfect counter, he can't do anything

Christopher Santiago · December 1, 2019 at 9:12 pm

Moveset? you only need 1 move dude

Victor van Rosmalen · December 1, 2019 at 9:14 pm

Imagine if Spacious rend had worked the same way on Palkia

tpeasetiger · December 1, 2019 at 9:17 pm

Love the videos. Do you have rental teams or recommendations for rental teams?

ShadowCoH316 · December 1, 2019 at 9:21 pm

I wish this thing got Last Resort. All I need is that and Fishious Rend XD

Owry · December 1, 2019 at 9:24 pm

Joey please talk about lc banning dynamax

Zaptor-Fan99 · December 1, 2019 at 9:27 pm

What about Jolly Choice Band and Adamant Choice Scarf? Would that be a good idea?

Dalton Oldfield · December 1, 2019 at 9:28 pm

Please do Obstagoon next 🙌🏻

Yee Yee Juice · December 1, 2019 at 9:33 pm

You only need one move

TheFirstGodfather · December 1, 2019 at 9:37 pm

Justgiveit EarthPower · December 1, 2019 at 9:47 pm

Wow so many dragons this gen and only one is legendary

Diogo Castro · December 1, 2019 at 9:51 pm

How to use Alcremie is the video that im waiting for XD

Jack Vortmeier · December 1, 2019 at 9:54 pm

I saw a stat saying ditto was Top 3 in usage so far. Why? Did it get a buff this gen?

Christopher Chen · December 1, 2019 at 10:03 pm

I have been using Pelipper's Drizzle + Tailwind with this and it is scary.

Brandon Connor · December 1, 2019 at 10:05 pm

how'd you make him so cute in the thumbnail 😍

starsimvidz · December 1, 2019 at 10:12 pm

quick claw dracovish is like scald but with chance of death instead.

Daniel Wynn · December 1, 2019 at 10:17 pm

Left a like Joey. My fav set would probably be quick claw XD

SSJ2Pikachu · December 1, 2019 at 10:28 pm

I feel like Game Freak likes to make water op.

Gen 5: Rain + Keldeo, rain in general really
Gen 7: Water Bubble
Gen 8: Fishious Rend

Btw thx for telling that Fishious Rend doubles it's power when u move first.
That explains why it always does so much even with a Choice Scarf.

AwesomeBeedrill · December 1, 2019 at 10:43 pm

Bro… If power was all that mattered, we'd all be using Sand Force Excadrill.

There's a reason we run Sand Rush.

Kerm!t · December 1, 2019 at 10:44 pm

I love dracovish's style so cool

Julian Wendel · December 1, 2019 at 10:46 pm

yo, u did a mistake with the adamant nature, u put the minus and + at the same stats as the jolly nature

Ginjerninjaz · December 1, 2019 at 11:00 pm

I hate this thing

Array · December 1, 2019 at 11:01 pm

We need a Hatterene moveset guide if anything. Loving these vids bro

Jos Batenburg · December 1, 2019 at 11:02 pm

Grapploct plz

Shinidoshi · December 1, 2019 at 11:11 pm

Guys, this thing is 7'07" or 231.14cm and it's taller than Dragonight who is 7'03" or 220.98cm how wild is that

littlenooby · December 1, 2019 at 11:32 pm

Adamant scarf is the way to go

littlenooby · December 1, 2019 at 11:40 pm

The one thing i dislike about the current meta is that there are too many one trick ponies in that you slap a band specs or scarf and then proceed to click one move but still manages to overwhelm the opponent due to the sheer power of it… Take a lot of skills and predicting out of the equation

Tnarg122333 · December 1, 2019 at 11:49 pm

You forgot about the imposterproofed set of literally only fishious rend with a water absorb mon in the back. (Mostly a meme but seriously though it isn't that bad of an idea)

yami ryuu · December 1, 2019 at 11:55 pm

I have a shiny dracovish!!! It took me 2 days!

Addde · December 2, 2019 at 12:26 am

W8 how dracovish was faster than excadrill?

Cristian Davis · December 2, 2019 at 12:34 am

The two ice fossils really need boosting moves though.

Pathetic bitch · December 2, 2019 at 12:36 am

Dracovish used Fishious Rend!
It's not very effective…
(The opposing Toxapex lost 100% of its health!)

The opposing Toxapex fainted!

stefano camilli · December 2, 2019 at 12:36 am

That thing will be the nightmare for stall teams

Ocha · December 2, 2019 at 12:43 am

I can't wait for you to do Dracozolt! Show the people that mon's not playing around either!

Gustavo Rodríguez · December 2, 2019 at 12:50 am

Bro imagine if Mega Sharpedo existed in SwSh AND had Fishious Rend.

Quarry · December 2, 2019 at 2:02 am

Airf0il · December 2, 2019 at 2:37 am

When science has gone too far.

The Lahs · December 2, 2019 at 3:10 am

Is there a way to breed him or do you have to cycle through fossils until you get the one that you want?

Gaspar Peralta · December 2, 2019 at 3:24 am

wait dracovish learns moves other than Fishious Rend?

lycan2500 1 · December 2, 2019 at 3:45 am

1. Click Fishious Rend.
2. If Jellicent or Seismitoad, click coverage.
3. Win.

The PinSir · December 2, 2019 at 3:49 am

So happy that this mon is actually pretty good and getting so much usage rn

Black Swordsman Yuudai · December 2, 2019 at 4:05 am

Why is Dracozolt not used as much as Dracovish? Is it because of Hustle's shaky accuracy?

FullTimeSlacker · December 2, 2019 at 4:08 am

Imagine if this thing has hidden power flying. Could max airstream turn 1 and sweep with a choice band. So now I understand why hidden powers are gone

Eloy Lopez · December 2, 2019 at 4:36 am

Would it be worth it to run adamant shoice scarf?

P K F I R R · December 2, 2019 at 5:12 am

Will a adamant mint still work to the same affect than having a adamant nature dracovish

dinolover · December 2, 2019 at 6:17 am

Dracovish feels constant pain and has to let you know about it…one way or another.

GrizzlyScalp950 · December 2, 2019 at 6:35 am

Never thought they would make a move more broken than thousand arrows.

Renbou · December 2, 2019 at 8:05 am

try blunder policy with dragon rush for some real heat

MrQueerLeader · December 2, 2019 at 10:40 am

2007: Brave Bird everything

2019: Fishious Rend everything

lesaniku niku · December 2, 2019 at 11:31 am

Came here for the comments on my boy agent00biteme

Milton bez ziemi · December 2, 2019 at 12:40 pm

I love Dracovish

Judas Brobert · December 2, 2019 at 2:47 pm

A dracovish guide from Mr. Strongjaw himself, now thats the content I subscribed for!👌

Donovan Valtz · December 2, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Loving your how to use videos . Been really helping me put together some fun squads

Agt Fedrik · December 2, 2019 at 3:49 pm
