They're all good, and, at least from my point of view, it comes down to how long they can last on the battle field. So, let's break it down in terms of weaknesses.

Blaziken- Weak to Psychic, Flying, Water, and Ground. But being fast, you'd have to have a moveset that covers a lot of types.

Tyranitar-Water, Ground, Steel, Grass, and then a X4 weakness to Fighting. And it's really slow, so a strong fighting move could off this guy in one shot.

Weavile-Fire, Bug, Steel, Rock, and a X4 weakness to Fighting, plus some bad defense. But it makes up for speed, so it's the same story with Blaziken.

Electivire-The only Pokemon out of this lot that only has one weakness, ground, making it an asset. Plus, decent speed and attack. This is my favorite physical sweeper. A lot of people use these.

Infernape-Same story as Blaziken


Gyarados-Flying takes away grass effectiveness, but gains rock and makes Electric more dangerous. Gyarados is much better, especially with Waterfall being physical and then Aqua Tail.

So my vote is Electivire.

Weavile and Electivire are both excellent sweepers.

Weavile is fast and strong, but lacks defense.

Electivire is strong, but slower than Weavile. (Though this can be rectified with a boost from Motor Drive)

Hands down its between Weavile and Electivire honestly because
Electivire only has one weakness to ground and it can eliminate it with an Ice Punch while Weavile can also cover 10 types. The others are great too.

If u go simply by the typing, u guys have it set, but there is more to the elements. There is team blending, and a great deal depends on the other guys team. Weavile can dominate some teams, but get a hitmonchan with mach punch out and weavile is gone. electivire can be incredibly powerful, especially with that motor drive boost, but if there arent any pokes with an obvious electric weakness in the team, his speed is mediocre and its hard to find the opportunity to switch him in. there are several other notable absenses from the poll, Garchomp, Salamence, Heracross to name a few.

But anyway, my vote goes to gyarados, as discovering a weakness to him forced me to restructure my team.

Electivire is good unless you max out speed which I did 317. Also Weavile
can have the Focus Sash and can have another turn to beat the Dragons.
Don't underestimate its power simply because it has 4x weakness.
Gyardos is an exceptional pokemon no doubt about it. I think any pokemon in the list up in the thread has potential. True Garchomp, Heracross, Scizor, Slaking, Metagross, Salamence, Rhyperior all should
be included.***

You posted the same thing twice my friend. :P You might want to delete one because you're also double posting. Even though Scizor isn't up there, I like him the best. :D

Not true. Chuck Norris has even been featured on a pokemon card*
see http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Chuck_Norris
It's at the bottom; check out who he evolves from!



*of course this isn't true. You won't believe it unless you're retarded...

That Chuck Norris thing was too funny...Stage One Jesus lol

But i think Slaking makes a good Physical Sweeper but you have to do alot of switching out to make good use of it

hmm it seems like electivire is winning,yes slaking is one of the most strongest sweeper but its ability really cripples it sadly,and everyone should be lucky that it can't learn skill swap.

It sounds biased, but TTar with at least one DD is amazing, and most Pokes wont be able to outspeed it.

I have to agree Tyranitar becomes a beast. Unless you can strategize
with it. DD works great about twice but once is enough. If Tyranitar faints
the users team is in big trouble unless you have mineral pokemon that won't get hurt from the Sandstream.

I saw Gyrados. Immunity to EQ really helps, even with the double electric.
