Gen V – The Best Deal for Your Dust – Part 2

In part two of “Gen V – The Best Deal for Your Dust” we will cover the Legendary Pokémon in Generation V – Unova, that are worth spending some of your precious Stardust on for use in PvE.

TERRAKION
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Zen Headbutt
Smack Down
Close Combat
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Terrakion is a dual Fighting- & Rock-type Gen V Legendary Pokémon. As a Fighting-type, it is nothing to write home about; however, as a Rock-type, Terrakion trails only Rampardos in terms of DPS making it a must add to your Rock-type squads.
THUNDURUS (THERIAN FORM)
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Thunder Shock
Astonish
Thunder
Thunder Punch
Brick Break
Crunch
Thundurus (Therian Forme) will be near the top of the Electric-types, falling in just behind Zekrom, Normal Forme Deoxys, Electivire, and Raikou in terms of DPS. 
RESHIRAM
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Fire Fang
Dragon Breath
Overheat
Stone Edge
Draco Meteor
Crunch
Upon its release, Reshiram will become the #1 Fire-type in Pokémon GO. A sky-high attack stat, mixed with excellent defense and stamina stats, means this Gen V Legendary will have a massive punch and the bulk to make it a force to be feared. Reshiram’s only drawback is that it’s only Dragon-type Charged Move available is Draco Meteor.
ZEKROM
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Charge Beam
Dragon Breath
Wild Charge
Flash Cannon
Outrage
Crunch
If it wasn’t for fellow Gen V Legendary Black Kyurem, Zekrom might be the new king of the mountain. In terms of DPS, the day it’s released Zekrom becomes the #1 Electric-type ahead of even the super-powered glass cannon, Normal Forme Deoxys. As a Dragon-type, Zekrom holds its own; what it lacks in DPS it makes up for in TDO thanks to its bulk. All-in-all, Zekrom warrants all the dust you can throw at it.
LANDORUS (THERIAN FORME)
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Mud Shot
Rock Throw
Focus Blast
Earth Power
Outrage
Rock Slide
Landorus (Therian Forme) will move ahead Excadrill and Groudon as the top Ground-type in terms of DPS. The combination of Mud Shot / Earth Power is no joke and will lay waste to anything weak to Ground-type moves. When Landorus is released, you will want to invest dust in it early and often.
BLACK KYUREM
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Dragon Tail
Shadow Claw
Outrage
Blizzard

Iron Head
Stone Edge
All hail the new Dragon King. Black Kyurem is a ridiculously high powered Ice- and Dragon-type Gen V Legendary Pokémon. Upon its release, Black Kyurem will move straight to the #1 spot on the Dragon-type chart in terms of both DPS and TDO. To say “use your dust on this” is a massive understatement.  
WHITE KYUREM
FAST MOVESCHARGED MOVES
Dragon Breath
Steel Wing
Dragon Pulse
Blizzard
Focus Blast
Ancient Power
White Kyurem is another super-powered Gen V Dragon-type. Where it falls behind Black Kyurem is with its moveset. Getting stuck with only Dragon Pulse means that falls behind many of the other top Dragon-types in terms of DPS. Access to Blizzard, however, could prove interesting, although, it would be more interesting had it gotten an Ice-type Fast Move instead of Steel Wing.
