Mister Gay Dolphin, see: my previous post, or read better.
Anyway, my final response since I fucking said I wasn't going to entertain more arguments.

Swords Dance Garchomp is a potent sweeper in its own right as well, and isn't forced to rely on the mediocre Dragon Dance + Life Orb Outrage Salamence needs in order to deliver the same power Garchomp can do with just one Swords Dance.
Salamence isn't crippled by Toxic Spikes, etc. Salamence is actually a much better hit-and-run pokémon than Garchomp, as it has a higher base Attack and actually threatens with Special attacks. Similarly to saying Salamence needs LO to match Garchomp's power, Garchomp actually has no method of mimicking Salamence's Speed. (Well, Scarf, but yeah...) If anything, Salamence is the one looking superior in your short comparison.
