My favorites!



I think that higher accuracy but lower powered moves are better.

However, I'll pick thunder over any other move lol

Hypocrite? I think so.

I guess it depends on the pokemon using it and what is in play in the battle.

Like if it was raining, definantley Thunder over Thunderbolt/Thundershock.

Of course, I would choose a move like Flamethrower over Fire Blast anyday.

So for me, the lower/medium attack power with high accuracy over high attack power with low accuracy. happy.gif

Underused.



Depends for me;
If the Pokémon is bulky and can take a couple of hits, then using the stronger ones is an option.
If the Pokémon is fast, powerful, but fragile. Accuracy over power.

And then there's of course the case of there being rain or a snowstorm in effect. 100% chance to hit on thunder and blizzard = win c:

I go with power. When I play my games I always try to have a steady supply of X Accuracy, X Speed, Dire Hit, ect. It works great when you use moves like Zap Cannon. :V

It depends on the strategy needed, but overall I prefer low attack high accuracy moves.

That's a tricky topic but for me... I'd go for lower power but more PP, after all...the meat of the work isn't in the powerhits but in the moves that are reliable.

Under normal circumstances, I, too, would go for the weaker, more accurate moves. However, when it comes to strategies, sometimes the stronger, less accurate moves can come in handy, especially when it comes to zapping some unsuspecting fools that like to use Protect/Detect all the time. Raining Thunder might not have a high chance of hitting like that, but it's there, and it's still more effective than Feint, which is absolutely useless under any other circumstance. That aside, when it comes to specific combos, like Raining Thunder, Hailing Blizzard, and Insta-Solarbeam, the powerful moves win out. Anything else, the weaker moves are recommended for their accuracy.

it honestly depends on the Pokemon really. Like the others stated above, if a pokemon's a hit sweeper, then they can risk a low accuracy move because they usually have poor defenses and would faint with a 2HKO or an OHKO if the oppenent is strong enough. But with bulkier Pokemon, they need high accuracy moves like Surf and Thunderbolt so a Struggle doesn't pop up. Unless you have a Pokemon with Last Resort, but that move never gets used in an battle really.

PP Usage isn't really an issue, because you could always use a PP Max or PP Up to maximize a low accuracy move.

Id prefer to use the weaker high accuracy moves like flamethrower, thunderbolt and ice beam...not as weak as swift and quick attack though. I do have a liking for 1 hit KO moves though... but i think it really depends on the pokemon you're using.

Moves like Hydro Pump and Thunder are BEASTLY in Rain Dance / Lock-On but on normal conditions they suck majorly. I usually use moves which are a tad weaker but have better accuracy (And also more PP seeing as moves like Thunder only have 5 - 10 pp and not much more when raised to max).

They just pay off faster than Thunder, Hydro Pump, and the like imo.

I'd pick high accuracy any day. Power means nothing if you can't hit anything.

Aura Sphere is awesome. Ninety power, never misses...

Gen 5, please? :3



High accuracy's better, since what good is the move if it can't hit? But there are also those moves that hit hard and are accurate, like Eruption with full HP.

I think it depends on the conditions. I would use weaker, but higher accuracy moves. Sure, the other ones have higher damage, but what's the point if they have low PP and don't hit most of the time? But, if there's something that will make the others move's accuracy higher, (Ex: Rain Dance and Thunder) then yeah, I'd go for it. But most of the time, weaker but better accuracy moves for me.

Most of the time I'd go for Ice Beam over Blizzard, but I'd usually use Blizzard as well. Although Galvantula with Compoundeyes pretty much negates this problem =D

I prefer strong and accurate moves thank you very much.
*COUGHFusionflarehas100basepowerand100%accuracyCOUGH*

But as the above poster said, Ice Beam is a pretty boss attack. I prefer it to Blizzard because it's both accurate, and gets the job done.

I think it depends on the player. Some people juat want to defeat the opponent ASAP so they use the unreliable moves. I perfer to stay away form those moves. Others like the good accuracy because it can sometimes save their Pokemon's lives. I use both. Ex: In Pokemon black, my Samorott has megahorn, revenge, razor shell, and surf. I only us Megahorn when i have to. It hasn't failed me yet. Combining the weak and strong moves is very important, but... there is always accuracy bosting Items/abillitys so you can use those those, too.

Hey, am I one of the few who gave this long of an answer?
