except most rock moves have a horrible accuracy and abysmal damage compared to moves of other types.

mind you I probably won't be using that pokemon anyway unless it had some godly stat distribution.

and then stealth rocks.
and then you go out and then back in

and your dead.

you really overestimate the effectiveness of moves that damage on switch, it was useless before but now it deals damage proportional to 1/4 of its power as opposed to 1/2 before.

Didn't realize that they nerfed it in 6th gen.
That's good to hear.

power gem is a killer

70 power, and it's special while most rock types specialize in physical.

there are also only 2 pokemon that can learn it that won't get you laughed out of most competitions and they're both legendary, which are usually restricted.

my ampharos learned it and im talking about ising it against fire flying which it ******* murders

your ampharos would be better off using thunderbolt, 95 power>70 power same accuracy and you get the bonus multiplier from using a move of your type plus it being super effective against flying.

also, ampharos in competition lolwut?

dude i know how pokemon works. but what do you mean in competition? im just talking about the games
User avatar #49 to #48 - KillinTime (06/15/2013) [-]
competition, or competitive battling. for every day playing against the pokemon league n stuff ampharos is fine but once you get into competitive (the subject of this post) you're getting into a massive world of min-maxing, cheap strategies, abuse of abilities and all that jazz. between breeding for max IV's and natures to full EV training.

basically my point was being doubly weak against rock when rock is such a dead-end is a very bad reason to not use a fire-flying type.
