Aerial Ace

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Flying 60 - 20 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and ignores all accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Competitive Use

Aerial Ace is yet another of a whole host of low-power physical Flying-type moves, rubbing shoulders with Pluck, Sky Drop, and Wing Attack among others. Of these, Aerial Ace is perhaps the most interesting, not only because it has the widest circulation of any of these moves, but also because of its nice effect, which can really help with your blood pressure by reducing the number of times you have to rage at your computer monitor because you've just lost a battle due to missing at a critical time. Sadly, its low power makes it pretty much useless for most Pokemon, even those that don't have a better STAB move. The only real exception to this rule is Scyther, who thanks to its Technician ability can bump up Aerial Ace's Base Power to 90, making it a pretty decent STAB attack to use.

Related Moves

Brave Bird is a much more powerful option, but causes recoil damage to the user.

Drill Peck is a more powerful option, but has no additional effect.

Faint Attack is a Dark-type equivalent.

Shadow Punch is a Ghost-type equivalent.

Magnet Bomb is a Steel-type equivalent.

Magical Leaf is a special Grass-type equivalent.

Shock Wave is a special Electric-type equivalent.

Swift is a special Normal-type equivalent.
