Confusion

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Psychic 50 100% 25 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to confuse the target.

Competitive Use

Confusion is the weakest special Psychic-type move available, and with the existence of Psychic as a more powerful version, more easily available option, there is literally no reason to use Confusion in a competitive environment.

Related Moves

Psychic is a stronger alternative with 90 Base Power.

Psyshock is an alternative with 80 Base Power that deals physical damage.
