Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to lower the target's Speed by one stage.

Competitive Use

There is not much competitive value in this move. At all. It's outclassed by virtually every other Normal-type move in the game, thanks to its horrible Base Power, and its only side effect has a very low chance of happening.

Related Moves

Return has a higher Base Power and perfect accuracy, making it a much more reliable option.

Double-Edge is a much more powerful alternative; however, it inflicts recoil damage upon the user.
