Dragon Rush

Description

Deals damage and has a 20% chance to flinch the target.

Competitive Use

At first glance, Dragon Rush is a viable alternative over Dragon Claw; however, it suffers from bad distribution and terrible accuracy. While Hone Claws can be used to patch up the latter drawback, using Dragon Dance or Swords Dance with Dragon Claw are almost always better options, the former raising Attack and Speed simultaneously, while the latter instantly doubles the user's Attack (a +2 Dragon Claw is stronger than a +1 Dragon Rush).

Related Moves

Outrage is more powerful and far more accurate, despite locking in the user for 2 to 3 turns.

Dragon Claw is less powerful but also more accurate, and therefore more consistent.

Dual Chop has essentially 80 Base Power but higher accuracy, and strikes in two hits.
