Deals damage. Provided the move hits, the user must recharge the following turn, and may not attack or switch.
All the recipients of Frenzy Plant have more reliable options, including Giga Drain and Energy Ball, on hand; some can even use attacks such as Wood Hammer and Leaf Storm, which pack near equal power without the horrid one-turn recharge period. Frenzy Plant has nearly no competitive use; save it for slaying Team Plasma with your Serperior in-game.
Energy Ball has 80 Base Power and no recharge period.
Giga Drain has 75 Base Power and no recharge period, that heals the user half of the damage dealt.
Leaf Storm has 140 Base Power and lowers the user's Special Attack by two stages.
