Hone Claws

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Dark - - 15 0 - User

Description

Boosts the user's Attack and accuracy by one stage.

Competitive Use

Hone Claws is outclassed by Swords Dance in most cases since Pokemon's STAB moves do not need accuracy boosts, but there are a few Pokemon that make good use of the move. Durant is the best example; it does not learn Swords Dance, and has the Hustle ability. Hone Claws's accuracy boost alleviates Hustle's accuracy drop, and the combined power of the two elements grants Durant phenomenal power.

Related Moves

Coil is an option that also boosts Defense in addition to Attack and accuracy.

Swords Dance is an option that boosts the Attack stat by +2, and does not boost accuracy.
