Hydro Cannon

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Water 150 90% 5 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage. Provided the move hits, the user must recharge the following turn, and may not attack or switch.

Competitive Use

Scald, Surf, and Hydro Pump are all excellent alternatives to this dud attack. The recharge turn is simply not worth the extra Base Power; save Hydro Cannon for in-game fun.
