Meditate

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Psychic - - 40 0 - User

Description

Boosts the user's Attack by one stage.

Competitive Use

Meditate is outclassed by Swords Dance, and should only be used when the latter is unavailable. However, even then most players opt for the power of a Choice Band instead of Meditate, due to the fact that use of a Choice Band means that the player doesn't have to waste a time setting up and can attack right off the bat. What's more, Meditate takes up a moveslot, which could be used instead for another coverage move.
