Night Daze

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Dark 85 95% 10 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 40% chance to lower the target's accuracy by one stage.

Competitive Use

Night Daze is an exclusive move to the Zoroark line. It's a decent STAB choice with reasonable Base Power and good (albeit not perfect) accuracy. Its added effect to lower the opponent's accuracy is just icing on the cake. When added with a Fighting-type attack such as Focus Blast it gives Zoroark almost perfect neutral coverage on the whole UU tier. However, should the imperfect accuracy be seen as a detriment, Dark Pulse is usually chosen as the safer option, especially if the slightly higher Base Power is not needed.

Related Moves

Dark Pulse is a similar move with perfect accuracy, slightly lower Base Power, and a 20% chance to flinch.
