Description

Deals damage and has a 50% chance to lower the target's accuracy by one stage.

Competitive Use

Not the most useful move, as the only users are Octillery and Kingdra, and both Pokemon have better things to do with that slot. The low Base Power is a big factor in explaining this move's lack of use, but not the only one. It simply doesn't hit hard enough and reducing the target's accuracy is not a reliable strategy. Most battlers would prefer to use a more powerful Water-type attack like Surf or Hydro Pump right from the start.
