Sacred Sword

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fighting 90 100% 20 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage. This move ignores the target's defensive stat stage changes, including accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Competitive Use

Sacred Sword, the signature move of the Musketeers, is by no means a bad move, having a respectable 90 Base Power and perfect accuracy. However, Sacred Sword will always be outclassed on offensive versions of the Musketeers by Close Combat, a move with significantly more Base Power. On defensive variants, however, Sacred Sword is a great STAB move to abuse, as it will not lower the user's defensive stats.

Related Moves

Close Combat is a more powerful option that lowers the user's defenses.

Superpower is an option with the same Base Power as Close Combat but lowers the user's Attack and Defense as opposed to Defense and Special Defense.
