Shock Wave

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Electric 60 - 20 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and ignores all accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Competitive Use

Shock Wave is useless move competitively. Due to the Evasion Clause, you will almost never see a Pokemon who can avoid 100% accurate attacks like Thunderbolt, which is always superior to Shock Wave. Nearly every Pokemon with access to Shock Wave also has access to Thunderbolt.
