Signal Beam

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Bug 75 100% 15 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to confuse the target.

Competitive Use

Signal Beam is a generally outclassed move. As a specially-based Bug-type move, it is completely outclassed by Bug Buzz due to Bug Buzz's higher Base Power. As a coverage move for the many Psychic-types who receive Signal Beam, Shadow Ball is normally a better choice, as many of these Psychic-types will also have Focus Blast or Hidden Power Fighting to cover Dark-types alongside their STAB and Shadow Ball.

Related Moves

Bug Buzz is a more powerful alternative.
