Slash

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Normal 70 100% 20 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a critical hit rate one stage higher than normal. Assuming there are no other critical hit modifiers in play, this move has a 1/8 chance to get a critical hit instead of a 1/16 chance.

Competitive Use

Slash is not a very good move. Even with a higher critical hit ratio than normal, Return outdamages Slash an overwhelming majority of the time, so Return should always be used over Slash.

Related Moves

Return is stronger.

Double-Edge is much stronger and has recoil damage.
