Smog

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Poison 20 70% 20 0 Special Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 40% chance to poison the target.

Competitive Use

Smog is simply too weak to see any competitive use. While the 40% chance to poison the opponent is nice, and higher than any similar moves, the lack of Base Power means that you are better off either using Toxic or a different Poison-type move. Interestingly, a multitude of Fire-types get this attack; however, the one main type they would want to hit with this move would be the Grass-type, and their STAB already scores a super effective hit on said type.

Related Moves

Sludge Bomb is a more powerful alternative, with only a 30% chance to poison the target.

Sludge Wave is a more powerful alternative, with only a 10% chance of poisoning the opponent.
