Steel Wing

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Steel 70 90% 25 0 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a 10% chance to boost the user's Defense by one stage.

Competitive Use

While a Defense boost may seem like a valuable asset, Steel Wing's low accuracy and an only 10% chance to get that boost make it unreliable. Furthermore, Steel Wing is discouraged due to Steel's terrible offensive coverage.

Related Moves

Iron Head is a more powerful alternative with a chance to flinch the target.

Meteor Mash is a much more powerful alternative with a chance to raise the user's Attack.
