Struggle Bug

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Bug 30 100% 20 0 Special All enemies

Description

Deals damage and has a 100% chance to lower the target's Special Attack by one stage.

Competitive Use

A measly 30 Base Power and a situational side effect spell doom for Struggle Bug. Despite wide distribution, this move should be left alone and forgotten in favor of better attacks.

Related Moves

Bug Buzz is a much more powerful alternative.

Snarl also lowers the opponent's Special Attack.
