Vital Throw

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority Damage Target
Fighting 70 - 10 -1 Physical Single non-user

Description

Deals damage and has a priority of -1. Ignores all accuracy and evasion modifiers.

Competitive Use

Vital Throw would be a decent move that would see some use if Smogon didn't apply the Evasion Clause. Since moves that raise evasion are forbidden in this competitive scene this attack has no reason to be used. Theoretically, if you are concerned about Sand Veil or Snow Cloak abusers this move could come in handy, but even then moves with greater Base Power are more reliable options.

Related Moves

Close Combat is a more powerful alternative with normal priority that lowers the user's defenses.
