I've never liked it really. It always seemed to me to be more of an annoyance option than an actual good move to use. I guess it makes it harder for Eggy to put it to Sleep as Zam Psychics its health down, and of course makes Exploding a non-option since a 25% chance of missing while killing yourself is not worth it. Plus it annoys Chansey trying to go for the Freeze in the PP war, though usually Chansey should just be paralyzing it anyway. It runs into a lot of the problems Reflect Zam does (easily PP stalled), but unlike Reflect Zam it doesn't have the ability to safely take Physicals' attacks.
