Skull Bash

Type Power Accuracy PP Priority
Normal 100 100% 15 0

Description

Charges up turn one, and then attacks turn two.

Competitive Use

Like all moves that take a turn to charge up, Skull Bash is not a good competitive move. Unlike other charge-up moves like Fly or Dig, Skull Bash does not allow the user to avoid attacks. Like all other charge-up moves, during the charge-up turn, the opponent can easily switch to a counter who can easily absorb the Skull Bash like Snorlax, giving the opponent momentum. It's a very bad move that should never be used.

Related Moves

Body Slam is a more powerful alternative which boasts a 30% paralyze chance.

Double-Edge is a much stronger option with recoil.
