Pick the Better Move #2: Overheat vs. Superpower

#11JoJoX200Posted 11/21/2012 1:41:19 PM
Overheat, because it let's my Infernape go Super Saiyan on anything, then smash something else with CC.

This is very tough. Overheat on Infernape and Arcanine is stupidly effective... but I'm going to have to go with Superpower. The Pokemon who use it are generally better. See Tyranitar and Scizor, and fighting is a fantastic offensive type and powerful coverage move.

Superpower and Braviary is awesome. Overheat to me is only like a last resort move if you're about to die.

You say Iron Tail won, but you bolded Submission and put winner in parenthesis next to it?

Superpower is better because it's well distributed and offers a powerful coverage move to many pokemon.

Overheat is pretty much outclassed by Fire Blast on most pokemon that can learn it. (Mixed Infernape and Rotom are the exceptions).

They're both hit and run moves usually carried by choice-users. But superpower sees more usage and, as mentioned, fighting has great coverage. I chose superpower.

Both are pretty good moves. So, I voted for Overheat.

Superpower was best in Gen III when it was a giant energy ball being hurled at the enemy. Now it's just a punch move.


Wait, wait.

Superpower was in gen 3? I always thought it wasn't introduced until DPP.


All the regis had the move when you encountered them.

It was 100% gen 3.
