Favorite Iteration of this TM? - TM 10 - Double Edge VS. Hidden Power

Believe it or don't, Double-Edge. Hidden Power is more versatile, but without cheating or simulations, it's pretty much hit-or miss what you get. Or at the very, very least takes an incredible amount of time and/or luck to get the right one, especially at POW 70.

It's not that hard to get the HP what you want if you're breeding. For Legendaries, I wouldn't have the time to spend 72 hours soft-resetting to get the HP that I want for it.

Most players aim for at least a Base Power of 65, anyway.

Double Edge is only good on a few Pokemon. Getting a good Hidden Power is somewhat difficult legitimately, but given the versatility, I say it's much better than Double Edge.

I only use Double Edge on pokemon with Rock Head, which gets me thinking: how OP would an item that nullified recoil be?

I'd expect to see an increase in the usage of Flare Blitz and the like. <_<


Poor, poor Flareon.
