Than Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and Flamethrower.

I dunno why.

It's a risk vs. reward thing. Blizzard is stronger than Ice Beam, but has lower accuracy and PP. Do you risk missing, or go for a sure thing, if slightly weaker?

But I agree. I've always preferred to just use Thunderbolt over Thunder.

The accuracy kind of kills these moves for me.

I'd consider using them if they weren't 5 PP moves (I know Thunder isn't, so maybe I'm talking out of my ass)

For some reason I just don't like using 5 PP moves. That's why I'm really glad they finally upped Giga Drain. That move wasn't good enough to only have 5 PP

Yep, because 70% (or 85% in Fire Blast's case) means 5%, according to the game.

I seem to luck out with Fire blast. It never seems to miss.

...If you say 5 PP enough times it starts to sound really weird >_>

5 PP...

I think I need to stop now. Excuse me.

Please, after the battles I've had lately, it seems like they're all perfect accuracy moves.

Really, they're pretty balanced. Fire Blast has 85% and Thunder and Blizzard can become perfect-accuracy moves with the right weather.
