The former is better because you're losing more base power than you're gaining in accuracy.

A good example is the move Inferno: 100 base power, 75 accuracy. Compare that to Flamethrower, which gains 25 points of accuracy for a negligible 5 point loss in base power.

Focus Blast is a great move and the accuracy is what keeps it in check. And, I know, you're probably thinking, but EQ is 100 base power and 100 accuracy! Remember that move is kept in check by the sheer number of Pokemon immune to Ground and the fact it hurts you own team members in double and triple battle.s


Inferno has 50 accuracy. It's similar to Zap Cannon.

I don't know if it is the worst, but it has caused me to lose so many times that I don't have any of my pokemon learn it anymore.

Lol yeah its pretty damn frustrating. Especially if you have a Pokemon with no choice, but to use it.

At least focus blast is something. Life without Focus Blast would be boring. Do you not agree?

It's not even close to being the worst move ever.


Not even close to hitting either.
