Name: Shoulder Smash
Type: Fighting
Power: 95
Accuracy: 90

Description: The user recklessly charges at the opponent shoulder-first. Causes recoil (same as Wild Charge) but may confuse the opponent (20% chance).

Pokemon who can learn this: The majority of the bipedal type monsters a.k.a. Garchomp, Haxorus, Rhyperior, Excadrill, Charizard, etc.

I feel like there's no "decent" fighting move. There are either the Pokemon who randomly received Superpower or Close Combat or the Pokemon who can only learn brick break or low sweep. There should be a more medium strength fighting move that's not TOO widespread.

I kinda feel like the recoil AND accuracy fail makes it a poor move. Personally, I'd run Brick Break over it unless I lost some SERIOUS KOs.

Well 90 accuracy isn't THAT low. Plenty of commonly run coverage moves with worse accuracy (StoneEdge) are chosen because their counterparts miss out on KOs (Rock Slide). The recoil I felt just made "sense" given the move name but yeah, it sucks haha.

Maybe this could be remedied with a Submission TM/Move Tutor

Though which Pokemon would be able to learn it is a different story

Misses WAY too often...and it has relatively small distribution, especially if you're talking about learning via level up.

That's the other thing, it's really similar to Submission.

And yeah, Stone Miss is used but everyone b****** about it.

This is a good idea, mostly because I just fought Urien.
