Your Reaction: Sky Attack now raises speed on the charge turn

#1JoJoX200Posted 8/28/2013 6:22:02 AM
Today, while playing Pokemon XD, I remembered that Skull Bash raises your defense on the charge turn. How would you react if Sky Attack got the same treatment, but rises speed instead of defense? Would the move get more use? Would it still be bad?

Personally, I think I'd use it. Sky Attack has always been a cool move with the high power, flinch chance AND higher chance of critical hits. Obviously, it'd still be a risky move, but I'd try and force a switch before using it anyway. The speed boost can help to attack first the following turn.

It still wouldn't get usage because it's a 2-turn move.

I'd use it. Makes slow but strong pokemon like Delibird more useful.

I'd use it more actually :)

that actually wouldnt be to bad. maybe raises attack and speed one stage. then you attack the next turn.

I would use it more, I think. That would make it more worthwhile, since if the user is a bit slower than the opponent the speed boost will allow them to strike first the next turn without getting hit.

I would say Priority + 1 on the attack turn instead of +1 speed on the charge turn.

It makes sure the flinch chance comes into play sans additional priority, and it isn't useless on faster pokes, as they will out-speed the opponent's priority.
