Stored Power VS Moon Blast?

#1JudgeMasterPosted 12/21/2013 9:22:37 PM
So I'm running a Calm Mind Sylveon, and a buddy suggested i use Stored Power over Moon Blast.

Is Moon Blast still stronger after 2-4 uses of Calm Mind? OR Will Stored Power do more damages after 2 uses of Calm Mind?

Stored Power is WAY better on Espeon

I think you need 3 calm minds to do more damage.
Stored Power has BP of 20 for each stat increase.
2 Calm Minds = 80 BP.
3 Calm Minds = 120 BP
Overall, I think Moon Blast is a better choice anyway.

Deals damage. Power is equal to 20+(X*20), where X is the user's total stat stage changes that are greater than 0 (including evasion and accuracy), for a combined maximum of 860. Does not decrease in power if any stat drops below the level +0.

Stored Power starts at 20BP, and every Calm Mind will add 40BP. Moonblast has a flat 95BP, boosted to 142.5 since it's STAB.

20
60
100
140
180

You'd need at least four Calm Minds for Stored Power to deal more damage than Moonblast. Moonblast is almost always going to be the best option unless you're running a Baton Pass chain to give Sylveon extra boosts to bolster Stored Power.

You'd actually need a minimum of four Calm Minds for Stored Power to do more damage than STAB Moonblast.
