Surf/Hydro Pump/Hydro Cannon for my Blastoise?

I don't know what permanent water attack to give it. Anyone?

What a totally excellent, amazing discovery...NOT!

Surf is considered better, because it has higher accuracy.

Hydro Cannon causes you to miss a turn to recharge, and 2 Surfs will do more damage than that. And Hydro Pump has low accuracy (like 70% or something), so if one of them misses then 2 Surfs will also out-damage it.

Alright, that's what I was thinking. Thanks. The Hydro moves are fun to use but suck in metagame

I'd probably use all three. Just using the same attack all the time gets boring.

With a mindset like that, I don't think just that would prevent losing.

Go ahead and give it both surf and hydro cannon. Hydro cannon as a filler and a one hit ko move for ingame.

Blastoise's ingame moveset is generally this

Surf
Ice Beam
Brick Break
Bite (for Slowbro)/Hydro Cannon/filler
