Should I teach surf to Blastoise?

I have a Wartortle right now but am obviously going to evolve him into a Blastoise sooner or later and I just got the HM Surf. Should I teach it to him? Or use another move for that slot?

Well it depends. If you're planning on using this blastoise for just the single player, then I've always thought of surf as a great water move that hits pretty hard for an HM and has great accuracy. If you want to go the competitive battling route then another move like hydro pump would be a better choice. Then again you can always have the move deleted when it's of no further use to you.

There is allays move deleter. I think surf is a good move (100% accuracy, 95 base power). It can be slightly problematic in doubles (unless you had a partner with water absorb or dry skin, and then it would be really useful). Also it hits both enemies which is good....

So yeah

Im pretty sure Blastoise should have Surf in almost every situation, unless your going Physical for some reason.

On something with just 85 special attack, the extra power from Hydro Pump is certainly worth consideration at times, especially if it nets important (X-1)HKO's that Blastoise's piddly Surf won't get.

It's not that, just the way he's making a seemingly general statement that's totally mixed up, IMO hydro pump is better than surf ingame

TC, in game is fine.. Especially if he ends up being your main water pokemon for traveling in game...

Besides, you can always delete it after, with each visit to the Move Deleter.
