Regular old modest zam but im between these 5 attacks -

Charge Beam
Psychic
Focus Blast
Signal Beam
Grass Knot

im liking charge beam since its a nice boost to sp. atk most of the time but smogon recommends grass knot. whats the benefit of coverage for grass knot over charge beam?

The problem with Alakazam is his terrible defenses. If he can't 1shot something, he'll probabaly die. So it's kind of risky to be using a move with only a base power of 50.

That doesn't mean it couldn't be useful. If you got a few of those off, Alakazam would be ripping everyone to shreds.

Stick some Choice Specs on it.

Back then those were all Special moves so they were more useful. Now they would be a bad choice.

Focus Blast will cover dark for you. Why not give it say...shadow ball?
