Hydro Pump is way too risky for me. It always misses at the worst time.
Yeah, I've had some terrible experiences with it myself as well...though I mainly play Double Battles, so next best option for me would be Water Pulse, which has almost half the power of Hydro Pump. Surf isn't an option because of its much more consistent risk of hitting my own teammate, and my team is not strong on SpDEF aside from Aegislash.
