Dark Pulse. You need that coverage.


Shadow Ball gives the same SE coverage while giving perfect Neutral Coverage with fighting moves.

Then why the hell does everyone run Dark Pulse?

EDIT: Did some research, it's for the flinch chance, and I don't think Shadow Ball hits anything that Dark Pulse doesn't.

Because Lucario has Steel STAB to hit Fairies

Why does everyone keep suggesting Dark Pulse when Shadow Ball is superior to it in every way?

1.It has Flinch Chance
2.Since Lucario has Steel STAB it doesn't matter which one it picks
3.Shadow Ball is not superior

If you are running Flash Cannon, then you already have perfect coverage with Dark Pulse, that is correct. In the past however, Shadow Ball gave better coverage, as the lack of fairies made Flash Cannon silly to use, and with Aura Sphere instead, Dark Pulse missed out on guys like Heracross and Toxicroak.
