Wow, yeah! Skarmory does look pretty powerful in terms of that, especially with its immunity to Spikes and everything! The only viable Pokémon with both Roar and Circle Throw is Lucario (Pangoro gets it, but its weakness to Fairy is crippling, and Mega Kangaskhan is banned), who is much better off using other moves! So I'm not sure how that would work out, but it's definitely look working into!
And that's actually pretty valid reasoning, I hadn't thought of it like that. OHKO moves are pretty frustrating!
He might still be accessible, but I'd rather leave the poor thing alone. He's enormous, and he's pretty much obsolete at this point, so I'd much rather start over with him. I'd really like it if you could help me at some point, thanks!
And yes, I'd seen it before! But I'd never looked at it on Hydro Pump. I guess that really does make Surf the best choice there, it seems.
Hah, you can point that stuff out to me if you'd like! I won't get offended. And huh, so this can be done in-game too? I might actually look into that...
I did! I didn't spend a lot of time on it, but it's still there. :I
Also thank you for that bit from Smogon, that cleared it up quite a bit more!
