Rock moves are inaccurate because Rock is meant to be a strong attacking type with a high tradeoffBut then GF slapped Ground or another typing on every Rock type and made them such defensive glass cannons that they're not even usable
>>46786772>Stealth Rock got added in Gen IV so Charizard would die faster
>>46786777>Rock moves are inaccurate because Rock is meant to be a strong attacking type with a high tradeoffI refuse to believe anyone actually believes this, the moves themselves aren't even that good to fit that description, and two of the typings its SE against are mostly a joke.
>>46786787>Heavy-Duty Boots added in gen 8 so Charizard wouldn't be effected by Stealth Rocks
>>46787168Stone edge and rock slide are some of the most pervasive moves in the game
>>46786777But Rock moves don't have higher BP than other moves.
>>46786772>What is Power Gem and Smack Down?
Just like rock guitar solos!
>>46787954But they're super effective against several solid types.
>>46788056The problem is that any type weak to Rock is no longer solid (at least defensively) because of sneaky pebbles.A Rock move screwed over every other Rock move.
>>46788092That doesn't even make sense
>>46788056you mean two, ice is a meme and bug isn't solid at all.
>>46788125sneaky pebbles does big hurt on rock weak monstherefore pokemon weak to rock are defensively crippled
>>46787200you mean rock slide is, stone edge has been memed into oblivion and people are still afraid of using it.
>>46788287100 BP does not justify 80% accuracyanything 100 BP or below has no business missing without a crazy secondary effect
>>46788257Ice was intended to be a powerful check against Dragons. Now everything runs ice coverage so its w/e.Bugs are a joke though
>>46788287Stone edge is a stapple in all my teams, git gud, pusseDo you also run ember instead of fire blast?
>>46788398>Stone edge is a stapple in all my teams, git gud, pussesure it is lucklet>Do you also run ember instead of fire blast?yes
>>46788418>The state of /VaginaPussy/If you're not using the highest bp move, you're doing it wrong. I'll gladly take your points after my volcarona eats your rock slide
>>46786777>defensive glass cannons
>>46788378the high crit rate is its crazy secondary effect i guess
Too bad Charizard can't last longer in bed
>>46788630he means they have practically no defense
>>46790414Ice and bug probably?
>>46788287? Post eloStraight up lie, only on VGC cock slide is still used by mons that also get stone edge In OU you see RS only on an occasional excadrill since it doesn't get edge>t.competitivefag
>>46788092Fucking truth, also it cucked bug and ice types which caused Fairy to be immune to dragon
>>46788378You mean like a high crit chance? Or a 30% chance to flinch the target? Or slowing the enemy one stage?
>>46788125Sneaky pebbles makes every mon weak to Rock automatically bad defensively.Rock is now worse as an offensive type because everything it's strong against is bad.
>>46786772Nope. Charizard has a bajillion other type weaknesses to exploit.
>>46788418i would take an 80% chance of killing my opponent than a 0% chance with a weaker move
>>46791587the latter two are pretty goodhigh crit chance really isn't that crazy, though
>>46786772Rock moves are inaccurate because rocks are heavy and hard to throw or hit targets with
>>46792484But rock is its only 4x weakness.
