Rock moves are inaccurate because Rock is meant to be a strong attacking type with a high tradeoff
But then GF slapped Ground or another typing on every Rock type and made them such defensive glass cannons that they're not even usable

>Rock moves are inaccurate because Rock is meant to be a strong attacking type with a high tradeoff
I 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.

>>46787168
Stone edge and rock slide are some of the most pervasive moves in the game
>>
>>46786777
But Rock moves don't have higher BP than other moves.
>>
>>46786772
>What is Power Gem and Smack Down?
>>
Just like rock guitar solos!
>>
>>46787954
But they're super effective against several solid types.
>>
>>46788056
The 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.
>>
>>46788092
That doesn't even make sense
>>
>>46788056
you mean two, ice is a meme and bug isn't solid at all.
>>
>>46788125
sneaky pebbles does big hurt on rock weak mons
therefore pokemon weak to rock are defensively crippled
>>
>>46787200
you mean rock slide is, stone edge has been memed into oblivion and people are still afraid of using it.
>>
>>46788287
100 BP does not justify 80% accuracy
anything 100 BP or below has no business missing without a crazy secondary effect
>>
>>46788257
Ice was intended to be a powerful check against Dragons. Now everything runs ice coverage so its w/e.
Bugs are a joke though
>>
>>46788287
Stone edge is a stapple in all my teams, git gud, pusse
Do you also run ember instead of fire blast?

sure it is lucklet

yes

>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

>>
>>46788378
the high crit rate is its crazy secondary effect i guess
>>
Too bad Charizard can't last longer in bed
>>
>>46787168
which types
>>
>>46788630
he means they have practically no defense
>>
>>46790414
Ice and bug probably?
>>
>>46788287
? Post elo
Straight 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
>>
>>46788092
Fucking truth, also it cucked bug and ice types which caused Fairy to be immune to dragon
>>
>>46788378
You mean like a high crit chance? Or a 30% chance to flinch the target? Or slowing the enemy one stage?
>>
>>46788125
Sneaky 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.
>>
>>46786772
Nope. Charizard has a bajillion other type weaknesses to exploit.
>>
>>46788418
i would take an 80% chance of killing my opponent than a 0% chance with a weaker move
>>
>>46791587
the latter two are pretty good
high crit chance really isn't that crazy, though
>>
>>46786772
Rock moves are inaccurate because rocks are heavy and hard to throw or hit targets with
>>
>>46792484
But rock is its only 4x weakness.
