Which is far better for Pikachu in Pokémon Red : Swift or Slash?
I really did not also bear in mind that Pikachu can find out Slash in Red. Did you suggest Slam, which it finds out normally? I'll assess all 3, however, for it.
Take into consideration the results, Swift has a Power of 60 with the capacity to strike every little thing (and also in the initial Game Boy, this consists of Pokemon that made use of Dig or Fly), while Slash has a Power of 70 with raised essential hit price. Bang has a Power of 80 (I assume) and also can flinch, yet has an inadequate precision at 75.
All are Normal strikes that make use of Pikachu's Attack stat, which isn't great. So you should not be relying upon the real damages power of these strikes as a whole scenarios. The majority of circumstances you need to be making use of a strike like Thunderbolt that makes use of the greater Special stat, which will certainly usually out harm an essential Slash from the get - go and also still have an opportunity to essential hit. Versus adversaries that safeguard well versus Special strikes, or especially Electric strikes, after that you would certainly service on your own far better by exchanging out Pikachu for a various, extra literally oriented Pokemon.
Swift is the most effective selection of the 3 . The distinction in power is really tiny, which suggests it is also much less offered Pikachu's weak Attack stat. A weak power action is best made use of to preserve the PP of your solid relocate obtaining weakened/easy adversaries, and also the most effective kind is one that assures success like Swift. Bang and also Slash both rely upon good luck (either in striking with Slam, or critting with Slash). As well as, it incorporates well versus Flying kinds that recognize Fly, given that you will certainly have the ability to strike them airborne, making it really functional. In addition, it's constantly trusted as a back-up versus any kind of adversary that winds up making use of Minimize, Double Team, Sand Attack, and also comparable actions that lower precision.
