View Full Version : Pokemon Move Rate, Part 1-Leech eed

1st August 2006, 1:35 AM
(Mods, if this doesn't belong here, please move it.)

Welcome to Pokemon Move Rate.

Here, we rate the diffrent moves on a 1-10 scale. After a while, I tally up the scores and get an average of all your scores. That's when we start round 2 in a new topic. We continue until we go through them all.

Anyways, here's the first move I picked:Leech Seed

Effect:Saps 1/8 of the opponents health every turn.

9. It is a great move, but it can miss every once in a while, so yeah.

Yea i agree with starterlove1 ,a 9.0 it is,the other 1.0 is that it misses once in a while and the foe can switch to lose leech seed and it has 10 pp.

9/10, mainly because there's a limited number of Pokemon that can learn it and use it effectively.

The chance of missing doesn't bother me at all, considering it has a small chance of missing.

9 it's a useful move, but is easy for your opponent to get around (except in-game)

Combine it with Leftovers on a Poke with good defenses (and even Ingrain, if available) and you've got a nigh-unstoppable healing machine.

9/10, since it's possible to switch out.

Combined with Toxic it can be very useful. Or annoying, it justs depends on which side you're on. I prefer not to use it, but that's mainly because I tend to ignore using most grass types.

best move in the game, along with substitute.

it's not only the equivalent of a burn, it also acts like an extra set of leftovers for you. if it forces switches, then it means that their best counter to you just switched out and you're dealing with something easier.

8.5 Great move, but 90% accuracy.

9/10 Because Mainly it Works Great With Spore/Substitute etc

1st August 2006, 8:23 AM
8.9, I really like this move, it goes good with toxic/substitute. It's accuracy is somewhat dissapointing though, and the fact that only grass types can learn it is just sad.

1st August 2006, 8:24 AM
9, totally

I can't say how many times that attack saved my butt! =D

1st August 2006, 10:17 AM
8.5 it's a good move with Toxic, but the accuracy kills.

1st August 2006, 10:55 AM
Leech Seed is great especially on rain dishing ludicolo>> Leech Seed+Leftovers+Rain Dance+Toxic= Major damage and Major Healt sapping
9/10 Great move

1st August 2006, 11:06 AM
9/10 it can miss and only ggrass pokemon learn the move.

9, definitely. Special sweeping Sceptile gets walled by Blissey, but Subseeding Sceptile drains so much of Blissey's health that it's forced to switch. The accuracy hurts a bit though.

Oh yes, and it's a great healing method as well.

1st August 2006, 8:12 PM
yea i give it a 9 and well my reasons have been voiced several times above...

9/10, nt perfect 'cause it gets switched away. Also, a random liquid ooze switch in can wreck your day (not that many things have liquid ooze). I love seeing the CPU seed my swalot.

2nd August 2006, 4:10 AM
Yeah .. I will agree with everyone else ... 9/10 because of it's accuracy..

2nd August 2006, 4:43 AM
10 because of reasons WhiteWizard42 Stated. Forcing Switches is the best thing you can do in Pokemon. The accuracy is low but that doesn't stop Fire Blast

Yeah .. I will agree with everyone else ... 9/10 because of it's accuracy..

I agree with Shiny_Milotic, its good but its disavantage is its accuracy: 9/10.

Final Score:9.09
