I don't think any thread like this has existed (at least since I've been here) and it's something I want to clear up.
Something that's come up a bunch of times when making teams is whether to choose a move that's more powerful or more accurate.
For example, on Heatran, I was considering going with either Fire Blast or Flamethrower. Fire Blast is much stronger, but it can sometimes miss. Personally, I go with an attack that's more reliable.
So what do you guys think is better? Power or Reliability?
By the way, Thunder and Thunderbolt is a different matter, as rain is so common now and Thunder is 100% accurate.
It's clear that it depends on the team and the pokemon; there's not much left to discuss. What I'm thinking now is to go for specifics; which pokemon would you use with higher power, versus which pokemon you would use higher accuracy. Make sure to specify the move-set as well.
For example, on Infernape, I'll generally go for Focus Blast over Hidden Power Fighting, becuase without the raw power of FB, Infernape might faint without getting a KO. He's too frail.
Anyway, that's the new discussion. Have fun.
