>predict a switch and use the correct move to punish the switch
>it misses anyway
Am I stupid in thinking that anything above 90% accuracy should be perfect? Moves with lower accuracies than that tend to be more powerful, so the accuracy balances it, but missing on a 5-10% chance is complete bullshit.
Rock Slide would be stupidly broken if it didn't have 90% accuracy.

Even with 90% accuracy it's still broken as shit

You're right, but examples like OP's should never miss. At least that's how I feel about it.

I swear to god, once I lost a easily won match just because the autistic Rock Slide missed 4 times in a row.

I fucking hate rock slide, even more than stone edge.

I think weaker moves should always be 100%, like the speed reducing attacks, things like cut, etc. But Leech seed is a great move so it's somewhat reasonable to have 90% accuracy. I agree it wouldn't hurt to bump it up to 100% though.
I've lost many matches the other way around, getting flinched to death by Rock Slide.
Dude, I'm serious, half the times I used it Rock Slide missed. That move hates me.

Oh I believe you. Many doubles games are decided by the hax of Rock Slide.

you are going to hate me but since playing XY i think I have missed less than 10 rock slide. stone miss on the other hand...
I really hate it when playing dubs and both my Pokémon get flinched by Rock Slide. Happens so often.

>put toxic on nontypical user as a surprise factor
>it misses their wall
Are you implying that betting on the 70% accuracy to save you is a better idea?

Or are you implying that anybody is stupid enough to activate Gravity instead of a different strategy when a serious threat is present as the opposing mon that could easily one shot you with one of its moves?

Does Ttar even learn Gravity? Or would he have been switched in after Gravity to activate Sandstorm? Because that's the wrong order.

OHKO moves arent affected by accuracy. They are 30% flat, doesnt matter about fog or if your opponent has got off 6 double teams.

This fucking Clefable I have. LO Magic Guard is really fun, but christ almighty sometimes

The reverse happened the other day while I was fucking around with a mono-Normal team:

Spinda should have been dead but holy shit was that hilarious. I was using an Assault Vest so the rest couldn't do much (Wigglytuff and Espeon)

This happened with my Azumarill yesterday. Their weakened Lanturn waved me, and I used PUP since it was going to die of toxic damage

Then comes in Mega Kanga, they evolve and use Power-Up Punch instead of attacking me while I did backflips all over the place.

Still, relying on paralysis instead of killing me outright was cocky. I was at +1 and that didn't sound any alarm bells off at all? Their last mon was Scrafty, and they used Bulk Up.

I never will understand that jap guy's thoughts. I have it saved if anyone cares
That's why I powersaved 9999BP. Don't even feel bad about it.
90BP giga drain is better
10% chance of something bad happening in Pokemon might as well be a 50% chance.
>jump kick missed
Unfortunately I only have an ARDSi, no 6th gen BP for me.
Though going full on faggotry mode (Mega Kanga, Gengar, Scizor) usually racks up BP well until random shit fucks me up like brightpowder.

A fucking Shuckle used Power Trick and I kept missing. RIP that streak.
>Hi-jump kick missed
You have no idea how many times I lost because of that.

This made me remember of a match I lost lost because Focus Blast hit thrice in a row.
>of a match I lost lost

Well, ignore that second "lost"
This is the worst, because it's usually the only saving throw to take out a physical attacker that would otherwise sweep your team. And once you've missed one WoW, they're never going to let you get another chance to hit it again.
I thought accuracy checks were ignored in such cases? Say, Earthquake against Rotom-S would activate Levitate before the "it doesn't affect Rotom" message.

...Or at least that's how it would be based on Gen IV mechanics, I didn't play BW in English and I have no idea of XY in-game messages.
and that "of", while we're at it.
