Low Kick or Brick Break for this Weavile?

0 votes

I've currently been using choice band Weavile on my OU team. I have been using low kick because I've seen others use it, but I was wondering if brick break would be a better choice. I know that low kick OHKO's Tyranitar, but It has trouble with lighter Pokemon. So, is brick break better than low kick on this Weavile:

Low Kick deals higher damage to Weavile's most hated enemy Heatran so for that reason I would say Low Kick is better. It also deals good damage to Ferrothorn, getting a 2HKO. It also hurts Terrakion and TTar harder then anyone cares to admit.

Choice Band Terrakion
252 Atk Choice Band Weavile Low Kick (120 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Terrakion: 406-478 (125.3 - 147.53%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Special Defense Heatran
252 Atk Choice Band Weavile Low Kick (120 BP) vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Heatran: 352-416 (91.42 - 108.05%) -- 50% chance to OHKO
Special Defense Tyranitar
252 Atk Choice Band Weavile Low Kick (120 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Tyranitar: 684-808 (169.3 - 200%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Standard OU Ferrothorn
252 Atk Choice Band Weavile Low Kick (100 BP) vs. 252 HP / 88+ Def Ferrothorn: 208-246 (59.09 - 69.88%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

As you can see Low Kick gives you a clear OHKO on each of these pokes, with a guarenteed 2HKO on Standard Ferrothorn.

Thanks, I'll go with low kick.

It's all personal choice. I would choose brick break, as that alone plus the high attack it has should be able to OHKO or 2KO a couple Pokemon. Plus, brick break stops reflect and light screen, a common move used by a lot of Pokemon.
Again, this is my opinion. They are both good, so choose which one you like better.
