I have a Hitmonchan.Should I teach it Drain Punch or Sky Uppercut
Drain Punch, definitely. With such Low HP, it'll be easy to restore it via Drain Punch, especially when paired with Iron Fist. Sky Uppercut isn't as reliable, as well.
However, that low PP for Drain Punch back in Gen 4 is annoying. If you are too reliant on using a Fighting attack, Sky Uppercut would probably be better.
