Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is learning Trick or Treat worth it?

My Gourgeist knows it and I was wondering if I switch it with something else or not.

Competitive or In-Game?
In-game, but I guess you can also answer in regards to competitive if you want.
Competitive: Not really worth it
In-Game: Maybe, since you can make your opponent be a Ghost Type, then you can hit your opponent with a STAB Ghost type move for super effective damage,
I think I have a good competitive approach to it, but I'm not gonna bother. xD
But yeah, in-game it could be great since 'cos then Gourgeist can use a STAB Ghost move, then for Normal types you could just use a Fighting-type move. :D

I have found Trick-or-Treat to be very useful, due to making Pokemon weak to your Phantom Force who would otherwise have immunities. It also can shut down Dark types due to the added weakness and gives Gourgest great coverage.

Competitvely, I wouldn't recommend it, due to Pokemon already dropping you to low HP the turn you use the move.

Is this the same with Forest's Curse?
Yeah, basically.

This makes Scizor w/ Forest Curse 6x Weak to Fire! :O
6 or 8 (2X2X2=8)?
I wouldn't say forests curse is as useful in a single battle, but Trick or Treat I find very useful.
