Opinions on Ultimate Starter Moves?

0 votes

What's everyone's opinions on the ultimate starter moves?

I'm kind of torn, because a few of my Pokemon have that move. They're really strong, but the next turn you have to recharge. I sort of feel like it's a waste of a move, so I've been debating whether to get rid of them or not.

Moves:
Blast Burn
Frenzy Plant
Hydro Canon

Ingame:
They are pretty good, since you could basically switch out the following turn, assuming you knock out the opponent's Pokemon.

Competitive:
They are not good. Trust me.
The reason? The recharging turn. When you finish off a Pokemon with an Elemental Hyper Beam, you must recharge. Giving your opponent a chance to finish you off.

I was planning to trade all of my best Pokemon to Black/White 2 to compete in the World Tournament. So it's sort of both "in game" and "competitive" at the same time.
Then don't use them.
You can't switch after using a one of the 3 ultimate moves, anyway. If you are going to use them, do Rotation Battles.
