My Chesnaught is on lvl 53 and is about to learn Wood Hammer (lvl 55), and I was wondering which one would be better. Wood Hammer has higher damage but includes recoil damage, I don't know which one to pick!
Chesnaught's moveset is:

  • Low Sweep (TM)
  • Seed Bomb
  • Rock Tomb (TM)
  • Spiky Shield

I'm keeping Low sweep for now because it is currently his most powerful fighting-type move, Spiky Shield is not that great but I find it quite useful in competitive battling. I'll probably replace rock tomb because it's a TM, but I might need the rock move and it's a waste of having 2 grass moves :(

I simply cannot decide which is why I crawl to you fine lads for help.

I'd go for Wood Hammer. You've got reliable STAB (albeit weak), and you'll probably need Rock Tomb for Flying types. If it were me, I'd replace Seed Bomb with Wood Hammer.

Thanks for the help, by the way does anyone know what level Chesnaught learns hammer arm and close combat?
