Hydro Cannon isn't that good anyway since it has that cooldown.
Just using Waterfall twice would deal much more damage.
Waterfall is better because it hits more often.

No. Feraligator can run mixed, but will make better use of physical moves. Go with Waterfall or Aqua Tail, two of either hit harder than one Hydro Cannon.

  • Feraligatr has higher Attack than he does Special Attack, thus using Hydro Cannon would be a waste of a move slot. Consider applying a Physical Water move, or something for type weakness coverage, such as Waterfall (which can double as an HM if you're playing in-game)

  • Hydro Cannon itself is a bad move, due to the fact that, despite it's high power, it has to recharge after use, basically stripping you of a whole turn, which is why you should choose other moves. Aqua Tail has a power of 90 which you can use twice, so it's technically stronger than Hydro Cannon (90 + 90 = 180, versus 150).

So overall, no, Feraligatr is not worthy of learning Hydro Cannon unless you're using it ingame, and solely because it's a cool awesome move. Other than that, there is no reason to use those moves.
