It is almost like metronome, but with only stat moves.

One good thing about Acupressure is that it can sharply boost Accuracy, which is great for moves like Stone Edge or Hypnosis. But that only has a 1/6 chance of happening.

The problem with it being random is that there are only 1 or 2 stats that you will want to boost at that time. If you are a special attacker, then an attack boost is useless. If you are facing a physical attacker then a special defense boost is useless.

From my experience, Acupressure is not reliable enough to warrant its use. Stick to moves like Swords Dance or Nasty Plot to boost your stats.

Why is there a random 't' in the sentence
Fixed, it was meant to be "to".
And accuracy boost on a Pokemon with accurate moves is just horrible.

I personally don't think it's worth it because it is unreliable.

if you want to boost something why don't you use the move that boost it directly?
