I'm currently hesitating between Iron Tail and Poison Jab...

If you're fighting a fairy with Kommo-o, the best play is to just switch out, honestly. Unless you're getting an OHKO, Kommo-o will get knocked out immediately after. Using a non-STAB move against a generally bulky class of Pokemon, you're probably going to come off second best.
You said right,Fizz.When I SOS chain for shiny kommo-o,I saw that how my Mimikyu knocking out them quickly.
What about Iron Head?
This is for competitive, right? What format?

Use poison Jab.Because iron tail has a low accuarcy, so it will miss sometimes.Poison jab can also poison the target.So,I choose it

Poison Jab would be a very good choice, BUT if you're going against multiplayer teams, choose Iron Head.

Iron head deals about a 1/3 chance for flinch damage, and is equal in power to poison jab.
Steel types have more coverage, as there are more types weak to steel then poison. (4/3)
Poison moves are also able to deal no damage as it can be a non affecting move, while steel is not.

Keep up the good work!
What do you think about this move? Good or bad choice?
