I'd say it lacks power for in-game usage
In-game is all about hyper offense, and low-power moves just don't make the cut, with exceptions being only a few moves.
Now, Accelerock is a very good priority move for Lycanroc, but in-game, nope. It's already fast, 110 base speed is nothing less, plus, it sometimes just needs the extra power granted by some other move(s) to take a few KO's.
Therefore, I'll be recommending Stone Edge > Accelerock on it.
It learns Stone Edge at Level 60 in Sw/Sh, if that helps.
just had one more question, if that's okay. How much power would Accelerock have coming from a Dusk Lycanroc, considering it gains STAB and Tough Claws boosts?
Already answered that as a comment..
In competitive it as its only STAB is okay if you hv like an sd set up. If its ur only rock type coverage on ur team then dont use it
Swords Dance turns it into a literal demon, imagine the damage output of Stone Edge after a SD boost, it really gets those KO's on non-resisted Pokémon! Accelerock remains a weak move still though, even a Stone Edge that isn't boosted by Tough Claws is better.
I don’t think it would be good as the only STAB but I don’t know which is why I’m not answering
Exactly, it isn't good as the only STAB. You need a stronger STAB especially in-game.
