I'm currently playing through Yellow and thought it would be funny to teach my Exeggutor Self-Destruct from the TM to take some important trainers out quicker. (Nothing specific yet) However, the fact that making use of Self-Destruct probably requires packing some revives that cost money provide a different argument.
Is it worth using exploding moves in-game? Or should I just make use of Egg Bomb on my Exeggutor instead?
It can definetely come in handy in many ways like saving an nuzlocke by sacrafiseing himself for the run,saving an close champion battle etc.But its up to you whether you want an egg bomb or self-destruct.
If you want to save money on revives egg bomb but if its fine using you limited money go self-destruct
