You forgot fell stinger
Doesn't belly drum just maximize it, even if your attack was lowered?
@AK47 this question is from 2012; Fell Stinger didn’t exist. In addition, this list only seems to include moves that are purely status based, which would mean Fell Stinger doesn’t actually belong.
@Sylveon yes you’re right, I will update the answer.
