Re: Surf or Hydro Pump?
I'll make a simple comparison between both moves:
If you use: Hydro Pump, Hydro Pump, Hydro Pump
is slightly the same as
if you use: Rain Dance, Surf, Surf
Yes, Rain Dance + Hydro Pump overcome both strages above, but if Hydro Pump fails you'll lose two turns, though.
If it's raining, so Surf power base will boost up to 142.5 (95 * 1.5)
