Default Re: Xatu moveset

Just to add to that, Faint Attack is good against psychich mirrors, and only equally as good as drill peck, as we've covered, but Psychic has one more weakness, and drill peck would be insanely good against, say, those annoying straight-grass types or bug types. Scyther is a fairly common pokemon, after all.

I woulda guessed Gyarados. And Dragonite blows, its all about Dragonair

Okay, so I carried out a test, with Xatu using Faint Attack on Espeon, and then Drill peck on Espeon using the psypokes damage calculator. This is what I found:

Faint Attack: Average damage - 96.99
Drill Peck: Average damage - 119.39

I did one further test, this time on a shuckle -- so I could find out which one would be better all round:

Faint Attack: Average damage - 21.12
Drill Peck: Average damage - 33.2

Well, I have to admit it - you guys were right! You've got me persuaded!
