The only poke'mon good for this is Slakoth and Slacking because they need to recharge with it.

Other pokemon with it sucks.

Return is so much more effective on a CB Slaking (the most effective type of Slaking) than Hyper Beam. Return OHKOs about 96% of things that Hyper Beam does. The problem with Hyper Beam is that it leaves you unable to do ANYTHING. With Truant you can switch out during this turn. Against a computer this is fine but a competitive player can easily take advantage of this.

That being said, I actually believe that Hyper Beam does have its uses. I have used it effectively as a last-ditch move. It kind of works like a watered-down Explosion of sorts. It will definitely catch your opponent by surprise and could score you a KO.

As a primary attacking move, I would say that it is a bad choice. Other moves do a lot more damage-over-time and don't leave you helpless for a turn. The frontload attacking style is far more effective than charge up attacks like Solarbeam (without Sunny Day in effect) so I'll give it that.

Hyper Beam would really work well with Slaking, indeed. Apart from that, yes, it's basically a useless move.

yeah i see ur point but wouldn't double-edge be better than return in competitive battling cuz slaking will probably get killed fast anyways. wat do u think?

Hyper Beam is completely useless, mainly because you need to recharge. It's the same with Solar Beam and the whole "taking in sunlight" thing really.

its a 1-hit kill move or 2 hit killa move in Battle tower if you use it with charizard. If you think its useless with your pokemon, then obviously your pokemon sucks with it and that dosent mean its necessarily a crappy move.
