The proper name is quick claw, right? I know it's called p.claw on the old doodie 80% translated ROM...

Anyways! Everyone loves the power of surprise, right? And what is more surprising than having just used amnesia a few times, only to have that Smeargle suddenly spore you before you can say "Man that quick claw is so cool?"

Also, on a similar vein, anyone out there battling with MIRC, is it just me, or is the quick claw bugged so it makes you go first Absolutely Every Single Time??? Maybe I just had a lot of luck in a row... Hmm.

Anyways! Quick claw on something with thunder wave, stun spore, etc., that isn't already fast, can be an absolute wonder. You go first, paralyze. Then you don't need to worry about having a slow poke anymore! They switch in a jolteon to kill your slowbro (or whatever), you're out of options? Try to get off an amnesia before you get hit. Or whatever move you use, it can save your buttocks a lot.

I think quick claw should become almost (notice I do say ALMOST) as popular as leftovers. Please disagree with me! This is my first post, I want a good debate!


'Course if I'm just too darn great to disagree with, that's fine too.

My main use for the Quick Claw is to stick it on my Curse/Explosion Golem. Otherwise, I stick with Lefties or the Miracleberry.

And Steelers > Patriots.

What the man says is true. Quick Claw is god on the right pokemon. I've always thought Quick Claw was excellent on snorlax. It turns out it's also great on smeargle (for spore, destiny bond, and other fun) and it makes poliwrath a powerhouse. I use Surf/Dynamic Punch/Sleep Talk/Rest and it ownz everything short of starmie, slowbro, and possibly jumpluff. just try it out if you doubt the claw. DR. CLAW!!!! GOOOOooooo GaDgEt!!!!!!

I don't think that will happen- counterattacking moves always go 2nd, Quick Claw or not.

23.4% chance of working. Enough said. And, it disrupts recovery cycles.

Really? That good a chance of quick claw working? I sure wouldn't of thunk it, guess that explains why Ash's Snorlax got the go first a few times in a row and I felt the game was cheating or somethin...

Jolt: Tyranitar + BP'd Agility + BP'd Swords Dandce + BP'd Barrier + BP'd Growth + BP'd Amnesia + Sub + Scope Lens = .....

Or...

Tyranitar + AP boost + Sub + Scope Lens = a lot less work
 


Posted by cmsnrub25 (Member # 1551) on 01-25-2002, 08:08 AM:
 
Sub + Tyranitar = illegal unless passed.

Tyranitar + Machamp = Machamp.

I repeat: Steelers > all.

Lvl 5 Koffing (or Gastly) + Destiny Bond (beats Explosion, hands down) + Quick Claw + Luck = Shamage.
