I have recently evolved and am in the process of gradually powering up my one and only togekiss. Although I know that togekiss truly shines with charm, mine initially came with hidden power flying. I was quite excited to see that I had lucked out on a STAB hidden power, something I wished would have happened to my ghost and ground HP Ho-ohs.
I looked at the data on gamepress and was very disappointed to see that togekiss’ other flying move, air slash, deals the same amount of damage but generates energy quicker than flying HP in PVP. This means that there exists no reason to choose hidden power over air slash if I were to use togekiss as a flyer instead of a charmer. Air slash itself is quite an average move.
I wish HP had better stats because it could make the pokemon who have access to it very unpredictable in PVP, but as it stands it seems that those same pokemon are always better off with another move from their movepool.
Have any of you ever managed to make hidden power work for you in PVP? It can be on any pokemon.
