TM15 Hyper Beam Details + Uses
|Hyper Beam Move Details|
As a Normal-type Special move, Hyper Beam hits for devastating damage at 150 base Power.
The downside of this powerful attack is that it forces the user to recharge, which means doing nothing on the next turn.
Because this is effectively a two-turn move, Hyper Beam’s Power should be considered more like 75 per turn.
To get the most out of Hyper Beam, teach it to a Normal-type Pokémon with a dominating Attack stat. Snorlax can work, and Slaking is a natural fit for the move too, as its 160 base Attack is among Generation III’s best.
Hyper Beam also works very well with Slaking’s ability Truant.
Truant forces Slaking to frequently ‘loaf around’ and miss upcoming turns. When using Hyper Beam though, the ability will always use the attack’s recharge turn to loaf around.
This can be a great way to get the most out of Slaking’s dominating stats.
