In Pokémon, there are lots of different moves used by different Pokémon. However, there are certain moves we don't normally see being used, heard about, or used in a meaningful manner. On the other hand, there are moves we see that are famous or used often. In this type of discussion, we shall discuss the ins-and-outs of the move of the topic, and there will be some base questions that would help you start this off. Every Saturday, a different move will be the centre of discussion.
Halloween is coming up, so this week we’ll be looking at a Ghost type move. Hex is a special Ghost move introduced in Gen V, and is notable for dealing double damage to foes suffering from a status condition. This means that when Hex is used against a statused enemy, it is the most powerful special Ghost move in the game. Something else to note is the move’s Japanese Name: Evil Eye, which is a well known symbol of bad luck in many different cultures around the world.Originally Posted by In-game Description (Move)
