    Default Swordfight: Sacred Sword vs. Secret Sword

    So, out of the two, fighting type moves used by the Musketeers, which do you prefer?

    Sacred Sword:

    -90 Base Power
    -100 Accuracy
    -Physical
    -Ignores boosts to the target's defense and evasions
    -Learned by all Musketeers

    Secret Sword

    -85 Base Power
    -100 Accuracy
    -Special
    -Deals damage using the user's Special Attack stat against the target's Defense stat
    -Learned by Keldeo


    So, which do you prefer? I think Secret Sword is the superior move because it utilizes Keldeo's high special attack and can defeat foes like Snorlax and Blissey with ease.

    They're both really good moves.

    But only Terrakion has an especially strong Sacred Sword. Keldeo's Secret Sword is notable.
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    Secret Sword is better, because you get Sp. Def. bulky Umbreon, then you whip out Secret Sword, utilizing Sp. Atk too.

    Secret Sword can be learned by all musketeers via move tutor (as long as Keldeo's in your party), and my vote goes to that exact move as we really need more special-based fighting moves.

    I think that only Keldeo can learn the move: it can learn it as long as all the others are in your party. That condition might be the source of your confusion.

    Hmm... since Secret Sword can't be utilized with Swords Dance, I think that Sacred Sword is better.

    Well I only just learned about it lol but Secret Sword sounds mad cool. And it can ONLY be learned by Keldeo. I guess whenever the event happens and you meet it, as long as all 3 musketeers are in your team they'll teach it the move. Which makes it strange that they can't learn it if they're the ones that teach it.

    EDIT: I do feel the need to say that Sacred Sword is still a great move that gets work done!

    To me, Sacred Sword is cooler. Secret Sword is obviously a lot more useful for Keldeo, but Terrakion's Sacred Sword is beast.

    Starters of choice.

    Sacred Sword would be my choice simply because it ignores Defense and Evasion. Not that I use the musketeers competitively in battle, but I wish there were more move variations of Sacred Sword because it's powerful and when boosted it becomes an even more powerful force that is difficult to avoid, or rendered by the foe's attempts.

    Secret Sword is also good, but Sacred Sword is already a physical attack and has the effects stated above plus it's slightly higher base power. Also I think moves that are based on Special Attack and dealing Physical damage are over rated in my opinion.
