It's like a built in handicap to give everyone at least a minimum shot. It's part of the game.
Except Focus Miss/Stone Miss, aka if the server hates you that they they keep missing :3

However that strategy side of it does wear out when it comes down to critical hits and 10% effects since most of the time these aren't actually intended to happen but leave a huge impact on the foe...
Pfft no, Thunder = reserved for rain, I don't think anyone uses Thunder outside of rain, afaik, knowing how common rain is in the metagame. :x And technically if they do, they're taking too much of a risk imo!

Pretty sure nobody uses those seriously competitively :x

Your own very Pokémon story is about to unfold.
You'll face fun times and tough challenges.
A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits!
