    A bomb would still work better.

    I can imagine it now. All the Pokemon fans would be cheering while the others ran in terror.

    I don't really like Gastrodon but it is an unique pokemon to say the least.

    Finally something I like, lol. Gastrodon is kinda cool. The blue one is the cooler of them. Unfortunately, it is intolerably slow, but has nice HP and ... semi-decent Sp. Atk. Clearly meant to be a tank/wall. Maybe put it in a Trick Room team? Quad weakness to Grass kinda sucks though. As a slight sidenote, what is the point of Muddy Water even existing? It's the same type and power as Surf, but less accurate and may lower the opponent's accuracy. Seems stupid. Mud Bomb is .. an okay move. I really wish it could learn Earth Power though..... Holy crap it can via Platinum tutor. That's awesome. *runs to Survival Area*

    Gastrodon's only got one weakness, which is your mentioned Grass type, making it a wonderful wall/tank. Why? Because it's harder to take out if you don't have it's only weakness, Grass moves. Sort of like Blissey being only weak to Fighting (and there's nothing with Aura Sphere that can 2HKO Blissey if it adds a few SpD EVs, and max HP). Mud Bomb is a terrible move, Real-O. >.>

    Gastrodon is much better off with Earth Power than EQ, since it doesn't have to split EVs (they generally have Ice Beam and Surf, along with EQ; Earth Power Tutor really helps it IMO).

    Muddy Water doesn't really need to exist... I'll agree, it's a pointless move. Surf is just plain better, the accuracy drop chance isn't worth it's own accuracy being bad. Muddy Water was brought into existance for Swampert, methinks. ... Speaking of that, Swampert outclasses Gastrodon completely, as I mentioned before.

    Also, it's stats aren't good enough to be on a TR team. TR teams are pure sweeping, Gastro isn't strong enough in the offensive department. It's best as a utility tank on standard teams.

    I remember reading a warstory battle... Yeah, Stockpile Gastrodon completely threw off the opponent and they were screwed so bad. They couldn't kill it off, and it just kept Recovering off damage.

    As to the Muddy Water part, the game would be boring if the only moves in existence was:

    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Flamethrower
    ThunderBolt
    etc. etc. etc.


    I used to be the same such as, why is their Ember and such? Well the whole point of these useless moves is just to add variety. Also, their are some people who will throw in random stipulations/rules when they battle. So why not give them fun and variety eh?

    Well, Ember and friends is very necesarry for in-game purposes, right? As you said, variety is important; in-game and out. Surf compared to Muddy Water is just in different context IMO, since Muddy Water is completely not needed. It's not a bad addition to the game, but there could be better attacks, in both originality and usefulness.

    Just touching on the competitive aspect, compare Discharge to T-bolt. It's a much more sensible comparison than Surf to Muddy Water. Discharge has a higher paralsis rate, making it have merit over T-bolt in some situation. Muddy Water is just... always inferior, lol. I do see what you're getting at Wuddle, but I just thought I'd say this much.

    I forget, is Muddy Water a Ground or Water-type move?

    I love anything gross like a slug. Gastrodon is awesome. The Pink one is my favorite.
