Competitive Analysis

Helping Hand is one of the most important moves that can be used by support Pokemon in Doubles. It boosts the target's attack for that turn by 50%.

This move has increased priority which means that it will be used first most of the time, and can guarantee that the target's move will receive a boost in that turn.

Helping Hand can be used on an allied Pokemon about to do a single-target attack to ensure its move will hit as hard as it can, or to an ally that is about to do a multi-target move to maximize its offensive potential.
