So, watching Indigo League

[1:34:42 AM] Princess Big Mac: > Scyther uses Quick Attack
> works like ranged Slash
[1:34:49 AM] Princess Big Mac: can we have that in ASB?

Bulbapedia says:

"When Jeanette commands her Scyther to use Slash, the next command was a dubbing error. In the dub, Scyther uses Quick Attack. In the original Japanese version, it was Swift."

At about 7:56 in here is the part in question.

Now, the change seems minor, but allowing Swift to be a potential ranged slashing move (see: Air Cutter or X-Scissor) definitely adds something, and all you'd have to add is a short clause saying that if you have claws/scythes.etc, you can slash them to create waves instead of stars. Maybe something about wider potential spread, but more prone to partials than full-on hits unless the Pokemon is of a fair size.

The world needs more partials anyway
