Sacred Sword looks like a solid move in PvE, as it’s a 3 bar move with crazy low cooldown. If tied with a better Pokémon than Cobalion, it could be an excellent Fighting type raiding move. In PvP, Sacred Sword looks like a Body Slam clone – you can spam with it, but doesn’t deal a lot of damage. Possible for shield baiting.
