i'd... probably remove? like, i get the point is to always crit, but the really low base power means i don't really see the advantages of using it over say, freeze-dry or ice beam in most scenarios.

Maybe make it deal more damage every turn, like Sandstorm did in Generation II.

Bide seems to be fine I suppose, maybe not that effective but could work in some niche strategies. I checked the page on Bulbapedia and found it amusing how the effect kept changing over the generations, though it was removed in Gen 8.

Keep. I'm not quite sure why it raises special attack by only 1 stage, when swagger raises attack by 2, but I think it's better like that.

Delete. It's... inoffensive as a gimmick, but at the same time it's as just extraneous and situational as one. I doubt anyone would miss it.

Keep it. It is an interesting item to throw onto a Pokemon during a casual playthrough and can help in training a competitive team, though they have added items like the Power Anklet and others like it for more specific stat training.

i don't play doubles, but it seems like it would be a useful move there

keep! it has potential for use in competitive, though I never really used the move much personally. but I assume it has its uses like getting rid of STAB on opposing Pokémon, among other things?

Change it so you don't lose the item permanently when using it in-game, as Fling is only really good in PvP situations where the item won't be lost forever.
