Top 10 Best Pokemon Moves


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Sacred Sword

This is the boss move that can beat virtually everything!

The legendary virizion uses it it is the best thing ever

Sadly not many Pokemon can learn this amazingly op move

Easily the best fighting type move

42Aerial Ace

Guys, calm down. It doesn't matter if its weak. It's weak for a reason. It is for when starting a journey, ya know? I mean like it would make sense if you start a journey and get a pokemon that knows this move. But, it wouldn't make sense if a pokemon you caught while starting your journey like a Burmy knew something like Leaf Tornado or whatever

It's good on Scyther and Scizor, the Technician boost gives it 90 power, and Scyther gets a STAB boost from it. - noo7na7

You must be watching Ash's Staraptor... It's basically a Wing Attack with lower PP and somewhat higher accuracy...

How just how did this move get on this list next to JUDGEMENT a move that is used by the god Pokemon.

Splash only works properly on a shiny magikarp that is at least level 85

Splash is so powerful that the health bar wraps around the screen

Best move ever

46Skull Bash

Would be better if psychic type move but I suppose fairy types do need strong attacks as well...

My blaziken has that move its to powerful that the roar of time

This is a good move but looks rubbish. Why is it even a fairy type move. Its just stupid

48Dragon Pulse

If you have a dragon type with a very high special attack stat then this is a move for you

Come on guys this is the number one go to move for all dragons.

49Bug BuzzV1 Comment

Most powerful base attack of ANY fire type move--DIE IN THE FIRES OF HELL GRASS TYPES!

V-Create has 180 base power, and Rayquaza can learn it through event. Mega Ray is even more overpowered with it.

I agree it should be Victini's sig move but the reason it isn't is because its an event move...

180 base power my god

51Leaf Blade

It is a great go to move on any Pokemon even if it's not a grass type

Probably the best basic grass move

It has a neat base power of 90 accuracy of 100 and can land critical hits more easily. pretty good move

This Bug move is really awesome it takes high damage and you get to change your Pokemon

Powerful move (one hit ko sometimes) and lets you change Pokemon to turn the tables.

53Self Destruct

A weaker version of Explosion (Which has 250 power, with Self Destruct having 200) - Goatworlds


Geomancy honestly is completely overpowered, and with power herb, it's a double quiver dance in one turn. You can defeat many opponents with it.

It's really good. I charge up Xerneas with this and then spam Moonblast.

This move makes Xernes so op and I hate to say better than yevtal

JEEZ best move ever

55Magikarp Revenge

I don't believe in magikarp's revenge

56Knock Off

Easily the best competitive move in the game. It rids the opponent of an often precious and advantageous item, and has almost 98 base power in doing so (That's Earthquake status). It seems like every Pokemon can learn in, and it hits any Pokemon, which makes trainers nervous about switching out. It is a staple in nearly every competitive team, and that forces you to develop a strategy for it. Any move you have to plan around deserves a spot in the top 10 at least.

I gets rid of the item the other Pokemon is and will get rid of mega stones in online battles.

The Pokemon move thief in my opinion is better, it steals he enemyies's Pokemon item away, the enemy Pokemon' item becomes your Pokemon's item, instead of being gone to the void

It is super power full and it can be any type of move depending on the plate arceus is holding. I enjoy putting on the pixie plate and killing op dragon types.

Only arceus can learn it, but it is boss. 150 damage with STAB, 100 accuracy

This move is only known by arceus. none of the other Pokemon know it. and that makes it the most powerful move. (which is real).

59Spacial Rend

This attack slice an entire building in half in the 18th film. I think it should be a little bit higher than this.

Spacial rend is much better than roar of time because there is no turn wasted afterwards

Palkia is boss how dare you make it so high on this list.

Palkia use it palkia rules!

60Precipice Blades

A extremely powerful move and the fact that its rubies and groudon coincidence I THINK NOT

Pretty powerful with a base power of 110 I think...

Not many can even learn this move plus the 90 acuarcey makes miss a decant amount
