Most Overrated Pokemon Moves

Some of these may be good, but just too over-hyped.

The Top TenXW

1Hyper Beam

Hyper beam is the definition of overrated. Sure, it has 150 power... But it is normal type, so you cannot get it super effective. Also, that recharge turn makes you a sitting duck. - GREATEST


Pikachu use thunderbolt! Pikachu did a slightly above average amount of damage! Seriously, it's not bad... It's just over hyped. - GREATEST

3Focus Blast

If u need a fighting type special attack, go with Aura Sphere. Otherwise, Close Combat or Superpower.

The accuracy makes this move... Plunge into the realm of utter okayness. - GREATEST

4Double Edge

Since this move does recoil damage, it's automatically not that good. Also, it's normal type. - GREATEST

5Hydro Cannon

This is the water type Hyper Beam. At least it can be super effective. - GREATEST

6Razor Wind

Only 80 damage for a two turn attack? It doesn't even protect you for one turn! At least this one isn't super hyped. - GREATEST

7Stealth Rock

This move is good, but it gets too much hype... Way too much hype. - GREATEST

8Fire FangV1 Comment
9Knock Off

It's not bad... But with all the hype... - GREATEST

10Aerial Ace

Only 60 damage... At least it never misses... - GREATEST

The Contenders

12Draco Meteor

It's really good, but that's why it's overrated.
