Worst Pokemon Moves Ever
The Contenders: Page 3
Imagine if there was a type that worked against one or two other types but was utterly useless against all the rest. You'd never want to attack with it, right? Well, Synchronoise is basically that, only hitting Pokemon of the same type as the user.
Even with the boost to its power, it's so useless. The only Pokemon who really want to use it are Fighting types who have bad Sp. Attack, or Poison types. There are no poison types who learn it, and only Gallade gets it for fighting types - and if you are even considering special surprise Gallade, Psychic is better for the general STAB on non-fighting types. The only other use I could possibly think of is Conversion(2) or Camouflage, and those moves are unusable as it is.
The most hilarious thing about this move is that Umbreon, a pure dark type who is thus immune to psychic move, can learn it.V 1 Comment
Come on, guys, this move is far worse than Splash. All it does is play a useless animation. But unlike Splash, it can only be used in DOUBLE battles, and at least you can even use Splash in single battles. It takes up a useless move space. Magikarp's splash is at least a detriment to filter out the lazy from getting the almighty Gyarados, while Hold Hands is just nothing.
This move is only for allies with certain abilities. The pokemon with these abilities are Klink/Klang/Klinklang, Plusle and Minun. Or, with a hidden ability, are Electrike/Manectric, Mareep/Flaffy/Apmharos, and Dedenne. So yeah, literally useless unless you have a level 76 klinklang and another level 76 klinklang. Which I really hope nobody has.
Honestly I didn't even know this move existed
Here's the thing about this move: effects on the Pokemon that uses this move are passed on to the one that comes out. Did you use Swords Dance before switching? Your next Pokemon gets the +2 Attack stages. Used Aqua Ring? It heals your next Pokemon. High Evasion due to spamming Double Team? Sure, why not keep that, too? Substitutes? No problem! If anything, this move is so good it's broken.
This move is pretty bad considering U-Turn is a move to consider and guess what? U-TURN CAN DEAL DAMAGE! I MEAN, THIS SHOULD BE WAY HIGHER
I love it. But I can't remember if Furret can learn it or not! - Goatworlds
So, you can either have a move space used up, or you can press the Pokemon button. Hmm...V 3 Comments
It is a move that lowers accuracy. But it has low accuracy. It is literally worse than sand attack. I don't know why this exists.
This NEVER works for me :( I always replace it with something else cause it is BAD!
Whoever has howl, get rid of it! It shouldn't even be a move!
Stoutland uses howl! Now stoutland uses last resort! HE KILLS EVERYTHING!
It's not the worst move but it the worst of the moves that raise s your attack power plus not as many Pokemon can learn it if you compare it to how many Pokemon can learn swords dance which is ten times better. When it comes to lowering attack it's at the absolute bottom.P.S. bulk up is the best!
Roar of time is BADASS move why should it be on here!?!
What the fudge it's the most powerful dragon type move
Same thing I said about hyper beam. This move takes 2 turns, so it effectively has 75 BP per turn. @ dragon pulses in a row will do far more damage, and prevents you from being set up on.
WHY IS IT HERE WHY IS BIDE, KINESIS AND FAKE TEARS BETTER THAN THIS WHAT THE CRAP PEOPLE SERIOUSLY GET A BRAIN IT IS SO STRONG!V 6 Comments
Hm...it is not terrible, but it could be much better. Honestly, I don't think it's bad at all!
Worst reward for beating a gym ever. - Zach808
I can just knock you out before bide even activates
Useless. Every time it's uselessV 1 Comment
It is practically the move explosion, use these moves. If you absolutely hate Pokemon, mostly effective in a triple battle...for both teams! If you are in a more dangerous team rocket, teach Pokemon that hold normal gems then use them to blow up towns.
It's basically just a worse Explosion. Unless you're using a suicidal Snorlax or something that can't learn Explosion, just use Explosion.
When my Bayleef(or Meganium? ) Battle Vs Graveler, the enemy Graveler used Self-Destruct and I won! (LOL) - CubeaV 2 Comments
Yep, because blowing bubbles at the opponent is definitely going hurt them -_-
This move in real-life would only hurt if you decided to eat soap, and aimed for the eyes So every time a 6 year old swears, he can use bubble on his bully brother
This move is useless. Its base power is 20?! This move sucks. - Goatworlds
Bubbles can go in their eyes so that hurts themV 1 Comment
Hilarious on sturdy magnezoneV 1 Comment
Only good for catching shiny Pokemon
It's not that bad. "Togepi uses Roar of Time". Greatest moment in Pokemon Soul Silver.
Bad things about it is that your Pokemon might use memento and you don't even know it is coming, or something like high jump kick against ghost types
I swear if it says "Clefairy used Final gambit! " "Togepi used Helping hand! " At least I don't have bad luck with the move. - Goatworlds
Clefable used splash via metronome! But nothing happened! Togepi used v create via metronome! It's super effective! The foe's Metagross fainted!V 6 Comments
This is a great move it makes completing your poked ex way easier but at the same time it's terrible in a battle
This is useful for catching Pokemon. Couple with slew powder or stun spore! - GREATEST
At first, I thought it would decrease maybe 10 HP. Nope. Like, 5 hp. The only reason I even need my Nincada(sorry if you like Nincada, but I'm not a huge fan) is so it can evolve into the great Ninjask.
So what you can hit flying types wit ground moves just teach it rock ice electric moves
It makes the enemy 100 hit able with any move...V 1 Comment
It sucks I left Pokemon at daycare and it had stockpile and swallow and stored energy all having to do with stockpile and they took my epic moves
It's actually a very good combination with Spit and Stockpile. I guess it works better with bulky Pokemon (high HP, Defense, Special Defense, etc..)
It only works if you have stockpile on.
Even worse. If your Pokémon hasn't learned stockpile. Nothing happens. USELESS. - aarond90
To the person asking a two questions below:
I think it only works if you don't switch out. After a Pokemon uses Mean Look, don't switch out to another Pokemon to make catching easier- because the fleeing-prevention thing is turned off after you switch to another Pokemon.
I tried to use it on Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres in Pokemon Platinum. They all fled. Is there any way I can use this move to catch the legendary birds? Splurt it out if you have one, please.
I love this move, because my Mismagius just used it to lock you in while I use Perish Song and wait for your death with a Magikarp.V 1 Comment
Terrible move there are way better hm moves like surf and waterfall just put rock smash on a hm slave
Who cares it's better than scratch
What no this move is my jam. That and moves like Dragon Dance on a brick Pokemon while my opponent struggles to bring my 'mon's HP down in the mean time has always been a good way to beat a physically stronger opponent. Takes a bit of patience, but that's what Defense 'mons are all aboutV 2 Comments
