Worst Pokemon Moves Ever
The Contenders: Page 4XW
Only good for catching shiny Pokemon
Wait flamethrower might as well put ice beam here
Noobs. This is one of the stronger moves in the games with a base power of 90 (formerly 95) similar to Ice Beam and Thunderbolt (which also formerly did 95 damage. Also, they all started doing 90 in Kalos) - Goatworlds
This is literally splash but in other languages
Don't say it doesn't exist it does.
In some languages splash is known as hop, that's why hoppip knows spalsh he is really doing hop.
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.V1 Comment
Pretty bad, cause all it does is to reuse a new item. I don't like this because usually, when you are using an item, like hyper potion, your health is like almost full.
No no no
recycling leppa berries are what got wobbuffet banned
recycle was too op they banned a poke because of it
No what the heck
This and Leppa berry cause endless battles
It is totally not useless
Wow, you go faster! Wait, you wasted a turn to go slightly faster...
You mean 2 times as fast? Use it with something with at least 200 speed and woop-de-doo it's the fastest Pokemon in existance. literally.
Say your opponent sends out a garchomp or whatever, and you send in your pokemon with encore. They use swords dance. You use encore, they are now forced to switch, since they will be stuck using a non-damaging move. This move does have its uses, especially on prankster pokemon.
Snorlax used hyper beam. minun used encore. Snorlax used hyper beam again! Minun fainted! See this move is useless if you use a badass attack like hyper beam or Giga impact.
This move is only really a pain if you used a status move like Thunder Wave and now you're trying to paralyse an already-paralysed 'mon. Chances are on an NPC enemy or wild 'mon who's actually dumb enough to use Encore you're just gonna spam them with Attack/Sp. At moves anyway, so this move is uselessV3 Comments
Any move with an accuracy of 75 and power this embarrassing, with no bonus effects, has no reason to exist.
It's basically the poor man's version of Body Slam.
This attack has low accuracy and is even weaker than Body Slam!
I can't believe all these stupid trolls... not only did they put lots of viable moves on the list, but now one of them decides to put A FAKE MOVE on here?
I have it. It is a dragon type move that raises all of the user's stats on the first turn. On the second turn, it one hit KOs the target - Goatworlds
If this move was real, then what if ditto uses it? Makes perfectly zero sense.
Sure you willV9 Comments
It isn't neccessarily that bad. At least I don't think so. It might be difficult to use with Pokemon that aren't bulky enough, such as Alakazam, but it's a good move overall for warming up.V1 Comment
It's better than Toxic and Poison Powder combined! (Okay, maybe not combined, but half bined. I just made up a word.) My Dustox knows it, and I use it quite the lot!
This move is so useless people don't even realize it exists. It serves no purpose except in triple battle, and even then, it's nothing more than a waste of a move slot that could hold some type coverage.
Thought it would switch party Pokemon.
THIS is useless, more than constrict
USELESS! Who uses a fire Pokemon against a water one anyway? Never used in the Meta Game.
Why isn't superpower on 100? seriously, you lose attack and defense though it's really op move. - Zume
Only reduces power of fire type attacksV1 Comment
The most situational move ever the other bad moves at least exist for comic relief but girlfriend actually thought this would be a good move yet unless you know exactly what your opponent will do it is terrible.
What? Why? This is a very good Water-type move! It has a base power of 60, plus, it has a change of confusing the target. What's even better is how you can get it early in FRLG!
What this is the best flying attack what
You charge and then attack you do have a high crit but you will most likely die unless you wast a move slot using a power herb.
