Top 10 Most Annoying Pokemon Moves

Don't you hate it when your opponent uses a move that you always hate. Well, so do I. Today, I'll be listing the most annoying moves in Pokemon. Enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Confuse Ray

This move drives me up the wall

We're looking at you Golbats! - SmashBall

When computer uses this move against you, you will always hit yourself 2-3 times and die before retaliate.
but when you use this move against computer, computer rarely hits itself and snaps out of confusion just after 1 turn!

Gawwd I hate this move that's why I always carry a lum berry
at least Swagger your attack raises right?

2 Attract

Annoying move. Except when I use my Audino team. - Crabmccrab

Kissy kissy attraction! A girl attract a boy! GROSS

I am so sick of Attract.

3 Protect

I hate people who spam this move

I hate this move so much! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

The reason I hate Pelipper.

Umbreon annoying tactic:
Toxic and spam protect

Umbreon have high defense so if protect fails, it should be still able to tank an attack - pikachu_boy123lol

4 Destiny Bond

The only situation having a zubat helps - Crabmccrab

Once again, screwed over by Wobboffet, and the worst part, you can't even escape, with his stupid ability. - SmashBall

The death of my blaziken. R.I.P - Sambazing


5 Swagger
6 Double Team

I live with this annoying move but, this move is the best attack in video games called - double team from pokemon (easily, because he raises your evasion) - mewtwo1

Use Double Team ONE MORE TIME! I dare you! - SmashBall


Ok Pro strats: Double Team + Brightpowder + Sand Attack + Snow Cloak/Sand Veil + Paralysis + Confusion + Attract + Flinch move from Serene Grace Ally = WIN - SeaDrag0nX

7 Stockpile
8 Sand-Attack

Why? Sand attack is just weak and you should not care much about it and you will never use sand attack for fighting the elite fours! - pikachu_boy123lol

This move ruined Pokemon for me.

Why... Snadshrew why you do this to me... - Crabmccrab


9 Rest

REST IS JUST SO ANNOYING. Its not helpful really, but just annoying.

Who else remembers Juan's Kingdra? If you don't know, Juan is the final Gym Leader in Pokemon Emerald, his special Pokemon is Kingdra. The moves are Double Team, Water Pulse, Dragonbreath (I think) and Rest. When it's in low HP, he can just use Rest. My god, it's annoying. - SmashBall

10 Counter

Who else gets screwed over, by Wobbuffet and his Counter? - SmashBall

The Newcomers

? Curse
? Trap Room

The Contenders

11 Earthquake

Just carry a pokemon with levitate (ability) or magnet rise (move), flying types are not recommended because pokemon with earthquake usually have rock types moves - pikachu_boy123lol

It's pretty much the most overused move online. - SmashBall

12 Toxic

When you're poisoned, every couple steps, your poisoned Pokemon loses HP, until it faints. This is ESPECIALLY annoying when you're doing Nuzlockes. - SmashBall

13 Spore

The move's accuracy is 100. So, you're almost guaranteed to go to sleep - SmashBall

14 Dark Void

I get that the move is cool and can be pretty useful and everything...but if it's the ONLY MOVE that your opponent uses on you throughout the battle it's infuriating. I just can't have a fun battle against a Darkrai anymore.

Literally put you to sleep and with darkrai ability, you are like screwed

And I thought I could beat that guy with darkrai... - Crabmccrab

15 Pursuit

Low level to firat party(with exp share this way can get more xp too) and changes. Pursuit. And fainted.

I hate this move when I am using Shedninja, it kills Shedninja before I switch it out, and also stealth rock and spicks, it is great for contering shedninja. If my oponnent used spicks or stealth eock and charging moves the next turn (fly, solar beam), I use shedninja to absorb the charging move. - pikachu_boy123lol

16 Recover

Recover Spam. 'enough said.

Healing moves are so annoying! - Martinglez

17 Fury Swipes

This is what dugtrio for me

18 Splash

Splash do not deal damage, how can splash take out your rayquaza and deoxys in oras? - pikachu_boy123lol

It took out my rayquaza and deoxys in oras - Sambazing

This just wastes your time

19 Hypnosis
20 Mirror Coat

me too

Charizard used fire blast!
Glaceon held on onto its focus sash!
Glaceon used mirror coat!
Charizard fainted!

This is what happend to me in brick bronze :( - pikachu_boy123lol
