Most Overrated Pokemon MovesGREATEST Some of these may be good, but just too over-hyped.
The Top Ten
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
This move is worse than splash since it normal type so it beats nothing and during recharge, the opposing pokemon can set up or kill you so it is a waste of a move slot and splash can pivot since you can switch out afterwards and it's z move boosts attack by three stages but more useful than Hyper Beam - Masterofal
Roar of Time as well! Hate it when Dialga uses this!
That move sucks and only noobs use it but it costs your game
Pikachu use thunderbolt! Pikachu did a slightly above average amount of damage! Seriously, it's not bad... It's just over hyped. - GREATEST
Ash: PIKACHU USE THUNDERBOLT!
I think I've said enough
This move has high base power and very few pokemon learn Aura Sphere though it has low accuracy and it is good coverage move too - Masterofal
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
Since this move does recoil damage, it's automatically not that good. Also, it's normal type. - GREATEST
This is the water type Hyper Beam. At least it can be super effective. - GREATEST
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
Almost every team uses it since it's so good, that's why you need a spinner/defogger to remove this - Masterofal
The Charizard haters give this move WAY too much attention.
This move is good, but it gets too much hype... Way too much hype. - GREATEST
This attack is terrible why is it popular - legendary
65 power... Only 15 pp... 95 accuracy... Yeah... Good... Move... Seriously, crunch beats all of the "fang" moves. Crunch has 80 power, and it actually has 100 accuracy. It also has 15 pp, so it's just better. - GREATEST
It's not bad... But with all the hype... - GREATEST
WAY better than that f#$%@load aerial ace
It got nerfed but it's still very strong so it needs to be nerfed more - Masterofal
Only 60 damage... At least it never misses... - GREATEST
It's really good, but that's why it's overrated.
Too weak to be overrated
This is by far the most overrated move in the game first off the only reason people like this is because it's the signature move of Greninja. An overrated Pokemon. On Pokemon showdown I see this on every greninja and I think to myself why. So it's +1 priority but Greninja already has base 122 speed but wait, Accelgor gets this move in ORAS it's even faster than greninja. So next reason why this move is bad it's a 15 base power move that hits 2-5 move its max base power is 75 which only happens 12.5% of the time. Half the time it's less than 50 base power you know what used to have 50 base power before gen 7? TACKLE! And since Greninja has protein it gets stab from all moves so half the time (12.5% of the time in gen 7) you're better off using tackle on Greninja
Most overrated Z-move ever
Z-moves are very overrated, Mewtwo using a Z-move for his best Pokémon move named: shattered psyche.
Time for learn protect, gyarados and thrash too...
