Top Ten Pokemon Normal Moves

The Top Ten

1 Metronome

Metronome is always unpredictable, one time when my Togepi used Metronome, it turned out to be Psycho boost! And then another time my Togetic in my Platinum used Metronome and it turned out to be Roar of Time! - PokemonFanForever

Well, if people would think common sense, this is the GOD of ALL moves. It can be anything, and it is hilarious when a bad move is picked, and AWESOME when a boss move is picked.

Metronome CAN be any. Move. It can even be moves like psycho boost or frenzy plant if your lucky.

Nice. Unpredictable. Awesome. Fun.

I don't actually think this move is even close to number 1 but it's much better than metronome. Metronome leaves way too much to chance so I'm going to vote on this move.

An excellent filler attack for any physical normal pokemon

Best. Move. Ever. For pokemon with very high Friendship! I use it so much with my strongest pokemon that every other pokemon just... 1HKO...

Return has 102 power at max happiness. Plus STAB moves. 102 x 1.5 = 153. That's already stronger than hyper beam or giga impact. Add a life orb onto that and you got 102 x 1.5 x 1.3 = 198.9! So Powerful! And some pokemon when mega evolved have an ability that turns normal type moves into STAB moves. For example, Mega Salamence. His ability turns normal type moves into flying type moves and have 1.2x power. Therefore making Return come out to a grand total of 238.68 base power! I didn't even mention the fact that Mega Salamence has a base Attack stat of 145!

3 Hyper Beam

Best of Pokemon is when they use this power

It's my favorite move - LananishMax

What why is this not standing in the list pf and body slam that paralyzed pokemon why these 2 are not standing in this list

It is great against ice Pokémon. it is very useful

4 Me First
5 Substitute

One of the best moves of all time!

6 Swords Dance

How is this in number 5? Sure, it sharply raises your attack stats, but it's useless. Worst of all, you lose one move.

Um...this move is god... Its insanely OP. If you can pull off three on a heavy hitter then you will one shot every Pokemon period.

Garchomp used swords dance, your ded

Sharply raises your attack. :3

7 Giga Impact

Dude why Giga Impact not number 1! It also have the power of 150 and 90% accuracy. Please put it at number 1.

This is the best.


8 Copycat

I love this move, your ded if your opponent uses it.

9 Attract
10 Shell Smash

Lowered defense and special defense don't matter as much when your attack, special attack and speed are doubled. Ridiculously over powered.

The Newcomers

? Sing

The Contenders

11 Protect

People just aren't defensive enough to care about this move! My Pelliper used this move and won the battle at one HP the whole time!

12 Fake Out
13 Body Slam
14 Quick Attack
15 Baton Pass
16 Recover

Better than wish and well its a recovery move whats better well...

Can't go wrong with a free big hp recovery at the cost of one turn.

It's Physcic Type

17 Splash

Magikarp 4 de win

18 Double-Edge
19 Rapid Spin
20 Extreme Speed

Really. How could you guys forget Extreme Speed? IT'S THE SUPERPOWERED VERSION OF QUICK ATTACK!

21 Judgement

ONLY 20 GOD WHY its only weakness is fighting and yes I'm talking about arceus now because it's the only pokemon that can learn it, its immune to ghost and all of its stats are 120.

Seriously though I know only arceus can learn it but really why did it have to take me to put this on here

In anime it destroyed a freeckin village and arceus wasn't trying!

22 Boomburst

140 base power, hits multiple targets in doubles. a pokemon with this move and a ghost type in doubles are a really good combination. like my noivern and aegislash.

23 Retaliate
24 Tackle
25 Facade

Like a Hyper Beam every time if used properly. 150 power and 100 accuracy and 30 PP.

When used properly it's a better hyperbeam

26 Mega Punch

In pokemon quest I have a perfect machamp. he knows mega punch and pretty much one shots everybody

27 Wish
28 Final Blowup

Weirdest thing on the list.

29 Sky Judgement
30 Tri Attack
31 Bind

A Normal Attack

32 Luster Purge
33 Explosion
34 Perish Song

This move forces you and your opponent to switch out their Pokemon in 3 turns, or they die. This move stops any type of setting up, and you can trap your opponent with some moves and abilities as well!

35 Swift

Is very shiny-Baby

36 Take Down
37 Double Slap
