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

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

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.

Nice. Unpredictable. Awesome. Fun.

2 Return

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.

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!

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...

3 Hyper Beam

My sis loves Eevee. Please say that Eevee can learn Hyper Beam.

Lol everyone knows I'm joking( but in da anime its god)


It is great against ice Pokémon. it is very useful

4 Me First

This move is amazing and underrated. It literally copies your opponent's move and boosts the power by 50%... so basically a stantler can use roar of time if the opponent is dialga

5 Swords Dance

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.

Sharply raises your attack. :3


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

6 Giga Impact

Solid move, it's a staple

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.

7 Substitute

Substitute is just execelent on most pokemon, it's just riduculous

One of the best moves of all time!

8 Copycat

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

9 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!

10 Splash

Splash is very op #kingmagicarp

Magikarp 4 de win

The Contenders

11 Extreme Speed

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

12 Recover

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

It's Physcic Type

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

13 Attract
14 Shell Smash

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

15 Fake Out

The absolute perfect way to start a fight

16 Quick Attack
17 Double-Edge
18 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.

19 Body Slam
20 Baton Pass
21 Rapid Spin
22 Judgement

20 what

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!

23 Facade

When used properly it's a better hyperbeam

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

24 Retaliate
25 Tackle
26 Mega Punch

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

27 Tri Attack

In gen 4 add a togekiss and the ability serene grace have the item silk scarf and you got a combo that is annoying to deal with like I beat the whole game with just this combo

28 Swift

Is very shiny-Baby

29 Wish
30 Final Blowup

Weirdest thing on the list.

31 Sky Judgement
32 Luster Purge
33 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!

34 Take Down

It is strong its hurt your pokemon

35 Bind

A Normal Attack

36 Explosion
37 Double Slap
38 Sing
39 Flash
40 Strength
