Worst Pokemon Moves Ever
The Contenders: Page 3
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!V 1 Comment
I only like it when I'm the one using it, but when others use it, well, it's a whole new story. - BigBashful
All you need is Love
Skitty. Just... Skitty, man. Even in Triple Battles this is a pain, because as long as you're in love with an enemy 'mon, you can be immobilised no matter WHICH of the three enemy 'mons you're actually trying to hit. This moves makes me cry every tiem
I hate Audino for that reason only. Otherwise they're EXP chests that are cool - GoatworldsV 1 Comment
It lowers the opponent's Special defense by two stages! I don't understand why people don't like this move.
Debuffs in Pokemon are generally pretty bad - in game you're probably going to Ko the Pokemon anyway.
In competitive buffs cause sweeps, not debuffs, cause once you Ko the debuff is now gone and you need to set it up again, wasting a turn.
This may help in Double Battles when used on a Dragon Dance ally, but I'm not sure.
And simple is great for Dragon Dancers. This should be at least number 5!
It changes the opponents ability who caresV 1 Comment
It is good in ORAS to get items from the wild Pokemon without fainting them
I think it's a very good move. In earlier generations, I think it's just as useful as bite.
If your battling a pokemon that can mega evolve you can take its stoneV 4 Comments
Imagine if there was a type that worked against one or two other types but was utterly useless against all the rest. You'd never want to attack with it, right? Well, Synchronoise is basically that, only hitting Pokemon of the same type as the user.
Even with the boost to its power, it's so useless. The only Pokemon who really want to use it are Fighting types who have bad Sp. Attack, or Poison types. There are no poison types who learn it, and only Gallade gets it for fighting types - and if you are even considering special surprise Gallade, Psychic is better for the general STAB on non-fighting types. The only other use I could possibly think of is Conversion(2) or Camouflage, and those moves are unusable as it is.
The most hilarious thing about this move is that Umbreon, a pure dark type who is thus immune to psychic move, can learn it.V 1 Comment
Hm...it is not terrible, but it could be much better. Honestly, I don't think it's bad at all!
Worst reward for beating a gym ever. - Zach808
I can just knock you out before bide even activates
Stupid move that isn't even strongV 2 Comments
Come on, guys, this move is far worse than Splash. All it does is play a useless animation. But unlike Splash, it can only be used in DOUBLE battles, and at least you can even use Splash in single battles. It takes up a useless move space. Magikarp's splash is at least a detriment to filter out the lazy from getting the almighty Gyarados, while Hold Hands is just nothing.
This move is only for allies with certain abilities. The pokemon with these abilities are Klink/Klang/Klinklang, Plusle and Minun. Or, with a hidden ability, are Electrike/Manectric, Mareep/Flaffy/Apmharos, and Dedenne. So yeah, literally useless unless you have a level 76 klinklang and another level 76 klinklang. Which I really hope nobody has.
Only good for catching shiny Pokemon
Honestly I didn't even know this move existed
This NEVER works for me :( I always replace it with something else cause it is BAD!
Whoever has howl, get rid of it! It shouldn't even be a move!
Stoutland uses howl! Now stoutland uses last resort! HE KILLS EVERYTHING!
It's not the worst move but it the worst of the moves that raise s your attack power plus not as many Pokemon can learn it if you compare it to how many Pokemon can learn swords dance which is ten times better. When it comes to lowering attack it's at the absolute bottom.P.S. bulk up is the best!
Roar of time is BADASS move why should it be on here!?!
What the fudge it's the most powerful dragon type move
Same thing I said about hyper beam. This move takes 2 turns, so it effectively has 75 BP per turn. @ dragon pulses in a row will do far more damage, and prevents you from being set up on.
WHAT ROAR OF TIME IS BETTER THAN DRACO MEATEAR WHY THE HELL IS IT HERE?!?V 6 Comments
It is practically the move explosion, use these moves. If you absolutely hate Pokemon, mostly effective in a triple battle...for both teams! If you are in a more dangerous team rocket, teach Pokemon that hold normal gems then use them to blow up towns.
It's basically just a worse Explosion. Unless you're using a suicidal Snorlax or something that can't learn Explosion, just use Explosion.
When my Bayleef(or Meganium? ) Battle Vs Graveler, the enemy Graveler used Self-Destruct and I won! (LOL) - CubeaV 2 Comments
Yep, because blowing bubbles at the opponent is definitely going hurt them -_-
This move in real-life would only hurt if you decided to eat soap, and aimed for the eyes So every time a 6 year old swears, he can use bubble on his bully brother
This move is useless. Its base power is 20?! This move sucks. - Goatworlds
Bubbles can go in their eyes so that hurts themV 1 Comment
Hilarious on sturdy magnezoneV 1 Comment
It's not that bad. "Togepi uses Roar of Time". Greatest moment in Pokemon Soul Silver.
Bad things about it is that your Pokemon might use memento and you don't even know it is coming, or something like high jump kick against ghost types
I swear if it says "Clefairy used Final gambit! " "Togepi used Helping hand! " At least I don't have bad luck with the move. - Goatworlds
Clefable used splash via metronome! But nothing happened! Togepi used v create via metronome! It's super effective! The foe's Metagross fainted!V 6 Comments
This is a great move it makes completing your poked ex way easier but at the same time it's terrible in a battle
This is useful for catching Pokemon. Couple with slew powder or stun spore! - GREATEST
At first, I thought it would decrease maybe 10 HP. Nope. Like, 5 hp. The only reason I even need my Nincada(sorry if you like Nincada, but I'm not a huge fan) is so it can evolve into the great Ninjask.
So what you can hit flying types wit ground moves just teach it rock ice electric moves
It makes the enemy 100 hit able with any move...V 1 Comment
