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
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
You'd think it would be slapping an enemy with your tail, but really it's just wiggling your butt.
That's exactly what I though at first! But no
Yeah why not be an attack move its dumb
The only damage it'll be doing is when the pokemon farts in the foes faceV 3 Comments
Ridiculous. Explosion and Self Destruct can be used when you have low health and obviously won't live. This does almost nothing if you are low on health. You have to commit poke-suicide at full health to do big damage.
Explosion and self destruct are better suicide moves
It's actually pretty good if you use it on a Shedinja.
Weak. Pokemon. Use. It. With. Them.V 6 Comments
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
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 stone
I mean catching themV 3 Comments
Roar of time is BADASS move why should it be on here!?!
What the fudge it's the most powerful dragon type move
Whoever did this does not know about pokemon
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.V 7 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
This is actually good,maybe not a competitive move,but still fun to use. - VillainnumberoneV 7 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.
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
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
It sucks I left Pokemon at daycare and it had stockpile and swallow and stored energy all having to do with stockpile and they took my epic moves
It's actually a very good combination with Spit and Stockpile. I guess it works better with bulky Pokemon (high HP, Defense, Special Defense, etc..)
It only works if you have stockpile on.
Even worse. If your Pokémon hasn't learned stockpile. Nothing happens. USELESS. - aarond90
It can be good and bad it's Topy-Turvy But Prankster Swagger Foul play or without Prankster
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 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
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!
