Worst Pokemon Moves Ever

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Metronome

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. - Villainnumberone

62 Magikarp's Revenge

I can't believe all these stupid trolls... not only did they put lots of viable moves on the list, but now one of them decides to put A FAKE MOVE on here?

I have it. It is a dragon type move that raises all of the user's stats on the first turn. On the second turn, it one hit KOs the target - Goatworlds

If this move was real, then what if ditto uses it? Makes perfectly zero sense.

What they meant by putting up this move is this:

Magikarp's revenge= magikarp evolving into gyarados

63 Gravity

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...

64 Swallow

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

65 Self-Destruct

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) - Cubea

66 Swagger

It can be good and bad it's Topy-Turvy But Prankster Swagger Foul play or without Prankster

67 Flatter
68 Tickle V 1 Comment
69 Quash

Useless in single battle, it makes the target go last if it hasn't move.

One of the most ludicrously specific, difficult to utilize conditions in the game

70 Stealth Rock

I dare you to try competitive battling without this move. Seriously what troll put this here?

It is good but I prefer toxic spikes - Enderninja327

H-h-how? This is a good move! Why is this on here?

71 Dodge it

Not a move. it's just something the pokemon can do in the anime and is not a move. - Villainnumberone

72 Egg Bomb
73 Hop

Oh, yes, the literal translation of the Japanese name of splash, the move that is the most common result of metronome in the anime. - Villainnumberone

This is literally splash but in other languages

This doesn't exist - Goatworlds

The danish name means splash.
the dutch name means hot shot.
the chinese name means leaping.
finnish name's translation:splash
translation of the move's french name:dip meaning a brief swim
the german name means splash
the greek name means plop
the korean name of the move means bounce
the polish name means splash
the brazilian portuguese name means sprinkled
the portuguese name (portugal) means splash
the russian name means splash
the english name is splash
the serbian name means jumping
the spanish name means splatter
the swedish name means splash attack
the vietnamese name means dance - Villainnumberone

75 Recycle

Recycling berries and other items is useful - Enderninja327

Pretty bad, cause all it does is to reuse a new item. I don't like this because usually, when you are using an item, like hyper potion, your health is like almost full.

No no no
recycling leppa berries are what got wobbuffet banned
recycle was too op they banned a poke because of it

No what the heck
This and Leppa berry cause endless battles
It is totally not useless

76 Dragon Pulse
77 Agility

Wow, you go faster! Wait, you wasted a turn to go slightly faster...

You mean 2 times as fast? Use it with something with at least 200 speed and woop-de-doo it's the fastest Pokemon in existance. literally.

78 Astonish

Finally something I agree on. I don't really like this move either. On most Ghost-types I replace the move automatically upon learning something new.

It's weakest than tackle. There's a small chance the enemy's Pokemon will flinch, but it's do small damage

79 Fissure

Same with Sheer Cold

Ah, this move always kills in one hit. I kid you not, this move is MEANT to do that. When it hits the game says "It's a one hit KO! " - Goatworlds

No guard/mind reader and fissure or another OHKO move is a pretty solid stategy - Enderninja327

80 Encore

Say your opponent sends out a garchomp or whatever, and you send in your pokemon with encore. They use swords dance. You use encore, they are now forced to switch, since they will be stuck using a non-damaging move. This move does have its uses, especially on prankster pokemon.

Snorlax used hyper beam. minun used encore. Snorlax used hyper beam again! Minun fainted! See this move is useless if you use a badass attack like hyper beam or Giga impact.

This move is only really a pain if you used a status move like Thunder Wave and now you're trying to paralyse an already-paralysed 'mon. Chances are on an NPC enemy or wild 'mon who's actually dumb enough to use Encore you're just gonna spam them with Attack/Sp. At moves anyway, so this move is useless

Competitve vs twave
send in motor drive electivire
now you're up 1 speed tier and get a turn to setup swords dance or whatever
