Worst Pokemon Moves Ever

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Swords Dance

What no this move is my jam. That and moves like Dragon Dance on a brick Pokemon while my opponent struggles to bring my 'mon's HP down in the mean time has always been a good way to beat a physically stronger opponent. Takes a bit of patience, but that's what Defense 'mons are all about

62 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

65 Mean Look

To the person asking a two questions below:
I think it only works if you don't switch out. After a Pokemon uses Mean Look, don't switch out to another Pokemon to make catching easier- because the fleeing-prevention thing is turned off after you switch to another Pokemon.

I tried to use it on Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres in Pokemon Platinum. They all fled. Is there any way I can use this move to catch the legendary birds? Splurt it out if you have one, please.

I love this move, because my Mismagius just used it to lock you in while I use Perish Song and wait for your death with a Magikarp.

66 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.

Sure you will

67 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

68 Stealth Rock

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

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

69 Dodge it

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

70 Flamethrower

Wait flamethrower might as well put ice beam here

Noobs. This is one of the stronger moves in the games with a base power of 90 (formerly 95) similar to Ice Beam and Thunderbolt (which also formerly did 95 damage. Also, they all started doing 90 in Kalos) - Goatworlds

71 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

72 Recycle

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

73 Dragon Pulse
74 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.

75 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

76 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

77 Slam

Any move with an accuracy of 75 and power this embarrassing, with no bonus effects, has no reason to exist.

It's basically the poor man's version of Body Slam.

This attack has low accuracy and is even weaker than Body Slam!

78 Calm Mind

It isn't neccessarily that bad. At least I don't think so. It might be difficult to use with Pokemon that aren't bulky enough, such as Alakazam, but it's a good move overall for warming up.

79 Ally Switch

This move is so useless people don't even realize it exists. It serves no purpose except in triple battle, and even then, it's nothing more than a waste of a move slot that could hold some type coverage.

Thought it would switch party Pokemon.

THIS is useless, more than constrict
