    Default Most hated moves?

    The most annoying move I know. Sand-Attack. I'm going trough my Sapphire play trough with my level 33 Marshstomp, and a team aqua leader keeps using sand attack with it's lvl 24 mighteyna. :s How about you guys?

    Already lost 7 times.. I manage to kill the mighteyna, but the Golbat keeps killing me because I keep missing every move I have.

    - Rock Tomb
    - Mud Shot
    - Rock Smash

    Personally, Fake Out is my most hated move in the game. So obnoxious...

    And you're aware that switching resets stat stages, yes?

    Just switch out, even if it's into fodder. Besides, you only have 3 levels till your Marshtomp evolves and you'll pwn everything.

    Soon I'll have you, after years and years XD

    It's not bad I don't really hate it. Just kill Mighteyna before it can use too much sand attack. If you keep missing, well switch out because your stats drop reset. You could also just train your other Pokemon and make them stronger.

    I hate Double Team more.

    Mostly because it has the same effect, only you can't cancel it out as easily and every single Pokemon in the game can use it.

    Quite possibly the stupidest strategy I've seen people relying on for online battles is using Double Team/Minimize and Substitute together to make it almost impossible to damage their Pokemon.

    The random Pokemon in the PWT and Battle Subway that rely on Double Team alone are annoying enough.

    I can't stand Sand Attack but my most hated moves are Protect and Detect. I don't even understand what's the point of using those moves if you're just gonna get knocked out anyways. Makes no sense to me at all.

    really, an annoying double team team would have to be chansey and whimsicott in a double battle. Eviolate + Snatch + Cotton Guard = Nothing. My lucario did only 1/3 damage with CC. what's worse? I was busy on the others, and it used DT. When Latios came out, it used Psych Up. You can guess how the rest happened...

    I think double team is much worse as the opponent becomes more evasive instead of your pokemon losing accuracy as switching out can fix that, but not the opponent's evasiveness.

    They stall for an extra turn of whatever effect, and in Doubles/Triples, can be used to either dodge an ally's attack or outwit an opponent.

    I don't hate moves that are meant to make things more difficult, I might get annoyed whenever my moves miss because of Accuracy drop or Evasion raise, but it's part of the game, and it's a strategy(And no, it's not a stupid one), hating on it because it causes me problems seems unnecessary.
