    Default What do you think is the worst Pokemon move?

    In my opinion, Constrict is. It's base power of 10 makes it the least powerful attacking move in the games and it's 10% chance of lowering speed, which can be achieved more easily using moves like Icy Wind or paralyzing the foe. Also, no Pokemon (except from Smeargle) can gain STAB from it.

    The worst moves would be those Multi-attack moves like bullet seed. Low power, and no security that it will do great damage. Outrage rocks though

    Splash can actually be used as a strategy, by having the opponent Mimicking it or something, or disabling it.

    While that's true, Multi-hit moves can be put to great use with the ability Skill Link, which makes moves always hit 5 times.
    Dragon Rage only does 40 HP damage, and it's not so great on higher-leveled Pokemon with a great amount of HP.

    Focus Blast is the worst move in the game. It's very inaccurate and it sucks we don't have a Fighting-type counterpart to Flamethrower. It's the move that makes you rage because of it missing so often, especially if you're a competitive battler. Heck, even on the show Focus Blast = Focus Miss!

    Flatter. It raises the target's wrong stat and confuses it.

    Twister. By the time you obtain a dragon-type with Twister, your Pokemon already have better moves.

    Hyper Beam and its variants: Every move with 75+ BP is better than Hyper Beam and the turn it consumes.

    Synchronoise: It hits the target only if its type is the same as yours. Yeah.

    Splash for obvious reasons.

    It's probably just you, give your pokemon an accuracy-boosting item and it works out for you.

    Splash. This is a fact. You cannot discuss it.

    Now, a moderator has to come here and close this dumb thread, please.

    Either Splash or Memento. Splash was previously explained above, but memento causes an instant death to whoever used the move, in which the only good thing that comes out of it is that the other pokemon's attack and special attack reduced by two stages.

    We also discussed this. Splash is one of the best moves in the game. Detect on the other hand, is just another form of protect with fewer PP.

    And also, let's not have splash dominate this thread more than metal blades dominated Megaman 2.

    Constrict or Flatter.

    Memento is great on Dugtrio for crippling whatever switches in after it revenge kills something if it isn't Choiced.

    Splash. It literally does, NOTHING. Those moves that just "identify" your Pokemon are pretty bad, but at least they do something, or have something made up for them to do.

    Hello? Am I reading this right? Splash is completely useless.

    Well outside of the obvious splash, any growl ,and all of its variants, along with sonicboom. The former set gets outclassed by various moves, and is pretty useless, while the later becomes useless once pokemon get move than 60 HP.
    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    I think the worst move is fissure. It has no accuracy and misses 7 times in 5 turns. Splash has more use than it.

    I agree with the first post. Constrict is pretty bad. Splash is actually a good move. See for yourself:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-4CW68jv00

    Wrap, Fire Spin and variants thereof. Honestly, when is the last time anyone ever used these moves?

    Also, if you want to do a powerful Sonic Boom, this is how you do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9cz2un9gzA

    While Splash is useless in battle, it's actually pretty useful in the Cute Category contest.

    Skill Link Cloyster would disagree with you.

    Yeah for early gameplay, but once you start facing Pokémon that have more than 40hp it's become useless.

    How on earth does Flatter raises the target "wrong" stats when the game clearly states that its raises the target's Special Attack. What more it can be useful in double battle if you use it right.

    Those move are actually really useful early in the game and is one of the reason why I have such an easy time defeating Whitney's Miltank, when most people struggled against her.

    Properly back in the days on Generation 1 when those move were broken as hell.

    Synchronoise on Umbreon. Just think about it for a second.

    I think Constrict and Quash are also among the worst. Constrict is the weakest damaging move in the game, and Quash is so situational that it's not worth it most of the time (as far as I know).

    Quash is actually somewhat useful in doubles and triples, where it can be used by prankster Murkrow to make Pokemon that threaten your team attack last. It's also somewhat useful for setting up Trick room.

    I agree that constrict might be most useless move though.
