I don't see why everyone is hating on Growl, as Blaze Boy said, it is very useful in the early game. Mud Sport and Water Sport, on the other hand...

Feint This "you-can-run-but-you-can't-hide" move is only recommended for catching Pelipper.
Techno Blast Look, Genesect gets Ice Beam, T-bolt, & Flamethrower, which obviously has more power. T-blast requires Genesect to sacrifice its held item for a garbage disc. Did u say water?
Mud Sport Majority of Ground-types can learn this move, but what's the point? and why using it? same question goes for Water Sport.
Bestow Fling, Trick, & Switcheroo is BETTER
Twister Abysmally low base power combined with the crappy "special attack" type. It's a bad starting move for dragons, especially the physical ones.
Poison Powder & Poison Gas Use Toxic.
Quash Like feint, it's a pure "garbageness"
Synchronoise Filler crap.

Here's the thing about Splash: it's completely useless.
This, by default, makes it better than moves that are negative, yes? Moves that help your opponent.
Such as moves that make your sacrifice an entire Pokemon just to lower some stats that can easily be gained back by switching.
Yes, I would rather use Splash on a Pokemon than Memento. Dead serious.
Spoiler:- My Blog and Friend Codes:
Also I don't even see why Splash is being mentioned. Of course it's a completely useless move in battle...
Team in training:
For me its Odor Sleuth simply because I don't understand it.

I don't really see the point of Glaciate. It's basically (lol) Icy Wind on steroids.

are the worst moves i had ever seen in my life ever in pokemon series

Aside from the ever useless splash move, other rather useless moves are the "sport" moves (mud and water sport), feint, protect/detect and constrict.

Well we all know splash is like the wor-- GREATEST FRICKIN MOVE EVER!

My Current Challenges:
Megan's (My Sis) Challenges:
Pokemon Platinum Nuzlocke:
mud sport, water sport etc. as they weaken moves not even significantly. also the pokemon that learn the moves already have a resistance to the type they weaken. they are fairly useless.
Always watching. Always waiting. Never truly at peace in a realm of its own.

Well this is easy isn't it. The answer is splash.
But splash is the worst by far. There are other bad moves. Double slap is also one for me.
Wild Pokemon: USES DOUBLESLAP
Me: Why the heck would you slap A HUGE DRAGON MADE OF ICE THAT CAN JUST LOOK AT YOU AND YOU'D RUN OFF! (kyurem, the leader of my team at the moment)

Currently Looking For:
Worst move ever? Hmm... that's a tough one.
Memento has to be up there. Making your own Pokemon faint just to lower some stats is pretty ridiculous. Unless they're down to 1 Pokemon so they can't switch out to erase the stat decreases, it's a huge investment with proportionately little return.
Sweet Scent has to get a mention here. While it could have some use against Pokemon with abilities that boost evasiveness, it's much more efficient just to teach a never-miss damaging move.
But I think the grand prize has to go to Tackle, prior to Gen V. It's got garbage damage (35), the typing is Normal so it never does supereffective damage, it's one of the default moves on most Pokemon when they're born and it can miss? I think that's far worse than Constrict. Constrict is a useless, frustrating waste of space, sure, but at least it isn't widespread so it's rare that you have to suffer through training a Pokemon who knows it. Tackle is found on a ridiculous number of Pokemon, so the crap factor is really multiplied because of how often trainers have to deal with it. I mean, level grinding is a long enough project as it is, but slowing down the beginning levels by giving Pokemon a move that does little damage and can miss is just ridiculous as far as I'm concerned.
Luckily, GameFreak took pity on us and powered up the move in Gen V. Now it has 50 base damage and 100% accuracy. That makes far more sense as basic move that most Pokemon learn when they're starting to fight; not too great, but a reliable technique that will get you through the lower levels without too much hassle.

I have claimed Goodra. Happy slime dragons ftw!
Fire Pledge, Water Pledge and Grass Pledge are unnecessary. By the time you obtain those moves, your starters already have moves like Flame Burst, Scald or Leaf Blade... and you need trading to make the pledge moves stronger in doubles/triples.

I think Splash, it does nothing and has a high PP so it takes a while before you can even do damage with Struggle
Focus Punch..It's useless..sure it can be powerful but you enemy is most likely to attack you first make you lose focus punch..that's what pretty much happened to Chuck through out the fight against me..he kept using Poliwrath's focus punch and i kept hitting him..he never did any other move..so dumb
