We have all disscussed our favourite pokemon but what about your favourite moves and why do you like them?

I was always partial to Surf because of major damage while in the overworld view being lovely transportation. It's far more useful compared to the other HMs (Flash and Waterfall being the weakest for me)

And definitely Ice Beam, because Blizzard isn't worth the risk with its accuracy issues and Ice Beam has enough damage to compensate.

Of the new ones, I've been fond of Torment and Taunt for more of an interesting defense and to screw around with the moveset (as Disable could only do so much).

I'll keep thinking.

thank you very much for your views. As for me i have to say ive always loved major damage moves such as thunder,blizzard,fire blast and solar beam. My favourite of those however i have to say has to be thunder as for me it has more effect to a various types of pokemon than any of the others has.

As for the weakest out of those four for me solar beam is my least favourite as it does not have the cance of after effected that the other three do such as paralysis,burn and freezing the opponent.

Defensively i feel that moves such as screech are really effective in lowering opponents defense sharply. The move imprision i think has no real point to it as it only prevents psychic attacks from commencing and i feel there are better moves which can replace that.Defensively my favourite move has to be double team or minimize as once used it lowers chances from getting hit by offensive moves.

I Have to say though i have recently taken a shine to silver wind as i feel its a real stunning move and extremely effective in pokemon contests.

Sure.

I do like Solarbeam, but the fact when you can't take the hit while charging is troubling, and there is no Grass move to act like as proxy (Ice Beam for Bliz, Thunderbolt for Thunder, Flamethrower for Fire Blast). Bah. Anyway, I forgot to say Aeroblast from Lugia as my favorite signature Poke move, because it is awe-inspiring in any form in my previous post.

And Recover as the best healing move? Oh, that wins, hands down. It's the only one I could count on in the long battles and the stats take care of the rest.

Probably should do recovering moves next, hmm?

Um, I'd have to say Ice attacks are good, But Dark's are the best. I like using those two because IMO they could bring up the most damage.

Actually, isn't there leaf blade? Lol oh well, i havn't used sceptile for so long. My fav move would prob be thunder, just cuz it looks so cool XD. And if it is on a Lanturn, who has surf+rain dance and confuse ray. I think that might be a good thing, im not 100% sure though, i'm not the guy who knows movesets. Also, i haven't used Lanturn before either.lol. My fav defensive move is Swords Dance/ Bulk Up/ Calm Mind/ Cosmic power. Of any, prob clam mind. I would have gone with swords dance, but i havn't rele used it yet. And for healing, i think moonlight or morning sun (or w/e it was called) are good, because they can heal full health if it is sunny out.

i have to agree with you about recovery as it probably is the miost reliable recovery move there is. As for solar beam you are correct in saying that it takes two turns to launch but using sunny day helps launch solar beam attacks straight away i think?

I love flamethrower,eruption and earthquake,I taught them to my Groudon,they work acceptionally well.

Well, I have a few favorites:

Aurora Beam - Because I love how it looks.
Icicle Spear - Don't know why, I just like it.
Octazooka - The name sounds cool.
Metronome - I like randomness.

hehex.. let's not forget that Groudon has good status as well.. which enhances those attacks even more! :P

Flamethrower

it's powerful and damaging!

Samson
November 12th, 2006, 10:25 PM
actually, with the new D/P moves, i think solar beam does have a new proxy: that energy ball move.

anywho, i don't have a favorite move.

Sammi
November 13th, 2006, 11:43 AM
I rather like Psychic *shot* It's a strong move, and one of my favorite types :D

After that, Surf. It's really handy, it does pretty decent damage, and it usually looks cool (well, except for RBY, it was kind of blah then).

Sakura
November 13th, 2006, 02:21 PM
Hm...protect, perish song, metronome, sing, endure, recover...and I'm sure more.

Gunn
November 13th, 2006, 07:26 PM
Metronome is a fun and unique move to use. Just never know what move will be performed next. And that's what I like about it.

November 13th, 2006, 08:05 PM
Just for looks Aurora Beam and Fire Spin are my favorites, but for what they do I love Attract, Dream Eater, Curse, Snore, Rest, Fly, and Lovely Kiss :3. I also like Fake Tears, for some reason I can always picture the pokemon braking out crying and the other stopping the battle trying to make it stop ;)

Idiot!

Animation-wise
Fire Blast - Awesome in GSC
Doom Desire - Like summoning sunlight

Battle-wise
Bolt, Beam, Thrower - Deadly, especially when they can be TMs
Hidden Power
Thief
Pay Day
ExtremeSpeed
MistBall
Lustre Purge
DragonBreath

And the list goes on...

~Solarys~
November 20th, 2006, 11:42 PM
Destiny Bond - the best move of all time!
Perish Song - only because Missy learns it...
Extrasensory - 80 base damage with 30 PP to spam with, AND it stuns (once in a while)!
Dark Pulse (Aku no Hadou) - Looks cool, and can stun.

earthquake - its just, amazing really most of my pokemon have it
rock slide - again just great, useful for taking out flying pokemon

My favourites moves are
Surf - Power, accuracy and usefullness rolled into one
Ice Beam/Flamethrower/Thunderbolt - Good old Mr. Reliables
Double-Edge - On the right pokemon, this move is a killer, great power, good accuracy and a nice amount of PP's, the recoil hurts a lot thro.
Shadow Ball - Give this to Flareon and watch how badly you mash the psychics! Of course when D/P come out it'll be special so try it out then with Espeon or Jolteon!
Drill Peck - Another relable move
Swords Dance - A nice Attack booster, funnily enough more common than Sharpen and Meditate
Aerial Ace - Flying swift makes for a nice striking move
Aurora Beam - Good Accuracy, bit more powerful than Bubblebeam (I think) and lowering attack helps especially if using a pokemon like Vaporeon.
Psychic - Who doesn't like psychic?
Sketch

But in my opinion, my most favourite move of all is Wing Attack

Think about it...60 power, 100% base accuracy, and 40 PP

It outclasses all moves of that power levels in trems of flexibility and PP.
It can be used as a secondary attack move.
It's great to train up pokemon with due to being able to defeat more wild pokemon before having to restore that PP via Pokemon Centre.

Wing Attack has 35 PP not 40... (The only offensive move with 40 PP is Rapid Spin that does 20 base damage - False Swipe can't KO so it doesn't count.)

Compared to Extrasensory, 80 base damage with 30 PP to spam around, and a 10% chance to stun the enemy for a turn, which is better?

My vote is on Extrasensory.

IMO:
Extrasensory > Psychic
Aerial Ace > Wing Attack
Ice Beam > Aurora Beam (95 + 10% chance to freeze vs 65 + 10% chance to lower Attack.)

Earthquake has to be my all time favorite move. It's saved me so many times and it's just all around strong.

Crimson Arcanine
November 23rd, 2006, 09:06 PM
Forgot about Earthquake! That move rocks my world:cool:

I checked it up and yes, you are right ~Solarys~. Wing Attack has only 35 PP, bot still its by far the best offensive move with 35 PP there is

Extrasensory is a very good move, however it is learnt by only a few pokemon via breeding and I believe (but not sure) that only Shiftry learns it naturally.

And In a battle sense yes Aerial Ace is better than Wing Attack, but my judgement is not just based on battling other players, its more based on many other factors as well.

Covet is another offensive move with 40PP I believe

Butr i'll be quiet now. I may be the most knowledgable about it in my hometown, but i'm a newb compared to all the people out there.

Ninetales

Extrasensory is a very good move, however it is learnt by only a few pokemon via breeding and I believe (but not sure) that only Shiftry learns it naturally.

So does Nuzleaf. (well gee that helps--Shiftry evolves from Nuzleaf...) I wish Ninetales could learn it, but...

Anyways, some of my favourite moves are:

Curse--This is probably my top favourite move. I'm talking about the ghost version, not the one that makes Snorlax so overused. It's a perfect move to use on a trainer's last Pokemon. I especialy do this to gym leaders, since they usually use their best Pokemon last. Ahh, I remember that time in Gold when my Gastly used Curse on Whitney's seemingly-all-powerful Miltank, and I just hept stalling with my Pokemon until Miltank's afflictions caused her to faint... Mwahahahaha.

Magical Leaf--I like this attack simply because it's pretty. One of the reasons why one my best Pokemon in Sapphire is Roselia is because Roselia learns it. And another thiing I like is a couple of Psychic Pokemon can learn it, such as Kirlia and Mr. Mime.

Will-O-Wisp--Another attack I like for its looks. I especially like the way Phantom's Dusclops used it in a contest in the anime, it looked cool there... Anyways, aside from that, an attack that simply causes a burn? That's pretty darn good. My Banette and Ninetales proudly know it.

Hyper Beam--I don't care how bad people think this move is. 150 is a pretty powerful damage, and if used by a physical sweeper, it can most likely KO a Pokemon, and then you can switch out. I've loved this attack ever since Lance's Pokemon kept using it on mine in Yellow...

Dream Eater--It's such a powerful move (100 power), and it drains HP too! I really can't see why Hypno doesn't learn this by leveling up... because every Hypno I ever had knows this move, and of course Hypnosis as well.

Teleport--It's a great replacement for a Smoke Ball, especially if you have it on a speedy Pokemon like Alakazam. And plus, it's a great field move--you can return to a Pokemon center from anywhere outside. It's perfect if your Pokemon gets poisoned and you don't want it to faint by walking.

Confuse Ray--100% accuracy is pretty darn good for a status changer. The only thing I hate about it is when my own Pokemon gets hit by it--ARRGH!

Take Down--Lots of Pokemon learn it, and it's a great contest move--especially if the Pokemon also knows Harden and goes last. In a combo it gets... 12 appeal points!! (I also like Hi Jump Kick for this reason, when combined with Mind Reader, but only Hitmonlee and the Meditite family learn that combo...)

My favourite attack is Giga-Drain. It's cool animation and good effects

~Solarys~
November 25th, 2006, 05:03 PM
Ninetales does learn Extrasensory in D/P.

Samson
November 25th, 2006, 06:08 PM
no, vulpix learns it at a higher level. i don't think ninetales learns anything on its own. a lot of stone-evolved pokes are like this, which is a shame because it's tough trying to raise pokes at their basic stage.

hehe i have vulpix/ninetales D/P moveset just about memorized now probably cus i'm a ninetales lover myself. can't wait to train one in D/P.

yup that's my fave move of all time too, i just blast after blast all TR grunts, Gym leaders and Elite four members in my way with that awesome Giga drain attack >D

Ninetales does learn Extrasensory in D/P.

OMG! it can learn it (but only before evolution as a Vulpix, but doesn't matter to me)

That's it, when I get D/P i'm gonna have a Ninetales on my team even thro I nearly always do anyway :D

Yes, Psychic is one of my favorite moves too. :D Not only is it powerful, but it's cool-looking too. *_*

Another move I'm obsessed with is Swagger. I love that move so much.. It's so risky, yet it could pay off big time in the end.

Another is Swords Dance. A lot of my Pokemon have this move. ^^

November 30th, 2006, 09:36 AM
earthquake.because when you teach it to a swampert it can deal a lot of damage.but the only bad part is that it doesnt affect flying types and those with levitate but apart from that its a realy great move!

Ive realized something recently whilst playing my poemon fire red petal dance may not be that effective in winning battles but its a really elegant move and here is a tip for you all. Try using it in contests its worked wonders for me.

Lavabyle
November 30th, 2006, 02:46 PM
^ Yeah i usually only have petal dance on my contest pogey's, since it really isn't too effective in high leveled battles, and your pokemon can only hold 1 berry each >.<

December 1st, 2006, 04:01 PM
Shadowball because I love Ghost type Pokemon. they are the best and Shadowball is one of the best Ghost type moves so thats why

My favorite move is Blast Burn because any Pokémon that faces it is KO'd in the first round or very soon after.

Aeroblast is cool, but only in Pokemon Stadium 2, it was a cool beam that was red, yellow, and blue. And the way Lugia prepared for the attack was just awsome. But when Pokemon colosseum came out, they changed it to a stupid swirling tube that looks like its cut out of paper.

But that was then, and this is now, so my favourite attack has to be twister and whirlpool.

The Fallen
December 10th, 2006, 01:58 PM
Right now it is Blast Burn. I can't wait to see how they look in Diamond & Pearl though.

Mudkip85
December 10th, 2006, 04:10 PM
Well i have to say one thing after what i saw in the Battle Frontier season, i never new how great the move Frenzy Plant the ultimate grass type move was until i saw it in one of May's Pokemon contests. The animation was absolutley spectacular.

Timbjerr
December 11th, 2006, 09:10 AM
I've always been partial to annoying moves like Toxic, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Mean Look...etc. This combined with its sheer speed and decent offensive capabilities (Crunch, Aerial Ace, Sludge Bomb) is probably why Crobat is at the top of my "favorite pokemon" list.

Even if it's far less useful than other poison moves, I really love Poison Fang for some reason. >_>

I agreee its not a bad move i enjoy its animation however i think that Frenzy Plant looks really cool too.

My favorite move is Thunderbolt cause in PokemonBlueRescueTeam it attacks every foe surrounding the user.

Cornicapus
December 13th, 2006, 05:13 PM
My fave moves are
1.Hyper beam (super strong move that kills all the little annoying random pokemon that come up in random battles X_x)
2.Overheat (good in Double battles)
3.Psychic (Totally kills fighting and ghost types (the type i hate the most))
4.Sky Uppercut (screws pokemon who want to use fly)
5."cooltrainer"(Glitch move that screws the game) well at least i take em down with me
