I was playing my Platinum when my Togepi used Metronome. I was expecting something...normal, like Vine Whip or Crabhammer...but then the little egg went and used Judgement. I was like O_o

What were the weirdest experiences you've had with Metronome?

My opponents get Explosion at the most inconcenient times, and my BF record goes bye-bye. I used to leave it on every pokemon that could learn it 'cause it's fun, but I don't anymore. It's too unreliable.

^ I'm the same, it's one of my least favourite moves so I avoid it.

I've not had any really terrible Metronome incidents to speak of, but I have had Splash and Self Destruct/Explosion before. It can be frustrating to say the least.

I would echo others' comments in saying that I doubt Metronome can be any move other than the ones listed here. I've had Lava Plume twice in succession, for example, and many moves are repeated over time while some I've never seen.

As for my worst, that would have to be on my current playthrough of Platinum. I had given my Exp Share to my Togepi, and had put it in to battle against a Bidoof. Just my luck - Metronome brought up Fling, and I lost the one thing that had allowed me to train my Togepi effectively. Dx

I was playing PBR, and my Minun had Metronome. It used Charm and Defog, two stupid moves to say the least. Then on the third turn, it used Gunk Shot.

Metronome is a stupid move. There are so many moves it can become.

Teh quote is a lie D:

Mine has to be when I was fighting Steven in Ruby. I always keep one metronomer on my team, for the lulz. On this occasion, it was a Snorlax (my last poke) vs. his Aggron (his last poke). Both of us were in the red, snorlax had less than 10HP left...and I got DOUBLE-EDGE. AGAINST A FREAKING ROCK/STEEL TYPE. I got killed by my OWN RECOIL.

Ok, my worst Metronome experience was also in Ruby, Elite Four, against Steven. Last Pokemon on him and me, thought I'd be able to kill it without reviving another of my team. STUPID MOVE, anyway:

Snorlax used Metronome!
Snorlax used Metronome!
Snorlax used Fly!
Attack missed!
Snorlax used Metronome!
Snorlax used Growl!
But it failed!
Snorlax used Metronome!
Snorlax used Splash!
Snorlax used Metronome!
Snorlax used Take Down!!
Snorlax is hit by recoil!
Snorlax fainted!

. . .Yeah.

Thats why I never used Metronome after that. -.-'

Lulz. I actually like Metronome. Anyway, I don't remember any of my horrible Metronome experiences but I do remember getting Aeroblast in a random battle once.
