this could range from weather moves to status effecting or stat raising/lowering only moves... any move that doesn't do damage or heal damage or status ailments. what is your favorite of those type of moves...


mine is "Attract"...

Protect. Combine that with toxic and a bunch of defense boosts.

Tail Glow. It's a pity almost nothing learns it.
I'm just a little crazy sometimes. OK, a lot crazy all the time.

I agree with Tail Glow, more Pokemon should learn it. Anyway, I don't think I have an absolute favorite one of these moves. I do really like Calm Mind, Quiver Dance, and Attract though. idk if Attract counts since attraction could be seen as a status ailment, but oh well!

Toxic would probably have to be my favorite non-attack/healing move. The fact that it is one of the best status inflicting moves and can be used by virtually every Pokemon makes it a truly versatile move.

Quiver Dance and Shell Smash. They're pretty much the ultimate setup moves, IMO.

Spore, because it's just overpowered in my opinion. though this is countered by the fact that only very few Pokemon are able to learn it. (Man am I glad one of my favorites learns it. XD)

Swords Dance, I like most stat increasing moves, but Swords Dance is the one I've used the most. (Not to mention Zangoose learns it at a ridiculously low level.)

But the more successful it is the less protect works and then BAM! You're dead xD
Mine is Swords Dance, since it super boosts! IMO xD

I battle competitively with my favorite Pokémon, not with the most used or the ones with the better stats, copy this in your sig if you do it too.

I would have to say that Quiver Dance is one of my favourite moves. My Lilligant learned it right before Clay's gym on my White version.

Swagger. It has such a wide distribution, and I enjoy confusing opponents, and its the only way of crippling physical Fire types like Darmanitan and Flareon who are immune to burns.

Mirror Move. Hopefully at some point there will be a Fighting bird that can use it.

Toxic. On Snorlax. That combination alone creates a near-invincible tank.

And no one said Stealth Rock yet... o_o; it's probably the most game-changing move since they made it in Diamond/Pearl.

I've always been a fan of Bulk Up. Oddly enough, I rarely used it in RSE.

I like Toxic and Calm Mind. Toxic is what it is: a slow and deadly killer. Calm Mind works wonders with Psychic-types. I appreciate both the special attack and special defense boosts. It helps a lot in battles. Oh, and Quiver Dance. No one can deny that.

Swagger, Toxic & Double Team.

Swagger because it can be a pain both ways, Toxic because it's so easy to Poison the opponent and comes in handy when competitive battling and Double Team because once you've stacked it up it's difficult to be hit.
