My favorite move in this generation would be Aerial Ace!
I love that swift sound and the animation.

I think scratch is a good attack.

I actually like rock tomb in this generation because it always PWNed my team and whenever I used it, it would PWN their team. I never had this problem after that GEN

Honestly, muddy water was one of my favorites when playing Ruby. Mudkip was my starter, so when my Swampert learned it, I had never heard of the move before. It had that mysterious quality that ensures I will never forget it.

Leaf blade, aerial ace, Doom desire, and Frenzy plant.
Their animations were very cool.

I actually have a couple favorites.

I always would over train my starters when I was younger and Torchic just happened to be my Hoenn starter of choice. And let me just say... I LOVED the move Blaze Kick. I don't know why, I just did. Also, if I remember correctly. I over-trained Blaziken and taught it Dynamic Punch from that guy in front of Tate & Liz and I ended up dominating with that attack.

My other favorite move is Aerial Ace. You got it early on in FR & LG and it was a really effective attack as well as a very useful attack to use against the Pokemon that would increase evasiveness. Such as Muk with his stupid minimize... -.-

However, outside of battle, I loved secret power. Having a Secret hideout was so awesome for me when I was younger.

Leaf Blade and Doom Desire are my two favorite moves in the game, something about my Sceptile slicing through opponents with a leaf blade just amused me so much and Doom Desire was awesome in terms of animations.

I seemed to like any attack that would never miss. Shock Wave, Aerial Ace, Swift etc. really effective if the opponent kept raising evasiveness or lowered your accuracy.

Two of my favorite attacks from the 3rd generation were, Luster Purge and Mist Ball that the Duo dragons had. They looked cool and were pretty good to use, considering LP lowers your SP.Def, while MB lowers your SP. Atk.

I suppose Aerial Ace attracted a lot of people out there. The animation was a cool one, even though small, it was always nice to see Swellow do a snazzy swipe on the foe.

Sadly, both these moves were outclassed by Psychic, which was more convenient and had more accuracy. I really wanted Latias to have its signature move, Mist Ball did seem cool in the animation.

Horn Drill would definitely be my favorite. This attack has super low accuracy, (30%) but it's a 1 hit-KO move. I would always get excited when it would work especially on higher leveled Pokemon. The animation for this attack just looks phenomenal too. Also this attack is very uncommon, which is another reason why I love it.

I loved Muddy Water.
I know it's not as good as Surf attack-wise, but the accuracy loss made me love the move. I've always liked decreasing accuracy over doing more damage

I think Blast Burn is awesome, but my favourite (and yes, it's the most simple move ever) is flamethrower, Charizard doing it is just epic.

My favorite Attack is Volt tackle cause of its Animation,Conception & attacking stat

Well its the first Move in My GEN 3 life without being in the TM list as you know its could be only obtain by Breeding a male and female (holding a light ball ) Pikachu so when i Pichu will born that Pichu will have Volt tackle another way is by cheating. But i don't like cheating though so i used the non cheater way

After i beat the league in Emerald i just heard about that attack in Anime so i thought that as its GEN 3 maybe volt tackle also will be held in this GEN so i open my browser and viewed a site where i get a Gameshark code but i ignore it and see how to obtain it without cheat so too many hard work to do first get a female and male Pikachu then get a light ball from Safari, then breed both and wait for a Pichu to born huh.... but i didn't give up first i went to safari zone and tried to catch a Male pikachu and i successed at first encounter but that Pikachu wasn't holding the lightball but anyway i took it in party then i got crazy cause i won't able to find a Female after a half an hour hard work i find a female and easily catch it but also it wan't holding the light ball huh but then i tried again and after catching many non useful junk of Pikachu i finally finished my searching with a Light ball holding Pikachu then i went to PokeCenter and flee all the junk of wasted Pikachu then i breed the Male Pikachu and the female (Holding light ball) then i didn't did anything else then just doing some rematch with Gym leader then next morning i open my Desktop and VBA and open the rom and went to the Day care and take the Pichu and then i lvl it up with many gym fights using EXP Share then after it evolved to Pikachu i enjoyed too much seeing it using the Volt tackle move its a really great move ;p

I believe its Leaf Blade all the way. Its exclusiveness and base power is impressive, and Sceptile, who is awesome, learns it reallll quick!

I miss my friends everynight...
I wonder where they are now...
