    Personally, I think Earthquake is overpowered. It does 100 damage, 100% accuracy, hits everyone on the opposing team, and is super-effective against 5 different types. The best thing about this move is that it has no side-effects, good or bad. That is why Earthquake is considered the best move ever - because it is powerful, reliable, and has no side-effects.
    Hyperbeam and explosion seem really powerful at first glance, but their side-effects are just horrible, making them bad moves despite their overwhelming power.
    That's right: Here I will do a example:


    You're using a Tyranitar with 4% HP and your foe has a Blissey with 15% HP.
    You have a Staraptor with 23% HP, but your foe used SR and Switching would be useless.
    Tyranitar has SR, useless; Pursuit, no PP left; Crunch, disabled; and Triple Edge.
    Anyways you're going to die, Triple Edge's massive power would faint her and with Staraptor left you'll win.
