I greatly dislike using suicidal moves to destroy an opponent however great the effects may be for my team. I mean, what's the use of KO-ing a Pokemon in-game but lose the precious experience points that could make a whole world of difference? It'll be much worth it taking down the opponent scathed but alive in my opinion. I also dislike having any of my Pokemon faint during battle; keeping my whole team up and running in all circumstances is one of my main must-do's.

In some cases, those explosive self-defeating moves don't entirely take down Pokemon with huge defensive stats though. I've experienced it before. This makes these moves all the more unreliable.

In competitive battling however, I guess these types of moves are somewhat excusable, given the benefits for the team that could either make a winning or a losing match. I personally won't be using those moves, though. The more Pokemon, the better!
