    It can be any sort of move at all. Damaging, status affecting, healing etc.

    For me, the worst move absolutely has to be Focus Blast. I'm not sure why they would give such a high powered move only 70% accuracy.

    Too many favorite moves to list, but I'd say Leaf Blade, Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Close Combat, Earthquake, Earth Power, Draco Meteor and Dragon Pulse.

    My least favorite moves are Double Team and Minimize if the CPU spams them.

      I also subscribe to double team and minimise to the worst moves.
      My favorite moves would be flamethrower, blast burn, ice beam, aqua jet, aura sphere.

        I have some favorite moves, but there aren't really all that many compared to the moves I hate. More often than not, I only hate certain moves purely because it seems like the CPU uses them just to troll me at the worst times during a fight.


        Favorite moves: Return, Close Combat, Aura Sphere, and Fissure.

        Least Favorite moves: Attract, Minimize, any move that paralyzes, or any move that reduces evasiveness.

        Another move that I don't really hate, just hate my luck when it is used against me: Metronome

          Least favourite moves: sing and supersonic.
          Whenever I use them, they always miss. The opponent? Always hits me.
          Favourite move: toxic
          Epic damage and takes care of those pesky double team / recover users.

          I have so many fave moves I can't list them all, but notable ones I like include Flamethrower, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam (they have wide distribution). Earthquake, Shadow Ball and Aura Sphere get some worthy mentions.

          Least faves are Double Team and Minimize, cos I hate "evasion noobs" who spam those moves.

            Shadow Ball is my favorite move even though I don't even know why. It's good but not that good, cool looking but not that cool looking, etc... XD I just like it

              Personally, Razor Shell & Iron Tail are my favorite moves (both in games and in the anime).

              I really dislike, my least favorite would be Roar, Whirldwind - forces another Pokemon out, and moves that make my Pokemon sleep (Sleep Powder, Hypnosis), but I only hate them when they are used against me, or when opponent uses a move to regain health (Roost, Moonlight, Recover). They are not part of my least favorite when a Pokemon in my team uses them.

                My favourite moves are the 90-damage 100% accurate 15PP tetrafecta of Surf, Flamethrower, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam. I love that, evasive moves notwithstanding, they're so reliable at inflicting damage. They're the staple moves of the critters that have them, and I wouldn't know what to do without them.

                Least favourite move is Sand-Attack. Minimize/Double Team - and maybe this is just my weird luck - don't seem to affect my critters as much as Sand-Attack does. One kick of that sand can send most of my team into a tailspin for whatever reason. And it's always the earliest opponents that use it for extra annoyance. Ugh.

                  I love me some Dances. Quiver Dance, Dragon Dance, Fiery Dance, Swords Dance, Petal Dance, Rain Dance, FeatherDance, Teeter Dance, Lunar Dance. If it learns a Dance, then I will catch it and make it learn a Dance. Quiver Dance is definitely my all-time favorite, though.

                  Least favorite is simple: DynamicPunch. Of course it'll hit when you use it, but it's a waste of a move slot without No Guard for me. Zap Cannon would be the same, but I've never been against it.

                    You're in for a bonus then Cat Dog. You're getting a 5.5% increase in power since those moves each hit for 95 base power.

                    Pursuit is one of my favourites.

                    Hate stuff like confuse ray and attract.

                      Favorite: Metronome
                      I like it because there's a chance that my Pokemon can use a Pokemon exclusive move, and then it can use Self Destruct on a Steel type :/

                        Least: Confusion's not too bad cause sometimes it lets you hit, I'd say things that cause you too fall in love with the opponent is the worst lol

                        The move that is on both ends of the spectrum as my favorite and least favorite is Metronome. It can lead to hilarious situations like a Togepi using Roar of Time or a Cleffa using Sheer Cold, but then it can also lead to unfortunate situations like your Pokemon using Self Destruct or Memento (which is my least favorite "normal" move).

                              my least favorite moves are the one hit KO's they never worked for me, but I have some nightmares of it almost always hitting me in Pokemon stadium.

                              my favorite: Flame thrower, Ice beam, and the like, their reliablenot as powerfull as their more powerefull counterparts, but more accurate

                                  Favorite moves would be Toxic. Don't you just love it when you poison them and watch them die...? XD

                                  Least Favorite...goodness, these are annoying. Double-team, minimize...anything that would make them impossible to get hit. If you don't have 'must-hit' moves then it's going to be a PAIN. Other than that, there's Yawn and the infamous Confuse Ray.

                                  Thunder, Fire Blast, and Ice Beam have always been my favorite three moves. Not sure why, but they're just awesome. I wish Thunder and Fire Blast had better accuracy though :<

                                  Least favorites would be stat reducing moves, like screech, growl, charm, etc. So annoying.

                                  My favorite move is probably Metronome. You never know what will happen :]
                                  Least favorite is probably Protect or Detect. They get REALLY annoying after a while.

                                    Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Aura Sphere, Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Draco Meteor, Leaf Blade, Dragon Dance, and Swords Dance have been some of my favorite moves for as long as I can remember.

                                    Moves like Confuse Ray, Attract, Thunder Wave, Sleep Powder, unless I'm not the one using them, I wish would just all go away. Ugh! They're the worst and absolutely annoying when used against you.
