    Psychic from Gen II has always been one of my all time favourites. It sounds completely messed up and the animation just totally distorts the screen.

    Draco Meteor seems to get more awesome-looking with each subsequent generation.

    Surf, there's just something about a tsunami-like wave being thrown at the opponent...

      Really like Aeroblast in Gen II, but I like the sound of it more.

            Can I take a guess? :D I think Gen IV's version, but Gen V also has that sound. See this video.

                Draco Meteor and Surf look really cool, but I also like Facade for some reason. It has those small bubbles sprinkling about. :)

                  I can't really remember too many of them because I turned them off the last time I played to get rid of the ridiculously long Z-Move animations, haha. I remember liking the Gen 4 animation for Razor Leaf a lot.

                    I used to like how Shadow Sneak was.

                    Brave Bird from Gen 6 on is just beautiful to watch. I love Calm Mind too now that it has that water droplet effect, lol. Gen 2 Psychic was pretty trippy as well and an old favorite.

                      For what hasn't been mentioned, Outrage in B2W2. It's just grand in its fury. Enough said.

                      I love that water drop effect on the post-6th Gen Calm Mind, but my all-time fave move animation is a tie between Water Pulse and Surf. Water-type moves always have neat animations, and I love how Surf is this giant wave crashing down on the foe, while Water Pulse's animation in B2/W2 was definitely its most gorgeous.

                      Unfortunately I hated Surf's 6th Gen animation so I was glad 7th Gen changed it back into the wave.

                      Meteor Mash has been a favorite of mine for a a long time! Along with surf and cosmic power. A newer move I really like is Moongeist Beam.

                          Aura Sphere, because it reminds me of Dragon Ball Z.
