    Fire Blast, Recover, and Hyper Beam were all really cool for me, at least. In future generations, the Hyper Beam didn't have the multicolored particles, which I really liked. A similar instance of that was Ice Beam, where they changed it from the crystal particles to a straight beam. Disappointing...

    With the Recover orbs, I could always feel that sense of "Gahhhhhh" everytime someone used it. And that rising sound effect just was icing on the already awesome cake.

    And Fire Blast has always been amazing. Having a giant Kanji symbol that says "FIRE" when you use it is just wicked.

      Leaf Blade's animation is pretty epic. Always loved it. The blades slashing up and down was always fascinating. Close second is Steel Wing. I liked how they combined Wing Attack with a Steel type move's sheen.

        hand down dragonbreath and thunder. Shock wave is pretty cool too. I also felt like dragon breath looked more like flamethrower than flamethrower did [just throwing that out there].

          Thunder or Muddy Water. Though I haven't seen every move to fairly judge

          Gosh this is tough, they're all so nice and a huge upgrade from the second generation. I guess I always really admired the artwork in Sheer Cold, so that's definitely one of my top picks. Psychic and Thunder are up there as well, and to round out the top five I'll throw in Solar Beam and Tri Attack! n__n;

            I loved the animation of Superpower because it look so cool when it seemed like your pokemon was lifting the earth!

              My favourite was Leaf Blade for sure, Sceptile slicing everything to death. I often found myself copying the animation with my arms in the air... don't do this in public.

                i think my favourite attack animation is a toss-up between volt tackle and fire blast. the overall quality of the animation has substantially improved from the days of red/blue. fire blast actually looks really freaking awesome in gen 3 to be honest.

                  Aside from the aforementioned Superpower, I really liked Hydro Pump's animation in Gen III. Those twin shots of water look boss together, and I actually like it more than its animations in the later generations.

                  Water Pulse, Hydro Pump and Surf pretty much had my fave attack animations of 3rd Gen. Shows how cool Water moves looked in a region that's full of it. Oh, and Water Gun involving a water droplet thrown onto the opponent was kinda funny especially compared to the later animations of the move.

                      Leaf Blade was definitely my favorite, I clearly remember transferring one of my Sceptiles and using it in Generation 4 and being very disappointed by the animation change. I really loved how a lot of animations were pretty simple in Gen 3, like Signal Beam and Ice Beam.

                      Yeah, Tri-Attack was actually a pretty cool one. I loved how those triangle-shaped figures would spin into your opponent, and eventually strike them with thunder, fire, and ice. It sucks that they wound up replacing it in later games, though. Only thing they probably should have done, I believe, is to perhaps just changes its texture, so that it'd be more suitable for the updated graphics and whatnot.

                      I really liked Outrage. It looks just like what the move's called - an outrage. Complete with crazy circling and fire sprites. n_n

                      I don't know why, but Blast Burn honestly looked sick for me, also good ol' ones like Flamethrower, Ice Beam or Surf look pretty cool.

                      To me, Eruption had the coolest animation of Gen 3; it was very fun to watch my Camerupt rain destruction down on my opponents >:D the background turning red and the screen shaking greatly added to the visual effect of the move as well

                        Thunder is my personal favourite, although Tri Attack, Sheer Cold and Blast Burn were all particularly memorable as well.

                        Oh, and I like how Return's animation changed depending on how close your Pokemon was to you. The screen darkening and the multiple hits becoming stronger and stronger really gave you a sense that you'd raised that Pokemon right.

                        My favorite attack animation was definitely Brick Break. It looked really cool when Hitmonlee used it. I hate how they made it looked in 4th Gen and on.

                          Call me strange, but... Will-O-Wisp. Sorry. It's just... really funny to watch. My second pick would be Ice Beam tho. It's sound effect was pretty HM02 as well. :p
