What do you think are the worst moves in the game? I would like to contribute Constrict and Rage immediately.

Well.. obviously Splash.

Wing Attack - Much like rage, it has it's uses, but sucks.

Razor Wind - Apears to have absolutely no use at all.

Rock Throw

Disable - Again, Appears to be totally useless in serious battles.

I hate Rock Throw. Whoo! It hit! For not much damage! Yay!

For hitting half the time or so, it should have a strength over 100.

Skull Bash: Just like hyper beam, but you're nice enough to warn them first (it might have more PPs or something, but does it matter?)

I hate psywave as well.

Jeeps! 12 points! I'm feeling hot 2-nite!

Oh, this round it missed...


Before petit (and the silly pika) cups came into existence, I would list Dragon Rage.

I like splash: it give Magikarp flavor.
It isn't actually a move.

Counter and Bide can both be sad, but have good uses.

Even Water Gun can terrify a Rock Ground with their L100 double digit looking specials...

I hate Amnesia and Ice Beam on a Mewtwo (StarCaliber shudders remembering several hour long PP wasting battles he had with other Mewtwo toting brats). Check out my super-long post in the Oddish Hall under that kid's question about a good M2 moveset.

Most of the good bad ones have been picked.

Other stinkers:

Supersonic
Sing (except when cfalcon's goddam Clefaggot uses it)
All the Elemental Punches (too bad!)
Smog (poor Koffing)
Razor Wind
Sky Attack

Ummm...and I personally hate DT/Minimize, but there's no question that they work (see comments regarding Sing).

All inaccurate moves, excet the one hit KO ones.

Hmm..dunno why..but I think splash is rather cool.. I had a Gyrados with splash, sub, dt, rest. It's purpose was to tick people off. It did it's job...

I think Rock Throw has better accuracy in G/S; one of the few ways they balanced the game.

I really hate Aurora Beam. It just peeves me.

Personally I just can't stand toxic. I don't know why it just ticks me off a little. But I hate it more on stadium because of the way the announcer pronounces it: 'TAXIC'. Oooh!

Let's see. Vine Whip, Supersonic, Sonicboom, Cut, Flash, Mega Punch and Kick, Poison Sting, Peck ...

Oh, and about Stadium. I don't know about "Taxic" but the announcer pronounces Seismic Toss as "Seesmic Toss".

Well, let's see...
Splash...not really a move though...

Roar, Whirlwind, Teleport...completely useless until G/S, since they have uses in trainer battles there...

Rock Throw...Low power, made even worse by low accuracy...even worse than Thunder's...

Razor Wind...too low accuracy, plus two turns taken...yuck...

Not in English (well, not in American English). Maybe the limeys or canucks say it differently.

I thought the announcer was shouting something in Japanese or something.

I pronounce it 'sizemic'.

And a lot of the bad moves like Tackle are included not for linking but the RPG element. They intentionally suck.

My personal list of useless moves are:

Splash (obvious isn't it)
Pin missile (What 1 damage a hit?)
Sonic boom (what is 20 damage to a creature with 200Hp?)
Dragon Rage (twice as good as sonic boom but still poor)
Self-destruct (either its naff or my Pokes' are V.strong)

Moves I just hate:

Sleep powder/Hypnotise (Nothing worse than your pokes' sleeping)
Ice beam/Blizzard (Pastes my Dragon types without a fight)

------------------
Dragons all the way!

Counter, because you can't use it unless you KNOW your enemy is using a Normal or Fighting type attack (i.e., you're fighting a Hitmonlee).

Pin Missile sucks, except against Psychics, then it's not too bad if it hits all five times.

Splash is good for draining PP but that's about it. It's also nice for taunting your enemy ^_^

Toxic sucks since the extra damage wears off when they switch.

Rock throw sucks. Period. They could have made it a little more accurate for being a low power move.

Doubleslap is a joke, as well as Constrict.

Oh yeah, let's not forget Take Down... yecch!

I'd rather have Body Slam or Double Edge, both with 100% accuracy.
