Earthquake.

Always has been #1, will likely stay #1.

depends on the mon, then.
um... judgement


Judgement only has 100 BP though, which is weaker than a max-happiness Return. And while it can be every type, it can only be one type at a time, and at the cost of a power-increasing item.

Hi Jump Kick


Even with the prominence of Ghost types and Protect?

Flying types, Levitate, and the Air Balloon can all be used to avoid it though... It also doesn't have any extra effects like a chance of burn or paralysis. It's a great move, but I wouldn't call it the best.

Oh... right, I forgot the plates boosted moves of their type. Still though, it -does- lock you into an item. That can be a pretty negative side effect, since you're using the move at the cost of powered up coverage moves.

All the attacks mentioned can potentially get STAB, plus they can be boosted with a life orb, choice band or choice specs, which powers up the Pokemon's other moves in turn.

If you're using Normal Arceus it can hold anything it wants.

Does it have to be a normal move or it can be signature?

Best Supportive Moves: Stealth Rocks, Spikes, Toxic/Spikes
Best Defensive Moves: Protect, Substitute
Best Boosting Moves: Quiver Dance, Shell Break (debatable)
Best Offensive Moves: Leaf Storm (w/ Contrary), any high powered STAB attack with reliable accuracy (Earthquake, Judgement, etc)

Although I listed EQ, obviously it isn't the best move if your opponent is a flying type. Legendaries' signature moves tend to be good, Aeroblast, Sacred Fire, Psychobreak, but again, the best attack in the game really depends on the scenario at hand.

In all seriousness though, SR is the best move in the game. One turn set up that punishes switching out and is such a staple that many pokemon are outright crippled because of it.
