Spikes and Toxic Spikes (in Gen II)

Whatever effect they had in Gen II, they are a major force now, and they paved the way for Stealth Rock, the best example of this.

Rain Dance/Sunny Day/Sandstorm (in Gen II)

As moves, they are useful, but not overwhelming. However, without the moves, we wouldn't have had the Abilities, and the Abilities are nothing short of metagame-defining in Gen V, especially Drizzle.

Shell Smash

A chief contender for the best boosting move in the game. Very few moves can define a set; this is one of them.

Baton Pass

Speaking of moves that define a set, Baton Pass is another one of those, especially when coupled with a good boost move, but simple stuff like Swords Dance, Nasty Plot, or Agility will work.

Swords Dance and Dragon Dance.

Can we count abilities, too?
Cuz then I'd say Drizzle and Drought.
