I thought about making an animation topic, for TMs that were never changed, but bulbapedia's links weren't working.
Pay Day:
*Gen I/II - These coins are picked up(same effect throughout every gen)
*Gen III - Drops coins equal to five time the users level. Amulet Coin doubles the money picked up
*Gen IV/V - Luck Incense also affects total

I've never really used any of these for in-game. I've used Light Screen on a Dustox before in-game, but it didn't learn it by TM, so...

I'll go with Light Screen, because it seems more useful overall. Pay Day isn't useful since it's weak and hardly gives any money, plus you're better off just beating the Elite Four over and over anyway. Icy Wind is a close second, but none of these moves are anything special, really.

Payday was awesome in RBY since anything could learn it.

Icy Wind is meh, but it was one of the more powerful ice type moves you could learn at that point in the game

Light Screen is one of the most useless in-game attacks out there.

Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

Last I checked, "in-game" is not competitiving.
