What do you think is the worst Pokemon move in the entire series. Now, before you say Splash, be aware that this move was designed to be useless. I am looking for moves that are suppose to have a function, but either fail miserably or are completely outclassed by other moves.

The moves I placed into the poll are moves that people have generally considered to be among the worst moves in the series. Of course, there is an Other option if you don't agree with any of the choices.

Personally, I feel that Sychronoise is the worst move in the series. Every generation the designers feel the need to make a gimmicky move. Well, this move is too situational and not to mention that it only works when the user is the same type as the opponent. So why waste your time with this move when you can use another Psychic-type move that it is not so restricted?

I'm gonna go with Defog only because it was an HM and the description for the move is dumb.

I remember that also and do kind of miss doing that lol. But this was one of a simple poll though rather than an idea for a tournament. Although it would've made life easier back then if polls were around when making that tournament.

And yeah, Defog is pretty lame. It is like a poor man's Flash and not to mention they removed it as an HM one generation later. Although it does remove Light Screen/Reflect from the battlefield. But it also can remove your Spikes on the opponent side... -_-

Barrage, definitely. Only known by one family, not very powerful, and it doesn't even have 100% accuracy.

At least the other moves have some usefulness to them.

The sport moves weaking types that you already have an advantage against seems pointless.

1.) Only learned by the Exeggutor line.
2.) The move deals Normal-type damage, so they don't get STAB on it.
3.) The move also deals Physical damage, when Exeggutor specializes in Special damage.
4.) It doesn't even have 100% accuracy for such an exclusive move.

I say that Barrage is the third worst move after Kinesis and Synchronoise...

It is a weak, multi-hit move only learned by a family that doesn't need a multi-hit move and doesn't get STAB.
