Smack Down:
Smack Down inflicts damage. Smack Down removes the effects of Magnet Rise and Telekinesis. Smack Down makes its target vulnerable to Ground-type moves and Arena Trap even if it is Flying-type or has Levitate. This effect lasts until the affected Pokémon switches out.
This effect does not occur if the target is behind a substitute or is not currently Flying-type (e.g. Roost) or does not currently have Levitate.
Smack Down can hit a target that is using Fly or Bounce and knock it to the ground (canceling the move). It can also hit a Pokémon that is using or is affected by Sky Drop, but can't knock it down. A Pokémon hit with Smack Down can still use Fly or Bounce on subsequent turns.

Iron Tail is an great attack that's wildly underrated.

Iron Tail may be inaccurate and have a poor attacking type, but at least it's strong. The other two end up being pretty useless fairly quickly.

Iron Tail is rather inaccurate, but it really is the best of those three moves.

Tough vote.

Iron Tail is underrated, but it's not really a desirable attacking type, nor is the secondary effect all that good, so it doesn't deserve the vote.

Dragon Rage is a weak attack but it serves its purpose in lower level battles... or at least it used to until everyone got wise and banned the move.

Smack Down is weak in power, but it's generally used for the secondary effect (particularly in doubles and triples), though that effect is a bit esoteric...

I think I have to give this to SD, but just barely.

Because people are voting off of its higher power.

Smackdown is more useful than Iron Tail!

I've never found a use for Smack Down.
Iron Tail at least does more damage.
