What's the most pointless move?

#1_____CaitPosted 9/20/2013 8:10:27 PM
Not counting starting moves like

Tackle
Tail whip
Growl
Leer

And all those sorts of attacks.

Any move that steals items seems pretty pointless to me..

The answer is always Splash. After that, Constrict.

Oh and Cut's definitely up there. It's even worse than Tackle as of Gen 5.

Generation 30: The first time you see this, copy it into your own signature (on any forum) and add one to the generation number. Social experiment.

Tell that to the Rotom-W that tricked a Scarf onto my Chansey.

But to answer the topic question, Snatch.

The answers are:


1) Splash

2) Any move that doesn't affect the target (Electric attack on a Ground type)

3) Any move used during the invulnerability stage of 2-turn moves like Fly (unless they actually hit, like Gust against Fly)

4) Anything that either gets interrupted (getting hit before Focus Punch goes off) or fails because of gained immunity (like from Protect)

5) Any move that doesn't hit because of a dodge, miss or halt from Paralyze/Attract/etc
