What's the most pointless move?

Focus Energy.

"The wild Rattata's getting pumped!"

Apparently increases crit chance on your next attack. But attacking twice (assuming hit) would do the same damage unless your opponent had many defense increases.And it doesn't guarantee a crit, anyway.


It could be useful if you are low on PP, to make the most of that last attack.

Either that or if the opponent is flying etc and you won't be able to hit.


No, cause everytime my opponent uses Focus Attack, it's dead by the 2nd turn.


But... Focus Attack isn't just for one turn, works as a buff for the entire battle, reseting with switching, isn't that right?

Sky Attack


Sky attack, while bad, at least has/had its uses. 140 base is strong, plus it could flinch.
you could make it semi-viable with the power herb.

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that. Plus, there aren't many strong physical Flying-type moves. But 140? I thought it was weaker than that. And let me check, Razor Wind is... Exactly 80. 22 weaker than a Return, 5 weaker than a Body Slam, and takes two turns. Okay '>_>


Return and BS can't SE anything, though.


Neither can razor wind. >_>

I'm surprised that some people think a move that does absolutely nothing ever except take 40 turns to give access to Struggle (which is more useful than aforementioned move) is better than moves that are just situational, but can have an actual effect, or even moves that, while are just bad, at least do something.

EDIT

Also this. Not even electrifying.

Synchronoise and Quash.
No point to either of them, really.


These.

Worse than splash.

Splash! It literally does nothing.

/topic?

No matter how useless any other move is, this is the only one to do nothing at all worthwhile.

For example, at least Synchronoise can do damage, and Water Sport can weaken fire without enabling perfect accuracy Thunders and Hurricanes.

Well, having another look, Razor Wind can hit two foes at once, has perfect accuracy and increased critical ratio, also a special move. I think it can stand on its own. : )

Kinesis.

Only Kadabra and Alakazam have it, but it's only via Move Relearner. It is an 80 accuracy move that lowers the foe's accuracy by one stage.

Also, Egg Bomb and Barrage.
