What's the most powerful move to teach to a Pokémon?
Everyone knows that Splash is the lamest. Period.
In the other hand, which is the most powerful? Is it Hyper Beam? Fire Blast? Or even the cool Hydro Pump?

Depends on the pokemon, and depends on whether you want damage alone or actual usefulness as well. --- gbchaosmaster

I assume you mean highest base power.
#4Rokon37Posted 10/12/2008 5:38:30 PM
Explosion has the highest base power of any move, 250. Also, because the move halves your opponents defense before it deals damage, it has an effective attack power of 500.
The most damaging moves that don't involve suicide are Hyper Beam, Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, and Hydro Cannon with 150 base power, but they require you to miss a turn to recharge afterward. Overheat and Frenzy Plant have 140 base power but lower your special attack two stages after use. Hydro Pump, Blizzard, Fire Blast, and Thunder have 120 but only 70% accuracy. Zap Cannon is also 120 and always paralyzes but only has 50% accuracy.
So yeah, they're powerful, but they all have some drawbacks.

I thought Zap Cannon is 100. Just pointing that out... Also, Flail/Reversal cap at 200, don't they? But other than that, Explosion is the strongest move, barring OHKO and scaled damage moves. --- Wait..... so if I'm a noob, and a noob is better than nobody, and nobody's perfect..... I'm better than perfect?
