Spikes and Toxic Spikes (in Gen II)

Whatever effect they had in Gen II, they are a major force now, and they paved the way for Stealth Rock, the best example of this.

Rain Dance/Sunny Day/Sandstorm (in Gen II)

As moves, they are useful, but not overwhelming. However, without the moves, we wouldn't have had the Abilities, and the Abilities are nothing short of metagame-defining in Gen V, especially Drizzle.

Shell Smash

A chief contender for the best boosting move in the game. Very few moves can define a set; this is one of them.

Baton Pass

Speaking of moves that define a set, Baton Pass is another one of those, especially when coupled with a good boost move, but simple stuff like Swords Dance, Nasty Plot, or Agility will work.
For those of you starting topics about the PS4, there's a PS4 board:

Swords Dance and Dragon Dance.

Can we count abilities, too?
Cuz then I'd say Drizzle and Drought.
