    Scald sounds really dumb to me. But it's one of my favorite new moves.

    Scald. Epic. Enough said. Why didn't anyone think of doing that earlier?

    And by extension: Evil Eye...or in English...Hex. I swear, the direct Japanese translations are much much better then the localizations...in some cases, that is. Like Afro Break, Boiling Water, and Evil Eye.

    But, digression aside, Hex + Scald on a Jellicent = awesome. Burn, then doubled Hex power.

    Blue Flare, but I like its Japanese name better :D. I also really like Scald, Searing Shot, V-create and Psystrike.

    Acrobatics and Electro Ball are my favourites, but Psyshock, Electro Net and Hex are also cool. Slightly off topic but the ability Prankster ( Mischievous Heart sounds better) is awesome!

    With the exception of Quiver Dance, Scald, Volt Switch, Wild Charge, Afro Break, Acrobatics and a few others I think all of the new moves suck. I realized none of my Pokemon have moves introduced in generation V. A lot of the Pokemon are better off using the old moves.

    Also, every TM given to you by the gym leaders (except acrobatics, volt witch and bulldoze) has been pure crap. Psyshock is alright, but it only has use for one Pokemon. That Pokemon isn't even a nuisance if you don't play competitive.

    But you can only scald with boiling water. With Head Charge, it could be any old, unafro'd head. And that's just sick and wrong.

    - Acrobactics for the win.

    - Scald

    - Butterfly Dance


    It's a shame what the dubbers did with Bouffalant and Afro Break. Bouffalant is not a bad name, but they moved any reference to Afro, maybe to avoid racism issues. Yeah, I think that's stupid, since "afro" is now more asocciated to a hairstyle than a race, but some anti-racism organizations are stupidly radical and sensitive... do you remember the Jynx issue?

    Scald.
    Man that move is just killer!

    Volt Switch.
    For the amount of time I had the Pokemon that knew the move (Blitzle), to me, this has to be one of the best new electirc attacks out there.

    Quiver Dance. It has a nice animation and it goes great with Petal Dance.

    Let's see...

    • Cotton Guard - What a move! It raises Defence by 3 levels! Great for the learners, like Altaria and Whimsicott!
    • Entrainment - In some ways, sharing is caring, and sometimes it is daring, because Durant might risk its life to turn the opponent into a slob.
    • Quiver Dance - Obviously, a move that makes the user more powerful in three ways is extremely handy to have.
    • Coil - I like how snakes have a powerful weapon in the arsenal. Serperior definitely appreciates it.
    • Acid Spray - It's like Rock Smash, but much better.


    I think there are more, but these are the ones I consider as ones I like.

    Thanks for reading.

    My favorite would be StruggleBug, but that would be because I like Sewaddle, and the thought of it using the move is just so cute! xD

    As for battling reasons, I have to say Work Up, and Foul Play.
