    Yeah, but I really only use Healing Wish and Destiny Bond.

    But it can only be used when your Pokemon is about to faint. So you have to let your Pokemon faint for it to be successful. Therefore, it is, albeit indirectly, a sacrificial move.

    I used to use SelfDestruct and Explosion, until they nerfed them in B/W.

    Fun battling my sister with my hacked Pokemon. Have a Pokemon use Momento, then switch to Shadow Tag Gothitelle. Obviously not good for longer battles, but it's fun for making my sister rage. HACKING TROLL LOLOL good times. xD; I'm so bad.

    In serious battles, though, I'd only use Explosion if a) I had no chance of winning and wanted to lose with a bang, or 2) in Double Battles where my partner is ghost/used Protect.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    A few years back, I made a team solely on the fact that they all had learned either Explosion or Self-destruct. Needless to say, they weren't very useful, but it was so much fun.

    The only time that I use sacrificial moves is when my Pokemon's health is pretty low.
    And even then, I only use support moves.

    Nope. Only used Selfdestruct once when my Geodude had 1HP left, while battling Jasmine.

    No. Never have, never will. Why am I going to ask any member of my team to hurt itself? So no, not for me, thank you very much.

    I'm not going to lie, I love sacrificial moves just so I can annoy my friends.

    Destiny Bond is a personal favorite of mine.
    My official Black 2 team.

    Some days it's a good day to die. Other times it's just a good day to have breakfast.

    I have used them before, and by "used" I mean "PRESS IT EVERY TIME IT SHOWS UP"

    But the longer I've played, the less I tend to use them. I still use things like Destiny Bond.
    Stuff like Selfdestruct and things though, I use only when I'm playing leisurely.
    Don't try to say you've forgotten about me.
    I know the thought of us is creeping in your mind.
    You drove me crazy, now there's no maybe.
    So grab your guns, and pick your side.
    Because this means war.
