    Default Surf vs. Thunderbolt vs. Flamethrower vs. Ice beam

    They all have 95 power. They all have 100% accuracy. With their wide coverage, they are essential for any team. But which is the best?

    Surf is a water move, Vaporeon is a water pokemon and also my fav. That pretty much sums it up.

    Thunderbolt for it's gen III animation. I hate how surf now hits everyone in gen IV and V.

    Surf. If surf, ice beam, flamethrower and thunderbolt were used by 4 pokémon attacking the same thing and the attacks mixed, then ice beam would be melted by surf/flamethrower, flamethrower would be destroyed by surf and thunderbolt would boost surf's power. So they would be the only moves that weren't destroyed. Well, in an anime fight.

    Flamethrower. It's one of those moves that helps out greatly when fighting against Steel types.

    Nothing is immune to Ice Beam, so I went with that. Surf has better neutral coverage, though.

    90% of the time I go with a Fire/Grass/Water/Electric/Flying/Wild Card team so for me they're all equal. The Wild Card is an Ice type quite a few times because of the Dragon types I've to face during the game.


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?

    All of these are great moves and I use them all because they're convenient and high-powered, but Surf wins it for me. Mostly because of it's HM status, I haven't had one Pokemon Game version where I have not had a Pokemon without Surf as a move. Before Gen V it was the best Water move (Special) that you could teach your Pokemon during the game without having it run out.

    Oh, GENV also introduced a new Special, 95BP, 100% Attack btw. It's called Slime Wave and it is a Poison-Type move. Just putting that out there.

    Surf. Arguably one of the best HMs and its effective on more types.

    Thunderbolt. Power. UNLIMITED POWER!

    I like electric attacks.

    In Black/White, TMs no longer disappear after you use them, so it's safe to say they're all HMs now. xP

    I love all four of these moves but went with Thunderbolt because electric is my favorite type.
