Not quite sure whether I'm allowed to post this, but I'm interested in the discussion, so here goes! Which moves do you think are the most significant moves introduced each generation in the generation they were introduced? Basically, which Gen 1 moves are most influential in RBY, which new Gen 2 moves are most influential in GSC, etc. Having never played RBY, here are my ideas for the other three gens. GSC 5. Pursuit: Not even switching is safe... 4. Baton Pass: The birth of the most hated team archetype. 3. Sleep Talk: It's easier to fall asleep 2. Spikes/Rapid Spin: The heart of competitive Pokemon is switching. Guess what this punishes? 1. Hidden Power: One 70 BP move of any type at all. ADV 5. Will-O-Wisp: Burn is a viable status now. 4. Focus Punch: A nice 150 BP reward for good prediction, and a way to beat Blissey/Snorlax/Regice. 3. Wish: Suddenly, the whole team gets recovery. 2. Calm Mind: No weak. 1. Dragon Dance: When dinosaurs ruled advance. DPP 5. Roost: 50% recovery is nothing special anymore. 4. Focus Blast: There is no alternative. 3. Close Combat: 120 BP, 100 Accuracy. The power is creeping. 2. U-turn: Free momentum. 1. Stealth Rock: Did anyone not see this coming? Thoughts?
