Battle Animations

As everyone knows, battles are a main component of pokemon games. All battles are comprised of each pokemon's attacks with their respective animations. Every attack has a different animation that keeps the player's focus to the screen.

With that said, I ask all of you this: what do you think of each attack animations? Discuss here your favorite, least favorite, etc. attack animations from any of the games. You may talk about any generation, any game, INCLUDING Battle Revolution and any of the games that fall under the pokemon franchise.

This thread is only for the attacks' animations, not the attack statistics.
Please abise by the forum rules.

I think some of my favorites are the Overheat/Leaf Storm/Draco Meteor, all those Sp Atks that lower Sp Atk stat by two stages after use.


That said, I typically play with battle animations off unless I'm in an "important" battle such as with rivals, E4, Gym Leaders, or the head of the Evil Team. It gets tiring seeing the same 2 dozen moves over and over again.

I personally like Tackle one :p

not really, but Thunder is a favorite as usual.

I like Leaf Blade. Swish-slash-slice!

I leave them on because I'm used to them. It'd feel rushed if I had them off.

Head Charge is pretty amusing, and Dark Pulse sounds and looks EPIC. The few times I've seen it, Eruption's pretty neat as well.
Night Daze is neat, but it resembles Dark Pulse a little too much. X)

Discharge's animation is interesting. Gear Grind looks dangerous. And Draco Meteor looks powerful.
These are the move animations I like.

I actually like leaf blade in ruby better. It had that cool "slashing" animation.

Explosion, though it would be slightly cooler if you saw the Pokemon's bits flying across the screen.

Couldn't agree more.

On the subject of older animations, they should bring back the RBY sound effect for Hyper-beam. Sure it was low quality, but god it was a good sound.

I love this avvy
Surf looks really impressive in Triple Battles or Double Battles.
I love Fusion Bolt as well.
