What is your least favourite HM?

    Out of all hm's, which one is the dumbest?
    I personally think "Defog" was the dumbest, it was something that should not have been in the game, it had no major purpose. Similar to flash, but I prefer flash because it had a better in-battle purpose.

    Defog by far. It was not neccasary to complete diamond, pearl or platinum. It just made it easier to get through a few routes. Plus it was a bad move and required the move deleter to get rid of.

    I agree with Defog. And I also hate Whirlpool in GSC/HGSS.

    I was about to say Cut because it's not very strong and it can't have super effective damage against anything. I remembered Defog now, lowering evasion is not something I can see myself using. At least it can get rid of Light Screen and Reflect though.

    What was the point of Defog really
    Nothing about Fog is cool at all seriously

    My questions and thoughts on the HMs (as if you all care)
    Why do Surf and Waterfall summon massive amounts of water in battle while they do nothing but allow passage outside?
    Why is Rock Smash so weak in battle?
    Why is Strength a Normal type move but is shown dropping a rock on the opponent? Should it not just show a strong punch or push?
    I wish Cut was a Fire type HM that burned the trees blocking your path. This is mostly so we can have more than just a million Normal type HMs.
    Does Dive summon water to dive into (same with Dig on water) or am I confused as to what these moves actually do in battle?

    Defogger is absolutely horrible. No use except for making, like, three or so routes available to travel on easier. There was absolutely no other reason for it.

    Defog, Rock Climb (I hate you with a burning passion), Rock Smash, Flash, and Whirpool. Can't stand them XD

    Defog, Flash and Whirlpool. These are the only right answers. At least Rock Smash and Rock Climb are okay moves.

    Defog is by far the worst hm ever! The only use for it was to help clear the view on very few routes. For battle purposes your better off using a different move period for defog is a complete waste of a move slot.

    I had forgotten about Defog, but yeah, Defog, whirlpool and flash as pretty bad. Of course, now that flash is gone, Defog. I also don't like Dive very much....

    Defog by whaat people have been saying. But I haven't played any pokemon games with the HM defog.
    Flash is probably one of the HM's I hate. I never use it in battle and it only gives u more sight in caves so you know when you might run into a trainer or a find an item.I really dont like flash.
    Cut is probablt themost one I hate. It needs to be deleted by a move deleter (as usual for HM) but it usually is obtained earily in some of the games and the move deleter is about a few gm badges away. Cut doesn't do much damage or help me out at all. I hate cut. Unless I cut a tree and get something cool, otherwise no. I hate cut.
    Also I dont like whirlpool. It didn't do much damage and it doesn't do much still. Even against a fire type it doesnt do good enough damage than my other moves. I had to go catch a bunch of tentacools just so I could not put whirlpool on my starter ferligater. Whirlpool crosing takes a long time too. AT LEAST THERE IS NO WILD ENCOUNTERS... but just when you take another step you usually find another magikarp or something!

    I like dive for its purpose in the out of battle context, but as a move itself...yeah, it wasn't the best.

    Defog. The most useless HM. Flash too.

    Defog and Flash, so useless. You don't even need to use them to get through the game. I also don't like Rock Climb, but that's required. So lucky they demoted Flash and removed Rock Climb as an HM in Gen 5.

    Cut.... even defog or flash could have a use, in game that is. Cut though is a physical based waste of space and with so many moves normal types for physical damage those little trees that hinder the path are just annoying. If they had a 10000 poke dollar gardening service to perma- remove a tree in the path I would gleefully pay up and consider it a good investment.

    (·-·)(o_O) oh hai there

    Defog, useless in more ways than one. And also rock smash.
