    Normal: Recover
    Grass: Spore
    Fire: Fire Lash
    Water: Fishious Rend
    Bug: First Impression
    Flying: Max Airstream (if that counts)
    Electric: Charge Beam
    Ground: Spikes
    Rock: Ancient Power
    Fighting: Octolock
    Poison: Acid Spray
    Psychic: Heart Swap
    Ghost: Curse
    Dragon: Roar of Time
    Ice: Freeze-Dry
    Dark: Knock Off
    Steel: Doom Desire
    Fairy: Geomancy

    Most of these come from either nostalgia, competitive use, or having a really unique concept. My favorite of all of these is probably Knock Off, but I'm not certain; I don't feel too strongly on any of these even if it was obvious to me in most cases.

    Poké Ball ★Trainer Card - Cave Theme
    Transform, get to peek at your opponents moveset and power up potentially. Its a great curveball. (Runner ups are Fake Out and Encore)

    Will-O-Wisp, burns attack cut has gotten me out of so many bad spots. Plus its fun to use with a guts partner if you dont have a flame orb lying around. (Runner up: Overheat and Flamewheel)

    Surf, its a classic! The animation is pretty much always cool, its useful out of game and shows up on surprising 'mons. Looking at you Rhydon. (Runner up: Crabhammer)

    Giga Drain: I like recovery moves, especially when I am playing with restrictions on items and/or nuzlockes and this is one of the best ones. Lets you get a bit of damage in while you are at it. (Runner up: Leaf blade and Leech Seed)

    Shockwave: In my favorite animations of all time in Gen 3, this puts it ahead of Thunderbolt just by a bit though. (Runner ups: Thunderbolt and Thunderwave)

    Ancient Power: Neat animation, cool name and a fun gamble for stats. Bonus points for birthing one of my favorite comics: https://i.imgur.com/dTwjh.png (Runner up: Rock slide)

    Earthquake: Would be hard to pick another. Its strong, its widespread in the movepools and it looks pretty cool in most games. (Runner ups: Precipice Blades for the name honestly and Bonemerang which reallllly should be the one ground type move to hit flying types. Give it that niche Game Freak, cmon!

    Ice Shard: It might not show so far but I love priority moves and Ice Shard helps the typically slow ice types get some damage in right on time. (Runner ups: Blizzard and Aurora Beam)

    Bug Buzz: Good power, fun animation most of the time and the fun side effect of going through substitutes which everyone forgets about online. (Runner ups: Quiver Dance for making low tier Pokémon that I like a threat and U-turn for being so damn useful)

    Trick: Its unique, it can have really fun uses and show up on Pokémon you dont expect. Ticks all the right boxes for me. (Runner ups: Mirror Coat and Psyshock)

    Snatch: It always catches people unaware and can really turn the tide on online battles. It can steal some surprising moves, like Wish. (Runner up: Sucker Punch)

    Heavy Slam: Its thematic and hits pretty hard and consistently. Helps fill out M-Aggron's movepool which is perfect for me. (Runner ups: Bullet punch and shift gear)

    Shadow Sneak: Protean Kecleon's bread and butter. Great priority move, helps some of the slower ghosts that I like get the damage in when they need it. (Runner ups: Curse and Shadow Claw)

    Draco Meteor: Hits hard, looks cool. That's what dragons are all about! (Runner up: Dragon Dance)

    Draining Kiss: Self-recovery and decent damage. Simple and effective. (Runner up: Crafty Shield)

    Drill Peck: Shows up in some unexpected places, decent power and neat animations in some games. (Runner ups: Mirror move and Beak Blast)

    Toxic: Love to hate it. The move that has both saved me and ruined my runs in equal measure. (Runner ups: Coil and Gunk shot.)

    Drain Punch: Similar to the above, I love a recovery move that deals damage. Helps out Life orb users so much. (Runner ups: Power Up punch for making Kecleon sweeps more possible and No Retreat.)
