What was/is the coolest gen 1 attack animation?
Fire Blast and Surf are major contenders, but Thunder was/is my favorite.
I love Bubble Beam, if only because of how dramatic it was for what basically amounts to an early game water move that's more or less just shooting bubbles at the opponent really hard.
If we're talking about sounds, I was always a sucker for the old sing sound.
Gen two had some of my favorite move animations. Hyper bean, Psybeam, Night Shade, and any of the other moves that would turn the screen dark during the move animation were some of my favorite, along with the nostalgic Gameboy sound effects to the move. Not to say move animations have gotten worse over time. In gens 3 and 4, they got pretty lame, but gen 6 had outstanding ones like Retaliate, Brave Bird, and Dragon Accent
Psychic has nice wave lines effects as well as a pleasant sound. Gen 1 has the best animation of it.
I personally love the sound Ice Beam, Surf and Hydro Pump make as well.
>slot machine sounds
>Kickass animations are wasted time
Another really good one
You don't see it much in game.
Who can use it, other than Gastly line?
I wanted my Drowzee to learn it since the guy who gives it to you mentions Dowzee by name, but it's not compatible.
I liked Psychic because it made the text box all wavy.
In Pokémon Stadium (That also counts as gen-1, right?), I really loved Night Shade. The little "Ping" at the end sounded so damn cool.
