Default Moves that look good on the show, but suck in the games

Lets see:

Vine Whip: Chikorita and Bulbasaur kick serious ass with it, but in the games this move sucks. It doesnt have enough power to be limited to 10 PP.

Water Gun: Everytime I see this move used in the show. It is some big blast of water that is powerful as Hydro Pump. But in the game its a few drops of water.

Fire Spin: I saw two episodes where fire spin looked cool. When Blaines Ninetales used it. Then when Ash's Charmander beat Koga with it. Then I used it in the game when I had Ninetales. It was one of the crappiest moves ever.

That was fire blast, and it was the Japanese kanji symbol for fire

It looks like that in the game, well in RBY. It goes through a loop of circles though in GSC before showing the symbol.

I'd have to say, Double-Edge isn't all that great in the game. In the show, Chimecho glowed yellow. In the game, it is a simple charge.

I like the fact that some moves are overrated in the show, it makes it better to watch.

Gust is the all-in-one attack in the anime, being able to both blow attacks away from you or blow the attacks back at the enemy.

And Doubleslap with Skitty, being powerful enough to send back a ghost attack

All I can say is the pokemon in the 'real life' world of the anime sure have better defenses than game pokemon

TO me, Vital Throw, REvenge, DOuble slap, and Bullet Seed are lame. Outrage also seems wrong. Meowth doesn't even use Pay Day on the Anime!

Nobody's used a Moonstone on Jigglypuff, or told how the Espeon/Umbreon change from Eevee. How does say the Kingra form if Seadra has to be traded with Dragon Scale, did Claire make a trade off with her Seadra (I know, like over 6 years ago, but I still like Claire.)
