Water Torture: A move that inflicts 0 damage on 2-5 consective turns, but produces an few extra rows of annoying text for the player to scroll through during the battle.

Panic Buy: An ability similar to Pick Up, except the Pokemon picks up bottles of hand sanitiser and bags of dried pasta which have absolutely no function in-game. (You may be able to sell them for a hefty mark-up though...)
