List of Pokemon Moves

Pokemon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow don’t have an official move dex within the game. However, through various written and digital guides, a collection has become available online. I took the info, boiled it down to stats everyone needs to know, and gave a short description.

In the first generation, moves were called moves, attacks, techniques, and abilities. Each has a name, type, base power, base accuracy, and power points—or the amount of times it can be used. PP can be restored with items. Both power and accuracy can be either increased or decreased through several techniques, increased with items, or neutralized with Haze or switching out from battle. If an attack sharply increases a stat, that just means the move increased the stat two stages instead of one.
