==Effect==
A description of the move's effect. If the move's effect varies between generations, differences should be specified in subsections titled with the generation (for instance, ===Generation III===). If other moves have similar or identical effects, try to keep the wording consistent between all of them. For moves that have an effect outside of battle, please add: ===In battle=== and ===Out of battle===. If applicable, place them under the correct Generation.

===Special move===

Templates: {{Movehead/Special}}, {{Moveentry/1}}, {{Movefoot}}

If a Pokémon has a move exclusive to an in-game gift or trade (or one from a side series or spin-off gamem, such as Pokémon HOME or Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire), purification, or when caught in a specific place (i.e. Pokéwalker or Dream World), then that move is listed as a special move. Indicate each the generation the move it appears as a special move with a subsection (for instance, ===Generation IV===).

Moves are included here even if the Pokémon learns it by other ways if it is only learned by the following ways:

  • TM/HM/TR
  • Move Tutor
  • Egg move
  • Light Ball breeding
  • Pre-evolution-exclusive
  • Previous generation-exclusive
  • Sketch

Indicate each the generation the move it appears as a special move with a subsection (for instance, ===Generation IV===).

Moves are included here even if the Pokémon learns it by other ways if it is only learned by the following ways:

  • Egg move
  • Light Ball breeding
  • Pre-evolution-exclusive
  • Previous generation-exclusive
  • Sketch
  • Special or event move
  • Level-up move learned at a later level (the level the Pokémon is obtained at is noted)
    • This is not included in Generation VII, where Pokémon can learn level-up moves at any level using the Move Reminder.
