This article is about the Field Moves in Pokémon Ranger games. For the moves usable out of the battle in the core games, see Field move.

Field Moves (Japanese: フィールドわざ Field Move) are special moves Pokémon can use outside of battles in Pokémon Ranger, Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, and Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.

Pokémon Ranger

They were first introduced in Pokémon Ranger and are primarily used to remove an obstacle of some sort. They are similar to Hidden Machine moves from the traditional games, and two of them share names with the traditional HMs.

Aside from "Flash" and "Cross", all Field Moves come in 3 different levels of power, such as "Tackle ×1", "Tackle ×2", and "Tackle ×3".

Move Function
  Burn Set objects on fire
  Cross Cross a gap
  Crush Destroy an object with physical force
  Cut Slice objects
  Flash Light up dark areas
  Gust Blow things away with a strong wind
  Recharge Restore the styler's energy
  Soak Shoot out water
  Tackle Push an object

Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia

 
Artwork of some Field Moves

In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, Field Moves have changed. Some Field Move levels have gone up to ×5, but most have stayed the way Pokémon Ranger had them- only going up to ×3. Unlike in the original Pokémon Ranger, the only Pokémon that don't have a Field Move are the ones that either can't be kept or the ones that are partners. Also Gust using Pokémon have either changed to Cut or in one exception, Demist. Cross has been split from one Field Move used only to swing on posts to a variety of different traveling moves that involve riding on Pokémon over a variety of different terrains. Also, many new Field Moves have been created, some of which are unique, used only by certain Pokémon in certain places. These are called Map Moves and Area Moves. Both are types of Field Moves that are not used for Target Clear. The latter, such as Magma Flow, is only used when there is a question mark that appears above the player's head.
