This is a list of moves that have appeared in the anime, manga, and TCG that have not appeared in the games.

In the anime

Super Smash Bros. series

Alolan Whip (Japanese: ロープスイング Rope Swing): Incineroar's side B special move in the series. Incineroar dashes towards its opponent, grabs them and then throws them towards wrestling ring ropes. Upon being rebounded by ropes, Incineroar has to press the B button to perform a move against the oncoming opponent. Pressing B too early will make Incineroar do a weak back-body drop. Pressing B too late will result in the move failing, dealing recoil to Incineroar. Pressing B at just the right time will make Incineroar do a strong lariat. This is the only special move in Smash Bros. with no basis from the Pokémon franchise.
Puff Up (Japanese: おおきくなる Grow): Jigglypuff's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Jigglypuff grows to an enormous size, taking up most of the stage. Jigglypuff then lets out a loud cry which blasts foes away. It may be Uproar or Hyper Voice. After it cries, it shrinks back down to normal size.
Aura Storm (Japanese: はどうのあらし Wave Storm): Lucario's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Lucario will rise to the top of the screen, then let out a powerful beam of aura that can be angled. This move lasts for a short period of time. Lucario will return to where he once was when the move is over. Like all of Lucario's moves, this attack becomes more powerful as Lucario's damage increases.
Thunder Jolt (Japanese: でんげき Electric Attack): Pikachu's standard B special move in the series, taken from a Pikachu TCG card. Pikachu will let off a small blue ball of electricity which will steadily fall until it hits a surface, in which it'll move in a waving pattern on that surface (up walls, over and under too) for a brief period of time. It'll deal damage when someone else touches it. Pichu has this move in Super Smash Bros. Melee also, but it is stronger and, as with all of Pichu's electric moves in that game, does a little bit of damage to Pichu when it uses it. However, in the French translation, this move is referred as Thunderbolt (Tonnerre in French).

In the manga


Pokémon Adventures

OX□♥○: Blastoise hits the opponent by releasing its water cannons, used to defeat Bruno's Hitmonlee.
MegaVolt (Japanese: 100まんボルト 1,000,000 Volts): a stronger version of Thunderbolt (10 times the strength), used to defeat Lance.
Super Rising Thunder (Japanese: 超ライジングサンダー Super Rising Thunder): A stronger version of Thunder, used to defeat the Masked Man. In PSs2, it was revealed to actually be the move Volt Tackle, but Gold came up with the name Super Rising Thunder because he did not know its real name.
