Changes

I'm sure there are way more exceptions for Charged Attacks that cannot be selected but i can't confirm right now. the only ones i don't have that i'm confident in are Scatterbug and Spewpa.

A '''move''' (Japanese: '''わざ''' ''move''), also known as an '''attack''' (Japanese: '''こうげきわざ''' ''attack technique'') or '''technique''' (Japanese: '''とくしゅわざ''' ''special technique''), is the skill {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} primarily use in {{pkmn|battle}}. There are currently [[List of moves|826 known moves]] that Pokémon can use. In battle, a Pokémon uses one move each turn. In Generations [[Generation I|I]] to [[Generation VI|VI]] and {{pkmn|Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl}}, some moves (including those learned by [[HM]]) can be used [[Field move|outside of battle]] as well, usually to remove obstacles or explore new areas.

===Learning and unlearning===
Since {{game|Red and Green|s}}, there have been three main methods of acquiring moves on a Pokémon: by [[level]]ing up, by use of [[TM|Technical Machines]] and by use of Hidden Machines. [[Generation II]] added two further methods: [[Egg Move]]s learned through {{pkmn|breeding}}, and moves taught by a [[Move Tutor]]. Starting in [[Generation VII]], some Pokémon learn [[Evolution move|new moves when they evolve]] regardless of their level. In [[Generation VIII]] games where [[TMs]] are reusable, [[TRs]] provide a one-time alternative.

Pokémon obtained via specific methods, such as [[Event Pokémon|events]] or [[purification]], may know "special moves" that they otherwise could not learn.

===Unique moves===
 
===Unique moves===
Some Pokémon have moves specific to themselves or their evolutionary line. These unique moves are known as [[signature move]]s. Some of these moves are powerful moves that only certain [[Legendary Pokémon|Legendary]] and [[Mythical Pokémon]] can learn, such as {{p|Dialga}}'s {{m|Roar of Time}} or {{p|Volcanion}}'s [[Steam Eruption]]. Other moves serve to highlight game mechanics or create unusual effects. One example is {{p|Smeargle}}'s {{m|Sketch}}, which allows it to possess almost every conceivable move.

In {{OBP|Trainer Battle|GO}}s, while Fast Attacks work in a similar fashion, the mechanics of Charged Attacks are changed. A Fast Attack's duration in this mode is measured in "turns", a 0.5-second interval of time. Charged Attacks in Trainer Battles do not have a duration. Instead, the battle is paused for seven seconds while the attacker charges its attack and the opponent decides on using a [[Protect (move)#Pokémon GO|Protect Shield]]. Also, several Charged Attacks have a chance of increasing or decreasing the user's or target's stats, regardless of whether a Protect Shield is used.

The cost varies depending on the Pokémon species and largely corresponds with the distance needed to walk for a [[Buddy Pokémon]] to find a Candy. In addition {{OBP|Shadow Pokémon|GO}}, compared to their base forms, requires 1.2× Stardust and Candy to learn a second Charged Attack, while Purified Pokémon require 0.8× the base amounts.
