- 11/8/02 - A pseudo-update... I only added the dedications section here.  
Thanks guys, and I'm gonna miss ya'll.
- Final Version, 10/16/02 - Made some format changes and corrected the 
incorrect values.  Okay, so I didn't get the final update completed until 
seven months after I originally expected, but here it is.  Enjoy.
- Version 0.2, 3/27/02 - Added the Battle Damage Formula and made a few other 
minor changes.  Expect to see another update sometime soon, as I need to get 
the values for stat-falls correct.  Note that the values currently there are 
not correct.
 - Version 0.1, 12/30/01 - First release of this FAQ.  Contains complete 
analysis of all attacks and a complete reference chart.  I may add more in the 
future, or this could be it.

| 3.) Some Simple Base Damage Formulas |/
0======================================0

The base damage listed in the list below has no STAB factored in.  STAB stands 
for Same Type Attack Bonus, and it is added in when the user is the same type 
of the attack (for example, a Vileplume using Absorb would get STAB for the 
attack).  To figure out the base power for an attack after STAB, use this 
simple formula:

STAB = base damage of the attack * 1.5 

So, a Vileplume's Absorb would be 20 * 1.5 = 30.
(One of 20 is 20, one-half of 20 is 10, 20 + 10 = 30.)

Also, no type effectiveness is factored in.  The formula for type 
effectiveness is:

Type effectiveness = base damage of the attack (STAB or not) * 2

So, if Vileplume used Absorb on Sandslash who is a Ground type and is weak to 
Grass, it would be:

-STAB-  -TE-
20 * 1.5 * 2 = 60 total base damage

If Vileplume used Absorb on Rhydon, who is a Rock and a Ground type, both of 
which are weak to Grass, it would be:

-STAB-  -TE--TE-
20 * 1.5 * 2 * 2 = 120 total base damage

Simple, ne?

| 4.) The Battle Damage Formula |/
0===============================0

Okay, admit it.  This is the real reason you all came here.  You want the 
battle damage formula.

Use this formula to find out the range or damage that your Pokemon's attack 
will cause.  Granted, you don't need a piece of paper and/or a calculator to 
play the game, but this is really just for general information anyway.

((2A/5)+2)*B*C)/D)/50)+2)*X)*Y/10)*Z)/255 
 
A = Attacker's level, simple enough, no real explanation needed.  To 
determine how much damage an attack will do if it is a critical hit, multiply 
the level by 2.  Remember to add 2 after you divide by 5. 
B = Attacker's Attack or Special Attack... once again, nothing glamorous 
C = This is the attack's base damage. Do NOT factor in STAB, strengths, 
weaknesses, or anything like that yet. They come in later. If you're trying 
to figure out how much damage a Dugtrio's Earthquake will do to a Jolteon, 
place 100 here, not 300.  You do, however, factor in Rain Dance/Sunny Day 
boosts/losses.  If Rain Dance/Sunny Day is in effect and it helps, multiply 
by 1.5.  If they are in effect and they hurt, divide by 1.5. 
D = Defender's Defense or Special Defense here. 
X = This is where STAB gets factored in. If the user gets STAB, plug in 1.5. 
If not, plug in 1. 
Y = This is where strengths and weaknesses get factored in. If the opponent 
is 4x weak to the attack (example, a Forretress getting hit with 
Flamethrower), plug in 40. If the opponent is 2x weak to the attack (example, 
a Blastoise getting hit with Thunderbolt), plug in 20. If the opponent is 
neither weak to nor resists the attack (example, a Sandslash getting hit with 
Body Slam), plug in 10. If the opponent has a 2x resistance to the attack 
(example, a Meganium getting hit with Surf), plug in 5. If the opponent has a 
4x resistance to the attack (for example, a Dragonite getting hit with Cross 
Chop), plug in 2.5. And finally, if the opponent is immune to the attack (for 
example, a Zapdos getting "hit" with Earthquake), plug in 0. 
Z = This is a random number between 217 and 255.  You have no control over 
this. This simply concerns the range of damage that the attack can 
potentially do. The range was selected for hexadecimal purposes. 
 
That may look a little confusing, but once you start plugging numbers in it's 
not so bad.

 / 5.) The Critical Hit Formula /|
0==============================0 0
| 5.) The Critical Hit Formula |/
0==============================0

This will get confusing, so bare with me.

In GSC, critical hits are determined by a variable and a random number (from 
1 to 256). If the random number is less then the variable, then the attack 
will hit critical. 
 
The variable starts at zero and is determined by a few things: 
If Chansey or Farfetch'd have the Lucky Punch or the Stick equipped, +2. 
If the attack is Slash, Razor Leaf, Razor Wind, Karate Chop, Crabhammer, Aero 
Blast or Cross Chop, +2. 
If the Pokemon has used Focus Energy, +1. 
If the Pokemon has the Scope Lens equipped, +1. 
 
If the variable is 0, the random number must be lower then 17 (6.6% chance). 
1 = 32 (12.5%) 
2 = 64 (25%) 
3 = 85 (33.5%) 
4 = 128 (50%) 
 
So, using Focus Energy with Slash IS a good idea now, as it'll bring Slash's 
critical hit rate from a pathetic 25% to a still sad 33%. Note that 4, or 
50%, is the highest it can go (attach a Scope Lens for this rate).  Don't get 
caught up on that random number business since there's really nothing you can 
do about it anyway.

 / 6.) The Confusion Formula /|
0===========================0 0
| 6.) The Confusion Formula |/
0===========================0

The damage done from a Pokemon that smacks itself while it is confused is not 
constant between different Pokemon.  This is the formula.  Thanks to Azure 
Heights for providing this on their extensive website.

Self-inflicted attacks have a power rating of 40, and cause damage according 
to the following simplified version of the battle damage formula:
[(((2A/5 + 2)*B*40)/C)/50] + 2
A = the confusion victim's Level 
B = the confusion victim's Attack 
C = the confusion victim's Defense

*thwacks self in confusion*

| 7.) Attack List and Analyses |/

The attacks are listed in alphabetical order.

The format is like this:
Attack - Type of Attack - Base damage - Accuracy - PP - PP after 3 PP Ups are 
used (or max PP) - Description

---------
| ~ A ~ |
---------

Absorb - Grass - 20 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Half the damage inflicted is 
given to the user.  It's very weak, but if you must have a drainage attack, 
Giga Drain is better.

Acid - Poison - 40 - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - 9.8% chance of lowering the 
target's Defense.  Again, it's weak.  Even with STAB, it's just not worth it, 
considering that the much more powerful Sludge Bomb is now a TM at our 
disposal.  These are the percentage of the opponent's Defense remaining after 
each Defense fall:
(1st Defense fall) 0.66 times opponent's original Defense
(2nd Defense fall) 0.5 times opponent's original Defense
(3rd Defense fall) 0.4 times opponent's original Defense
(4th Defense fall) 0.33 times opponent's original Defense
(5th Defense fall) 0.28 times opponent's original Defense
(6th Defense fall) 0.25 times opponent's original Defense
So, for example, if I have a Blissey with a Defense of 100 (Defense DV would 
have to be 6), and Acid dropped her defense so many times, her new Defense 
would be:
(1st Defense fall) 100 * 0.66 = 66
(2nd Defense fall) 100 * 0.5 = 50
(3rd Defense fall) 100 * 0.4 = 40
(4th Defense fall) 100 * 0.33 = 33
(5th Defense fall) 100 * 0.28 = 28
(6th Defense fall) 100 * 0.25 = 25
Of course, I picked an easy Defense value to work with.  It is very rarely 
that easy.

Acid Armor - Poison - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Greatly raises the user's 
Defense.  Take the user's Defense and add that same number to the Defense 
every time you use this.  It can be used a maximum of 3 times.  For example, 
my Muk's Defense is 220.  After one Acid Armor, it goes to (220 + 220) 440.  
After 2, it goes to (440 + 220) 660.  After the 3rd and final use, it goes to 
(660 + 220) 880.  It cannot be used anymore.  This attack is quite useful if 
you have an extra move slot on Muk or Vaporeon, but Muk is usually better 
suited with Curse or Screech.

Aeroblast - Flying - 100 - 94.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 25% chance of a 
critical hit.  This attack is Lugia's signature move and is very powerful.

Agility - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Greatly raises the user's 
Speed.  It is figured the same way as Defense is with Acid Armor.  Take the 
user's Speed and add that same number to the Speed value every time it is 
used.  For example, my Scizor's Speed is 220.  After one Agility, it goes to 
(220 + 220) 440.  After 2, it goes to (440 + 220) 660.  After the 3rd and 
final use, it goes to (660 + 220) 880.  It cannot be used anymore.  One 
Agility used will almost always make you faster than every Pokemon in the 
game (where they have not used an Agility).  Electrode, the fastest Pokemon 
in the game, has a max Speed of 378.  I say almost always because I cannot 
recall offhand Smeargle's Speed, so I don't know if it will be faster after 
just one Agility.  May take 2 for Smeargle.

Amnesia - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Greatly raises the user's 
Special Defense.  This follows exactly the same stat-boosting format as Acid 
Armor and Agility; only it uses the Special Defense stat.  Refer to those 
examples if needed, just be sure to replace the Defense/Speed value with the 
Special Defense value. 

Ancientpower - Rock - 60 - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of raising 
ALL of the user's stats.  This stat-rise is not the same as Acid Armor and 
Agility.  It can happen 6 times at most.  To figure it, take half of the 
value being raised and add that number to the current stat value for each 
stat rise.  For example, if my Mew uses Ancientpower and gets the all-stat 
rise, the new Attack stat would look something like this: 
(Assume Mew has a max Attack stat.)
(1st stat-rise) Attack: 298 + (298/2) = 298 + 149 = 447
(2nd stat-rise) Attack: 447 + 149 = 596
(3rd stat-rise) Attack: 596 + 149 = 745
(4th stat-rise) Attack: 745 + 149 = 894
(5th stat-rise) Attack: 894 + 149 = 1043
1043 will fall back to 999, since no stat can go above 999.  Any subsequent 
stat-rise will not make the Attack stat any higher.
I just made this very easy on myself.  Since, at max, Mew's stats are all 
exactly the same (298), they would all be the same after one all-stat raise: 
447.  Add 149 to the current value for each new stat-rise.

Attract (TM 45) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Causes opponents who 
are of the opposite gender of the user to become infatuated.  Opponent will 
be completely infatuated and unable to attack about 50% of the time.  This is 
unarguably the best annoyance tactic in the game. Coupled with confusion or 
paralysis, good things happen.

Aurora Beam - Ice - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
lowering the user's Attack.  The percentages used to figure out the Attack 
drops for Aurora Beam are the same as the stat droppers for Acid and other 
attacks like it.  Anyway, Ice Beam is infinitely better.  Some have argued 
that Aurora Beam is better because it has twice the PP and the chance of the 
Attack-drop, but Ice Beam freezes the opponent at the same rate as Aurora 
Beam drops Attack.  The Attack-drops wear off at a switch, freezes do not.  
Use Ice Beam.  Here are the values for the Attack drops:
(1st Attack fall) 0.66 times opponent's original Attack
(2nd Attack fall) 0.5 times opponent's original Attack
(3rd Attack fall) 0.4 times opponent's original Attack
(4th Attack fall) 0.33 times opponent's original Attack
(5th Attack fall) 0.28 times opponent's original Attack
(6th Attack fall) 0.25 times opponent's original Attack
Let's say, for example, that my 200 Attack Misdreavus was hit with Aurora Beam 
and her Attack has fallen.  Here are the values for her Attack stat after each 
subsequent Attack drop:
(1st Attack fall) 200 * 0.66 = 132
(2nd Attack fall) 200 * 0.5 = 100
(3rd Attack fall) 200 * 0.4 = 80
(4th Attack fall) 200 * 0.33 = 66
(5th Attack fall) 200 * 0.28 = 56
(6th Attack fall) 200 * 0.25 = 50
Once again, 200 is an easy number to work with.  One might wish to have a 
calculator handy to figure stat falls for harder numbers, like 366.

---------
| ~ B ~ |
---------

Barrage - Normal - 15 (per hit) - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Hits the opponent 
2-5 times.  This attack is no good.  Even on 5 hits, that's still a total 
base damage of only 75, and Return scores higher than that per turn (102 base 
damage at max) on the same amount of PP with a 15.5% higher accuracy.

Barrier - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Greatly raises the user's 
Defense.  It works in exactly the same manner as Acid Armor.  There is no 
difference between the two with the exception of Acid Armor's greater PP 
quantity.  Barrier is very good for Baton Passing, but lures out the 
Hazer/pseudo-Hazer like there was no tomorrow.  Reflect is a good option here 
instead since it can provide defense for your entire team.

Baton Pass - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - The user switches out to 
a new Pokemon on the trainer's team of the trainer's choice.  All stat 
changes (positive or negative) are passed to this new Pokemon.  For example, 
if my Smeargle knows Barrier and Baton Pass, and it uses Barrier, and then 
uses Baton Pass and I switch out to Vaporeon, Vaporeon comes out with that 
Barrier up for it.  However, if my Smeargle uses Barrier and the enemy uses 
Charm, and I Baton Pass to Vaporeon, Vaporeon comes out with the raised 
Defense and the lowered Attack.  No biggie.

Beat Up - Dark - 10 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - All members remaining on the 
trainer's team will come out and attack with the same base damage.  Only 
Sneasel and Smeargle can get this attack.  So what does all that gibberish 
mean?  If I have Sneasel, Cloyster, and Arcanine left on my team, and my 
Sneasel uses Beat Up, it will attack with Beat Up.  Then, Cloyster will come 
out and attack with Beat Up.  Then, Arcanine will come out and attack with 
Beat Up.  Unfortunately, it's horribly weak, and considering that the few 
Pokemon that can get if have a somewhat low Special Attack, it is not worth 
it.  It is, however, a lot of fun to use.

Belly Drum - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - The user loses half of 
its total HP, but its Attack reaches its max at 999.  It is equivalent to the 
use of 5 Swords Dances.  Snorlax Belly Drums fairly well.  Clefable Belly 
Drums exceptionally well when she also has Encore.  Belly Drum is, however, 
often overshadowed by Curse since it raises both Attack and Defense and there 
is no cut of HP.  Still, it is a one-turn full-Attack boost.

Bide - Normal - N/A - 100% - 10 PP - 16 PP - The user absorbs all attacks 
from the enemy for 2-3 turns, then returns double the damage to the enemy.  
It never misses.  Is it worth it?  Not at all, considering most idle Pokemon 
can be KOed in 2-3 hits, or if the enemy realizes that it cannot be, they 
will simply not offensively hit you.

Bind - Normal - 15 (initial) - 74.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Attacks, then hurts 
and traps the opponent after they attack for 2-6 turns.  While trapped, the 
opponent cannot switch out.  The first attack that you actually use of Bind 
will have a base damage of 15.  Every hit after the opponent's attack will 
remove 1/16th, or 6.25%, of their health.  This attack is no good.  It's 
weak, it's inaccurate (missing about once out of every 4 uses), and it's 
unreliable.  If you want a trapping move, Baton Pass Mean Look from Umbreon 
or Smeargle.

Bite - Dark - 60 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Deals damage.  Has a 29.7% chance 
of causing the opponent to flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  
This is a fairly good move.  Crunch is its major adversary.  They are close 
in base damage (Bite is 60, Crunch is 80).  They have different advantages.  
Bite can cause the opponent to flinch, Crunch can cause the opponent's 
Special Defense to fall.  Crunch only has 15 initial PP, though.  I toggle 
between the two quite often.  Usually, I go with Crunch for sheer power, but 
on my annoyance-paralysis heavy teams, I go with Bite.

Blizzard (TM 14) - Ice - 120 - 69.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
freezing the opponent.  This used to be the best Ice attack back in RBY days 
when it was 89% accurate, but it has now dropped to the accuracy of Thunder.  
Some may argue that Blizzard is good on Pokemon with a lower Special Attack 
or for sheer power (since some use Thunder for those reasons), but the low PP 
is just not worth it.  Besides, Thunder's paralysis rate is higher than 
Blizzard's freeze rate.  Stick with Ice Beam or Icy Wind (more on that 
later).

Body Slam - Normal - 85 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
paralyzing the opponent.  This is arguably, and in my not-so-humble opinion, 
the best Normal-type attack in the game.  A base damage of 85 is not at all 
bad, and the paralysis rate of about 1 out of every 3 turns is just plain 
sweet.  So often that Body Slam on Steelix, Rhydon, and Muk has paralyzed the 
opponent and given them the Speed advantage for me.  That is dangerous.  The 
raging debate is Body Slam/Return/Double-Edge.  I'll present the facts for 
the 3, and you decide which you prefer.  I personally go with Body Slam 
wherever possible, and Double-Edge on everything else for the sheer power, 
except on Belly Drummers and low-HP Pokemon, where I stick with Return.

Bone Club - Ground - 65 - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
causing the opponent to flinch when the user is faster.  Stick with 
Earthquake for the near-perfect accuracy and power.

Bone Rush - Ground - 25 - 79.9% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Hits the opponent 2-5 
times.  Again, stick with Earthquake for accuracy.

Bonemerang - Ground - 50 - 89.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Always hits the opponent 
twice (total 100 base damage).  The only difference between this and 
Earthquake is that Earthquake is 10.4% more accurate.  Earthquake it is.

Bubble - Water - 20 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of causing 
the opponent's Speed to drop.  Speed drops in the same manner that Aurora 
Beam lowers Attack.  This attack is nothing compared to Surf and Hydro Pump, 
so stick with them.

Bubblebeam - Water - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
causing the opponent's Speed to drop (in the same manner as Bubble).  Again, 
worthless compared to Surf and Hydro Pump.

---------
| ~ C ~ |
---------

Charm - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Greatly reduces the opponent's 
Attack.  Charm is a very good move for Spikes-related teams for forcing 
switches.  Other than that, it is also useful for discouraging Curselax.  Use 
it for confronting Curselax if you have a free space in your team, but if not, 
stick with a Hazer/pseudo-Hazer/Encorer for Curselax.  Charm can be used a 
maximum of 3 times.  Here are the values for an opponent's Attack after Charm 
is used:
(1st Attack fall) 0.5 times user's original Attack
(2nd Attack fall) 0.33 times user's original Attack
(3rd Attack fall) 0.25 times user's original Attack
For example, if my 100 Attack Blissey is hit with Charm, her new Attack values 
will look as such:
(1st Attack fall) 100 * 0.5 = 50
(2nd Attack fall) 100 * 0.33 = 33
(3rd Attack fall) 100 * 0.25 = 25
As you can see, the most substantial Attack drop occurs after the first Charm.  
However, when you're up against something like Snorlax (with a maximum 328 
Attack) or Dragonite or Tyranitar (both with a maximum 366 Attack), all of 
those Attack drops count.

Clamp - Water - 35 (initial) - 74.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Attacks, then hurts 
the opponent for 2-6 turns after they attack, and they cannot switch.  Again, 
useless due to low accuracy and low base damage.

Comet Punch - Normal - 18 - 84.4% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Attacks 2-5 times.  The 
maximum possible base damage you can get out of this is 90, useless compared 
to Body Slam/Return/Double-Edge when you compare accuracy and effects.

Confuse Ray - Ghost - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Confuses the opponent.  
This would be my most favorite attack in the game, right here.  For 
reference, confusion causes the opponent to damage itself about 50% of the 
time.  See the above section titled "The Confusion Formula" for information 
about how the damage done when a Pokemon thwacks itself on the noggin is 
figured out.

Confusion - Psychic - 50 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
confusing the opponent.  Some people like to use it for this reason, but let 
me say that Psychic is infinitely better.  If you want the confusion, go with 
Dynamicpunch.  It confuses every time it hits and it will hit more often than 
Confusion will confuse.  Everything that can get Confusion can also get 
Dynamicpunch, with the exception of Exeggutor (Leech Seed is better anyway), 
Venomoth (go Attract or Whirlwind), and Butterfree (see Venomoth).

Constrict - Normal - 10 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
causing the opponent's Speed to drop (in the same amount as Aurora Beam 
causes the Attack drop).  Absolutely useless.  It's too weak.  Go with Zap 
Cannon or some other paralysis move instead.

Conversion - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Changes Porygon2's type 
into the opponent's type.  It's a fun move, but there are much better moves 
that Porygon2 can get.

Conversion2 - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Changes Porygon2's type 
to a type resistant (or immune) to the last type used against your Pokemon.  
Again, it's a fun move, but yet again, there are many better attacks in 
Porygon2's wide arsenal.

Cotton Spore - Grass - N/A - 84.4% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Greatly reduces the 
opponent's Speed.  Cotton Spore will reduce the opponent's Speed each time it 
is used in the same manner that Charm reduces the opponent's Attack, so refer 
to those values.  It's useless due to lower accuracy than Stun Spore and 
Thunder Wave (considering that everything that can get Cotton Spore can also 
get one of those).

Counter - Fighting - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - When this attack is used, 
the user strikes back with double the damage to the opponent's last physical 
attack.  The user always goes second.  For example, if a Tyranitar uses 
Earthquake on my Raichu and it does 300 points of damage, and my Raichu uses 
Counter, it will do 600 points of damage to Tyranitar.  Simple, yet 
effective. (For reference, Raichu will ALWAYS survive a Tyranitar's 
Earthquake when they are of the same level.)

Crabhammer - Water - 90 - 84.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 25% chance of a 
critical hit.  It was better on Kingler in the RBY days when it scored a CH 
more often, but with the CH rate reduced so much it is now useless.

Cross Chop - Fighting - 100 - 79.7% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 25% chance of a 
critical hit.  It's a very strong Fighting attack, but it misses about once 
every 5 hits.  It's great running off of STAB and Machamp's 358 Attack.

Crunch - Dark - 80 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of reducing 
the opponent's Special Defense (in the same amount as Aurora Beam reduces 
Attack).  It's a strong, reliable attack, especially when backed up by STAB.  
Bite works well too with faster users for that flinch, but it's really 
personal preference as far as annoyance goes.

Curse (TM 03) - ???? - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Increases the user's 
Attack and Defense, but reduces the user's Speed.  To raise Attack and 
Defense, it takes half of the original value and adds that each time Curse is 
used.  For example, if my Qwilfish uses Curse:
Attack: 288
Defense: 248
Speed: 268
-After 1 Curse-
Attack: 288 + (288/2) = 288 + 144 = 432
Defense: 248 + (248/2) = 248 + 124 = 372
Speed: 268 - (0.66 of 268) = 268 - 176.88 = 91.12 = 91
(Knock off all decimals and round down.)
Each subsequent Curse will add 144 to Attack, 124 to Defense, and subtract 
the same percentages as with Aurora Beam Attack-drops from Speed.  Curse can 
be used no more than 6 times, and remember that if a certain stat reaches 
999, it will go no higher.
If Curse is used by a Ghost type, it will halve its HP and put a Curse on the 
opponent, which will take away 1/4 of the opponent's total HP after every 
turn.  Switching rids this effect.  Mean Look is evil when combined with this 
attack.

Cut (HM 01) - Normal - 50 - 94.5% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Cuts down trees on the 
landscape that block your path.  In battle, it's useless.  HM slave, anyone?

---------
| ~ D ~ |
---------

Defense Curl (TM 40) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Raises the 
user's Defense.  Each use will cause the Defense to go up by half of its 
original value.  For example, if my 118 Defense Blissey uses Defense Curl:
New Defense = 118 + (118/2) = 118 + 59 = 177
It will go up 59 points every time Defense Curl is used.  Defense Curl can be 
used no more than 6 times, and may also not be used if the Defense stat 
reaches 999. (You don't have to worry about that with Blissey.) 
In RBY days, some people used Defense Curl on Chansey, and some people used 
Reflect.  Now with Curse around, Defense Curl is practically useless.  Yes, 
there is such thing as a Curse Blissey.  They are out there, but they are 
hard to get set up.

Destiny Bond - Ghost - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - I die, I take you with me.  
If the opponent faints the user on the same turn this attack was used, the 
opponent faints as well.  This is one of the most fun attacks in Crystal.  
It's very useful on faster Pokemon, but practically useless on slower Pokemon 
unless a multi-turn attack is being used.

Detect (TM 43) - Fighting - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Prevents the 
opponent's attack from hitting the user/working on that turn.  Every turn 
that this is used, the accuracy is reduced by half.  For example, if you use 
Detect for 4 turns in a row, the first time the accuracy will be 99.6%, the 
second turn it will be 50%, the third turn it will be 25%, and the fourth 
turn it will be 12.5%.  Alternating turns between uses causes the accuracy to 
reset to 99.6%.  Detect is fun in its concept but is useless because Protect 
is identical to it in every way except that Protect has twice the PP.

Dig (TM 28) - Ground - 60 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - User goes underground 
first turn, attacks second turn.  The base damage is just too low.  
Earthquake is much better.  If the opponent uses Earthquake while you are 
underground, you will lose twice the amount of health that you would normally 
use.

Disable - Normal - N/A - 54.7% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Opponent will be unable to 
use the last attack it used for a few turns if this works.  This is another 
one of those fun moves.  I used an Encore/Disable Alakazam for a while.  That 
was loads of fun.  Disablers are pretty much unexpected and work well in 
conjunction with Encore and Spikes.

Dizzy Punch - Normal - 70 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 19.9% chance of 
confusing the opponent.  It has an interesting side effect, but it is still 
overshadowed by the more powerful, 29.7%-paralysis-rate Body Slam.

Double-Edge - Normal - 120 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - 1/4 of the damage done 
to the opponent is done to the user.  This is a very powerful attack and 
works well on high HP Pokemon like Snorlax, especially when it has Curse 
where Body Slam's paralysis would be useless.  The kickback is negligible 
when Leftovers is attached.

Double Kick - Fighting - 30 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Attacks twice in a row, 
making for a total base damage of 60.  It's useless considering that the 
Hitmons also learn Hi Jump Kick and Mach Punch, both of which are much 
better.

Double Team (TM 32) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Causes the 
user's evasiveness to rise.  It can be used no more than 6 times.  
Evasiveness is as such:
1st Double Team: 34.1%
2nd Double Team: 50.0%
3rd Double Team: 55.8%
4th Double Team: 59.6%
5th Double Team: 67.1%
6th Double Team: 71.6%
As you can see, your greatest advantage comes from the first two.
Very annoying and cheap, cheap, cheap.

Doubleslap - Normal - 15 - 84.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Hits the opponent 2-5 
times.  Even after the 5 hits, which is rare, the total base damage is only 
75.  Considering that and the bad accuracy, Body Slam is still better.

Dragon Rage - Dragon - 40 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Always deals 40 points of 
damage to the opponent.  Is this useless?  You bet it is.  I guarantee you 
any other attack you have will do more damage (unless your moveset is Pound, 
Tackle, Scratch, Double Kick and you've been Charmed 3 times, then you should 
use Dragon Rage).

Dragonbreath (TM 24) - Dragon - 60 - 99.6% - 20 PP 0 32 PP - Has a 29.7% 
chance of paralyzing the opponent.  This attack is excellent on Kingdra, who 
gets STAB for it and also gets a major boost from that paralysis chance.

Dream Eater (TM 42) - Psychic - 100 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Deals damage, 
but only when the opponent is asleep.  Returns half of the damage done to the 
opponent to the user in the form of HP.  This would be fun if Psychic just 
weren't so much better.  Actually, number-wise, Dream Eater IS better, but 
the fact that your opponent has to be asleep is a major drawback.  They can 
easily switch, and Sleep Clause is fugly.

Drill Peck - Flying - 80 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Hands down the best Flying 
attack in the game.  Anything that can get this should have it, no argument.

Dynamicpunch (TM 01) - Fighting - 100 - 49.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Confuses the 
opponent every time it hits.  That accuracy is a drawback, but you must 
consider: confusion every turn it hits, and it hits about once every other 
turn.  That really isn't so bad.  Put it on a Poliwrath for STAB, or even for 
parafusion on other Psychic Pokemon.

---------
| ~ E ~ |
---------

Earthquake (TM 26) - Ground - 100 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - The most solid 
Ground attack in the game and deadly when followed by Rhydon's 358 Attack and 
STAB.

Egg Bomb - Normal - 100 - 74.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - It's got a high base 
damage, but the low PP and low accuracy make it just useless.

Ember - Fire - 40 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of burning the 
opponent.  It's okay early on in the game, but useless compared to 
Flamethrower and Fire Blast.

Encore - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Causes the opponent to repeat 
the last attack it used for 2-6 turns.  This is great when the opponent uses 
an attack such as Thunder Wave, Recover, Attract, Substitute, Curse, etc.  If 
you are faster, unless they switch, you've got them trapped.  This also works 
well as an annoyer with Disable.

Endure (TM 20) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - If you are hit with 
an attack that would normally faint you on the turn that you use this, you 
will be ensured to be left with 1 HP.  User always goes first.  The accuracy 
of this works the same as Detect and Protect.  Each consecutive turn that it 
is used, the accuracy is reduced by half.  This attack is good when used to 
power up such attacks as Flail and Reversal which do more damage the lower 
the user's HP.

Explosion - Normal - 250/500 - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Faints the user.  I 
listed 2 values for the base damage because you'll likely hear both.  For 
hexadecimal purposes, the base damage cannot exceed 256, so it is 250.  
However, every time you use Explosion, the enemy's Defense is cut in half, so 
effectively, the base damage is doubled to 500.  This attack is extremely 
powerful and very useful when you're about to run out of health.  Even the 
low-Attack Electrode can deal a nice chuck of damage when it uses this 
attack.

Extremespeed - Normal - 80 - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - User always attacks first.  
Only Arcanine and Dragonite can get this attack.  If the base damage were a 
little higher and it had a little more PP, this would be good, but it 
doesn't, so it stinks.  A lot of people like to use Curse with this, but that 
8 PP still runs out pretty quickly.  Stick with Body Slam or Return.

---------
| ~ F ~ |
---------

Faint Attack - Dark - 60 - 100% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Never misses.  Look 
everyone, it's the Special-based Swift.  Fairly weak, fairly useless.

False Swipe - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Will never bring the 
opponent down past 1 HP.  This is good for catching Pokemon, but pretty much 
useless everywhere else.

Fire Blast (TM 38) - Fire - 120 - 84.4% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
burning the opponent.  This is a very solid, very strong attack impeded only 
slightly by its accuracy and low PP.  It's a personal preference as to this 
vs. Flamethrower.

Fire Punch (TM 48) - Fire - 75 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
burning the opponent.  It's useless when placed against the more powerful, 
same PP, same accuracy Flamethrower.

Fire Spin - Fire - 15 (initial) - 69.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Hurts and traps the 
opponent after they attack for 2-6 turns.  Your hit on Fire Spin has a 15 
base damage, each hit after the opponent's attack will reduce the opponent's 
HP by 1/16, or 6.25%.  It's useless.  The accuracy is too low.  Again, if you 
need a trapper, Baton Pass Mean Look from Umbreon or Smeargle.

Fissure - Ground - OHKO - 29.7% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Always faints the opponent 
when it hits.  Useless against Flying opponents.  This is great as a last 
effort or an attempt to take out an opponent you don't think you normally 
would be able to.  The accuracy is low, I know, but that still hits once out 
of every 3 turns, which isn't bad.

Flail - Normal - Varies - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - The lower the user's 
health, the more damage it deals.  The base damage when used at certain 
amounts of remaining health is as such:
4.2% HP or less = 200  
4.2% to 10.4% = 150  
10.4% to 20.8% = 100  
20.8% to 35.4% = 80  
35.4% to 68.8% = 40  
68.8% to 100% = 20 
Flail will never score a critical hit.
This is a very powerful attack if you can be faster than the opponent and 
pull it off.  Dodrio uses it exceptionally well since he is fast anyway, can 
get Agility to be assured to be faster than anything, and gets STAB for the 
Attack (bringing a < 4.2% HP Dodrio's Flail immediately to a 300 base 
damage).

Flame Wheel - Fire - 60 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
burning the opponent.  This attack is nothing compared to Flamethrower and 
Fire Blast.
 
Flamethrower (Move Tutor) - Fire - 95 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% 
chance of burning the opponent.  Most people will tell you that this is the 
best Fire attack.  It is indeed solid and strong with a near-perfect 
accuracy, but it's essentially a coin-flip between it and Fire Blast.

Flash (HM 05) - Normal - N/A - 69.5% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
accuracy.  These are the percentages for the rate of the opponent's ability 
to attack you after a certain amount of Flashes have been used (assuming no 
switching occurs in between):
1st Flash: 67.4%
2nd Flash: 53.3%
3rd Flash: 42.7%
4th Flash: 40.4%
5th Flash: 32.9%
6th Flash: 28.4%
This attack's accuracy is too low.  Go with Double Team if you want something 
to make the enemy hit you less.

Fly (HM 02) - Flying - 70 - 94.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - User flies up high on the 
first turn, attacks on the second turn.  The opponent cannot hit you on the 
first turn unless they use Gust, Whirlwind, Twister, or Thunder.  This attack 
is overshadowed by the much better Drill Peck and much more reliable Wing 
Attack.
 
Focus Energy - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Increases the user's 
critical hit ratio to 12.5%.  Can be used only once.  Switching gets rid of 
this effect.  This works well on the "Critical Machamp" and "Critical 
Primeape" which have Cross Chop and Focus Energy with an attached Scope Lens 
for a 50% chance of a critical hit per Cross Chop.  Other than that, there 
isn't much use for it, as one Curse will equal the damage done per critical 
hit.

Foresight - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Allows Normal and Fighting 
attacks to hit Ghosts when used.  Worthless?  You bet.  Just switch to a 
Flyer or a Ghost to hit the opponent's Ghost.

Frustration (TM 21) - Normal - 102 (max) - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Damage 
done varies with the loyalty to the trainer.  The less the user likes its 
trainer, the more damage it will do.  It can do, at most, 102 base damage.  
Frustration is a very powerful Normal attack.  After STAB, it does more 
damage than a non-STAM Hyper Beam (153 base vs. 150 base) per turn.  Very 
powerful.

Fury Attack - Normal - 15 - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Hits the opponent 2-5 
times.  This, again, can yield a maximum base damage of only 75.  Again, 
stick with Body Slam or Return.

Fury Cutter (TM 49) - Bug - 10 (first hit) - 94.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Base 
damage doubles each consecutive hit.  The first hit will have a base damage 
of 10, the next hit will be 20, the next will be 40, the next 80, then 160, 
and so on.  Is it any good?  Not really, considering that while you try to 
get that base damage up, the opponent can just switch to something the user 
is weak to and take it out.  Normal attacks are really better than Bug 
attacks anyway.

Fury Swipes - Normal - 18 - 79.7% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Hits the opponent 2-5 
times.  Hey, it's more powerful than Fury Attack, but it still can yield a 
maximum base damage of only 90, and it is inaccurate.  Stick to the tried-
and-true Normal attacks.

Future Sight - Psychic - 80 - 89.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Hits the opponent 3 
turns after it was used.  Useless for the most part unless you want it on a 
nifty annoyer team.

---------
| ~ G ~ |
---------

Giga Drain (TM 19) - Grass - 60 - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Half of the damage 
done to the opponent is returned to the user in the form of HP.  This is the 
strongest draining attack, but is still weak due to low base damage and low 
PP.  Razor Leaf is a bit better.

Glare - Normal - N/A - 74.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Paralyzes the opponent.  I can 
think of 2 Pokemon off the top of my head that can get this (Arbok and 
Dunsparce, and I believe they are the only 2), and they should have it.

Growl - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Reduces the opponent's Attack 
the same amount that Aurora Beam does.  Charm is better.

Growth - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Raises the user's Special 
Attack.  To figure out the new value, take half of the original value and add 
that number each time Growth is used.  It can be used a maximum of 6 times, 
and it works in the same manner as Curse (as far as stat growth is 
concerned).  For example, let's say my 298-Special Attack Victreebel uses 
Growth:
1st Growth: 298 + (298/2) = 298 + 149 = 447
2nd Growth: 447 + 149 = 596
3rd Growth: 596 + 149 = 745
4th Growth: 745 + 149 = 894
5th Growth: 894 + 149 = 1043
1043 falls back to 999, no more Growths may be used.
Hmm, all of these 298 examples may be confusing since I say these attacks can 
be used 6 times, but I'm only going 5 here.  Okay, I'll do another.  My 
Parasect has a 218 Special Attack:
1st Growth: 218 + (218/2) = 218 + 109 = 327
2nd Growth: 327 + 109 = 436
3rd Growth: 436 + 109 = 545
4th Growth: 545 + 109 = 654
5th Growth: 654 + 109 = 763
6th Growth: 763 + 109 = 872
Growth has been used 6 times, no more may be used.  
This is an example of a Pokemon who does not max out at 999 after maximum 
setup.  There are a few others.
Anyway, Growth is worth it if you have an extra place, but it does take a 
while to setup.  That is the only drawback.

Guillotine - Normal - OHKO - 29.7% - 5 PP - 8 PP - If it hits, it faints the 
opponent.  It cannot hit Ghosts.  This is just like Fissure except that it 
can hit Flyers but not Ghosts.  It's good to have.

Gust - Flying - 40 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Can hit a Pokemon who is up in 
the air after the first turn of Fly for double the damage.  It's still weak, 
and Drill Peck is still better (although you would get the base damage of 
Drill Peck if you hit a Fly-er, but how many Fly-ers are there?).

---------
| ~ H ~ |
---------

Harden - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Raises the user's Defense.  
This works in the same manner as Growth, just to Defense instead.  I'll 
provide another example here.  Let's say my 158-Defense Snorlax uses Harden:
1st Harden: 158 + (158/2) = 158 + 79 = 237
2nd Harden: 237 + 79 = 316
3rd Harden: 316 + 79 = 395
4th Harden: 395 + 79 = 474
5th Harden: 474 + 79 = 553
6th Harden: 553 + 79 = 632
No more than 6 Hardens may be used.  This is an example of a Pokemon whose 
stat does not max out.  Harden is nothing now that Curse is around to raise 
both Defense and Attack.  The Speed drop on Snorlax isn't a problem since 
it's so slow anyway.

Haze - Ice - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - When used, any stat changes are 
removed.  For example, if I brought my Hazing Quagsire out against that 
Snorlax which has already used Harden 6 times, and I use Haze, Snorlax's 
Defense will fall back to 158.  Haze is extremely helpful and it is 
recommended that at least one Hazer be on every team.

Headbutt (TM 02) - Normal - 70 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 29.7% chance 
of making the opponent flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  
Headbutt isn't so bad on annoyer Pokemon and annoyer teams.  Other than that, 
Body Slam and its paralysis are still better.

Heal Bell - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - All status abnormalities are 
removed from the user's team.  If I have a team that contains Snorlax and 
Miltank, and the Snorlax is asleep and the Miltank is paralyzed, and I use 
Heal Bell, both the sleep and paralysis conditions disappear.  This does not 
work with any status change that goes away with a switch (such as confusion, 
infatuation, curse, etc.).  Heal Bellers are very common and very helpful, 
but I personally think they remove some of the challenges from battling.

Hi Jump Kick - Fighting - 85 - 89.5% - 20 PP - 32 PP - If the user misses, 
1/8 of the damage that would have been done to the opponent is done to the 
user.  This is the best Fighting attack in the game, missing only about once 
every 10 uses.  It is slightly weaker than Cross Chop, but it is more 
accurate and you get many more PP.  Anything that can get Hi Jump Kick should 
indeed have it.

Hidden Power (TM 10) - Normal/Any - 31-70 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - The type 
and base damage depend on the user.  This gets a little complicated.  Hidden 
Power is listed as a Normal attack in the game, but it can really be any 
type, depending on the DVs of the user.  It can also be any base damage 
between 31 and 70, also depending on the DVs of the user. (I would really 
rather not go into a full discussion on DVs right now, maybe in a future 
update I will, but if you do now know what DVs are it is probably better that 
you skip the following.)  No matter what type the Hidden Power comes out to 
be, it will always be Counterable.  Here is how you figure out your Pokemon's 
Hidden Power type and damage based on its DVs:
~~~
This gets very confusing very quickly. 

This attack does damage based on your Pokemon's DVs. The POWER of the attack 
is determined by this formula.  
(X * 5 + Y / 2) + 31  
Where X = AEIM and Y = MNOP (max 3). 

These letters refer to the binary placement of the DVs. DVs of 4/12/15/3 
would be:  
0100 - 1100 - 1111 - 0011  
ABCD - EFGH - IJKL - MNOP  

So AEIM would equal 0110, or 6. MNOP would equal 3. Plug these into the 
formula and you get 47.5. 

The TYPE of attack chosen is CDGH. In this case, 0000. This Pokemon would 
have a 47.5 power Fighting attack. See the following list for the type: 
1111 = Dark 
1110 = Dragon 
1101 = Ice 
1100 = Psychic 
1011 = Electric 
1010 = Grass 
1001 = Water 
1000 = Fire 
0111 = Steel 
0110 = Ghost 
0101 = Bug 
0100 = Rock 
0011 = Ground 
0010 = Poison 
0001 = Flying 
0000 = Fighting

Hidden Power Pokemon are popular to counter weaknesses, but you are usually 
just better off switching considering you usually need a 2HKO or 3HKO, and 
they can hit you with the attack you're weak to before you KO them.

Horn Attack - Normal - 65 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - This attack is very good 
for raising that Nidoran Male early on in the game, but it is nothing 
compared to its stronger counterparts.

Horn Drill - Normal - OHKO - 29.7% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Faints the opponent if it 
hits.  This attack is identical to Guillotine.  Use it if you have an open 
space on something that can get it.

Hydro Pump - Water - 120 - 79.7% - 5 PP - 8 PP - This attack is not that bad.  
It has the same accuracy and PP as Cross Chop, but it is stronger than Cross 
Chop and is Special Attack based instead.  On Water types with low Special 
Attack or with very high Special Attack, this is a great attack to have with 
Rain Dance to help back it up. (Examples: Qwilfish, Maintine, Gyarados, 
Omastar, Starmie [if you have an extra slot for Rain Dance])

Hyper Beam (TM 15) - Normal - 150 - 89.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - User fires the 
attack the first turn, recharges the second turn.  When you figure in that 
each usage of this attack is 2-turn, you can split that 150 into 75 base 
damage per turn (150/2).  Keeping that in mind, plus Hyper Beam's low PP and 
lower accuracy, Return and Frustration are better, both having a 102 base 
damage per turn, 204 per 2-turns, higher accuracy, and much more PP.

Hyper Fang - Normal - 80 - 89.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - If the user is faster than 
the opponent, there is a 9.8% chance of causing the opponent to flinch.  
There are better attacks to put on Raticate.

Hypnosis - Psychic - N/A - 59.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Puts the opponent to sleep 
if it connects.  I don't like it because of its low accuracy, but whatever 
floats your boat.

Ice Beam (Move Tutor) - Ice - 95 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 9.8% chance 
of freezing the opponent.  This is the ultimate Ice attack in the game.  Use 
it on any Ice Pokemon (Sneasel aside).

Ice Punch (TM 33) - Ice - 75 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
freezing the opponent.  This has no use, Ice Beam is superior.

Icy Wind (TM 16) - Ice - 55 - 94.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
Speed.  This base damage is not that bad when STAB is factored in, and even 
better with type effectiveness.  It's good on Piloswine and Blissey since 
they have low Speeds.

Iron Tail (TM 23) - Steel - 100 - 74.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 29.7% chance 
of lowering the opponent's Defense.  This attack might actually be useful if 
it weren't the fact that a Ground and a Rock can take care of everything much 
more easily than Steel can, and if Iron Tail were a little more accurate.  
Steels are only strong against Ice and Rock, and Earthquake and Rock Slide 
can take care of that (considering that Steelix is the only major user of 
Iron Tail).  Steer clear of this attack.

Jump Kick - Fighting - 70 - 94.5% - 25 PP - 40 PP - If this attack misses, 
1/8 of the damage that would normally be done to the opponent is done to the 
user.  Hi Jump Kick is better.

---------
| ~ K ~ |
---------

Karate Chop - Fighting - 50 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 25% chance of a 
critical hit.  Cross Chop is better.

Kinesis - Psychic - N/A - 79.7% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
accuracy in the same manner as Flash and Smokescreen.  There are much better 
attacks that you can put on Alakazam.

---------
| ~ L ~ |
---------

Leech Life - Bug - 20 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Half of the damage done to 
the opponent is returned to the user in the form of HP.  Leech Life is a very 
weak attack, and again, a Normal attack would be better.

Leech Seed - Grass - N/A - 89.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Saps HP from the opponent 
and returns it to the user.  This drains 1/8, or 12.5%, of the opponent's 
health after every turn.  It does not work against Grass type Pokemon.  It is 
very helpful and I recommend that anything that can get it have it.

Leer - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Lowers the opponent's Defense 
in the same manner that Aurora Beam lowers Attack.  Screech and Curse are 
better.
 
Lick - Ghost - 20 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of paralyzing 
the opponent.  If you have an extra slot on your Gengar (but I can't really 
imagine why you would...) and you also have Confuse Ray, you could put Lick 
or Zap Cannon there for parafusion.  Other than that, this attack doesn't 
serve much purpose.  If you want a Ghost attack, Shadow Ball is better.

Light Screen - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - All Special-based 
attacks which hit the user when this is up only do half the damage they 
normally would.  This lasts for 5 turns and it can be pseudo-passed, which 
means that if you switch before the 5 turns are up, it stays up for the 
incoming Pokemon to make use of.  Reflect and Safeguard work in the same 
manner.

Lock On - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Ensures that the user's next 
attack will not miss.  This is no good without a trapper move first.  If you 
use Lock On, your opponent will know that something is coming, and they will 
switch, thus screwing everything up.

Lovely Kiss - Normal - N/A - 74.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Opponent goes to sleep 
if it connects.  Only Jynx can it this.  It is useful.

Low Kick - Fighting - 50 - 89.5% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
causing the opponent to flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  Good 
early on in the game, but overshadowed by Cross Chop and Hi Jump Kick.

---------
| ~ M ~ |
---------

Mach Punch - Fighting - 40 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - User always attacks 
first.  Because of this neat little fact and Curse, Mach Punch is somewhat 
popular.  If you can pull off 3 or 4 Curses, Mach Punch can be quite 
powerful. (3 or 4 Curses on a Fighter is a stretch, though.)

Magnitude - Ground - Varies - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Attacks the opponent at 
different strengths depending on the magnitude of the attack when it is used.  
This is the chart for the base damage breakdown.  The percentage afterwards 
is the chance of getting that particular magnitude:
Magnitude 4: 10 (5.5%)
Magnitude 5: 30 (9.8%)
Magnitude 6: 50 (19.9%)
Magnitude 7: 70 (29.7%)
Magnitude 8: 90 (19.9%)
Magnitude 9: 110 (9.8%)
Magnitude 10: 150 (5.1%)
Does double the damage to a Pokemon who is underground during Dig.
As you can see, it's a wide range.  Because of this randomness, Earthquake is 
better.

Mean Look - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Opponent becomes trapped and 
cannot escape.  When this is used, the opponent cannot switch.  The effects 
wear off if the user switches.

Meditate - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Increases the user's 
Attack.  It can be used a maximum of 6 times.  To figure out the user's new 
Attack stat, take half of the original Attack and add that value to the 
current Attack every time Meditate is used.  For example, if I had a Hypno 
with Meditate who had an Attack of 244, it would look like this:
1st Meditate: 244 + (244/2) = 244 + 122 = 366
2nd Meditate: 366 + 122 = 488
3rd Meditate: 488 + 122 = 610
4th Meditate: 610 + 122 = 732
5th Meditate: 732 + 122 = 854
6th Meditate: 854 + 122 = 976
So close to 999, poor Hypno.  Anyway, Meditate is rarely seen now since Curse 
is around.  Curse provides padding with the Defense-up as well.

Mega Drain - Grass - 40 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Half of the damage done to 
the opponent is returned to the user in the form of health.  If you must have 
a draining attack, go with Giga Drain.

Mega Kick - Normal - 120 - 74.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - It's a strong attack, but 
that accuracy and that low PP is just not worth it.  Double-Edge has the same 
base damage with a higher accuracy and more PP, just with a little kickback.

Mega Punch - Normal - 80 - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Another disappointment.

Megahorn - Bug - 120 - 84.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a % chance of a critical 
hit.  This is the ultimate Bug attack.  Every Heracross should have it.  If 
only Scizor could get it too...

Metal Claw - Steel - 50 - 94.5% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
raising the user's Attack (the same amount as Curse does).  Again, Steel 
attacks are pointless because they do not cover an adequate range.  Scizor is 
the only Steel-type that can learn this, but Return is just better.

Metronome - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Uses one attack at random.  
Any attack at all.  Except Metronome.  And maybe Struggle too, I'm not sure.  
This attack should be reserved for fun teams only as it is very 
unpredictable.

Milk Drink - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Recovers half of 
Miltank's total HP.  Every Miltank should have it.

Mimic - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Copies the last attack used by 
the opponent and adds it to your list of attacks in place of Mimic.  The 
attack goes away and Mimic comes back if you switch.  This is another fun 
attack, and also works excellent on a fast Pokemon with Substitute, like 
Dugtrio or Dodrio.

Mind Reader - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Ensures that your next 
attack will not miss.  It is exactly the same as Lock On.  If your opponent 
switches (which they usually will when you use this), you lose that 
insurance.

Minimize - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Raises the user's 
evasiveness.  This follows exactly the same pattern as Double Team:
1st Minimize: 34.1%
2nd Minimize: 50.0%
3rd Minimize: 55.8%
4th Minimize: 59.6%
5th Minimize: 67.1%
6th Minimize: 71.6%
It is better than Double Team as you get more PP with Minimize.  Remember 
that if you switch you lose the raised evasiveness.

Mirror Coat - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Special-based attacks 
that are done to the user on the turn that this is used are returned to the 
opponent double-damage.  The user always attacks last with this.  This is the 
Special version of Counter.  It is quite useful, although it has become 
rather predictable on Wobbuffet (well, obviously) and Suicune.  Electrode 
uses it well, though, if the opponent has a special attacker out.  It's 
usually unexpected on Electrode.

Mirror Move - Flying - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - The user uses the last 
attack that the opponent used on this turn.  For example, if I send my Fearow 
out against a Rhydon that had tried to Earthquake my Ampharos that was out, 
my Fearow can use Mirror Move, and it will use Earthquake on the Rhydon.  
It's a fun attack, but most Flyers can get something better instead.

Mist - Ice - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Prevents any stat changes from 
happening to the user.  Goes away when the user switches out.  Basically, 
Mist prevents to the user what Haze gets rid of.  So is there any practical 
use?  Not really, considering that you can get rid of the same things that 
Mist gets rid of by just switching.  For another comparison, Mist is to Haze 
what Safeguard is to Heal Bell.

Moonlight - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Recovers half of the user's 
total HP.  It's a shame that this attack has so little PP, because it looks 
damn cool on Stadium 2, and it really helps out the few Pokemon (Umbreon, 
Clefable, Exeggutor, Vileplume, Bellossom) that can get it.  If Sunny Day is 
in effect, each Moonlight will recover all of the user's HP.

Morning Sun - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Recovers half of the 
user's total HP.  Again, it's a shame that it has so little PP, but it really 
helps out Espeon. If Sunny Day is in effect, each Moonlight will recover all 
of the user's HP.

Mud-Slap (TM 31) - Ground - 20 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Deals damage and 
lowers the opponent's accuracy.  This attack is evil.  I once battled a 
Miltank with Body Slam and Mud-Slap.  My opponent's Cloyster had lain down 
Spikes against me earlier in the match.  I got damage from Spikes if I 
switched to avoid the lowered accuracy, and I hit nothing if I stayed out.  
Evil.  The values for accuracy-downs are the same as with Flash and Sand-
Attack:
1st Mud-Slap: 67.4%
2nd Mud-Slap: 53.3%
3rd Mud-Slap: 42.7%
4th Mud-Slap: 40.4%
5th Mud-Slap: 32.9%
6th Mud-Slap: 28.4%
This is great for annoyer teams with Spikes down.  Skarmory uses this 
especially well when it is used in coordination with Agility and Swagger.

---------
| ~ N ~ |
---------

Night Shade - Ghost - Varies by Level - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Deals damage 
equivalent to the user's experience level.  For example, if a level 10 Gengar 
uses this attack, it will deal 10 points of damage.  If a level 100 Gengar 
uses this attack, it will deal 100 points of damage.  Seismic Toss is better 
as Seismic Toss is exactly the same, only it has more PP.  If you feel your 
Gengar absolutely must have Night Shade, at least trade back to RBY and teach 
it Seismic Toss over Night Shade

Nightmare (TM 50) - Ghost - N/A - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Removes 1/4 of a 
sleeper's HP.  This attack only works if the opponent is asleep.  It will 
remove 1/4 of the sleeper's HP after every turn.  If the opponent switches, 
it no longer works.

---------
| ~ O ~ |
---------

Octazooka - Water - 65 - 84.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 49.6% chance of 
lowering the opponent's accuracy.  If the accuracy were a little higher, this 
would be a great attack.  Since it's not, it's only good for annoyer-Spikes 
teams.  Accuracy is lowered in the same manner as Smokescreen and Flash.

Outrage - Dragon - 90 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - User attacks 1-3 turns in a 
row, then is confused.  This is a very powerful attack that deals a very good 
amount of damage off of Dragonite's 298 Special Attack and STAB.  The only 
problem is the confusion.  This can be countered by using Safeguard 
beforehand to prevent the confusion.

---------
| ~ P ~ |
---------

Pain Split - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Averages the HP of the 
user and the opponent.  This attack is so much fun.  I had my 1-HP-remaining 
Misdreavus up against a full health Blissey.  I had some fun. :) 

Pay Day - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - (In-game only) A number of 
coins equal to double the user's experience level is collected after the 
battle.  This is good to get some money, but other than that, no use.

Peck - Flying - 35 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Two words: Drill Peck.

Perish Song - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - After 3 turns, both the 
user and the opponent faint.  The effect wears off for one of the Pokemon if 
it switches.  This move is very, very cheap if used in coordination with a 
trapper move such as Mean Look.  I like to use it to pseudo-Haze with Spikes 
down. 

Petal Dance - Grass - 70 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - User attacks 2-3 turns in 
a row, then becomes confused.  Very similar to Outrage and Thrash.  There are 
better Grass attacks to use.

Pin Missile - Bug - 14 - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - User attacks 2-5 times in a 
row.  This attack does less damage than Struggle per turn.  Run away.  Run 
away fast.

Poison Gas - Poison - N/A - 54.7% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Poisons the opponent.  If 
you want an attack that will poison the opponent, go with Toxic.

Poison Sting - Poison - 15 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
poisoning the opponent.  Go with Sludge Bomb.

Poisonpowder - Poison - N/A - 74.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Poisons the opponent.  
Again, if you want an attack that causes poison, go with Toxic.

Pound - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Well... it's better than Tackle 
and Scratch...

Powder Snow - Ice - 40 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
freezing the opponent.  Ice Beam is much better.

Present - Normal - Varies - 89.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - The attack randomly hits 
with a base damage of 40 (40%), 80 (30%), 120 (10%), or heals 1/4 of the 
opponent's total HP (20%).  There was a major glitch with Present in GS that 
did major damage to special attackers when it was used by a Normal Pokemon, 
but that was fixed in Crystal.

Protect (TM 17) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - An opponent's attack 
does nothing on the turn this is used.  The user always goes first.  Just 
like with Detect and Endure, this attack's accuracy is halved each 
consecutive turn it is used.  This is one of the most fun attacks in the 
game.  It's good for foiling Explosions, working with Perish Trapping, and 
giving the user a free turn of Leftovers-recovery if needed.

Psybeam - Psychic - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
confusing the opponent.  Psychic is better.

Psywave - Psychic - Varies - 79.7% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Randomly does damage 
equal to 1 HP-1.5x the user's experience level.  For example, if my level 100 
Alakazam uses this attack, it can do anywhere from 1 to 150 (100 * 1.5) 
points of damage.  This attack is unreliable and inaccurate.  Stick with 
Psychic.

Psych Up (TM 09) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Copies any status 
changes of the opponent, both positive and negative.  For example, if my 
Espeon uses Psych Up against a Scizor who has used Agility and Double Team, 
my Espeon will get that Agility and Double Team.  However, if my Espeon uses 
Psych Up against a Rhydon that has been Charmed, Espeon will get the Attack 
drop.  Psych Up does NOT steal.  It only copies.  The opponent still has the 
status changes after Psych Up has been used.

Psychic (TM 29) - Psychic - 90 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
lowering the target's Special Defense.  This is the best Psychic attack in 
the game and deadly with STAB.

Pursuit - Dark - 40 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Does double the damage to a 
Pokemon which is trying to switch out.  For example, if my Houndoom uses 
Pursuit on the turn that a Hypno has switched out, Hypno takes double the 
damage it normally would before it is switched.  After STAB and double damage 
on a switch, this attack has a base damage of 120, which isn't bad at all.  
Type-effectiveness against a Psychic bumps this up to 240.  Pretty good.

---------
| ~ Q ~ |
---------

Quick Attack - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - User always hits first.  
There were a few Raikou movesets developed with Psych Up, Quick Attack, Roar, 
and Thunderbolt.  The idea was to use Psych Up on an opponent that had used 
Curse 5 or 6 times, then Roar it away.  You could use Quick Attack with those 
Curses, always striking first with an improved attack.  It works okay.

---------
| ~ R ~ |
---------

Rain Dance (TM 18) - Water - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Rain Dance lasts for 
5 turns, cancels out Sunny Day and Sandstorm, and has these 6 effects:
1.) Powers up Water attacks by 50%
2.) Powers down Fire attacks by 50%
3.) Gives Thunder a 99.6% accuracy (ignores evade boosters like Double Team)
4.) Morning Sun, Moonlight, and Synthesis recover 1/4 of the user's health
5.) Weakens Solarbeam
6.) Prevents frozen Pokemon from thawing naturally

Rage - Normal - 20 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Gets stronger if the opponent 
hits you on the turn you use this attack.  It's still very weak and outlasted 
by the more powerful Normal attacks.

Rapid Spin - Normal - 20 - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Deals damage and gets rid 
of Spikes, Leech Seed, or Spider Web if they are on the user's team.  I like 
this.  I keep it on my Forretress to get rid of Spikes once they opponent's 
Spike-user is gone.

Razor Leaf - Grass - 55 - 94.5% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 25% chance of a 
critical hit.  This is probably the best Grass attack because it has so much 
PP and the fairly high critical hit rate... but we still don't have a decent, 
rounded Grass attack.

Razor Wind - Normal - 80 - 74.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Charges on the first turn, 
attacks on the second.  Low base damage, low accuracy, low PP, and the need 
to charge first turn make this arguably the worst attack in the game.

Recover - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Recovers half of the user's 
total HP.  I hope you're intelligent enough to keep this move if your Pokemon 
tries to learn it.

Reflect - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Lasts for 5 turns and 
reduces the damage done by a physical attack by half.  Like Light Screen and 
Safeguard, Reflect can be pseudo-passed, which means that if your Pokemon 
currently out uses Reflect, and you switch before the 5 turns are up, 
whatever comes out will have Reflect up for it.  Very convenient.

Return (TM 27) - Normal - 102 (max) - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Does damage 
based on the Pokemon's loyalty to its trainer.  The more it likes its 
trainer, the more damage Return will do.  Return has a maximum base damage of 
102, which is very good.  It is one of the best Normal attacks in the game.

Rest (TM 44) - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - User recovers all 
health and status, then goes to sleep for 2 turns.  This move is very useful 
when combined with a Mint Berry or Leftovers.

Reversal - Fighting - Varies - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Does more damage the 
less health the user has remaining.  The base damage-health values are the 
same as for Flail, but I will list them again:
4.2% HP or less = 200  
4.2% to 10.4% = 150  
10.4% to 20.8% = 100  
20.8% to 35.4% = 80  
35.4% to 68.8% = 40   
68.8% to 100% = 20 
Reversal will never score a critical hit.
This attack is great on Heracross if you can get some paralysis support for 
it or get an Agility Baton Passed to it.

Roar (TM 05) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Forces the opponent to 
switch.  This is good to use if you notice that the opponent is starting to 
Curse, or get setup in another manner, or if you have placed Spikes down.  
You can force a switch and get damage for Spikes.

Rock Slide - Rock - 75 - 89.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of making 
the opponent flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  It would be 
nice to get a halfway decent Rock attack at some point.  Rock Slide has only 
moderate base damage and a lowered accuracy.  And how many Rock/Ground types 
are fast?  Stick with Ancientpower, if you can.

Rock Smash (TM 08) - Fighting - 20 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 49.6% 
chance of lowering the opponent's Defense.  In the game, it breaks cracked 
rocks.  In battle, it's useless.  The values for the opponent's Defense are 
the same as those for Acid.

Rock Throw - Rock - 50 - 89.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - It's worse than Rock Slide. 
(Hey!  So Rock Throw IS more accurate than Rock Slide!)

Rolling Kick - Fighting - 60 - 84.4% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
causing the opponent to flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  The 
greater Hi Jump Kick shadows it.

Rollout (TM 04) - Rock - 30 (initial) - 89.5% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Lasts for 5 
turns, during which you cannot switch or choose another attack.  For every 
turn that it hits, the base damage doubles.  So the breakdown for bases 
damage is as such:
1st hit: 30 
2nd hit: 60
3rd hit: 120
4th hit: 240
5th hit: 480
The base damage resets to 30 after 5 turns or if the attack misses.  If you 
use Defense Curl before you use Rollout, the potential power is doubled:
1st hit: 60
2nd hit: 120
3rd hit: 240
4th hit: 480
5th hit: 960
Rollout is not so great due to low accuracy and the fact that you can't do 
anything else for 5 turns.  Rock Slide and Ancientpower are better.
(For reference, a Rhydon's 6x Cursed final hit Rollout attached Hard Rock used 
against a Butterfree who has been Screeched 3 times is the most powerful 
attack in the game with the total damage done somewhere around 10,000,000 hit 
points.  It's fun to think about, but unfortunately, this scenario is 
impossible in a real battle.)

---------
| ~ S ~ |
---------

Sacred Fire - Fire - 100 - 94.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Has a 49.6% chance of 
burning the opponent.  If your Ho-oh knows Sunny Day, go with Fire Blast for 
sheer power.  If no Sunny Day, go with Sacred Fire.

Safeguard - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Prevents status changes 
(Poison, Sleep, Burn, Freeze, Paralyze) from working while it is up.  It 
lasts for 5 turns, and like Reflect and Light Screen, it can be pseudo-
passed, which means if a Pokemon uses it and switches out before the 5 turns 
are up, the incoming Pokemon will have it up to use.  Safeguard is helpful 
with the aid of a Miracle Berry to foil status changes, but it is difficult 
to predict.

Sand-Attack - Ground - N/A - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
accuracy.  Can be used a maximum of 6 times.  The values for the opponent's 
accuracy are the same as Flash and Mud-Slap: 
1st Sand-Attack: 67.4%
2nd Sand-Attack: 53.3%
3rd Sand-Attack: 42.7%
4th Sand-Attack: 40.4%
5th Sand-Attack: 32.9%
6th Sand-Attack: 28.4%
Remember that these values reset if the opponent switches.
This is another one of those fun, evil attacks that go well with Spikes, but 
Mud-Slap is a bit better.

Sandstorm (TM 37) - Rock - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Any Pokemon that is 
not part Rock, Ground, or Steel is hurt by Sandstorm after each turn.  
Sandstorm lasts for 5 turns and takes away 1/8, or 12.5%, of the HP of the 
Pokemon affected by it.  Sandstorm also cancels out Sunny Day and Rain Dance.

Scary Face - Normal - N/A - 89.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Greatly reduces the 
opponent's Speed.  Scary Face reduces the opponent's Speed in the same manner 
as Charm reduces the opponent's Attack, so refer to those values.  If you want 
a Speed advantage, paralysis is better.

Scratch - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Weak attack.  

Screech - Normal - N/A - 84.4% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Greatly reduces the 
opponent's Defense.  Screech reduces the opponent's Defense in the same manner 
that Charm reduces the opponent's Attack, so refer to those values.  It is 
very helpful.

Seismic Toss - Fighting - Varies by Level - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Does 
damage equivalent to the user's experience level.  For example, if my level 
57 Mr. Mime uses Seismic Toss, it will do 57 points of damage.  Seismic Toss 
is good to use for Pokemon with low Attack stats as a move to damage Pokemon 
of their same type, such as Alakazam and Hypno.

Selfdestruct - Normal - 200/400 - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Deals damage, then 
faints the user.  Self-destruct's normal base damage is 200, but it halves 
the opponent's Defense when it is used, so for all practical purposes the 
base damage is 400.  Self-destruct should only be used when a Pokemon cannot 
normally get Explosion, such as Snorlax (who gets STAB for the attack... 600 
base damage... *drool*).

Shadow Ball (TM 30) - Ghost - 80 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 19.9% chance 
of lowering the target's Special Defense.  Many people used Shadow Ball on 
Normal types to take out other Ghosts, but Ground attacks can cover that and 
more.  If your Normal can't get Earthquake, however, Shadow Ball is the way 
to go.  Shadow Ball also works well on Gengar to take out the low-Defense, 
Alakazam, Gengar, and Mr. Mime.  The values for the opponent's Special Defense 
will be the same as those for the opponent's Attack after a drop from Aurora 
Beam, so refer to those values.

Sharpen - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Raises the user's Defense.  
The attack-rises are figured the same way as with Curse.  Take half of the 
original Attack value and add that to the current Attack value for each 
Sharpen used.  No more than 6 may be used.  For example, if my 288 Attack 
Porygon2 uses Sharpen, its new Attack will look something like this:
1st Sharpen: 288 + (288/2) = 288 + 144 = 432
2nd Sharpen: 432 + 144 = 576
3rd Sharpen: 576 + 144 = 720
4th Sharpen: 720 + 144 = 864
5th Sharpen: 864 + 144 = 1008
1008 falls back to 999, no more Sharpens may be used.
Sharpen doesn't have much use nowadays now that Curse is around.

Sing - Normal - N/A - 54.7% - 15 PP - 24 PP - If it connects, the opponent 
falls asleep.  It has bad accuracy, but if you're in a desperate situation, 
it could come in handy.

Sketch - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 1 PP - N/A - Copies the last attack used by 
the opponent and makes it a permanent attack.  For example, if I have my 
Smeargle against a Miltank, and the Miltank uses Heal Bell, and my Smeargle 
uses Sketch, Smeargle will now know Heal Bell and will continue to know Heal 
Bell unless I erase it for a new attack Smeargle learns.  In this manner, 
Smeargle can get any attack in its arsenal.

Skull Bash - Normal - 100 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - User charges up first 
turn, attacks the second turn.  User's Defense goes up on the charging turn.  
Because this is a 2-turn attack, it is inferior to other Normal attacks.

Sky Attack - Flying - 140 - 89.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - User charges up first turn, 
attacks the second turn.  This attack is powerful, but it is predictable 
since you have to charge up, giving the opponent time to switch to something 
that will resist the attack.  Drill Peck is still better, and if the bird 
can't get Drill Peck, go with Wing Attack.

Slam - Normal - 80 - 74.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of making the 
opponent flinch if the user is faster than the opponent.  It's inaccurate, 
it's somewhat weak in comparison to other Normal attacks, and it should not 
be used.

Slash - Normal - 70 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 25% chance of a critical 
hit.  Poor Slash, it was so awesome back in RBY days when it scored a 
critical hit almost every turn.  Now that's different, and Slash is no good.

Sleep Powder - Grass - N/A - 74.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - If it connects, the 
opponent falls asleep.  This is very common on Grass Pokemon since the 
accuracy is fairly good compared to other sleep-inducing attacks (Sing, 
Hypnosis).

Sleep Talk (TM 35) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Can only be used 
while the user is asleep.  The user randomly uses one of its other 3 attacks.  
This attack is very useful if you have an open slot on a Rester.

Sludge - Poison - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
poisoning the opponent.  Sludge -used- to be the best Poison attack, but it 
has fallen to Sludge Bomb.

Sludge Bomb (TM 36) - Poison - 90 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% 
chance of poisoning the opponent.  It is the ultimate Poison attack and 
dangerous running off of the STAB-ed high Attacks of Muk, Weezing, and 
Qwilfish.

Smog - Poison - 20 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 39.8% chance of poisoning 
the opponent.  It sucked in RBY, it still sucks now.

Smokescreen - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
accuracy.  Can be used a maximum of 6 times.  The values for the opponent's 
accuracy after a certain amount of uses are the same as with Flash, Sand-
Attack, and Mud-Slap:
1st Smokescreen: 67.4%
2nd Smokescreen: 53.3%
3rd Smokescreen: 42.7%
4th Smokescreen: 40.4%
5th Smokescreen: 32.9%
6th Smokescreen: 28.4%
It's fun to use, but not very many Pokemon learn it.

Snore (TM 13) - Normal - 40 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - This attack can only be 
used while the user is asleep.  It has a 29.7% chance of causing the opponent 
to flinch if the opponent is faster than the user.  It's not worth it because 
the base damage is just too low.

Softboiled - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Recovers half of the 
user's total HP.  Every Blissey should have it.

Solarbeam (TM 22) - Grass - 120 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - User charges on the 
first turn, attacks on the second turn.  When you break it down, it's really 
only 60 base damage per turn, which is the same as Giga Drain.  Solarbeam 
does have more PP though.  Don't use it without Sunny Day, which allows it to 
fire with no charging needed.

Sonic Boom - Normal - 20 - 89.5% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Always does 20 points of 
damage to the opponent.  You should know that this stinks...

Spark - Electric - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of 
paralyzing the opponent.  I've used this before because of the high paralysis 
rate, but Thunderbolt is just plain better.

Spike Cannon - Normal - 20 (per hit) - 99.6% - 15 PP - 32 PP - User attacks 
2-5 times in a row.  It's too unpredictable, but it's also the only near-
perfect accuracy multi-hit attack (in one turn).

Spikes - Ground - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Causes damage every time the 
opponent switches.  These are great.  The damage is 1/8 of the opponent's 
total HP, or 12.5%.  It does not affect Flying Pokemon.  If you can, get a 
Spiker on your team.  You will be happy.

Spider Web - Bug - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Opponent cannot switch.  
This effect goes away if the user switches.  Ariados's version of Mean Look 
right here.  I with Ariados were a bit better.

Spite - Ghost - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Reduces the PP of the 
opponent's last move done by 2-5 points.  This move is fun to use, especially 
with Protect.  Good for draining Cross Chop and other low-PP stuff if you can 
catch it on the switch-in.

Splash - Normal - None - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Has no affect on any 
Pokemon.  The most useless attack in the game.

Spore - Grass - N/A - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Opponent goes to sleep.  This 
is Parasect's only saving grace: a near-perfect sleep-inducing attack.

Steel Wing (TM 47) - Steel - 70 - 89.5% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Has a 9.8% chance 
of increasing the user's Defense (by the same amount Defense Curl does).  
This is good if you're using an attacking Scizor for taking out Golem and 
Rhydon.

Stomp - Normal - 65 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 29.7% chance of causing 
the opponent to switch if the user is faster than the opponent.  It's still 
not as good as Return/Frustration/Body Slam/Double-Edge.

Strength (HM 04) - Normal - 80 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - A strong Normal type 
attack, but dominated now that Double-Edge's base damage went up to 120.

String Shot - Bug - N/A - 94.5% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Lowers the opponent's 
Speed.  Not much use.

Struggle - Normal - 50 - 99.6% - Unlimited - When you run out of other 
attacks, this is what your Pokemon will use.  The user takes 1/4 the damage 
that the opponent receives.

Stun Spore - Grass - N/A - 74.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - A good paralysis-inducing 
attack very common on Grass Pokemon.

Submission - Fighting - 80 - 79.7% - 25 PP - 40 PP - The user takes 1/4 of 
the damage that the opponent receives.  If this were more accurate, it would 
be more widespread instead of Dynamicpunch, most likely.

Substitute - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - User loses 1/4 of its 
health, and a Substitute goes out in its place.  The Substitute absorbs all 
damage and protects from all status ailments.  When the Substitute absorbs 
damage equivalent to the amount used to create it, it breaks.  This is great 
when you know your opponent will switch to something your Pokemon is weak to.  
Send a Ground out to absorb an Electric's Thunderbolt.  They will switch to a 
Water/Grass type, and you can Sub out and get a free hit on it.

Sunny Day (TM 11)  - Fire - N/A - 89.5% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Sunny Day lasts for 5 
turns and cancels out Rain Dance and Sandstorm.  It causes these 6 effects:
1.) Powers up Fire attacks (damage increases by 50%)
2.) Powers down Water attacks (damage decreases by 50%)
3.) Causes Thunder to be 49.6% accurate
4.) Causes Solarbeam to fire with no charge needed
5.) Gives frozen Pokemon a 9.8% chance of thawing
6.) Causes Morning Sun, Moonlight, and Synthesis to recover all health

Super Fang - Normal - Halves HP - 89.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Cuts the user's 
remaining HP in half.  Every Raticate should have it.

Supersonic - Normal - N/A - 54.7% - 20 PP - 32 PP - If it connects, it 
confuses the opponent.  It's too inaccurate.  If you want a confusion-
inducing move, go with Swagger (but be careful).

Surf (HM 03) - Water - 95 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - It's strong, accurate, 
and reliable.  You should probably stick with this over other Water attacks.
 
Swagger (TM 34) - Normal - N/A - 89.5% - 15 PP 24 PP - Opponent's Attack goes 
way up, then becomes confused.  The Attack-boost is equivalent to 1 Swords 
Dance.  Be careful when using this.  Make sure the Pokemon you use it against 
has no physical attacks, because that confusion won't last forever.

Sweet Kiss (TM 12) - Normal - N/A - 74.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - If it connects, 
the opponent becomes confused.  It works.

Sweet Scent (TM 39) - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Causes the 
opponent's evasiveness to fall.  The values for the opponent's evasiveness 
drop are the same as the values for an opponent's Defense drop from an Acid, 
so refer to those values. It's not much worth it because the opponent will 
switch anyway.  Just hit them.

Swift - Normal - 60 - 100% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Never misses, regardless of 
evade-boosters.  An old strategy to counter Double Resting (using Double Team 
and Rest combinations) was to have a Swift Dancer, which was a Pokemon with 
Swift and Swords Dance.  Now, with many more Hazers, this really isn't 
necessary, but a few do still use it.

Swords Dance - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Greatly increases the 
user's Attack.  To figure out what the user's Attack is after using this, 
take the user's original Attack value and add that to the current Attack 
value for every Swords Dance used.  No more than 3 may be used.  For example, 
if my 358-Attack Scizor uses Swords Dance: 
1st Swords Dance: 358 + 358 = 716
2nd Swords Dance: 716 + 358 = 1074
1074 falls back to 999, no more Swords Dances may be used.
This attack is extremely useful.  Use it, like it.

Synthesis - Grass - N/A - 99.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Recovers half of the user's 
total HP.  If you have an extra slot on your Grass Pokemon, go for it.  It 
helps.

Tackle - Normal - 35 - 94.5% - 35 PP - 56 PP - Useless.

Tail Whip - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Lowers the targets 
Defense in the same manner as Acid.  Screech is better.

Take Down - Normal - 90 - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - 1/4 of the damage done to 
the opponent is returned to the user.  Double-Edge is better.

Teleport - Psychic - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Exits a battle with a wild 
Pokemon.  In other battles, it's worthless.

Thief (TM 46) - Dark - 40 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Deals damage and has a 
good chance of stealing the opponent's attached item if the user has no item 
attached.  I used to use this a lot to disable Marowak and take their Cheese 
Sticks. >=) It's evil.  It's fun to use and can really help if you get 
Leftovers and stuff.

Thrash - Normal - 90 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - The user attacks 2-3 turns, 
then becomes confused.  It would be decent if you didn't become confused, 
because the base damage is fairly good, but Return is still better anyway.

Thunder (TM 25) - Electric - 120 - 69.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 29.7% chance 
of paralyzing the opponent.  It's inaccurate, but there's a good amount of 
PP, and a paralysis rate of about 1 in 3 turns.  I like it.  You should 
probably stick with Thunderbolt, though.

Thunderbolt (Move Tutor) - Electric - 95 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% 
chance of paralyzing the opponent.  Strong, near perfect accuracy, good PP, 
and a paralysis chance make this arguably the ultimate Electric attack.

Thunderpunch (TM 41) - Electric - 75 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Has a 9.8% 
chance of paralyzing the opponent.  This is Thunderbolt with lower base 
damage.  Stick with Thunderbolt.

Thundershock - Electric - 40 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - Has a 9.8% chance of 
paralyzing the opponent.  Lots of PP, but it's weak. 

Thunder Wave - Electric - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Paralyzes the 
opponent.  Paralysis is the most useful status change you can put on the 
opponent.  Go for it whenever possible.

Toxic (TM 06) - Poison - N/A - 84.4% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Badly poisons the 
opponent.  The first turn takes away 1/16 of the opponent's total health, 
next turn is 1/8, then 1/4, and so on.  Switching turns this into normal 
poison.  I don't like it because it interferes with paralysis. :)

Transform - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Transforms the user into 
the opposing Pokemon.  User has 5 PP for all attacks the opponent has.  Ditto 
is stinky.  Don't use it.

Tri-Attack - Normal - 80 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Has a 19.9% chance of 
freezing, burning, or paralyzing the opponent.  In comparison to other Normal 
attacks (especially with STAB factored in), Tri-Attack is somewhat weak.  
However, it has good effects.  Tri-Attack is best used on something that has 
Curse, or even a Blissey, since she can get in many hits and many chances for 
a status change.

Triple Kick - Fighting - 10,20,30 - 89.5% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Attacks with 1-3 
hits.  Each hit is more powerful than the last one.  This attack is 
Hitmontop's specialty, but when you figure that he can get Hi Jump Kick as 
well, Triple Kick kinda loses all meaning, don't you think?

Twineedle - Bug - 25 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Always attacks twice.  Has a 
19.9% chance of poisoning the opponent.  This attack is Beedrill's specialty.  
If you're going to use Beedrill, you may as well have this too.

Twister - Dragon - 40 - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Has a 19.9% chance of making 
the opponent switch if the user is faster than the opponent.  It's too weak 
to have any practical use.  If you want a Dragon move, go with Dragonbreath.

---------

Vicegrip - Normal - 55 - 99.6% - 30 PP - 48 PP - A fairly weak Normal attack.

Vine Whip - Grass - 35 - 99.6% - 10 PP - 16 PP - This attack is too weak for 
how little PP it has.

Vital Throw - Fighting - 70 - 100% - 10 PP - 16 PP - Always attacks second, 
never misses.  This is decent, but when you consider that you must attack 
second, Cross Chop just looks so much better on that Machamp.

---------
| ~ W ~ |
---------

Water Gun - Water - 40 - 99.6% - 25 PP - 40 PP - Another weak Water attack, 
and you don't even get a Speed drop chance with this one.

Waterfall (HM 07) - Water - 80 - 99.6% - 15 PP - 24 PP - A weaker version of 
Surf.

Whirlpool (HM 06) - Water - 15 (initial) - 69.5% - 15 PP - 24 PP - Traps the 
opponent for 2-5 turns afterwards.  It deals damage after the opponent 
attacks.  The damage is equal to 1/16, or 6.25%, of the opponent's total HP.  
It's weak and inaccurate.  Steer clear.

Whirlwind - Normal - N/A - 99.6% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Forces the opponent to 
switch.  Just like Roar, this is fun to use with Spikes.  It is very handy to 
use against Pokemon who are trying to get setup with Curse, Agility, Swords 
Dance, etc.  It annoys the heck out of them.

Wing Attack - Flying - 60 - 99.6% - 35 PP - 56 PP - This is the only other 
good Flying attack aside from Drill Peck (Drill Peck is still better, but 
those who can't get Drill Peck should use this).  It's fairly weak, but it's 
accurate, and it has a crap load of PP.

Withdraw - Water - N/A - 99.6% - 40 PP - 64 PP - Raises the user's Defense.  
This raises Defense in exactly the same manner as Defense Curl, so refer to 
that for values.
 
Wrap - Normal - 15 (initial) - 84.4% - 20 PP - 32 PP - Traps the opponent for 
2-5 turns and removes 1/16, or 6.25%, of their HP after every turn.  Another 
weak, inaccurate, fairly useless trapping move.

---------

Zap Cannon (TM 07) - Electric - 100 - 49.6% - 5 PP - 8 PP - Paralyzes every 
time it hits.  That's why I like this attack.  Instant paralysis for Pokemon 
who can't get Stun Spore, Thunder Wave, or Body Slam.  It hits about once 
every other turn.  Not bad at all.  It is good to use when you know the 
opponent will switch.  Ursaring and Rhydon are two powerhouses who can get 
this (even though Rhydon can get Body Slam too...).  Can you imagine Ursaring 
and Rhydon with the Speed advantage?  Be afraid.

This will be a quick reference chart that will tell you the attack, what type 
the attack is, the attack's base damage, and the attack's accuracy. (Look, I 
even divided them by letters, aren't I nice?) This chart should be used only 
after you've read an explanation of the attack found above in the analysis 
section, as the chat leaves out some vital details, such as effects of 
attacks (and effects is all an attack is, in some cases - look at Curse).

 ~ Thanks to Uiru for so much he has helped me with.  He allowed me to use 
the initial attack list, which I broke down and analyzed and added here.  He 
also provided a great deal of the numbers involved with the attacks.  He also 
gave me the critical hit formula and the Hidden Power formula.  Check out his 
awesome website at http://database.stumpnet.net/.
 ~ Thanks to Azure Heights for providing the information about the confusion 
formula and the Double Team, Minimize, Kinesis, Flash, Smokescreen, and Sand-
Attack values on their comprehensive website: http://www.azureheights.com. 
 ~ Thanks to Nintendo for this great game. 
 ~ Thanks to CJayC for this website and for posting this FAQ.
