Moves not in the Pokémon games
From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

This is a list of moves that have appeared in the anime, manga, and TCG that have not appeared in the games.
In Pokémon Adventures
- MegaVolt: a stronger version of Thunderbolt (10 times the strength), used to defeat Lance.
- Finger Shake: This seems to be a minor form of Metronome, allowing Togepi to send a strong energy blast at the foe.
- Super Rising Thunder: A stronger version of Thunder, used to defeat the Masked Man.
In the anime
- Ash's Pidgeotto
- Gust Counter-Attack: a variation of Gust, used to force the foe to evade. This technique was used only once by Ash's Pidgeotto in Ash Catches a Pokémon. Pidgeotto slams its wings together, creating a small air flow around his wings forcing Jessie's Ekans to jump away.
- Ash's Charizard
- Aerial Submission: Charizard spins while flying causing damage to a Pokémon clinging onto it. Used against Blaine's Magmar in Volcanic Panic.
- Flaming Seismic Toss: a combination of Charizard's Seismic Toss and Fire Spin along with Dragonair's Dragon Rage. Used in Better Eight Than Never.
- Mikey's Eevee
- Rage Tackle: a more powerful Tackle used in The Battling Eevee Brothers.
- Egan's Flareon
- Flaming Tackle: a variation of Flame Wheel used in Some Like It Hot.
- Ash's Pikachu and Swellow
- Thunder Armor: Pikachu uses Thunder on itself and Swellow. This improvised technique increases both Pikachu and Swellow's Speed and Attack, allowing them to subdue their opponents with relative ease. This was used in Solid as a Solrock.
- Ash's Buizel
- Ice Aqua Jet: a combination of an Template:Type2 move and Aqua Jet. It was attempted first in A Stand-Up Sit-Down! as a contest combination, invented by Dawn. Later, it was perfected by Ash and used in the Wallace Cup as well as the battle between Ash and Crasher Wake. It was used again in Classroom Training! with the help of Candice's Abomasnow's Blizzard.
- Counter Shield
- Ash's Pikachu
- Volt Tail: a combination of Iron Tail and Volt Tackle. An improvised move where Pikachu starts off with Volt Tackle and pulls off Iron Tail a second before it hits. Used against Sho's Raichu in Pika and Goliath!.
- Counter Shield
In Super Smash Bros.
- Puff Up (Japanese: おおきくなる Grow): Jigglypuff's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 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: Lucario's Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 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: Pikachu's standard B special move in the series. 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 was stronger and, as with all of Pichu's electric moves in that game, did a little bit of damage to Pichu when it uses it.
- There is a move in the TCG that shares this name.
In the TCG
The Pokémon Trading Card Game frequently invents new moves for Pokémon to use. It should be noted however, that some moves that appear in the card game go on to appear in the video games. For example, in the very first set released, Poliwrath knew Whirlpool and Magikarp knew Flail, moves not introduced in the game until Generation II.
