Reason: newer TCG-exclusive moves (EX Series and on).

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

In the anime

  • Ash's Pidgeotto
    • Gust Counterattack: 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.
Thunder Armor

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 (Japanese: はどうのあらし Wave 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 manga

MegaVolt

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

MegaVolt (Japanese: 100まんボルト 1,000,000 Volts): a stronger version of Thunderbolt (10 times the strength), used to defeat Lance.
Super Rising Thunder (Japanese: 超ライジングサンダー Super Rising Thunder): A stronger version of Thunder, used to defeat the Masked Man.

In 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.
