A G-Max Move (Japanese: キョダイマックスわざ Kyodaimax Move) is a special type of move introduced in Generation VIII. G-Max Moves are special Max Moves that are exclusive to Gigantamax Pokémon.


For Gigantamax Pokémon, damaging moves of a certain type become its exclusive G-Max Move instead of the normal corresponding Max Move. Each species of Gigantamax Pokémon has its own unique G-Max Move, and vice versa. Like Max Moves, the damage category and base power of G-Max Moves are taken from that of the compatible base move, and cannot be fully protected against by protection moves (such as Detect and King's Shield), except by the Max Move Max Guard. G-Max Moves use the same power as their Max Move counterparts, and thus the only difference between a G-Max Move and a Max Move of the same type is its secondary effect.
