Damage done to a Pokémon is the amount of HP taken away when a move is successful. The following moves all deal damage, meaning that no matter how high the defenses of the Pokémon, they will always lower its HP by at least 1, unless the target is either immune to the attack (this includes types deflected by Wonder Guard) or the target uses a move like Protect. This list does not account for moves such as Assist, Metronome, Mirror Move, and Copycat, which can deal damage based on copying other moves.
