==Trivia==
* Unlike {{m|Morning Sun}}, {{p|Espeon}}'s [[signature move]] in Generation II, Moonlight was not learnable only by Umbreon. However, because of Espeon's association with that move, Moonlight can still be considered Umbreon's equivalent move as they occupy similar positions in each Pokémon's moveset.
+
* Moonlight is one of the four moves from [[Generation II]] to have its type changed in a later Generation, along with {{m|Charm}}, {{m|Curse}}, and {{m|Sweet Kiss}}.
* Despite the name's association with the night, Moonlight actually restores more HP in sunny conditions (which can be considered an opposite with nighttime). This could be a reference to the fact that moonlight is in fact just sunlight that's been reflected by the Moon.
+
** Excluding Curse, all of them were {{type|Normal}} moves that became {{type|Fairy}} moves in [[Generation VI]].
