A move (also known as an attack or technique) is what Pokémon have primarily used in battle ever since the Generation I games. In battle, a Pokémon uses one move each turn. Some moves (mainly moves learned by Hidden Machines) can be used outside of battle as well, usually for the purpose of removing obstacles or exploring new areas.

Moves have always been learned by leveling up, by use of Technical and Hidden Machines, and some Pokémon can learn moves by evolving. Since Generation II, they can also be learned through breeding and from Move Tutors. The Pokémon Smeargle can also use a move called Sketch to learn a move in battle.

A Pokémon can only know four moves at a time. The moves which each Pokémon can learn is dependent on the Pokémon's type. In battle, moves can cause damage, affect a Pokémon's stats, heal the user, make the opponent flee, etc. When there are less than four moves known by a Pokémon, the remaining slots not filled will be indicated by a double dash (--). A Pokémon can never forget a move once it has been learned except to replace it with another move or by the Move Deleter.
