this page is linked from only three other pages, all of wich are user pages... how are people supposed to get here in the first place? --Ipergorilla 18:40, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I added links on all the relevant move pages, I think thats what you wanted, true?User:Dion24 22:46, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, Great! --Ipergorilla 06:54, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

New page: moves that changed in accuracy

I have an idea. A lot of moves have changed in accuracy between generations. I think there should be a page that lists those changes, like this one. I would be happy to create the page myself. Litnin200 03:06, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree, 100%. Eliza 23:30, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
You are a bit late. This page has already been created and is has been suggested to be merged with this page in the section below. --SnorlaxMonster 12:41, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Moves that changed between generations

There's this page, and the page for moves whose accuracy changed, but none yet for moves whose effects changed (e.g. Wrap lasts 4/5 turns in Gen V, but 2-5 turns previously). That's just as important a category, yet there's no page for them yet. Indeed, I think there should be actual categories for altered moves (maybe one each for power/accuracy/effect changes), but that's not quite the point of my comment.

My point is that I think this page should be merged with the accuracy one, and then add in the various other changed moves as well, and call the whole thing something like "List of moves that changed". The page layout will be the same as it currently is, but replacing the last two columns with a "what changed" column instead that briefly describes it. Opinions? ~ Serial Colour 02:06, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

While you have a good idea, most moves change a little every Generation. Power and Accuracy are rarely changed, whereas the effect is expanded on most of the time. --SnorlaxMonster 02:10, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
I get where you're coming from, which is why I suggest not listing moves whose effects were only added to, and instead only listing moves whose existing effects had been altered (e.g. Wrap as mentioned above, but not Stomp). In the case of effect probabilities going from 9.8% to 10% etc. between Gens I and II (I know there's a lot of those), they can be footnoted rather than including them all, and the same goes for certain other cases too.
In any event, I still think moves with changed effects(/types) should be listed somewhere, to go along with power/accuracy changes. I suggested merging them all into a single page because I thought it'd be tidier that way. ~ Serial Colour 02:25, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes, merging this page with list of moves that changed in accuracy would be a good idea. i can see your suggestion working out. --SnorlaxMonster 02:33, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, even if changes are usually explained on move's page, I think we still need to catalogue them. I think a page "List of moves that changes between generations", listing all changes (Base power, accuracy, added effects, chances for them and so on) would be the best solution.--ЫъГЬ 07:56, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
Try setting up that page in your userspace. I think it would end up too large, and have most moves on it. --SnorlaxMonster 08:00, 14 February 2011 (UTC)


There have been moves that had their PP modified such as Drain Punch; should that be added here as well? ht14 22:07, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

I'd say go for it. They likely aren't listed at the moment because this page was initially two pages about power and accuracy changes, and no-one's thought to add them since the merge. Werdnae (talk) 00:32, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Damgage category?

Bite between Gens I and II and multiple others during the physical/special split. Worth noting?--MisterE13 16:16, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

There's also Heal Bell which was a Sound move in Gens III and IV then lost that property. Notable?--MisterE13 19:40, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
I think it is. --SnorlaxMonster 02:25, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Priority changes table

Anyone know why the figures in the priority change tables on the page are in tiny letters? I don't think they read that well on the eyes anyway. I'd change them back to regular size, but I'll wait for an explanation. Haxorus 06:21, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
