Type Matching
The type affinities (weaknesses and resistances) for the Pokémon in the various RPGs.
Moveset
The move list for the Pokémon in the various RPGs. This section is further subdivided to moves obtained by levelling, TM/HM, and breeding. If a Pokémon cannot learn any moves from a particular method, the entire section for that method is skipped.
  • Levelling - These are moves that are obtained as a Pokémon gains experience and levels. At a certain level, the Pokémon will learn the indicated move for that level for that game. If a level is not shown, the Pokémon does not learn any attacks at that level. If a level is shown but has a dash in it, the Pokémon does not learn any attacks at that level for that specific game.
  • TM/HM - These are moves that a Pokémon can obtained through the use of a Technical Machine or a Hidden Machine.
  • Breeding - These are moves that a Pokémon can obtain through the course of breeding. The mechanics of Pokémon breeding are covered in Pokémon/Breeding Basics. Note that because of the mechanics behind breeding, it is impossible for a Pokémon to learn certain combinations of moves. For example, it is impossible for a Skarmory to have both Whirlwind and Drill Peck, although both moves will be in this section.
  • Evolution - These are moves that a Pokémon can only obtain from having evolved from another Pokémon that can obtain such a move. These moves cannot be otherwise obtained. For example, Marill will have Sing in this section, as it can only learn such a move from having evolved from an Azurill - it cannot be bred onto Marill directly. For most evolved Pokémon, moves learned from breeding will be in this section, as (with the exception of Marill) evolved Pokémon are not hatched from eggs.
  • Other Sources - These are moves that a Pokémon can obtain through certain other methods, most notably from being able to learn a move after unlocking a secret in the Pokémon Stadium series of games, or being given a Pokémon with these moves (which cannot be obtained by other means). However, this does not include moves that are obtained from various Pokémon promotions. For example, Psyduck will have Amnesia in this section, as it can only learn such a move from Pokémon Stadium.
