Unused Moves

A few signature moves of removed Pokémon still remain in the game, although they are not available to the player. Unlike the removed moves listed below, these have proper descriptions and, theoretically, can still be used.

ID Name Type Category PP Power Accuracy Pokémon Description
0x009E Hyper Fang Normal Physical 15 80 90% Various rodent-like Pokémon The user bites hard on the target with its sharp front fangs. This may also make the target flinch.
0x01C0 Chatter Normal Special 20 60 90% Chatot The user attacks the target with sound waves of deafening chatter. This confuses the target.
0x01C1 Judgment Normal Special 10 100 100% Arceus The user releases countless shots of light at the target. This move’s type varies depending on the kind of Plate the user is holding.
0x01D0 Dark Void Dark Status 10 - 50% Darkrai Opposing Pokémon are dragged into a world of total darkness that makes them sleep.
0x01D1 Seed Flare Grass Special 5 120 85% Shaymin The user emits a shock wave from its body to attack its target. This may also harshly lower the target’s Sp. Def stat.
0x0223 Relic Song Normal Special 10 75 100% Meloetta The user sings an ancient song and attacks by appealing to the hearts of the listening opposing Pokémon. This may also induce sleep.
0x0251 Hyperspace Hole Psychic Special 5 80 - Hoopa Using a hyperspace hole, the user appears right next to the target and strikes. This also hits a target using a move such as Protect or Detect.
0x0269 Light of Ruin Fairy Special 5 140 90% AZ's Floette Drawing power from the Eternal Flower, the user fires a powerful beam of light. This also damages the user quite a lot.
0x026D Hyperspace Fury Dark Physical 5 100 - Hoopa Using its many arms, the user unleashes a barrage of attacks that ignore the effects of moves like Protect and Detect. But the user’s Defense stat falls.
0x0299 Ice Hammer Ice Physical 10 100 90% Crabominable The user swings and hits with its strong, heavy fist. It lowers the user’s Speed, however.
0x02A0 Toxic Thread Poison Status 20 - 100% Spinarak-line The user shoots poisonous threads to poison the target and lower the target’s Speed stat.
0x02AE Revelation Dance Normal Special 15 90 100% Oricorio The user attacks the target by dancing very hard. The user’s type determines the type of this move.
0x02B2 Beak Blast Flying Physical 15 100 100% Toucannon The user first heats up its beak, and then it attacks the target. Making direct contact with the Pokémon while it’s heating up its beak results in a burn.

Removed Moves

Moves that cannot legitimately be learned by any Pokémon in the game are coded in, but grayed-out and unusable in battle. They also get a dummy description: This move can't be used. It's recommended that this move is forgotten. Once forgotten, this move can't be remembered.

It is worth noting that the stats for the special starter moves Pikachu and Eevee can learn in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! were reverted to the stats seen in that game's prototype, but as these moves are unobtainable, this is never seen in gameplay. Additionally, Psycho Boost and Tail Glow had descriptions identical to the ones in the Generation 7 games, but in update 1.3.0 these were dummied out.

Oddities

Fire/Water Pledge Silvally

The bug in which Silvally cannot be tutored either Fire Pledge or Water Pledge, despite being able to learn Grass Pledge, is carried over from Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Earthquake Melmetal

Hmmm...
To do:
Find out which patch added the ability for it to learn the move through TR, since initially it wasn't able to do so. Until then, you had to transfer one with the move from the Let's Go games.)

Unused Evolution Moves

Alolan Marowak and Exeggutor still retain being able to learn Shadow Bone and Dragon Hammer, respectively, upon evolution. However, Cubone and Exeggcute are not able to evolve into their Alolan counterparts in this game, so this goes unseen.

Melmetal is set to learn Thunder Punch upon evolution. Since Meltan cannot evolve in this game, only being able to do so in Pokémon GO, this goes unseen.
