New Moves

For the new moves, there are only four, and they are all related to the new Pokémon introduced with in DLC. They are as follows:

  • Blood Moon – Normal Type | 140 Power | 100 Accuracy | The user unleashes the full brunt of its spirit from a full moon that shines as red as blood. This move can’t be used twice in a row. This is a move that can be learnt by Ursaluna.
  • Matcha Gotcha – Grass Type | 80 Power | 90 Accuracy | The user fires a blast of tea that it mixed. The user’s HP is restored by up to half the damage taken by the target. This may also leave the target with a burn. This move is learnt by Sinistcha.
  • Syrup Bomb – Grass Type | 60 Power | 85 Accuracy | The user sets off an explosion of sticky candy syrup. This coats the target and causes the target’s Speed stat to drop each turn for three turns. This is a move learnt by Dipplin.
  • Ivy Cudgel – Grass Type | 100 Power | 100 Accuracy | The user strikes with an ivy-wrapped cudgel. This move’s type changes depending on the mask worn by the user. It has a heightened chance of landing a critical hit. This is a move learnt by Ogerpon.
