    If you have another question, ask a new question. Don't edit new questions into current question, as that invalidates the answers.

  • Is that why it was voted down? If so; if I tried to ask another one with those goalposts it would have been classified as a duplicate. Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 13:52

    Could you put a list here please? My computer doesn't accept very many links. Thank you anyway. Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 13:36
  • Thank you. This is the most useful answer I've gotten. So thank you. Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 13:47
  • One last thing, I've noticed the source I used covers all of Pokemon. So some moves may not be available in X/Y. If you are able to get on the website directly, each move is linked to its own database file, and lists its in-game description. If there is an in game description for XY, the move is available in XY. It's my pleasure to help, but for future reference, general comments saying thanks are generally discouraged ;).

    @Timelord64 All moves should be available in XY. If I recall, no moves have ever been removed from Pokemon between generations, just altered.

  • Boomburst
  • Petal Blizzard
  • Discharge
  • Searing Shot
  • Earthquake
  • Lava Plume
  • Bulldoze
  • Selfdestruct

Note that all weather attacks will also hit every enemy. Also, spikes will affect every enemy pokemon.
