Pokemon battles consist of an exchange of moves and ends when one Pokemon’s health is reduced to zero. In the Galar region, some Pokemon can be sent through a transfer application called Pokemon Home. When sent, the moves that the Pokemon has learned are retained. Unfortunately, many moves, including z-moves, signature moves, and even some regular moves, were cut.
Z-Moves and signature moves
A large portion of the moves that won’t make it to the Galar region are Z-moves and signature attacks. These moves debuted in Alola and the Pokemon Let’s GGo games. When a Pokemon with this move is sent to Galar, a message saying that it is best to delete it will appear. However, some Z-moves were renamed and given new effects such as Clangorous Soulblaze.
Other than some Pokemon that are not expected to return in Galar, a few moves were also removed. This includes a list of moves that were previously popular in online matches. As mentioned, when Pokemon that have these moves are sent to Galar, the game will request that the moves be deleted.
