Pokemon battles wouldn't exist without techniques (or "moves" in the American version).  Being able to list the various techniques a pokemon may learn can be a daunting task itself, but trying to remember the names of the Japanese attacks seems downright impossible, right? 

Well, that's where this chart comes in.  If you ever come across an attack that you don't know, you can look it up here.  A big special thanks to The Mozz and DratiniRocket for helping me with this list.

*Mero-Mero is a bit of onomatopoeia that basically means "being falling down drunk."  Since that really isn't a good name for an attack, I've had to tweak the translation about it.
