Charge Move

A Charge Move is a Type of Pokemon attack that deals more damage than a Fast Move. Charge Moves require stamina and therefore cannot be rapidly used during battles.

Every individual Pokemon comes equipped with one Charge Move. Different Pokemon of the same species may have a different Charge Move. However, Pokemon will generally have Moves related to their Type.

For example, Water Types will be more likely to have Charge Moves such as Aqua Jet or Water Gun, while Poison Types will more likely have Moves such as Acid or Smog.

Here is a full list of Charge Moves in Pokemon Go. The greatest number of Charge Moves by Type are Normal, Water and Grass. The least number of Charge Moves by Type are Fairy, Dragon and Dark.

How long is the start-up lag on charge moves?
Is it the same for each one?

Note the error that the chart currently has DPS and DPS w/STAB as equal. DPS without STAB is lower than listed on the current chart. Likely, this will be corrected soon.

Thanks for the great site. Unless I'm misreading something, you may have made a mistake with the charge move table. The values appear to be the same right now with and without STAB. Maybe someone forgot to put the multiplier in for the STAB moves? There was one move on the fast move page that had the same issue (bite or counter? I forget).

Small correction to my previous post - it seems that all of these were calculated with the STAB multiplier included, whether STAB moves or not.
