Second Move Cost


#1

So, I’m sure there will eventually be a master list somewhere, but I went through all the Gen 1 Pokemon to see what a second move costs. To be honest, some of the values are sort of baffling and feel almost arbitrary. lol

Legendaries and Mythical cost 100K stardust, so I left them out. I went through every Pokemon whose final form was in Gen 1. Scyther, for example, evolves later so I counted it now.

For the sake of space, I will list the 10K and 75K. The 50K list is HUGE!

10K

Venusaur
Charizard
Blastoise
Butterfree
Beedrill
Rattata
Pidgeot
Fearow
Ekans
Raichu
Clefable
Wigglytuff
Clefable
Golbat
Golem
Gyarados

75K:

Onix
Hitmonlee
Hitmonchan
Chansey
Mr. Mime
Scyther
jynx
Electabuzz
Magmar
Pinsir
Lapras
Eevee
Omastar
Kabutops
Aerodactyl
Snorlax
Dragonite

Everything else is 50K.

Some of these make a lot of sense, but others are odd choices. Farfetch’d, for example, costs 50K to add a second move. I don’t see anyone doing that. The Gen 1 starters and Gyarados cost 10K, which is kind of a steal. Jynx, the Hitmons, and Onix cost a whopping 75K though!

UPDATE: Just went through Gen 2. Even more baffling.

10K:

Meganium
Typhlosion
Feraligatr
Furrett
Noctowl
Ledian
Ariados
Crobat
Magcargo
Octillery

75K:

Ampharos
Sudowoodo
Espeon
Umbreon
Forretress
Steelix
Gligar
Scizor
Delibird
Mantine
Skarmory
Hitmontop
Blissey
Miltank
Tyranitar

Lies.
25 k for Gyarados
Not everyone is the same


#3

Seriously? Trainers have different costs? What an odd thing to do. lol


#4

Nope never mind that is for candy
25 candy
10 k stardust


#5

Ah, OK. I was gonna say … lol …


#6

I don’t have much of a point in doing it right now.
I would do it for Gyarados, but I needs 98 more candy for a shiny Gyarados.


#7

Great, the ones with low enough cost dont even use another move
Way to go Niansh*t


#8

Just went through Gen 2. Miltank, Mantine, Sudowoodo, and Delibird cost 75K?!!? lol

10K:

Meganium
Typhlosion
Feraligatr
Furrett
Noctowl
Ledian
Ariados
Crobat
Magcargo
Octillery

75K:

Ampharos
Sudowoodo
Espeon
Umbreon
Forretress
Steelix
Gligar
Scizor
Delibird
Mantine
Skarmory
Hitmontop
Blissey
Miltank
Tyranitar


#9

Based on egg distance


#10

I thought of that, but it doesn’t always hold true. Swinub, for example is a 2K egg … but Piloswine has a 50K cost. Porygon is from a 10K egg, but also has a 50K cost.


#11

Sorry I meant buddy distance


#12

That mostly matches up, but that’s such an odd way to go about it. Buddy distance doesn’t really equate to usefulness in PVP. It should definitely be a different tier system.

That way, if someone REALLY wants to add a second move to their Militank, it doesn’t cost a gut wrenching 75K. lol


#13

If you want to save this to your phone as a quick reference guide


#14

I used 10k on my Gyarados. I used it as a guinea pig since it was so “cheap.”


#15

Are these Double Charge moves only for PVP or are they accessible for Raids and Gym Battles?


#16

They’re permanently unlocked and you can use them in Raids and Gyms. I have video proof:


#17

Don’t hold me to this, but I think they are just available. My son just showed me. Swipe down on certain Pokemon and you can obtain 2nd Charge move. I did it for a few of my Gyrados so far. It does cost candy and dust.


#18

There are certain Pokemon that can’t learn a second Charged Move, like Feebas, Ditto and Magikarp, but why would you use those, really?

I posted a video showing that you can use two separate Charged Moves in Raids as well, so if that helps you, look at that.


#19

Yeh, I’ve seen the option to be able to get the second move even on my stupid Kids account. I wasn’t sure if it was a Primary - Secondary type scenario where the Primary one is only available for Raids and Battles and the Secondary is included for PvP.


#20

I wondered that myself, and that’s why I had to test it. You can imagine my elation when it turned out to be not the case.
