It's probably an instinct for Pokemon. In the game you teach the Pokemon the moves, so of course they would know the names, but it's sort of the same as how you know to drink water, an instinct. Since they learn the moves by themselves in the Anime, there's a good chance they would know what it would be referred to by humans.
