What happens to old moves when migrating Pokemon?

3 votes

If you have a special move in the old games and you migrate it to the new games, would it still be a special move?

And also is it the same with a physical move?
and also what if it has less/more accuracy than the new games and migrated it to a new game will it still be the same?
and also what if it has less/more power than the new games and migrated it to a new game will it still be the same?

P.S I am talking about the pokemon with the move and if it also the same with the TM migrated with the pokemon.

Should I put all the questions separate?
It's fine, they are all about the same thing (and the answer is the same).

The moves will simply take whatever type/category/power/accuracy it has in the game you are playing.

For example, Fire Punch is a fire move, so is always special in the older games. If you migrate a Pokemon with Fire Punch to a newer game like Platinum, it will become physical, because Fire Punch is physical in Platinum.

Same goes for the other stats. For example in Diamond/Pearl, Hypnosis is 70% accurate but in other games it's 60%. When the pokemon is in D/P Hypnosis will be 70% accurate and when its in Plat/HG/SS it's 60% accurate.
