What I mean is:
Wood Hammer, Double Edge, Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, Volt Tackle are all physical have the same BP, PP and all have a recoil worth 1/3rd of damage dealt.
Such moves, including status moves are to be given in the answer.
Please include in a separate category:
1) Moves meeting above condition but different in special effect. Eg: Thunder punch, Fire punch, Ice Punch meet the above conditions, but inflict different major status ailments.
2) Moves similar in every way other than description. Eg: false swipe, hold back
3) Moves meeting above conditions but having different PP. Eg: Iron defense, Acid armour

In case any other such categories which I have are there, please add them to your answer.
I realise this list is hard to compile, so thanks in advance for your answer.

Did he? I don't remember it not saying that in the first place.
I’m 90% sure he did that but I’m not going to make blind accusations like he did to me on RMT.
I only changed that one letter.
Dudes chill, it's just a comment.
sumwun didn't do something immoral, just edited a comment.
@Deathrider hope my answer helped.

This is what you want to do? So you want to put moves together when they have different base powers?
@EvilTwinNeedle™, I didn't misunderstand what you said.
@sumwun, No.
@Hellfire Taco, Yes.
If you want to make this answer a good answer, then you should probably check all the base powers to make sure they're the same. Also, bonemerang and gear grind have different accuracies. Agility and rock polish have different PP's. Glare and thunder wave have different accuracies and PP's.
Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight are the same.
Ok. I'll add that.
