Primarina’s z-move has 195 power, but decidueye’s and incineroar’s are only 180 base power. Why? I am sorry if this is against the rules, I am new.

Game Freak logic
probably because it is the weaker of the three starters

Probably because Sparkling Aria has higher base power than Darkest Lariat and Spirit Shackle.

Ok, thanks. Funny part is primarina’s HA boosts sparkling aria even more
A FOOLISH MISCALCULATION! Unlike the -ate and -ize abilities, liquid voice does not boost the power of these new water type moves. It's still pretty useful, as you can can a special attack buff with a stab hyper voice while holding throat spray, though.
Oh ok.
