PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I was curious and wanted to know about all the moves positively and negatively affected by weather and terrain. I don't mean any Water- or Fire-type moves that get boosted in the sun or rain. I mean a move like Thunder that gets boosted accuracy in the rain or Grassy Glide gets priority in Grassy Terrain.
