PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

In season 12, episode 24 of the anime, there have been several instances when some Pokemon used the move Hyper Beam, but they didn't have to recharge. For example: (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NcheLfkMuu8SYovKSQv6nwzB4cOcZnCk/view?usp=drivesdk) In picture 1, Salamence uses Hyper Beam, and the time is 6:13. (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NoF4PgdJA5V_OXxR7YW_avhiXcBhriTR/view?usp=drivesdk) Salamence uses Hyper Beam again, and the time is 6:15.

Another instance is in these pictures. (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NsiIP49iuFjBfTuaU_ycY38p48sdPrET/view?usp=drivesdk) (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NvC8UnJyTe1zmIxTjV69tr4n-5b1PhFi/view?usp=drivesdk) (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NvEqUFGp45Dnc0Fz_m7Ce_sBsQ4hqI0A/view?usp=drivesdk) The Regis use Hyper Beam several times without recharging. Also, I'm pretty sure the Regis used Hyper Beam more than 5 turns and shouldn't have had the PP to continue using the move. If someone could explain this, that would be great.

How do I do that?
Never mind. Think I figured it out.
I think the anime could not represent Pokemon recharging also not everything in the games are represented perfectly in the anime like charizard learning tackle for example we see a good example of that in the kalos anime when team rocket try to control a salamence it uses Hyper beam consecutively without recharging. Also most Pokemon represented there are seen as ferocious, dangerous,Extremely OP and  recharging would make them look more under control and would not help the action .
hope I helped
Didn't Hydro Cannon's recharge was shown in Sinnoh league? Barry's Empoleon against Paul.
There was also a scene where torterra was recharging after using frenzy plant, sorry for the necro, but I think this answer should be flagged, as it clearly is wrong

It's the anime, nothing makes sense in animes.
anyways, I watched an episode of journeys and a rhyperior used rock wrecker 3 times in a row and also,
sometimes team rockets wobbufet sometimes uses counter on special moves and it works.
so, yeah.
