This Article shows the main nerf's throughout the generations.
Also, this (credit to sumwun for the list!!) is a bigger list that showcases move changes.

Please tell me if there are some that I missed which weren't in the Article.

Extras which weren't in the article:

1. Hyper Beam Nerf: In Gen 1, Hyper Beam, if it knocked out the opposing Pokémon, would have no recharge.
This was changed in Gen 2, where Hyper Beam always had a recharge, regardless of the opposing Pokémon being knocked out by it, or not.

Hope it helped!

Thanks! :)
You're welcome!
This answer is definitely not complete. It doesn't include the hyper beam nerf from gen 1 to gen 2.

Also, this is literally just copied and pasted from your source, as far as I can tell. Why did you even use pastebin when you could have just linked your source and said "here is a list" or something?
Here's a bigger list, but it's still incomplete. https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_modified_moves
