Pokemon Sword and Shield

Pokemon fans became furious after learning that Gamefreak are removing 129 moves from Pokemon Sword and Shield, without any prior announcement, according to data miners. Here is a list of moves that will not make an appearance.

Creative destruction is usually not a bad thing, especially if the new content is bound to bring fans a lot of joy in the future. However, Pokemon Sword and Shield fans got riled up after learning that Gamefreak removed numerous moves from the upcoming titles. 

This is in part due to the fact that Pokemon fans can get attached to a certain Pokemon or its moves and losing them could be a deal-breaker. The other part of the disappointment is that the fans have been kept in the dark.

It is through data mining that the information surfaced as the developers didn't announce it themselves and the fact that some iconic moves such as Karate Chop are not making an appearance only fanned the flames further. 

We filtered the moves from the list found in the data dump but in case you see a duplicate, it is there because some of the moves apparently had two planned versions.
