Legacy Move FAQ

What are Legacy Moves?
Legacy moves are when a Pokemon knows a move that it can no longer learn. The only way to have a legacy move is to have obtained that Pokemon moveset before it was made discontinued

How are Legacy Moves created?
Some Pokemon were temporarily given moves they were never supposed to know, Some Pokemon moves have been swapped out for balancing purposes, and more recently 'limited-time' moves are released as part of events (like Community day). All of these scenarios are how Legacy Moves get created

Obtaining Legacy moves is only possible:
- If you receive one in a trade
- If Niantic releases them as a special event
- If another moveset re-shuffle occurs

How does the list work?
Each move listed has a date upon which it became unobtainable. If you played the game a long time ago, or played during a recent event, you may have some Pokemon with Legacy moves. Use this list to see which Pokemon you might have that are considered collectable

Legacy moves can NOT be created by:
- Evolving an old Pokemon
- Using a TM on an old Pokemon
- Evolving a legacy Pokemon

What else?
Legacy moves are generally not better in battle (but some are!)
People like to keep them because they are collectors items.
