Pokemon Go API – Charged Move API

This post talks about the newest Pokemon Go API, the Charged Move API at pogoapi.net.

Charged moves in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go there are two different types of moves, fast moves and charged moves. Charged moves can only be used when the special bar showing the energy is charged up. Once it is charged enough for the move it can be used by pressing the charged button.

These moves are the stronger of the two and depending on the move may be less important when fighting bosses. These abilities will do a large amount of damage and will be crucial in taking down stronger bosses.

This API will give the full details of the charged move such as the power of the move, how long it takes to perform, and the energy requirements.
