All these bolded names! I'm not really a regular here, but:

So how far would these 'effects' go? Volt Switch and U-turn deal with effects that will happen 100% of the time. They are obviously related. I doubt that anyone really would object to having Lava Plume and Scald: they are a bit less powerful options with the same 30% chance to Burn. They have the same BP, effect, but different typing. But now, would Dark Pulse and Waterfall be put into 'related'? I'm sure if anyone looked at Waterfall, they would do so because of its attacking ability, not its 20% (albeit annoying to face) flinch rate. Surely, having Bug Buzz and Earth Power and stuff like that as related just because of the 10% Special Defense drop would be ridiculous, as the consensus at the moment seems to say that we shouldn't necessarily put moves as related just because they have that same 90 Base Power. Would these 'effects' only come into play with 30% or higher effects?
