    Questions (open)

    1. This move can potentially have the highest base power of all special moves.
    2. Of the Pokemon that learn Stored Power by level up, the one that doesn't share an egg group with the rest is also the only one of its type that can learn these other moves by any means other than evolving from a Pokemon that knew them (alphabetic order).
    3. This is the lowest base power at which Stored Power will have a different base power from any move with a set base power, and it can be achieved in one turn using this signature move (format as base power in number form, signature move ie:60, Earthquake)
