Fast Attacks
  • Introduction
  • Charged Attacks
0

Fast Attacks are usable by your Pokémon without any energy cost, and generally have a lower DPS (damage per second) than Charged Attacks. They all have a damage window that lasts 0.2 s.

Remember that it is possible to dodge all attacks from opposing Pokémon.

Each Pokémon in Pokémon GO can have one Fast Attack, drawn at random from one or two possibilities.

The following table details all Fast Attacks in the game, grouped by type. Feel free to use your browser's search function with Ctrl+F to find a particular attack!
