Niantic has revealed that Earth Power, a powerful new Ground-type Charged Attack move, has been added to Pokémon GO.

The move was first introduced in Generation IV, and, when used in battle, makes the ground under the enemy Pokémon erupt with power. In Pokémon GO, it could also lower your opponent’s defense in Trainer Battles.

The developer has, somewhat vaguely, stated that “certain Pokémon recently arrived from the Sinnoh region will know Earth Power,” but there are others that could know the move such as Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Aerodactyl, Camerupt, and Claydol.
