Niantic has made adjustments to Pokemon moves, changing move sets drastically. These Pokemon move changes have affected many popular Pokemon, most notably Gyarados. According to The Silph Road subreddit, users have charted out the changes to the game file, listing all the recent Pokemon move changes.
According to the Pokemon Go Reddit community, these Pokemon move changes took place sometime today. It’s a clear sign that Niantic is continuing to make tweaks to game play balance and move sets. For people who still don’t have Gyarados however, it’s a definite loss. Losing Dragon Breath means that Gyarados has been nerfed to some degree.
If you already have a Gyarados pre-update, count yourself fortunate. Some of the other notable changes include Chansey getting Hyper Beam to replace Psybeam.
