Giga Moves are super powerful moves every Pokémon has. Each Pokémon has one that's unique to them. These moves can not be used at the start of the battle, they must be charged up. They also can't be used unless they are holding their Giga Crystal, a special item that allows a Pokémon to use its Giga Move.
Charging Giga Moves
Giga Moves can be charged by doing many different things. Using moves and being attacked are the main ways the Giga Meter raises. Being hit by S.T.A.B. attacks raise it higher as well as being hit super effectively. Wild Pokémon's Giga Meters raise twice as fast.
Like the moves them selves, their is a unique crystal for every Pokémon. The crystals are all named the Pokémon's name and than Crystal after it. For example, Pikachu uses the Pikachu Crystal. Every wild Pokémon have a chance they will hold their Giga Crystal, some more common then others.
