Several dozen Pokemon Go moves have just been changed.

As of Tuesday, the duration of most of the game’s quick moves has been altered; these speeds had been lengthened in a recent update, but now they appear to be back down to their normal speed. In addition, for some moves the power has been reduced, as has the energy gain and the damage inflicted.

A particularly noteworthy change was to the move Water Gun, which previously inflicted 10 damage but now only inflicts five damage. With these recent move changes, it’s now slightly easier to take down Blissey, who in recent days had proven to be absolutely unstoppable.

The following chart breaks down which moves were altered on February 21st, as well as in what way they were altered. For more detailed information about each move and how its data has been changed, head over to Pokemon Go Hub.
