A recent update for Pokémon Home has been datamined, and found to contain brand new move names (courtesy of CPokemon.com) – twenty-two of them, in fact! It is likely these are all for the upcoming DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield, especially as one of those (Jungle Healing) was confirmed as Zarude’s unique move. This makes the remaining attacks (twenty-one of them) brand new – provided of course they get fully implemented.
The moves have appeared in three different languages:
|Expanding Force||Vaste Pouvoir||Vastenergia|
|Scale Shot||Rafale Écailles||Squamacolpo|
|Meteor Beam||Laser Météore||Raggiometeora|
|Shell Side Arm||Kokiyarme||Armaguscio|
|Skitter Smack||Ravage Rampant||Strisciacolpo|
|Burning Jealousy||Feu Envieux||Fiamminvidia|
|Lash Out||Cent Rancunes||Sfogarabbia|
|Corrosive Gas||Gaz Corrosif||Gas Corrosivo|
|Flip Turn||Eau Revoir||Virata|
|Triple Axel||Triple Axel||Triplo Axel|
|Dual Wingbeat||Double Volée||Doppia Ala|
|Scorching Sands||Sable Ardent||Sabbiardente|
|Jungle Healing||Selve Salvatrice||Giunglacura|
|Wicked Blow||Poing Obscur||Pugnotenebra|
|Surging Strikes||Torrent de Coups||Idroraffica|
Some speculation on these moves are:
- Wicked Blow and Surging Strikes are for Urshifu – it has two forms, Single Strike Style and Rapid Strike Style. The latter is a Fighting/Water type too, and the attack has a consistent water-based naming scheme to it.
- Triple Axel and Dual Wingbeat may be for the seeming Galarian forms of Zapdos and Moltres, again given the consistent numbering theme.
- Shell Side Arm could potentially be for a Galarian Slowbro and/or Slowking form.
Further comes from this source, albeit this is also currently speculation:
So to summarize
Flip turn is water uturn
Wicked Shot is Dark Urshifu move
Surging Strikes is Water Urshifu Move
Skitter Smack is a Bug move (Crawling ravage is the translation)
Flip Turn is water uturn
And Corrosive Gas is probably either poisoning or doing damage to steel types

We’ll see what we find out further from later datamines and official announcements. What else would you like to see added to the DLC?
