Smart support moves

Pokémon can have up to four moves, but at the start most will have just two, and one of those is likely to be a support move of some kind.

A power or defense boost to yourself, a boost of either kind to the whole team, a status effect heal, a potion, there's a variety, and luckily they don't take up any of the energy you need to actually do attacks to the other team. Though, they are limited use in each scenario.

It's smart to boost the strength of your party, or the Pokémon you're immediately using, at the start of a fight, just as it is to heal any Pokémon that look like they might faint, but of course this can give the opponent to attack a few more times without taking damage, which can be disastrous.

It differs from battle to battle, but being smart about using these support moves really can make all of the difference.
