Bind, Clamp, and Wrap should be in the "hits for 2-5 turns". In any case, I don't think that category should be there because those attacks have a set power. You also missed Chatter.

thank you for reminding me for all the stuff.. the list has been updated =)

If you're going to include Night Shade and Seismic Toss, you should probably include Psywave too. Also, I would suggest rewording that second category to "Gains power with consecutive hits" or something to that effect. The way it's worded now made me think you were looking for moves like Payback and Avalanche.

If you consider that the "hits for 2-5 times" category does more or less damage depending on the number, it's OK to include it, because it varies. But you also need to add Clamp, Whirlpool and that sort. As BlueOrb said, you need to include Psywave. Also, Chatter doesn't vary in power, it's always 60; what varies is the Confusion rate, so it shouldn't be included. And finally, you need to include an attack that many people do not know that vary in power: Stomp. If the foe has used Minimize, the base power of Stomp against it doubled ;). Anyway, good idea but you need to change some things.

Metronome and Mirror Move both have variable power. To continue with Seegoth's line of thinking, Earthquake does double damage if the opponent is underground using Dig and both Twister and Gust do double damage to foes using Fly or Bounce. There may be others as well.

Metronome and Mirror Move is not included because it is under the 'other' move category

Bind, Wrap, etc. hit for 2-5 turns, not 2-5 times a turn. He is correct to exclude them.

Pretty good quiz. I don't know whether you're still checking the comments, but Thunder never changes in power (only in accuracy), Pluck is always at 60 power, and Secret Power is always at 70 power. Rage increases the Attack stat upon each hit, not the power of Rage specifically. You should probably remove Nature Power and Me First, too, since they're classified as "Status" moves. There were a lot on here that I completely forgot about, though! I enjoyed it!
