Trivia Secret Power is the only move that can have a chance of freezing higher than 10%, excluding Blizzard in the Japanese Generation I handheld games. Secret Power is the only physical move able to induce sleep. Secret Power only uses the animations of damage-dealing moves. In Generation IV and V as well as Pokémon X and Y, Secret Power only uses the animations of single-target moves. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Secret Power uses the animation of Incinerate in a volcanic area and the animation of Swift in space, the only instances of it using the animation of a multi-target move in Generation VI. As a result, it has a unique animation when used in Horde Encounters in volcanic areas (there are no battles with multiple opponents in space). Incinerate shoots fireballs at all opponents, whereas Secret Power only shoots a fireball at the target. This is the only instance in the core series games that Secret Power has a unique animation. In Generation VII, Secret Power uses the animation of Incinerate when used in volcanic areas, the only instance of it using the animation of a multi-target move in that generation. Unlike in Generation VI, it uses the same animation as Incinerate in battles with multiple opponents, causing both opponents to react to the hit despite the move only affecting one of them.
