If you click on a Attack while in battle, your Pokemon should do that Attack. If it continues to just show the Pokemon's Move Summary, something may be wrong with your game.

If you trying to use moves outside of battle, you can only uses HMs (and a few TMs) outside of battle. If you click on something outside of battle (little tree, boulder, waterfall, etc.), a Pokemon will perform an HM Move (if they know that specific HM Move). Some HMs require a certain number of Gym Badges before they can be used outside of battle.

Hope this helps!

If it went to the summary you could be holding down l or r. Thats how you normally get to the summary. If you arn't there must be something wrong with your game.
