What Are Max Moves?

 
Added:

Max Moves are Pokemon Attacks that a Pokemon can only used when a it has been Dynamaxed within a battle that allows it. When a Pokemon is Dynamaxed, all of its Attacks will be replaced with Max Moves that are specific to each Pokemon Attack Type and will vary in strength depending on how powerful the regular Pokemon Attack it is being used for is (much like that of Z-Crystals).
