"There are about 800 known moves, and each daemon species is able to perform a few dozen kinds on average and have 4 ready in their mind at a time. Some moves can be learned by almost anyone, while others are rare.
"Some create a material out of nothing: water, sand, rock, silk, plant matter, steel, gold. They can generate electricity, light, or heat, or take away heat to make something cold. Um. Healing, teleportation, putting people to sleep or stopping them from moving. A few others. Many are only useful in fights between daemons.
"There are also special effects that certain daemons have. Suicune like Araeneve in particular can purify water. Those don't count for the 4-move limit. Right now, Araeneve knows the moves Blizzard, Surf, Reflect, and Rest - that means she can create a room-sized vortex of cold air and snow, create water, make a wall of light that slows things trying to pass through, and can go into a short trance-like sleep to recover if injured."
