Damage Pool labeled "Varies"

Some moves have a damage pool that says "varies" instead of ___+___+___. Does that mean it has no pool or is it Pokemon specific?

Read the descriptions carefully, in there it will define what do you need to roll.

It doesn't say what I role beyond I only get 1 per every 10 levels? Which I'm asking because that's kind of weak... but if that's how it is then.

Are you talking about night shade or a similar move to it? If that is the case, in v. 1.25 it can roll from 1 to 10 dice of damage with the added bonus that it ignores defenses, so your damage pool may be small but it won’t be reduced by the foe’s defense/sp. defense.

Yeah, I see that. It's just this is the only move Solosis starts with(Psywave) so its damage is 0 until lvl10(which takes a while to gain) and you don't have other moves until you slowly gain enough exp to gain another one(as most of its moves are support/high exp cost), which means you're not spending it on things that level you faster so that it does damage - meaning it stays useless longer. It's a weird way to set it up, in my opinion, maybe the move is fine when it's not the only move you know and you're over 10, but it's just weird that it's the only one this pokemon gets for a while and in getting other moves, it is stunted for use longer.
