The four capabilities represent the most basic aspects of a Trainer. Capabilities change fairly infrequently, so your initial choice of Capabilities is important. Each of the 4 Capabilities is linked to different Skills.

The Power Capability determines the physical strength of a trainer, and gives additional Stat Points.
The Intelligence Capability determines mental acuity and awareness, and gives additional Skill Points.
The Confidence Capability helps Trainers lead Pokemon and people alike, and gives additional Skill Points.
The Agility Capability determines the physical speed and mobility of a trainer, and gives additional Stat Points.

Every Trainer starts with Pound by default. You may then fill up as many as your remaining three slots as you are able whose prerequisites you qualify.

Each time you gain a level, you may fill up one empty slot with a move for which you qualify, OR replace ONE move in your Move List with a new one if your Move List is already full.
