I think there's a rather big difference between attacks in the games and in the anime. The anime is, in ways, much more realistic about it. I'm talking battles overall though.

Both in the games and in the anime, one single move can sometimes OHKO a pokémon, whether it's super effective, just strong or the pokémon was in luck (critical hit). The anime helps you visualize what really happens when some moves are used. I like that they changed Ember to be really embers rather than small flames. And Confusion, I didn't understand how that worked until I saw Psyduck in the anime make its opponents stumble or accidentally hit themselves in confusion.

All in all, if there's something I still love watching in the anime, it's the big battles. The games, being turn based and all, can't be as vivid as the anime.
