A curiosity that exists within any healthy child can be found in his eyes as well at the vagueness of your answer - he stares at you for a moment longer, brow furrowed and lip twisted in some sort of confused expression. However, his glance softens a little as he ruminates on it. You did state that you were helping him because everyone else was just sitting around and doing nothing, proving to him that, perhaps unlike the other adults in his life, you were listening to him. While he seemed suspicious beforehand enough to where a vague reassurance isn't enough to entirely quell it, his posturing does relax in the slightest and the furrowed wonder in his brow turns into a sharper, angled confidence.
He mulls over the list of commands you had stated earlier, perhaps unable to admit that he's entirely lost and needs help. His lack of experience is, after all, what brought him into this situation in the first place; the attacks that some Pokemon naturally and instinctively know are lost on him entirely. Context clues, thankfully, can be found in the names. Power-Up Punch seems like a good place to start - it implies some sort of bulk to be obtained from the move, and at once, his mind is made up. As hasty as he is firey, the kid barks out his first command. "Power-Up Punch!" He demands, arms stiffly falling to his sides.
Still, he is a child, and some part of him can't help but look at you with uncertainty flaring in his gaze, as though he is silently asking you if he had done alright.
