The rule technically reads that way. What happens in practice is that people say "oh this move is explicitly more exhausting they have to take a one-mover now or suffer".

If people are reffing exhaustion well, you will not get off two Thunders without the second being a big ask.

Relatedly, how do people feel about moves losing power earlier and speed drops only happen after exhaustion lingers? I feel like that is actually is more balanced and easier to ref.
