Moves that pokemon DO learn but shouldn't

I am truly shameless.
I think Manaphy shouldn't learn Tail Glow. It doesn't fit the japanese translation firefly light, or the english name either. It simply has it to p*ss off Ampharos.

Doduo shouldn't get tri attack until it evolves.

That's not a problem anymore, though, since it can't learn it in the 4th gen.

Those things on it's head glow iirc.

Machop shouldn't be able to learn Scary Face. Who could be scated of that cute face? :D <3

Same goes with Flareon.

I believe that all non-Rock-type Pokémon should not be able to learn Stealth Rock, as in my opinion it does not even begin to make sense for them to be able to use such a move.

Yes, but are they fireflies or tails? No. They're antennae, which means it makes no sense for Manaphy to learn it.

Lucario can apparently learn Dragon Pulse.
Lucario gets most, if not all pulse attacks, I think it has to do with its whole aura controlling deal.

Now, Torchic learning Mega Punch, DynamicPunch, and Seismic Toss through FR/LG/E move tutors, THAT makes no sense.

Shuckle is capable of using double team despite being the slowest pokemon. Apparently, double team means moving so fast it appears as if they're making copies of themselves. Huge pokemon like Snorlax, Rhyperior, Mamoswine, Hariyama and Groundon couldn't possibly move such huge bodies that fast without seriously damaging themselves.

On my own here we go
Gible + Earthquake = Not Enough Body Mass

Normal Types can learn alot of different Typed Attacks.

The EVER SO POPULAR Wooper + Ice Punch = Wooper has no Arms!

And if you got your Togepi from FR/LG and didnt waste the Softboiled Tutor on a Chansey/Blissy/Eggacute/Exeggutor, then Togetic/Togekiss (Togekiss if you Migrate the Togetic) with Softboiled. THEY HAVE NO EGG. And what does Togepi do? Hatch itself? Lol.

That's because normal type is basically "magic type", in my opinion.

But once you think about it FIREFLYS Don't have tails.

It's a glow attack that boost special attack, manaphy glows. The end.

Hand-related moves learned by armless Pokemon and special moves learned by some Pokemon such as Tauros and Pokemon who are more physical oriented.

Catching up on XY
Primeape can have Iron Tail even though it doesn't have a tail (Mankey, however, does have a tail so...yeah)

But I'm pretty sure it can actually learn it! By TM, a PRIMEAPE can learn it,

Uses of Psychics
Primape and Alakazam, because of their pre-evolutions, can learn Iron Tail, so they attack with something they don't have.

...Not that you'd teach a Kadabra Iron Tail, anyways. If you do, you need to see its attack stat.

Plus, Porygon can learn Tri Attack. What is it attacking with? Tri Attack is already a wierd move, and Porygon learning it is even stranger.
