Moves you think Pokemon should be able to learn, but can't.

Arm Wrestle?
i know this isnt an attack but chandelure shouldve got the levitate ability.
and garchomp can learn surf wtf...
alot of physical based ground types can learn surf for some unexplainable reason and garchomp cannot fly yet i seen one flying in an episode once.
Chandy with Levitate would turn Broken. But let's not talk about it.

I know, right? Nidoking and Rhydon get Surf too >.< Not to mention Kanghaskhan, Tauros, Snorlax, Sentret and Furret, Sneasel and Weavile, Miltank, Tyranitar, Zigzagoon and Linoone, Exploud, Makuhita and Hariyama, Aggron, Lati@s, Rampardos, Lickilicky, Herdier and Stoutland, Audino, Haxorus, Cubchoo, Beartic, Stunfisk, Druddigoon, Hydreigon and Bouffalant. I mean WOW MAN that's alot.

Why on Earth can zangoose not learn cut? Also does anyone else find it strange that keckleon can't learn camouflage?

Raiden Maximus
^To be fair, after using camouflage, keckleon's colour change will most likely kick in and change its typing again, making the move useless.

Serperior and Samurott should learn Earthquake and Bulldoze like every other fully evolved starter , even Pignite(who is a middle evolved starter) learns it but Serperior and Samurott don't ?!

Zekrom , Cobalion , Reshiram , Kyurem , Virizion , Keldeo , Bisharp , Genesect and Beartic(Ursaring does but Beartic doesn't?) should learn Earthquake as well .


Game developers had troll faces when making movesets for Pokemon in the 5th Gen ....

Seeing as it dances a lot, I don't see why it shouldn't. Add Fiery Dance to that list too ;)

Why can't Gyrados learn Fly?
It's part flying.
Have you seen the size of it's "wings"? They are extremely small in proportion to it's body.

Isn't that Latias' signature move? Usually, Legendary signature moves stay that way. Crustle should get Crabhammer, though. It would be a nice move for coverage, especially with Shell Smash.

I agree with all who said that Flareon needs Flare Blitz. I mean, it's just like Volt Tackle, which a pikachu, with 4 legs, can perform. Flare Blitz is just the Fire variant, so why can't this dog/cat thingy learn it?

Also, Flygon should get Dragon Dance. I just think it can do that. They even gave Haxorus DD, and I really don't see that thing dancing...

All pokemon should be able to use Tackle. That's probably the most basic physical attack ever.

All bipedal pokemon should be able to use basic fighting-type moves.
 

Annihilator

Everyone's Watching
Tentacruel can't learn flash despite his pokedex entry:
It alerts others to danger by stridently flashing the red orbs on its head.
Also, Abra's pokedex entry:
Using its ability to read minds, it will sense impending danger and teleport to safety.
He can't even learn mind reader. -_-

-Flareon with Flareblitz, it just needs it...
-Espeon should be able to Hypnosis, it can learn Dream eater but cant really use it unless you have yawn but it still takes a while to work
-Eevee should learn reflect.... again
-Umbreon should learn crunch and shadow sneak(it would make him attack first)
-Mightyena should learn crunch as well
