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

    This x 100000

    Bulletproof Self explanatory.

    Rhino's wade in mud or water. Dogs can dog paddle. Polarbears swim.
    Missed one.

    Seismitoad can't learn Ice Beam.

    Probally to avoid the scarring image of the Ice Beam coming out of it's Eye warts, when they star jiggleing...~
  5. Mrs Mime

    Mrs Mime a little haphazard

    Tail Glow and Mareep/Charmander line makes sense, but Tail Glow is something like Firefly Light in Japan so then it wouldn't make sense.

    I'd say top winner was between Lunatone: Moonlight / Solrock: Morning Sun. What they are is even in these move names.
  6. Heavenly Mikaru

    Heavenly Mikaru EX and WHY are hot!

    Which is weird that only Volbeat gets it but Illumise doesn't :/
  7. Only male fireflies glow.

    Sentret should get tail slap/whip considering its tail is the same size as its body.
    I don't think Bidoof gets bite, and considering its a beaver, thats very strange.
    Squirtle line, Pupitar, and Shelgon don't get shell smash, wth? Its even in shelgon's name.

    You just wanna fly on an Emolga smh homie.

    Does Galvantula learn Spider Web?
  10. MetalFlygon08

    through Breeding iirc.
  11. Mrs Mime

    Mrs Mime a little haphazard

    But if they got it, that would mean Tyranitar and Salamence could also have Shell Smash. No sense! However Squirtle line should get it, but I suppose they never give Pokemon every kind of suitable move to make things more interesting or keep power in reasonable check as Blastoise is already pretty strong?
  12. Flare Blitz wouldn't stop Flareon from being a bad Pokémon competitively.

    not really...the females glow too, it's the specific glow pattern that the male recognizes to find the female because the truth is, the females can't fly so illumise was a mistake to begin with just like how female sawsbuck have antlers

    so do elephants and hippos (heck they can swim) but you don't see any surfing donphans or hippowdons...heck krookodile can't even learn it...I guess you can argue that it's because they are ground types and ground types are...Oh wait, rhydon and nidoking are also ground types...

    zoroua and zoroark should be able to learn transform. its pretty self explanatory.

    So? Gorebyss and Huntail get it despite also not having a shell.

    Cloyster says hi. A moveset without shell smash is still very powerful and effective. If you are trying to say blastoise with shell smash would be broken that is wrong.

    That would ruin the point of their abilities.

    Actually, there is a way to make Flareon learn Flare Blitz. It's possible, but it's a glitch. I've tried it on an emulator.
    Things you will need:
    - Eevee with Mimic (Move Tutor in FR/LG (Mimic Girl in Saffron City after you give her a PokeDoll))
    - Ditto
    - Charizard with Rage and Flare Blitz (Rage is a level up move in R/S/E learned at level 20 so make sure your Charizard is one from one of these generations and is lower than level 66 so it gets Flare Blitz on level up.)

    1) Pal Park Eevee and Charizard to HG/SS
    2) Get into a battle with a Double NPC (there are Twins Kay & Tia on Route 15 (Kanto) from 8pm-5am on Saturday)
    3) Send out Eevee and Ditto
    4) Have Ditto use Transform, then make Eevee use Mimic on Ditto
    5) Switch out Ditto with Charizard, have Eevee use Transform on Charizard
    6) Have Eevee use Rage (make sure its rage builds)
    7) Once it builds once, you can finish the battle
    8) Exit battle, check moves, evolve Eevee

    Aaaaand there you go. Enjoy your Flare Blitz Flareon.

    Krookodile should get Dragon Dance.

    I mean, WTF? He learns Outrage via level up, and he looks draconic (a little bit).
