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

    red2000 Liger Zero!!!

    I dont know if anyones noticed but Excadrill cant learn Stone Edge wtf? and Steelix should learn Heavy Bomber

    side note: If Slowking and Octillery can learn Flamethrower, then Emboar should be allowed to learn Scald
  2. Missingno. Master

    Missingno. Master Poison-type Trainer

    You mean Heavy Slam, right? Onix gets that as an egg move.

    I think the majority of pokemon should be able to learn surf since most have the capability to swim, some may not like water, but that does not mean they can't at least doggy paddle. As far as summoning a giant wave to swamp the field, the jury is still out, but at least give them a chance to try.
  4. Charoshi

    Charoshi Charmander is best

    Sure most of them can probably swim, but it doesn't mean they are all adept to swimming long distance, which is what surf really is. (Well technically, it's surfing, but whatever.)
  5. WeatherEffectRain

    WeatherEffectRain Arm Wrestle?

    Octillery is based on a Turret/Tank(Or the like. Oktutank in Japanese.), it's not a good example. Emboar can learn Scald because of the fact that Tepig 'Likes to cook'. Thus, Emboar, being a Wrestler that likes to cook for it's friends, can learn Scald.

    EDIT: Although I ask for any distaste against Rhydon learning Surf. As well as Nidoking. Both hate the water, both don't look like they could swim well, and Nidoking has those spikes. Exploud also learns Surf. Go look it up on Serebii.

    Lobsters/ crayfish are also known as "dragon shrimp" in China (and maybe Japan) so that might explain how crawdaunt gets it...

    Jolteon could have been the best electro ball user ever, especially with its dw quick feet ability.

    Escavalier =/= ESpeed

    Pidgeot =/= ESpeed

    Garchomp =/= ESpeed

    Read they're various Dexes.

    I think every Dragon should be learning Outrage by level up.

    cookies kill you Like a boss

    flareon should learn flare blitz

    Typhlosion should learn Discharge.

    Wait what? Lapras has Dragon Dance, which is half the fun with no drawback. She's much speedier, anyway.

    And WTF Gardevoir getting Spacial Rend? Celebi getting Roar of Time makes sense in a small way, but would be...weird.

    Haha Dunsparce with Horn Drill, and Eevee with Growth. What's the point, when it gets Work Up?

    Bottom line, OHKO moves are rare, and with good reason. If everyone had them, they'd cease to be awesome. Why do you think the TM for Fissure vanished like it did?

    Emboar get's Scad because-

    Watch a cartoon with a bull, that hot steam they shoot out of their nostrils when ticked off.

    Or a better example is that Spongebob Episode where Squidward travels back in time. Prehistoric Patrick's breathing in Squidward's face is the same concept.

    Now why Bull pokemon don't get idk.

    a few concerns here:

    volcarona can't really use sacred fire considering it's a special attacker

    ninjask isn't reptilian in any way so dragon claw doesn't make sense (or else weavile and zangoose should hav it too)

    drapion isn't light or airy or elegant or graceful so quiver dance isn't for it...also, it's not a special attacker..

    Unfezant already gets Steel Wing by breeding. There is no roost TM and Mandibuzz already gets roost by breeding. There are many things wrong with your wants like common pokemon getting legendary Pokemon's moves.

    shiniesrock right now


    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.
