    Nope. I overleveled my Cyndaquil because I didn't like Quilava, and got a Burn on the first Ember.

    Psychic type: Extrasensory. It had almost all the power of Psychic(80 compared to 90) but also a hefty amount of PP
    Electric type: Shock Wave. Sure it isn't as flashy as Thunderbolt, but it is always accurate
    Grass and Bug type: Giga Drain and Leech Life. I appreciate any move that can both heal and cause a lot of damage. And nowadays they are quite effective
    Ghost type: Shadow Ball. Simple, but effective
