• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    After playing ORAS recently, I've come to the conclusion that Sceptile should learn Dragonbreath or Dragon Pulse through level-up. If not both, then at least one. Dual Chop doesn't do its massive Special Attack justice (in fact, Dragonbreath should replace it learning Dual Chop) and it has no...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Agreed. With its popularity surging once more due to USUM, I took a look at its movepool. It's horrible. Zorua can't even utilize its higher Special Attack stat naturally until level 57, with Zoroark even more so. Really Game Freak? Outside of Flamethrower, Hyper Voice, Grass Knot, and Hidden...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Oh, I'm fully aware of that. But as it stands, in Generation 7 it can still learn it. Which makes it a Pokemon able to use a move it technically should not be able to.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Just as strange as Shroomish being able to use Drain Punch & Focus Punch, Rhyhorn able to use Iron Tail, Gastly being able to use Ice, Thunder & Fire Punch, Beheeyem being able to use Steel Wing, Aron being able to use Iron Tail, the Nidorans being able to use Iron Tail, Goomy and Sliggoo being...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    I'm sure someone has said this already, but let's reiterate. Talonflame should learn Blaze Kick, given its Pokedex information, as well as Mega Kick and Double Kick through level up. I know these moves pale in comparison to its usual Flare Blitz and Brave Bird setup, but I'm a sucker for game...

    Timburr should know Wood Hammer. I mean, c'mon.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    As the "wizard" of the trio and having the versatility of move sets common to the Psychic type, Delphox should have a wider array of moves: Thunderbolt, Energy Ball, Dark Pulse, Hex, Thunder Wave, Flash Cannon, and Cosmic Power to name a few. Also retcon its ability into Magic Bounce or Magic...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Midnight Lycanroc should have gotten a signature move that fits in with its lore, as well as better abilities. Counter isn't enough and it has no niche unlike its daytime counterpart.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Fun fact, Pichu now gets Electric Terrain through breeding.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Greninja learns Shadow Sneak through leveling up.
