    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Checked it and Matleo's right, Oshawott can get it through breeding with Skitty or Spinda. Not sure if all starters should get it, but I do wonder why only Oshawott can get it... I see the other mons that learn it are either baby mons or other cute ones, or they have something to do with...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Do Swinub or Wooper look heavy enough to make one? :P I get the complaint, as a lot of Rock-types learn Earthquake so I had expected it too. But I don't mind that much as it also learns
