    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    It makes slightly more sense when you remember the Japanese name is simply "Clear Sky", and makes no explicit mention of the sun.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    I'm gonna be the voice of cynicism here, but since when has Game Freak ever given a damn about a Pokemon's competitive capabilities when handling stuff like that? If they cared about Pokemon being good and well balanced then half of our complaints in this thread would be answered.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Personally I think a different move with the same effect would work better conceptually. Plus GF hasn't been shy about having different moves or abilities that do basically the same thing. White Smoke/Clear Body/Full Metal Body, Shadow Shield/Multiscale, Sharpen/Howl, Defence Curl/Harden, the 4...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Aerial Ace doesn't actually involve flight though, it's actually supposed to be a slashing attack. Fly really should get to more Pokemon though.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Monkeys are smart, so they've learned to tie knots in the grass?

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Escavalier needs Gyro Ball. I mean seriously, it's Steel Type, and has 20 base speed. A Gyro Ball from that thing would hurt, and it not having access to it is a crime.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Those Pokemon are on a completely different scale of power (lore wise) from Marshadow though. That's like asking why a Charizard can't use Sacred Fire, or why a Pikachu can't use Bolt Strike. Of course these moves are good, they're Legendary signatures, they have such powerful moves to set them...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    It's not weird at all. Marshadow is a Mythical Pokemon. It doesn't make any sense for any kind of Pokemon (aside from something that's super similar to Marshadow conceptually) to get that move. That's like giving other random Pokemon access to Roar of Time, or V-Create, or Fusion Bolt, or...

    I can get Delphox, but why Primarina?

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    A Pokemon who takes no damage can't activate Mirror Coat or Counter because it's based on the damage the user took. A Pokemon with high defence will deal less damage with those moves because they don't take much. A Pokemon who takes no damage due to an immunity will counter for 0 damage, because...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    No, perish means "to die, especially in a sudden or violent way". Nothing there inherently ties it to curses. The move is literally "Sudden Death Song". It has no relation to magic or curses, and is an entirely sound based move. It only makes sense for sound based Pokemon, particularly Pokemon...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Terrible. Lucario has worse Sp. Atk, and its Special movepool is much better. By level up: Night Daze. At level 57/64! That is all. Other methods can give Shadow Ball (redundant thanks to Night Daze), Flamethrower, Hidden Power, Hyper Voice, Grass Knot, Extrasensory by breeding with two/three...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Well, you just said Which perfectly describes Dazzling Gleam, and I just wasn't sure if you were aware of that. Honestly though, I wouldn't be against Zoroark getting either or both of those moves. It desperately needs something.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    You mean Dazzling Gleam? I fail to see how that would overpower it.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    *Insert obligatory comment on Pokemon with no arms using punching moves* I don't really care which ones it gets, but Zoroark needs more good Special Moves. I mean really, Aura Sphere, Energy Ball, Air Slash. Just something to make its selection better. Same with Luxray, but that thing needs the...
