    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    I wish I could say that it may have something to do with its Japanese name which more specifically refers to Iaido cut techniques.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Probably because its Japanese name is Sweep Slap, and it hints more towards a sweeping motion than that of an actual slap. Name changes in localization always tends to make things confusing.

    I'm obviously late to be commenting on this, but it absolutely boggles my mind whenever people say "Oh Doduo/Dodrio shouldn't learn Fly or wing-based attacks, they have no wings!". Yet Pokemon Yellow's Pokedex mentions that Doduo does in fact have short wings, which I imagine is hidden beneath...
