    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Kartana is a katana, and also an Ultra Beast, so there's some weirdness going on with iy. Virizion and Cobalion, meanwhile, are explicitly based on specific famous fictional swordsmen.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Manaphy is based on the sea angel, which is an animal with an eerie internal glow which is similar to a firefly's (it's also a legendary, so normal rules don't necessarily apply). Xurkitree is a weird alien from another dimension so, again, normal rules don't apply.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Ampharos doesn't learn Tail Glow because the Japanese name is Firefly Light (which is why it's a Bug move). Gallade's arm blades I don't think qualify it to learn Sacred Sword in the same way that Being A Sword does for, say, Aegislash. What is ridiculous is how Drowzee and Hypno couldn't learn...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Honestly, Yveltal should have been pure Dark or Ghost, wings or not. Xerneas being pure Fairy makes sense - it shouldn't be Ground because it's not a guardian of or representative of the Earth - that's Zygarde - but of life itself.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    It's a slashing move, and Diglett and Dugtrio do have claws even if we can't see them (also explaining their ability to learn Scratch and Slash).
