If we’re strictly going for design and concept, Doublade should learn Guillotine. Though considering No Guard, I get why it doesn’t.
Just realised we got a France based region and not a single pokemon introduced there knows Guillotine
I’m pretty fine with big and heavy pokemon managing to make the ground crack, but why the hell let featherweight critters do that.
Glalie and Sharpedo don’t even have the body structures to touch the ground (unless you count that floor headbutt from the Hoenn League...)
Perharps, but this is a pokemon with two of the three starter types that are known to heavily oppose each other, which makes it odd for it to learn fire attacks.
You could argue that Volcanion is the same because it’s a fire/water type that learns Solar Beam, but at least fire has an...
