    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Whoa, the Hoennian line also doesn't learn Quick Attack? Well, then...yeah, they should definitely learn it.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Yeah, I meant that when the opponent attacks, Obstagoon should use it as an opportunity to strike first with a surprise attack right after. After all, Taunt + Sucker Punch is a nice move combination that Obstagoon would probably use provided it could learn the priority move, albeit Obstagoon...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Why can't Obstagoon learn Sucker Punch? Pokémon.com says this: I know that last sentence highlights Obstruct, but it could very well apply to Sucker Punch as well, just with a different description. Considering Obstagoon's unspectacular speed stat of 95, it needs a priority move. The whole...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Exactly, but Dragapult doesn't have those Ghost moves. We wish it did. Dragapult needs buffs now because it was unnecessarily nerfed by the developers of SwSh. I was saying that GameFreak did not need to nerf it. So yes, what you're saying agrees with me, but I think you misunderstood a bit...

    Speaking of Garchomp, it doesn't get Dragon Dance. While I get that might be broken for Garchomp, it is still a disappointment.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    It's almost like GameFreak kept those moves from Dragapult on purpose. Sure, a pseudo-legendary is powerful, but not so powerful that it needs nerfs like that!

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Spirit Break is the signature move of Grimmsnarl. If I had to guess, GameFreak would probably give the move out to more Pokémon next generation, given its relatively generic description, but definitely not in The Crown Tundra or something during Generation 8.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    To be honest, a lot of seemingly odd move distributions are because of the move's Japanese name.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Throat Chop's original Japanese name is translated to "Hell Thrust", so that might be part of the reason. Maybe Bouffalant kicks the target with its hind legs.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Back to move conversation. Moonblast should be more accessible. Right now, it's only available via level-up and Egg Move. Even if its accessibility/availability weren't changed, at least give it to the Togepi line. Togetic and Togekiss are Fairy and Flying-type, and the moon is way up high in...

    I think he means "you would think so".

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Possibly. But then Aura Wheel's type would probably have to be something different, maybe from Electric to Steel and back? And what about Morpeko, then? I don't know. *Shrug*

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Anyone else have any opinion on these?

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Heck, I don't even think Mystical Fire or Fire Lash should have been distributed to other Pokémon, even though GameFreak (I think?) made that decision! Delphox and Heatmor feel forgotten. I feel slightly different about Leaf Blade. I'm fine with Leaf Blade being more widely distributed. What...

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Well, weirdly enough, kicking moves aren't classified as such. I don't think there's a programming tag on kicking moves that says that they are kicking moves. It is kinda strange, though. At least Hitmonlee can have Reckless, which powers up Jump Kick and High Jump Kick.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    And don't forget the elemental punches: Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, and Ice Punch.

    Moves that Pokemon should/should not be able to learn

    Shouldn't Haxorus be able to learn Iron Head and not Iron Tail? I don't see anything special about its tail, whereas its design places heavy emphasis on its unbreakable tusks! That alone is a reason why Haxorus should be able to learn Iron Head. However, it can't learn Iron Head. I find that weird.
