what about a Tortunator with Draining Kiss? (it has the mouth to do it)(against dragons, fighting,dark)
That would seperate it more from other fire/dragon pokemon and the rest of the dragons.
Maybe even it could get Giga Drain?(against water,rock and ground weakness)

- Alolan Golem learning Flame Wheel and Heat Crash anyone?
if it traps steel types with Magnet Pull (especially those with Levitate)?

Pikachu should learn Volt Tackle by leveling up to save us the trouble of raising one from an egg.
Adding on to your post, even Raichu should get it by level up, so that the move is accessible to all the members of Pikachu line easily.

EDIT: Also, Pichu and Raichu should be able to use Light ball.

I'd give it Electric Terrain, if only for that new ability.

Heliolisk totally needs Sunny Day and Solar Beam if you ask me. I want to like that Pokémon but those really are some unmistakable holes.
Fun fact, Pichu now gets Electric Terrain through breeding.

I'm a little p'd off that Lycanroc doesn't get Earthquake. I like my rock types to have decent ground coverage too, generally :/
does it look heavy enough to make one? ;)
If all pokemon would have all moves it would'nt be so much fun.

Do Swinub or Wooper look heavy enough to make one? :p

I get the complaint, as a lot of Rock-types learn Earthquake so I had expected it too. But I don't mind that much as it also learns
Bite, Crunch and Brick Break, so it still has some variety. And I have Mudbray for Earthquake ;)

Serperior: First Impression, Baneful Bunker, Purify (also for Venusaur and maybe Meganium posibble candidates, would be better then Protect)???

Chesanaught: Draco Hammer, First Impression?

Accel Rock, Thousand Waves with Torterra?

Beak Blast with Empoleon?

Delphox Psychic Terrain, Psych fang, Speed Swap.

Meganium Pollen Puff

No but they are Ground Type...unlike Rockruff who is pure Rock and yeah...he's pretty light as oppose to Regirock.

Pokémon that are Rock and don't have Ground as second type, but still learn Earthquake:

Aerodactyl, Sudowoodo, Shuckle, Magcargo, Corsola, Aron line, Nosepass, Lunatone, Solrock, Cradily, Armaldo, Relicanth, Regirock, Cranidos, Rampardos, Shieldon, Bastiodon, Probopass, Roggenrola line, Dwebble, Crustle, Tirtouge, Caracosta, Archen, Archeops, Terrakion, Binacle, Barbaracle, Tyrunt, Tyrantrum, and Aurorus.

Sudowoodo, Nosepass, Cranidos, and Rampardos are also pure Rock.

Shuckle is 5kg lighter than Lycanroc, Roggenrola 7kg lighter, Dwebble 10.5kg lighter, Archen 15.5kg lighter and Corsola is only 5kg.

Your arguments are invalid :p

when will Chesanuaght get Sucker Punch? after we got so many ghost pokemon it should also be allowed to get it.

or Emboar or Chesanaught with Slack Off?
Infernape gets it.

Why do Incineroar(dark), Emboar(fighting) and Torturnator(dragon) not got Burn Up?

More pokes with secondary would have needet this.
Only Typhlosion line , Moltres and Arcanine line got it ?

Accel Rock with Tyrantrum anyone?

Would it be bad if Chesnaught or Emboar would gain acces to Bullet Punch?

Primarina without any fighting moves? where is Arm Thrust?

Decidueye, would Hipnosis, Grass Whistle and Dream Eater be too much?

Primarina also lacks of draining moves, Leech Life, Dream Eater? or something in that kind?

I don't think Primarina needs (or looks like it would learn) any draining moves. I could see Primarina with draining kiss, though.

WishiWashi would need the move Torment or they could make Psychic Terrain or a new move have also the same effect but like a Room or Terrain that it works 5 turns on all oponents pokemon not only the one choosen.

(not many starters got it Serperior, Incineroar, Infernape, pokemon like Delphox,Emboar or Chesanught would need something like this)

Torterra : Ancient Power , Fissure ,Anchor Shot , Baneful Bunker, Stomping Tantrum, Strenght Sap.

Tank=Moving Bunker.

Anchor Shot (Steel) looks like Klefki, Empoleon, Samurott (Smart Strike and Iron Tail??? Anchor is more sea based) should have it too.
_________________________________________________________

Slakoth should get Comatose. (only He from his evolution line, would make more sense then Truant)

Slakoth Total BST: 280

Komala: Total BST: 480

Komala would need Draco Hammer and Slack Off.

___________________________________________
Steel Worker ability with Conkeldurr line? instead of Guts?
but would need to know more steel type moves and Anchor Shot.(it learns none steel type moves)
Or maybe this ability with Chesanaught or Machamp?
