In addition to what @FinnishPokéFan92 said, the explosion is a fire one. Fire spreads, and Torterra's literally covered in flammable grass. Torterra will have a very hard time using the move.
ok then what about casting fire outside of it? or coming from the ground?
if it would only come from the tip of its rock on back and change into a beam or point rage explosion , some ecplosion have point range, and dont need to burn or hurt the user.

Like I said before, you seem to just try making up excuses to support your idea. I'm sorry if I sound rude by saying this, but your excuses this time make even less sense than the ones before.

While that design idea sounds cool, we already have Drifloon and Drifblim, and that Ability sounds kinda weird and better suited for some other type combination.

that we have ballons is ok, but some more ghost/flying then oricorio and them would be good .
what other type combination?(flying isnt only air but also contact moves)

Um, this is technically still the learnset thread. Maybe there's a relevant thread somewhere in the section for your ideas, or you could create one.

Why does Togetic get Smart Strike over Pokémon who could feasibly use it, such as, I dunno, Forretress?

I suppose Smart Strike could be useful for unorthodox Hustle Togekiss, because it never misses, but that begs the question as to why Togetic can learn it but Togekiss can't.

Also, Forretress' turrets don't look too sharp.

Fair enough. I just thought they could be used somehow, like giving Forretress Megahorn? Still kinda preposterous, but I can see it happening.

Also, I think it would need a base power buff to be useful, but it would be funny to give Water Shuriken to Cloyster.

I'm guessing because it and Togekiss technically have the horns necessary to use it, although the fact that Togekiss's horns are pointing backwards makes it kinda awkward for it...

...Nah. Let's just throw that last one into the same pile as Togekiss's Focus Punch: sometimes an evolved Pokémon may know moves that make more sense when known by its pre-evolved form.

Scizor should be able to learn Guillotine.
Yveltal should be able to learn Nightmare.
Rapidash should be able to learn Blaze Kick.
Magearna and Vikavolt should be able to learn Lock-On.
Espurr, Meowstic and the Abra line should be able to learn Mind Reader.

Also Aurora Veil. Silly Game Freak.
I would give it also to Empoleon and other pokemon to make it fun in use, becuse if one pokemon fainst a other can pick it up.

Delphox --> Imprison (+ buff the move; make it disable the moves of the same type as the users moves )

_________________________________________________________________________________

Gumshoos with Dragon Tail and Volt Switch could work well to make Stake Out even work better.
Why didnt they give it Dragon Tail is a mystery to me, maybe becuse its not a lizard?but Sammuotr got it...

maybe it may get a similar move next generation? But they could have given it Circle Throw atleast?

maybe a buff to Stake Out ability:
current: doubles the power of moves used against targets that have switched in this turn.
buffed: doubles the power of moves used against targets that have switched in this turn or if the user switches in and out in the same turn.(U-turn- double power power- yeah) )

People forget that Gumshoos new ability and Golisopod make an interesting pair, after a buff to stake out this would be even more interesting.

Only thing I can think of off the top of my head is Dynamic Punch for No Guard Lycanroc. Midnight got the shaft of -30 Spe and got +10 in HP, Def and Sp. Def, and being a Rock he isn't gonna be surviving too many attacks anyway, so he definitely deserves more perks. Dynamic Punch was definitely a move tutor thing, too, so I'm disappointed he can't learn it.
