Healing Pokémon use Toxic for stalling.
I know its compeitive usage, but it doesn’t make logical sense for a healing Pokemon to poison people and Pokemon. They’ve adapted to have antidotes for poisons, not the poisons themselves.Healing Pokémon use Toxic for stalling.
Toxic was a technique that dates back 400 years according to Koga. It isn't even till Gen III that any Pokemon learn it naturally. So out of all TMs it seems the most like a learned technique rather than a move, so I think the wide distribution makes sense? Not to mention that (parts of) an antidote often can be poisonous, it's just that the way they work neutralises or halts the working of the original toxin, so any healing Pokemon could definitely create toxins as wellI know its compeitive usage, but it doesn’t make logical sense for a healing Pokemon to poison people and Pokemon.

Toxic has an unnecessarily large distribution, which doesn’t make sense when it comes to some Pokemon being able to learn toxic.
Sucker Punch isn't a punch (it's "Surprise Attack" in Japanese), but yeah it does fit Incineroar. Also, why can't he learn Beat Up?So... GameFreak is telling me three half-submerged moles, a rock that pretends to be a tree, a bug which created cloaks from various substances, a ghost owl and freaking psychic cats can learn how to use sucker punch- an unfair attack but not a literal heel wrestler whose entire job is to attack unfairly?
And of all things Snubbul and Meloetta can learn close combat but not Incineroar with bulging muscles?
If you know the move is intended to be a surprise attack (and not a literal punch) then what's strange about them? Dugtrio could burst out of the ground anywhere, Sudowoodo blends in with trees, Wormadam camouflage themselves and Decidueye is a stealthy treetops archer.I mean, compared to Incineroar they seem strange choices
Google Technomancy mate.magic... do you want to make me mad or to see if I will explode?
Real life magicians also use real magnets for their magic tricks...
But if something has magical powers and we donthave any other move like magnet rise that allows user to levitate for 5 turns with the same effect why not give it that?
It seems to correspond more to Head Smash than Iron head imo...Pokedex entries love reminding us that its face is hard enough to break rocks, which you would think it would be able to do so without any human intervention.
I always just guessed it was because snowflakes are pretty or something. I mean, they do give it to Mew just for the reason that it gets to learn all TMs.Here's another strange one, Cryogonal can learn Attract even though it can never successfully use that move. What's even more strange is that they still didn't take that move out of its movepool.
Dusknoir is also missing Phantom Force. I'm surprised it didn't get it in ORAS when they must have gone over the Hoenn Pokemon's move lists.The Dusknoir evolution line should be able to learn Hypnosis. They are all able to learn Dream Eater by TM, so it would make sense for them to learn a sleep-inducing move to take advantage of it. On top of that, Dusclops' Sapphire Pokédex entry even reads as follows: "This Pokémon hypnotizes its foe by waving its hands in a macabre manner and by bringing its single eye to bear. The hypnotized foe is made to do Dusclops's bidding." How come Ponyta and Rapidash can get Hypnosis, but not Dusclops and its evolutions?
