Relicanth :
  • Aqua Ring
  • Clanging Scales (Huntail and Gorebyss should learn that when they evolve with Scale items, all pokemon that involve scales, steel feathers and natural exosceletons)
-Accel rock
-Ice shard(learns 2 ice moves already)
-First Impresion against grass types (weird but we have so many water/rock and water/ground pokemon that it wonders me why they don't get ice shard or something to hit grass actually)
-needs a healing move
___

We need a starter pokemon with Parting Shot.

Greninja could have got it but maybe Samurott, Chesnaught, Emboar?
Hmmm taking that Delphox is a witch/magician then maybe it should too?

uses it's gas and mystical energy to make it happen. Electric gas, cloud.
Imagine that it's gas forms a fist and don't negate it.

it's evolution Haunter like should learn all multi hit moves that hit twice or more a target with those flying fists of it, even Arm Thrust would make sense. Yes Double Hit was nice but Haunter with Arm Thrust would make sense taking anime episode Ash vs Morty where it used those fists.

Hmmm Skarmory should get a electric physical move
___

Scyther:

  • Dual Chop
  • Sacred Sword
  • Smart Strike
____
Orangurus signature move should be given to pokemon what have similar roles or look like they could instruct others with magic and charisma.
The Move Instruct:

Mr Mime
Vespiqueen(queen)
Delphox(wizard)
Jynx(power of voice? Psychic)
Empoleon(napoleon)
Primarina(sirene)
Bannete(puppet master, ghost and wires)
Slowking(king, him I would give Kings shield)
Wobbufet
Dusclops(with fear)
Farfetched(charisma)
Machamp(fitness instructor)

If you can learn Focus Blast, you should be able to learn Aura Sphere.

If you can learn Bulldoze, you should be able to learn Earthquake.

Focus and aura? Not always. Bulldoze and eartquake? Depends how heavy and strong?

Used to be a useful move for Gengar back in the days before the physical/special split, now is a relic of a meta long past. Also the reason why Alakazam has these moves.
Gengar was capable of learning Thunder as early as Gen 1, though-it didn't really need it. (Plus, they could have just had Gengar learn it and keep it off Ghastly)

Ice Punch and Fire Punch did provide coverage for Gengar though, and it would be weird if it had those but not the other Punch

I'm gonna be really upset if the Scorbunny line can't learn Blaze Kick.

There are some Pokémon that learn Explosion that kind of bothers me. This list includes:
  • Lickilicky: Uh, why is tonguezilla able to go kablooey? I don't like the prospect of this at all!
  • Garbodor: I don't want trash on the walls.
  • Vanilluxe: How... It seems oddly cruel for something as fragile as an ice type to literally explode
  • Skuntank: Again, why. Exploding the stench to the point of self-fainting seems to not be a trait of a skunk

Seeing how they can also learn Flamethrower and Fire Blast, I guess whatever causes the stench is also highly flammable.

...I guess living around one may be worse than I thought at first.

I think Normal types get a little too much leeway with TMs. Here's a fun little list:

  • Raticate
  • Furret
  • Tauros
  • Dunsparce
  • Linoone
  • Slakoth
  • Delcatty
  • Lopunny

Any guess on what they all have in common?

They can all learn Blizzard and Thunder by TM.
