On Ribombee's case, I think there's an explanation: beefly larvae are parasites so maybe that's why it can learn absorb.I'm kind of confused by what's going on with Absorb. Like, at first, it seems like the idea is Grass-types, bats (because they suck blood), and bugs that suck blood. But then there's the Kabuto line, and I didn't see anything about trilobites drinking blood or acting as parasites or anything like that. (Or, specifically, Wikipedia said it was being debated as to whether they were parasites or not, so it doesn't seem like that's heavily associated with them) We've got a bee like Ribombee getting it, but not Beedrill or Combee, and a moth like Volcarona, but not Venomoth, so I don't know what's going on with the bugs? And why do Celesteela and Goomy learn it?
