Kecleon can learn Camouflage as of OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire. It was very dumb that it took them that long, though.
now we need to wait for sobble line with it, then a fast change of type with terrain
and it could get interesting with misty terrain and a dragon immunity there.

If only it could interact with terrain and weather at the same time and make user a dual type pokemon too.... somehow...

hmm Falinks with Arm thrust, Barrage, pin missile, spike canon???? beat up is cool but only one multistrike move??? come on

Pyukumuku- aqua ring, aqua jet, water gun, flip turn sucker punch to not waste that good physical stats it has...
pinchuring has better moves then it.

Shedinja learning in future U-turn or Partying shot? First Impression? Taking how many new moves and fast pokemon we got now?

To this day I'm still surprised that Heracross can't learn any other Bug moves outside of Megahorn and Pin Missile. Why is that? At least let it have something like U-Turn, especially since it no longer has a Mega to abuse in Gen 8, thus the multi-hit moves its Mega used are less reliable. U-Turn would be really good for Heracross, especially since it's a good momentum tool (and great for getting out of bad matchups while chipping your opponent in the process). Or at least give it X-Scissor so it has a decent 100% accuracy Bug move, since Megahorn's shaky accuracy can be a deterrent at times. I mean, really, giving a Mon only one or two moves that match its type (outside of ones like Magikarp and early bugs/cocoons) is pretty bad, especially if those moves are learned at later levels.

even if mega returns in remake 4 generation or next generations it should get that option taking that bUg is one of the weakest types.
especially fighting/bug

Shuckle(total stats 505) , Shedinja(236) and Heracros(500) should get all U-turn taking that something like Dragapult got it...

Shuckle could get a Scout role to take a hit and run or use one toxic/torment/infestation/entry hazard now and one later, with Gluttony would work quite well and if oponent chose self to switch out in that turn it's out you get a fresh start. Especially if trick room ends or you would get Power trick on working and need back up for later... taking it has steel roller and can destroy terrains means it could become even more if it gets U-turn.

Shedinja the same, when you want it to have for later and dont want to waste a turn or you feel your oponent is gonna switch on the same turn?
it has already hard with so many fast pokemon and a chance that they learn a dark, ghost, fire, flying or rock moves to take it out.


the same with Flip Turn... Samuotrr, Feraligatr, Empoleon, taking Blastoise got it... come on... Swampert is a swimmer...Carracosta, Alomomola?
Corsola, Slowbro line?

Interesting that no pokemon with Regenerator abiliity got Flip Turn... only Mienshao with U-turn...
partying shot also isn't learned by any pokemon with Regenerator?

I would suggest Eldegos , Reuniclus, Tangrowth , Slowking for Partying Shot...

Reuniclus and Galarian Slowbro for Volt Switch... cells and energy,

Destiny Bond: Decidueye( ghost type and its speed), Polteageist
