Which is why I listed the other examples, as they may make a bit more sense. For example, a Purugly may be able to cause sleep via Hypnosis, but not by Spore because it doesn't have any. Or Pokemon being able to cause paralysis by Thunder Wave, but not Stun Spore for the same reasons; not all Pokemon can use/create spores/pollen. It's more about the manner in which they can do so, rather than the fact that they have said power, like you mentioned.Eh, I feel that if they're able to confuse something it shouldn't really matter what the move is called/what manner they do it in, because they have the power to cause the desired effect anyways. But I understand why they have it, it would just be nice to have a simpler array of moves.
It's the fact that some of these moves, though, are worse than others that make people think there may be too many.
