I have a suggestion to add on the part where Nintendo is trolling us... the more obvious ones being Flareon not getting Flare Blitz and the Quiet Heatran with Eruption...
Here is a less blatant example. Ninetales. Surely something with the ability to curse people for 1000 years must be a Ghost type? She can even learn Grudge for the love of God. And she must have incredible power (Special Attack) to do that, yet she has only a base 81 Special Attack. Imagine Ninetales being Fire/Ghost, she would certainly be able to change Infernape movesets, considering the Infernape can't touch her with either STAB attack, and Grass Knot does pitiful damage, hell, he would be forced to use Stone Edge or Earthquake. And Ninetales BST is 505, while the most used Pokemon in OU, Scizor has only 500. It's because Ninetales has extra stats in place where her wouldn't make it any better, like a base 75 defense isn't going make her take an Earthquake any better than a Houndoom with base 50 defense >_>
More insulting is though, her counterpart Arcanine has a BST of 560, 55 points higher than hers.
