I suppose it'd just bring up the argument that you're better off teaching a different move with the shards, though.
...now that's news. I'll check it up.
EDIT: Confirmed. There is this old man at the Pokemon Centre who does give you 10 Red shards.
Well this means Volcarona gets a useful STAB move to abuse now. Definitely supporting High Tier
EDIT2: Jolteon doesn't get a better
move with the shards. The only other special move in there is loluproar and you aren't going to get anywhere with physical moves.
