I mean come on, it can't. Wynaut. Well, wynaut I suppose! Delibird... yeah... Cleffa actually learns it by level up! I don't know how sunkern bounces, but the biggest offender of them all...
That is just wrong on so many levels.
"Wailmer can store water inside its body to transform itself into a ball for bouncing on the ground
. By filling itself up with more water, this Pokémon can elevate the height of its bounces." [Sapphire Dex entry]
Also why it learns Bounce.
