    On 5th gen move pages (and likely some 4th gen pages too), pokemon that learn moves in past generations but not in that generation aren't listed on the page. This mainly applies to old TMs and move tutors that weren't kept, but there are some important ones like Stealth Rock and Superpower. This makes it cumbersome to find a list of pokemon that learn Stealth Rock for example, when the page is missing some of its main users like Heatran and Bronzong.

    Since this is mainly a competitive site, it shouldn't matter where the move came from unless there are legality issues, which should be covered in the analysis, or for Wi-fi people, who probably should check a different source to learn where all the moves come from before making their pokemon. If there is some reason I'm unaware of that this hasn't been put into place, then a second table below the main one labeled something like "Past-Generation Learners" would suffice.

    This isn't a top priority, I just think it would be useful if someone had the time.
