I believe they could battle via Stadium 2, but I'm probably wrong here.
Gyrados cant produce electricity. Where did that even come from?
it learns thunderbolt.
You know how water is used to produce electricity in turbines? Maybe gyarados uses the same principle somehow. Or as water is a good conductor of electricity gyrados finds a source of electricity (its a water/flying type it can go to the sky and back though it doesnt learn fly) and used water to conduct it to the foe?
So i was looking through the movepools of a few lesser seen Pokemon out of curiosity and noticed something that really stood out as unusual.
Spinarak and Ariados can learn Psychic
This didn't seem too strange at first, as there are many non Psychic-type Pokemon that can learn the move via TM, but this is different. These two can actually learn Psychic by level up, and afaik are the only two non Psychic-type Pokemon to do so aside from Gorebyss iirc.
So does anyone have an explanation for this? It seems pretty odd to me that a pair of Bug/Poison spiders would be capable of using Telekinesis, especially without human help in the form of a TM >_>.
You've got Venonat and Venomoth too (Yellow Koga and his team of Psychic Venonats FTW). Other bugs that learn Psychic naturally include Wormadam and Mothim, and Butterfree and Dustox learn Confusion naturally, a weaker equivalent (yeah they have similar animations in gen3, go figure \o/)
because people are arachnophobic
and there's no real reason for them to be so because real spiders aren't like aragog
SO CLEARLY MIND CONTROL
Remoraid's movepool has some strange moves in it, like Fire Blast, Incinerate, and Psychic...
And bullet seed... and charge beam!!!
It's to do with how they are based on guns and cannons, so they learn all kinds of stuff.
I still don't understand how Mudkip can learn Low Kick. I mean, other quadrupedal (and even non-quadrupedal) creatures with much more able legs like Dialga, Zekrom, and others are unable to learn it, but it still can.
cuz mudkip is exceptional at ball-kicking
it's how it beat out all of the other pokes as a meme
Until Smugleaf. :P
Dugtrio used scratch !!!!.
Huge mons like Zekrom and Arceus unable to learn Superpower while small things like Swinub and Turtwig and Bidoof can. BIDOOF.
Never realized that. Isn't Superpower just a tutor move for final evo though?
Still, Gamefreak logic.
I don't see why Keldeo gets Icy Wind, not a very common move outside of actual Ice types, but misses out on Ice Beam, which every Water type and its mother gets.
To the people who have watched Cameron VS Ash, (I hope this is a good place to ask this) What happened was that Cameron and Ash battled and Cameron won with only a Lucario left and he then battled Vergil. The two trainers did not heal their pokemon before the battle so Verjil had more pokemon. If this was a rule in the Unova League, isnt it unfair? I mean that Cameron got a strong trainer to battle with and therefore only his Lucario remained, Verjil's opponent wasnt that strong so that gave Verjil an unfair advantage over Cameron as Verjil had more pokemon left.
the show actually just flashed to near the end of the battle. They had the traditional fight, but they just snipped the end to Lucario's last stand.
Ok, now that I'm done ROFLMAOing, Is this why Scraggies come preset with Low Kick? I love how it can also be bred to Torchic.
The concept of low blows has forever changed the way I look at early route fights.
You can Surf on your Rhyperior. that's right, that giant living rock with arm cavities that could run the risk of getting flooded is perfectly bouyant and capable of propelling itself through water.
Steelix's Attack. Doesn't even cross 300. Looks terrible and unfitting. Looking at him screams a 110 base (at least) Attack.
And why is Ambipom so strong? 100 base Attack, as strong as Tauros.
Wurmple's Base Atk: 45
Onix's Base Atk: 45
Yeah, logic we got here.
How about how Onix has base 70 speed. I wouldn't expect a giant snake of rocks to be that quick.
In both the anime and manga, they've shown Onix to be a rather quick tunneling snake/worm. They appear to be effective at running through their own caves and tunnels when chasing someone, so a fair speed stat like 70 has been well represented in other continuities.
Yes, thats not how the Anime's league works. It was a full 6 on 6 battle that Vergil won with 3 pokemon left.
I've never really understood how Grimer remains the same weight when it evolves into Muk. I mean. If your basic concept is being a pile of filth, and then when you evolve you don't at least manage to find some more filth to add to yourself... What's your life about? Just pulling an angrier face?
I would imagine it just slashes the enemy really really hard with its three noses, considering it learns Slash as well.
