Primeape can learn Iron Tail.
Let's just let that sink in for a bit.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!
Well that's surprising. Still, does it tackle the ground or something to create an Earthquake because looking at its body shape I can't see any other way of it making the ground shake xD
Probopass getting the Elemental Punches is just the side effect of Nosepass having arms and then losing them upon evolution like Primeape.
What of Snorlax's amazing move pool? I know he is a normal type, but really?
Solarbeam: How would something like Snorlax absorb sunlight?
Flamethrower: Did it eat something really bad...?
Psychic: Snorlax must have more brain activity than it demonstrates
Surf: I guess he just floats on the water with all of his buoyancy?
Ice Beam/Blizzard: Does not compute...
Aerial Ace only seems like an oddity on mons because nobody actually realises what its supposed to be. Digglett can use Aerial Ace? How?
Because its Japanese name translates Swallow Return, a reference to some Japanese sword thing. Its "a technique involving striking downward from above and then instantly striking again in an upward motion from below". So the reason so many random things learn it is because it's not a flight thing but a swordsmanship thing. That's why Sandslash and Parasect can learn it, for example. Not that it's limited to Pokemon with claws or blades, but you get the idea.
Of course, Game Freak have taken the "Swallow" in its name semi-literally, making it a Flying-Type move and having lots of birds learn it by level up. So I guess its kind of both things for Pokemon.
As for Golurk (if that is indeed who you meant), I guess they just decided he's too "punchy" for Aerial Ace. Not many Fighting Types do either, unless they have something sharp to work with. Primeape kind of stands out as an exception but whatever.
So yeah, if anyone was wondering, that's Aerial Ace mostly explained. When I found that out I made an audible "ohhhh" of realisation.
I think donphan beeing able to have ice shard is pretty wierd.
its animation makes so much sense now
Some of the wierdest moves IMO are weather summoning moves. I mean how exactly can pokemon make the weather with sunny day or make it rain with rain dance. And the distribution of these moves is tremendous. Pokemon have to have mythical powers in order to do that.
Seismitoad can learn Icy Wind and Ice Punch but not Ice Beam or Blizzard. This confuses me so much. Same for Keldeo who gets Icy Wind but not Ice Beam or Blizzard.
I just found out Hariyama gets Whirlwind, but not Circle Throw...
How good would the combination of those moves have been on the RestTalk set?!
EDIT: And Munchlax gets FLY?!
Whoa whoa whoa whoa back the fuck up
Where, how and when did Munchlax learn Fly? Because if this is true, NOTHING will stop me from getting a Munchlax with Fly.
I checked and no ... ?
According to Veekun, Munch does not learn Fly. Maybe you meant another Pokemon?
I think it was intentional.
Gen 4 had some absolutely ridiculous movepools, with things like Lucario, Infernape, Rampardos, Dialga and Palkia learning high-powered moves of 10+ types, as well as oddities like Stealth Rock being given to Bibarel and Azelf.
Gen 5 mons have noticeably smaller movepools, even the legendaries. To compensate GF gave most of them absurd attacking stats instead.
I might have been mistaken. Sorry for getting your hopes up, people!
It would be awesome if he did. But how? A mega-"gas," a la Wario in Super Smash Bros Brawl?
Anyway, I never knew the Aerial Ace thing. Maybe Dugtrio has hidden claws?
Did anybody mention that Aggrons can learn Water Pulse? I think it's a kind of funny choice for coverage.
Kingler gets the Egg move Tickle. I'll just leave it at that.
You have ruined my hopes and dreams of flying around Unova on a Snorlax.
THERE IS NO SORRY
Ditto. (not the Pokemon.)
Snorlax: the next Magic Carpet.
Coming to block routes near you.
Aggron's movepool is quite large, one of the largest if I recall correctly...
In fact most of those with Rhydon like physiques tend to have plenty of moves to choose from I think. Rhydon, Nidoking/queen, Aggron, Kangaskhan...
