They don't put in counter features because that crap is ridiculously hard to program, and it would add a new strategy to the game that would be almost impossible to master. Would they base it off of random chance? Could you command a Pokemon to counter? Could a Pokemon counter on switch in? So much goes into the idea that it is better to just let it stay as is...
 
I think most Fire-types are able to control their generation of fire at will. Otherwise you couldn't ride on a Rapidash/Arcanine or hug a Growlithe (anime).
 
I was actually checking that lumineon learned quiver dance on the theorymon thread, when I noticed this. It learns frickin' splash!
Now, splash in japanede does translate to hop, which explains why it was given to spoink and hoppip, but there are still some pokemon which it is strange on. Wailmer, or more to the point, wailord (both by level up). Wailmer/ord can neither bounce nor roll around in shallow water. 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.

Well, by that same logic this learning Spash:



is also blasphemous.
 
Why? I mean, magikarp learns it (it's pre-evo) but I can easily imagine it hopping. I'd like to see snorlax manage both feet off the ground at the same time unless it is using body slam.

"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.
 
Garchomp doesn't learn fly either, but the current hypothesis (given that it is depicted everywhere as flying 0_O) is that it doesn't learn fly because the type of flight that it partakes in-low altitude, short distance, high speed-isn't fitting of the HM definition of the move. Same thing here.
 
I imagine if Volcarona did learn fly it would use it's legs to carry the trainer instead- sort of like Sabrina's Venomoth or Yellow's Butterfree in Pokemon Adventures. So there would be less chance of a burn if it did have burning wings.

Guys....guys it does learn fly
that's what he's saying
 
Oops worded the post wrong, I meant that if it had Fly in its movepool that's how he would use it xD

anyway,


I don't get how Blastoise learns Dragon Tail, it doesn't seem like it's tail is long or strong enough to force the foe to switch back. It doesn't even seem that dragon-related either.

Also


How can it use Whirlwind (egg move)?
 

How can this cow use thunder wave? Where does the electricity come from? I've lost like three battles due to T-Wave from Miltank.

Why!?
 

breh

強いだね

As with any animal, what it eats has to come out from somewhere, I guess...
It's probably just a loud roar

@Miltank: a lot of normal-types have the ability to generate electricity in some capacity; it's not that easily explained.
