Flare blitz - Learned immediately. No training to perfect it. Replaces Flame Wheel (just because they're so similar).
Blast Burn - I can see there being an episode dedicated to the move tutor just like there was for Gible. It'll take Infernape some time to master it.
The writers will probably go on a new move spree with Infernape just like they did with Combusken.
Earthquake - Learned upon evolving (just like in the games.) Monferno learns Mach Punch upon evolving in the games and did so in the anime too. Same goes for Staraptor and Close Combat.
Wood Hammer - A powerhouse grass type move to set it apart from Paul's Torterra.
Lava Plume - Sense Dawn's Cyndaquil currently only has 3 moves and it's strongest fire attack is Flame Wheel, I can see it getting Lava Plume.
pikachu should learn grass knot and thunder vawe
staraptor should learn air cutter or ominus wind
grotle should learn wood hammer and earthqake when it evoloves
infernape should learn blast burn or thunderpunch
buizel should learn brick break or dig
gible should learn dragonrage.
i might post dawns and brocks teams later.
Pikachu ~ Feint
Staraptor ~ Roost
Torterra ~ Earth Power
Infernape ~ Blast Burn
Buizel ~ Rain Dance
Gible ~ Stone Edge
Pikachu: I've lost count of how many times he comes up against a Pokemon who can use Protect.
Staraptor: Recovery move. Makes Staraptor very difficult to defeat.
Torterra: Makes use of it's Ground typing. Different from Paul's Torterra.
Infernape: Three elemental Hyper Beam's 'rivalry'.
Buizel: So he can activate Swift Swim.
Gible: Type coverage. Strong attack.
happiny should learn copycat,sweet kiss,refresh and drain punch
sudowoodo should learn stone edge and sucker punch
croagunk should learn sludge bomb,pursiut and vaccum wave
piplup shouldnt learn any new move
buneary should learn jump kick,shadow ball and return

Pikachu-Feint,Double team, Protect, Thunder Fang(Personality doesn't match but still)
Torrtera-Earthquake, Wood hammer, Solar beam, Leach seed, Crunch,Frenzy Plant
Infernape-Flare Blitz,Blast burn,Close Combat, Brick break
Buizel-Rain dance, Pursuit, Protect, Hidden power, Brine
Gible- Dragon Claw,Fire Fang, Shadow Claw,Roar, Substitute
Gives everyone at least one defensive move as well as other advantages such as being able to hit protect U-turning/Roar activating swift swim and elemental hyper-beams.
Pikachu - Can't see it learning anything new right now... Although it'll probably be using Thunder again soon.
Staraptor - Was hoping for Twister, but with Gible on the team, it doesn't seem necessary... How about Ominous Wind or Endeavor?
Torterra - At this point, Wood Hammer seems likely. I say this not only because Ash favours recoil moves this saga, but also because it works well with Synthesis. Stealth Rock is also a good choice and would deal with Paul's switching habits.
Infernape - Blast Burn is bound to happen, if only to complete the rival triangle. However Flare Blitz is also a good option and if they didn't want to go with another Fire move, then how about Return or Shadow Claw?
Buizel - The only things i could see it learning are Razor Wind or Rain Dance... but since it's only just learned Ice Punch, i don't think there will be anymore.
Gible - Another tricky one...It's already got a rather good moveset with Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse and Rock Smash. But how about something like Mud Shot or Iron Head to replace Dig, since Infernape already knows that.
Pikachu - Brick Break
Torterra - Frenzy Plant
Infernape - Flare Blitz
Buizel - Ice Fang
Staraptor - Nothing
Gible - For now, nothing
Wobbuffet and his trainer.(credit: Serebii.net)
I actually just posted this in the Sunyshore Speculation thread...
Pikachu also needs a new move. I'm really sick of it's current moveset. I see Brick Break being possible, I think that'd be cool. Otherwise, a move like Return would be nice to see, or some 5th-Gen move. I'm just so tired of Iron Tail and Volt Tackle. ;_;
Infernape will probably learn either Flare Blitz or Blast Burn, though I'd love for it to learn Close Combat. Blast Burn is likely simply because of Barry's Empoleon knowing Hydro Cannon and Paul's Torterra knowing Frenzy Plant.
Staraptor needs a long-range move like Air Cutter. Otherwise, it's good.
Buizel just learned Ice Punch, it likely won't be learning anything new. Chances are we'll be seeing more of Ice Aqua Jet soon.
Gible... I'd love to see Gible with Dragon Rush. Iron Head also sounds good (and fitting).
Also, as for the "Pokemon only know four moves!" argument--the 4-move limit exists in the games to prevent somebody from loading up their Pokemon with every move it can learn, and restrains the Pokemon from being to powerful. It adds strategy to the game.
We've seen Pokemon use more than 4 different moves in a battle before. It doesn't make sense for the moves to be forgotten in the anime.

Pikachu - Return
Torterra - Wood Hammer
Infernape - Blast Burn
Buizel - rain dance
Staraptor - twister
Gible - rock tomb
Just one question. What exactly is Return all about? How is that an attack. If Ash wants to return a pokemon, all he has to do is say "Pikachu, return" or in any other pokemon's cases, he just returns them to their pokeball.
Return is a attacking move.
Yeah, Return is an attack which becomes more powerful if the Pokemon and Trainer have a strong friendship.
Pikachu-Quick Attack, Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, Volt Tackle, Endeavor/Pain Split
Staraptor-Quick Attack, Wing Attack, Aerial Ace, Brave Bird, Close Combat
Torterra-Energy Ball, Rock Climb, Leaf Storm/Seed Bomb, Earth Power/Stone Edge
Infernape-Flame Wheel, Dig, Flamethrower, Mach Punch, Blast Burn
Buizel-Sonicboom, Water Gun, Aqua Jet, Water Pulse, Ice Punch
Gible-Dig, Dragon Pulse, Draco Meteor, Rock Smash
Piplup-Bubblebeam, Peck, Bide, Whirlpool, Hydro Pump
Buneary-Ice Beam, Dizzy Punch, Bounce, Jump Kick/Sky Uppercut
Pachirisu-Spark, Sweet Kiss, Discharge, Super Fang
Mamoswine-Take Down, Ice Shard, Ancientpower, Hidden Power
Cyndaquil-Flame Wheel, Swift, Smokescreen, Flamethrower/Double Edge
Togekiss-Sky Attack, Metronome, Aura Sphere, Air Slash
Sudowoodo-Double Edge, Flail, Mimic, Hammer Arm
Croagunk-Poison Jab, Poison Sting, Brick Break, Sludge Bomb/Gunk Shot
Happiny-Pound, Secret Power, Drain Punch
Light Screen would be a good choice to combat Paul's Torterra. That thing's all about the special attacks... Then of course, by teaching his own Torterra Seed Bomb, Ash could cut through Paul's Light Screen.
Sounds like a plan.

As Ash's Grotle is evolving I want to see it learn Iron Head, Super Power, Outrage or Amnesia. But it most likely learn a move like Wood Hammer and I am fine with it.
