    Give Scizor a counter to Fire types? Really? Does it need a counter? It is one of the best Pokemon in the entire game. It's fine as it is.
    If a Pokemon is not a crab, but has similar features, it should learn the move. Corphish and Crawdaunt are technically not crabs, and they can learn the movie.

    Crabhammer ruined my Swampert only run in Sapphire Battle Tower
    Final Trainer. Final Pokemon. "Crawdawnt used Crab hammer" "Swampert Fainted" Leaving the crap pokes I entered so Swampert would be the only one that could deal damage

    Sorry, drifting off there

    I think that if any, JOLTEON should learn Volt Tackle

    I got super upset when Hippopotas couldn't learn Dig in Platinum, and I got happy when they added it in HGSS.

    I think that Kingler should be able to learn Waterfall. It's the only physical HM Water move, and it can't learn it!

    Ehh no, Jolteon isn't a physical attacker Volt Tackle wouldn't do it any good that's like giving Machamp Aura Sphere. Electivire or Luxray would be excellent for the attack to bad it's exclusive to the Pikachu line.

    Armaldo(Dragon Dance)- It doesn't look like a Dragon but Tropius,Crawdaunt, and Whiscash got it which made no sense whatsoever. Armaldo would make decent use of the move though and it looks more like a Dragon than those three.

    Blaziken(Close Combat)- It should have gotten it when Diamond and Pearl came out plus it needs a decent Fighting type move to make good use of its high attack and STAB.

    Garchomp(Quick Attack or Extremespeed) - It's the Mach Pokemon and it's Pokedex entry says it flies at Sonic Speed giving it Extremespeed would be a little crazy but Quick Attack at the most.

    Hitmonchan(Shadow Punch)- I don't know what the Japanese name for the move is but it's Iron Fist ability would make great use of this move especially against Ghost.

    Flygon(Sing)- Again a little crazy but apparently when it flaps it's wings it sounds like Singing wouldn't make much sense but whatever.

    Farfetch'd(Leaf Blade)- The Leek not much to say on this one or does it already have Leaf Blade?

    Oh and Ninjask Extremespeed come on it's the fastest non legendary pokemon it could use this move it doesn't make any sense why it doesn't have it.

    Typhlosion. Earth Power.

    It's a VOLCANO pokemon for pete's sake (and the poor thing could take ANY added special moves to it's movepool... HG/SS was the perfect excuse to give it better moves and it went to waste)

    Scizor has nothing whatsoever to do with a crab. Steel pincers don't count.

    It didn't go to waste; the Cyndaquil line got Extrasensory as an egg-move, which, while not as great as Earth Power would've been, is pretty awesome.

    Sandslash should be able to learn Air Slash (it's in the name so he should be able to learn all slash moves)
    I agree with these two:
    Luxray should be able to learn Volt Tackle
    Empoleon should be able to learn Brave Bird

    As was said things that look nothing like dragons got Dragon dance so why all the fuss over Scizor getting Crabhammer? I think it would be good on it and would make sense. More sense than crab-like Crawdaunt getting Dragon Dance in any case.

    The claws may be pincers but they are fundamentally the same shape as a crab's and the strength is there with the steel typing.

    I think Scyther should learn fly as it has the bulk to hold a human and it has decent sized wings. Even Scizor could deal with it, even though it gains wieght with it's steel typing and reduced wings it should still be able to hold a human. Dragonite has ridiculously small wings and it can learn fly and bird pokemon barely two feet tall can learn and use fly outside of battle.

    Of course Flareon needs Flare blitz. It has mediocre stats compared to it's fellow Eeveelutions so the lovely attack stat should have access to this move.

    Volt tackle would look good with Jolteon and is highly feasible but i agree, it's SpAtk is far better. It does not need the physical moves.

    My shiny team. Do not ask for a battle, they're just for personal taste.

    Almost all flying types with a beak. Drill Peck. They have beaks, they can spin while flying, no excuse for not having drill peck and no breed move spam because I realised it isn't worth it to train from level 1.

    Gengar should learn fly.. He can float and he has picked up and flown ash throughout the episodes (not talking about the one where ash was a ghost)

    When you can attach moves like Bone Rush to attention *****s known as Lucario, Crabhammer sounds more than agreeable for a Pkmn that AT LEAST has pincers (i.e. Scizor). Could totally see that.

    Psycho Boost for Mewtwo.

    Also, Mew should be given a much larger -- and obscure -- choice of moves when leveling... Strange things like Sketch, Wood Hammer, Drill Peck... Multiply and diversify. Haha.

    Lucario does have a metal-bone-thing protruding from its arms, y'know?

    Psycho Boost should remain a signature move. I wouldn't mind something else for Mewtwo, though.

    It was based on the dotaku. While it doesn't have a ball inside of it (like, say, the Liberty Bell), it was meant to be struck from the outside. For a recent example, look at Odama for the Gamecube: Its central feature is a bronze bell, the same kind of bell Bronzong is based on, which you were encouraged to ring with the pinball.

    For that matter, Bronzor is a mirror but can't learn Reflect.

    Actually Bronzor can learn Reflect by TM but if you mean by level up then I get what you're talking about. Almost as weird as Lanturn not being able to get Light Screen (even by TM!!!)

    Oh, Bronzor can learn Reflect through a TM? For some reason, I missed that.

    No worries man, I somehow missed the fact that Shuckle could learn Rollout by tutor in HG/SS :P

    Ampharos is the light Pokemon and is said to use its tail as a lamp.

    Ampharos can't learn Tail Glow.

    Huh?

    Garchomp should have access to Fly, Extremespeed.

    It would make mine at least an absolute beast..

    Huh?
    Tail Glow is called Fire Fly Light in the Japanese version so I guess that's why but Ampharos with Tail Glow would be pretty cool. Another thing why do people suggest moves like Brave Bird Empoleon and Air Slash Sandslash. Empoleon is more of a special attacker so Air Slash would be a lot better another thing Leafeon really should learn Seed Bomb through level up it learns Leaf Blade at such a high level it's annoying. Solrock and Lunatone should both be able to learn Moonlight and Morning Sun as the last move that they learn and Pidgeot needs Extremespeed.

    Lol, it's already an absolute beast :P however it would make Garchomp slightly less predictable. Currently all Chomps are working either Choice sets or Swords Dance - Substitute ones, so adding a few more moves to it's movepool wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Leafeon, Solarbeam through levelup. It mentions photsynthesis in many of its pokedex entries. Leaf Blade at a lower level as well and Seed Bomb at 36 so you don't need to breed/ relearn to get a physical grass move.
