It is actually finished!

So, what's this all about?
This the list of moves Pokémon used to have but no longer have and can't obtain in other methods. It also lists errors in alternate continuities and games, some more obvious than others.

What's the purpose of this?
These are the moves Pokémon lost or never gained. Moves are important for flavor purposes as well as metagame purposes, as such the loss of these are important. In addition, many of these moves are eventually integrated into the movepools of Pokémon one way or the other, and for those discussions it is important.

How is everything listed?
Everything is listed in the way Bulbapedia lists them. I don't plan to change them to a more commonly accepted method if there is one(since I'm not a TCG guy, I geniunely don't know if there is).

Why doesn't this include x move?
If there are some moves that are not present, I clearly missed it. You should contact me about them through VM.

Why isn't this x past event move/TM move/alternate continuity move listed?
If there is an event-only move/past TM that is not listed, it is most likely because Pokémon can currently learn it in some non-event manner. If the Pokémon currently can't, read the above.

Why isn't this y move combinations that are illegal listed?
The purpose of this list is for flavor, not competitive(at least not primarily). I never once considered putting illegal move combinations or move combinations that are only legal thanks to Dream World, since they can be easily changed by an upcoming Pokémon's moveset. Besides, most of those could be easily fixed if GameFreak put a Sketch learning Pokémon for every Egg Group.

Why is there x error/misspelling?
You should contact me about them through VM. Even if I don't take any action.

When do you plan to update this?
Never. Since movesets are never finalized until the last game in each generation is released, I will not update this list until we get all of the information of the last game of Gen VI, which in itself will take a lot of time because of the issues of researching 3DS software.

Of course, unless I forget them, I will add the next released event moves and alternate continuity move errors.

Do you plan to make an all encompassing list of obselete Move Tutor and TM moves?
I might, though I don't plan doing one for the time being.

Why did you add moves that barely qualify as errors?
Bulbapedia had them so I figured it was better to put them in than exclude them.

Why some moves have periods at the end of the availability list and some don't?
Laziness.

Why some Pokémon are more clearly described in their appearances and some aren't?
Again, laziness. Some of them are deliberate though, such as Regigigas, since it was the only Regigigas in its episode.

Why one stage Pokémon that clearly won't have evolutions are called lines?
For sake of consistency than anything else.

Why the ones that don't have anything to be listed are listed?
It is for sake of consistency as well, though it also helps as a placeholder.

Will you list the alterations?
Probably, if there are some that must be made. I might not be bothered with small changes, though I will probably write the name of the person who suggested me.

Why is this read-only?
I exported it from LibreOffice. I will probably have another link up when I update this. You can still copy-paste it obviously.

Why haven't you done my x suggestion about this even though I presented it kindly?
I might just not care about it. I am very lazy and I have other stuff to do. That said, you can read the below question.

Can I edit this?
Yeah, sure, go ahead. It is not like this is from my personal information database or anything. I just copied the contents of other websites.

    Wonderful job! That took a lot of work, I can tell, so you deserved to be congratulated.

    I find it amusing that Kanto's Pokemon took up half of the document. Goes to show that they have a large history that are worth listing.

    Thanks for reading.
