Hi there, I am a newcomer... not only for this forum but also for the pokemon world. I have completed my pokèdex in r, b and then started playing gold... and I think I missed up something about breeding. There's something I must have misunderstood about EGG MOVES or whatever.
Here's the problem.
I wanted to make a pure-water team for fun, and I wanted a Fighter in my team. Only choice is Poliwrath. But Poliwrath does not really learn any Fighting technique and there are not tms apart dynamic punch, so I decided to use (chain) breeding, starting from the only fighter which does not belong to breeding group 8: mankey.
So I raised up a male mankey (breeding group 5) until it learned some decent attack (cross chop, seismic toss and karate chop. I deleted the 4th attack to keep an open spot for hypnosis which i like). Then I let him have... sex with a female Wooper (breeding groups 2 and 5: poliwag is group 2...). I had the egg. I walked to have him hatch and... the baby wooper ONLY KNEW WATER GUN AND TAIL WHIP!!! It didin't know ANY of the father's techniques as it should (or not?).
So I desperately started looking for infos in the web, and I found that, actually, not all of the father's moves can be bred but only certain "egg moves". But which moves are these, I don't know! How can I figure it out???
please give me some information if you can, and please also forgive me if my english is not so good... :)
