I was hoping to make a specific team consisting of fire/grass pokemon which would have its strengths/weaknesses based around the skill Sunny Day. However ive been having some problems with one pokemon in particular. This pokemon is not the strongest nor the most useful. However, Bellossom has caught my interest knowing it has the ability chlorophyll, starts with the move Sunny Day and has a reasonably powerful physical move leaf blade.
To be honest I was just experimenting with the grass type because I find they are fun to use with skills like giga drain, leech seed, solar beam etc. Even though stat wise they are not outstanding.
My problem is that I have evolved 3 different glooms all at different levels and none of them learned the moves that Bellossom is supposed to begin with. Mainly the two I wanted were Sunny Day and Leaf Blade. I know you can get a TM to teach sunny day and I could teach these moves at a move tutor. However I wanted to teach a different pokemon Sunny Day with the TM and I wanted leaf blade well before the move tutor.
Im not sure why after evolving gloom I didnt get messages saying Bellossom is trying to learn Sunny Day etc... I have no idea what to do.
I bred the oddish that I evolved into gloom to know the move giga drain and sleep powder at lvl 1. For obvious reasons I didnt want to wait until lvl 47 when Oddish is supposed to learn giga drain. Could this effect Bellossom learning starter moves? Im hoping that ive made a rookie mistake and someone can find me an easy fix for my problem. All I know is I want the moves Bellossom is supposed to begin with and im not keen on having to wait until ive 75% completed the whole game.
Sorry if ive broken any forum rules making this thread or ive missed a thread already addressing this problem. I searched on google, youtube, bulbapedia and other sources but couldnt find any reference to a problem like this.
Please help if you have had a similar problem or know the solution.
Moving to Simple Questions, Simple Answers thread in The Lost Tower. @Hughesy123;
Bellossom to learn Leaf blade, you need a Heart scale and go to the Move relearner (I think that was the official name)
So what your telling me is that Bellossom will not learn the moves Sunny Day or Leaf Blade without going to the move relearner to teach them?
I was hoping since both of these moves are supposed to be moves Bellossom begins with according to bulbapedia, that I would be able to get them prior to the move relearner.
I think your right but im somewhat disappointed :/
Not looking forward to using rock smash repeatedly to get two heart scales and then having to wait until that stage in the game to 'relearn' a move that Bellossom should have learned upon evolution.
Thank you for your help Primal, can anyone confirm this?
Does this apply to all moves that fully evolved pokemon 'start' with? In cases where the previous evolution could not learn such a move.
Thank you :)
As stated above, any move listed by Bulbapedia as being learned at "start" means that the pokemon needs to be taught the move via a Move Relearner. One way to get these moves earlier before reaching Blackthorn City is to trade the pokemon to another player who either has the TMs needed or is capable of taking the pokemon to the Move Relearner for you.Originally Posted by Bulbapedia Article: Move Relearner
Trades of this nature can be requested here.
Thank you for your help. I obviously didn't search for the answer to my own question hard enough and I appreciate you spending your time helping me find it.
However I still maintain my opinion that if I need to to teach my pokemon a move via the move relearner it is hardly a "start" move.
Because as the english dictionary states the term "Start" means; To begin with.
Was Junichi Masuda making Black and White during diamond and pearl era? (Also if it is possible, I would like to see a source on where this was confirmed)
HIDDEN POWER of masuda Game Freak didn't not be actively developing BW but he may have already stated planning back then.
Do mean by DP era, do you mean the two years between DP and Platinum or DP to BW releases. If the latter, most certainly.
Serebii.net Forum Mod...
What? If Joe can say runs Serebii next in his, why I can't I say what I do in mine.
For the purpose of evolution, PokeTransfer doesn't count as a trade, correct?
I want to make a Pokemon-type (tabletop) RPG, using Fakemon. Coming up with 200 or so monsters is easy, in that respect, but what I need is balance between types. Is there a list anyplace that shows how many pokemon of each type there are by Generation?
Using the regional Pokedex, I gather that each type in Gen 5 seems to have between 10-15 of any given type (other than Ice and Dragon, but their numbers are always like that). Is there an actual ratio anywhere?
Smogon: 'Nuff said.
Gengar. Awesome, right? Just letting you know.
