    Default what moveset upgrade in platinum suprised you?

    Basically, what new moveset were you not expecting? I was suprised to find out in a guide that Caterpie and Weedle can now use bug bite at level 15.

    Outrage DD becoming no longer Dragonite exclusive.
    Crobat learning Heat Wave (though that is a very useful upgrade).
    A bunch of Electrics learning Magnet Rise. I could see a few, but the number that do learn it now is amazing. After all, this means no weaknesses after the Rise.

    I loled so hard when I learned that Luxray could learn Magnet Rise. Signal Beam's spammed on a LOT of various pokémon, and Seed Bomb on Donphan is actually pretty nice.

    Crobat knows heatwave? Thats different considering I don't think any part or total poison types know any fire moves, but I could be wrong.

    Luxray with Magnet Rise, Ice Fang, Fire Fang and Thunder Fang would be sweet as it would negate ground moves which its weak too. If my current luxray with fang moves knew magnet rise, I'd be better off in battle tower wins because of it.

    But it seems strange a pokemon like that levitating on magnitism. I can see metagross, but a luxray would be a bit weird to see.

    And Caterpie and Weedle learing bug bite then? Thats good to know.

    Outrage is a good one thats not Just a dragonite exclusive and wow a lot of pokemon can learn it. Some like Ramparos I am a bit surprised at. I did come up against a japanese Garchomp in wifi battle tower that used Outrage, but I can't tell if it was from Platinum or not, if not, it may have been hacked. Or can it learn outrage in D/P any way?

    That list includes the entire Pikachu line, including Pichu.
    Pikachu is my favorite Pokémon.

    There were other Pokémon that could pull Dragon Dance Outrage, the only other Dragon however was Rayquaza. Its a waste on any non-dragons anyway, but I was really surprised with Venasaur getting it.

    Every electric type and their mother getting Magnet Rise.

    Shinx3000, Garchomp could already learn Outrage in D/P through breeding.

    Alot of Pokémon being able to learn moves via move tutor was interesting, but this takes the cake:

    Iron Defense being learned by Metapod, Kakuna and Beldum.

    You gotta love these types of reasonings.

    Its either these early-game bugs get screwed over and you want them to learn something, or "it ruins everything"

    nice.

    really.

    When am I ever going to hear a real arguement as to why this generation sucks? 90% of these complaints can be applied to the "best gen ever!!!"

    There's really no reason at all to hate Gen IV.

    Weedle and Caterpie learning Bug Bite makes sense being that they are bugs, after all.
