    They probably wanted at least one Dark move easily available.

    Lick=Ghost Type Move. WTF?

    We all know that ghosts love to lick people! The move also sucks unless I'm missing something...

    Let's see you fall asleep in the middle of a fight.

    Also...can't think of anything honestly. I've disagreed with most posts I've read. Some moves are useful early game, but obviously have little to no use in Meta-game. Some moves only have use in meta-game and little to no use in game.

    Even Splash has a point. It exists so Magikarp isn't using struggle until level 15.

    The water type attack splash. It sucks. *splash, splash...but nothing happened.* That can get very annoying.

    "AncientPower" needs to have a space in it. Would it have killed them to put a space? It bothers me every time I see it.

    yeah, and really, who needs ANOTHER Normal-type move that has absolutely nothing unique going for it? 60 power and a flinch rate? You might as well just use Headbutt.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    Detect/Protect , Mind Reader/Lock On etc - Okay, one of them is nice, but BOTH of them? At least with attacking moves they have the excuse of giving other types STAB, but...

    Hidden Power should have been ???-Type.
