    And finally, the Magnemite line can not get its ass handed to it by ground attacks. Too bad Metagross gets it as well. That's just mean.

    Ugh. I haven't bothered to look at the altered movesets of the old Pokemon. It looks like almost every single one got at least one new move though.

    Depends. They either have a new old move, a new move, or can only learn new moves via TMs and breeding, for example, Trapinch and Spheal.

    Pinsir FINALLY gets a good STAB move in Scissor Cross. It's a TM and it also learns it naturally.

    Haven't checked Forretress' movepool yet, does it get good Bug and/or Steel moves?

    It gets Electrolevitate.

    Mirror Shot and Gyro Ball are okay Steel attacks.

    The only Bug attack it gets in Pin Missle, through Breeding...

    Forretress' attack moves (aside from Earthquake to protect against Magneton rape) are mostly irrelevant, it's mostly there for utility and Explosion X)

    Yeah I know that, but it could still have been given a STAB move or two for in-game.

    Though Electrolevitate now makes that a moot point. Magneton and Jibacoil laugh at Forretress.

    At last, Ninetales can sweep with that devastating 81 Base Special Attack it has. *shot* Obviously not in combetitive play but still, about time it got a good moveset.

    I feel like Poomo tonight.

    Steel-type is really horrible offensively. Most Steel-type Pokemon can already learn Earthquake, which deals with Ice-types and Rock-types better than Metal Claw or anything along the lines of such, plus more.

    Of course, defensively, I maintain that it is ridiculously overpowered in some cases - Metagross comes to mind. And people used to complain about Dragonite . . .

    Not if the opponent is Aerodactyl, Cradily, etc, in which case a good STAB Steel attack (Iron Tail, Meteor Mash, Steel Wing, new attack) would be better than EQ. Especially seeing as how EQ can't hit Aero at all.

    (Sorry, just had the urge to correct you there.)

    Forretress should be using the "Switch" attack instead of any sort of Steel move X)

    That Summersault attack sounds cool, but why is it Bug?

    I'm surprised Neorantu wasn't a part-bug considering it is a Butterfly Fish and learns Silver Wind and Summersault, Bug Type Moves.


    With these new Bug Moves, what would be the most KICKASS moveset for Korotokku?

    Does Somersault keep status effects like Baton Pass does?

    Maybe because bugs jump a lot and they wanted more Bug moves? I dunno.
