Thread: What move do you think goes with each Pokemon?

  1. #1

    Default What move do you think goes with each Pokemon?

    In my mind every Pokemon I recognize with a particular move. Sometimes it's their signature move but mostly it's just a move I think really relates to them:

    For instance:

    Rhyhorn - Horn Drill
    Tangela - Constrict
    Dodrio - Tri-attack
    Hypno - Hypnosis

    Etc, etc...

    So, I want us to come to come together and discuss with moves go with each Pokemon the best. Since there are more Pokemon then moves some moves can be repeated but there should not be three different Pokemon with all the same move, and each evolution family can only have one member with a particular move. Ex. Only one Pokemon from the Squirtle family can have skull bash.

    List so far:

    Blastoise - Hydro Pump
    Beedrill - Twineedle
    Rattata - Hyper Fang
    Raticate - Super Fang
    Jigglypuff- Sing
    Diglett- Dig
    Shellder - Icicle Spear
    Cloyster - Clamp
    Cubone - Bone Club
    Marowak - Bonemerang
    Hitmonlee - Mega Kick
    Hitmonchan - Mega Punch
    Kangaskhan - Dizzy Punch
    Staryu - Swift
    Jynx - Lovely Kiss
    Magikarp - Splash
    Mewtwo - Psystrike
    Octillery - Octazooka
    Delibird - Present
    Skarmory - Steel Wing
    Smeargle - Sketch
    Hitmontop - Triple Kick
    Miltank - Milk Drink
    Lugia - Aeroblast
    Ho-oh - Sacred Fire
    Blaziken - Blaze Kick
    Latias - Mist Ball
    Latios - Luster Purge
    Jirachi - Doom Desire
    Deoxys - Psycho Boost
    Vespiquen - Attack Order, Defense Order, Heal Order
    Chatot - Chatter
    Dialga - Roar of Time
    Palkia - Special Rend
    Heatran - Magma Storm
    Regigigas - Crush Grip
    Giratina - Shadow Force
    Cresselia - Lunar Dance
    Manaphy - Heart Swap
    Darkrai - Dark Void
    Shaymin - Seed Flare
    Arceus - Judgment
    Victini - Searing Shot
    Oshawott - Razor Shell
    Sawsbuck - Horn Leech
    Bouffalant - Head Charge
    Volcarona - Fiery Dance
    Keldeo - Secret Sword
    Meloetta - Relic Song
    Genesect - Techno Blast

    You guys figure out the rest.

    You can't give all the Abra family Pokemon Kinesis.

    Also, wouldn't Miltank's move be Milk Drink?

    The other ones you mentioned I agree with.

    Default Re: What move do you think goes with each Pokemon?

    Blastoise - Hydro Pump
    Charizard - Heat Wave. Because It's a Fire move based on wind and many other Flying-type Pokémon being able to learn it.
    Typhlosion - Eruption
    Please enjoy this culturally, ethnically, religiously and politically correct signature responsibly. Thank you.

    (original idea)

    I would imagine Camerupt goes better with that move but still that works.

    Really? I think Rest would go better with Snorlax.

    And of course:

    I may be saying the obvious here, but, eh ...

    Bronzor - Mirror Coat
    Meguroko (Sandile in English, I think) - Fake Tears
    Hitmonlee - Mega Kick
    Hitmonchan - Mega Punch

    Does the pokémon have to actually be able to learn the move?

    I know it's a bug-type move, but Leech Life seems right at home on Litwick, considering the dex entry. If it does have to be actually able to learn the move, Storm Throw for Throh, and Fire Blast for Typhlosion, because of the fiery mane.

    Actually, you're right. Maybe I associate Body Slam with Snorlax because that's the move it uses in all three Super Smash Bros. games when summoned.

    A move per two Pokemon. Also, I would have thought Caterpie goes with string shot.

    Blastoise - Rain Dance (for Blue in RBY XD)
    Odd choice. I would have thought Hydro Pump for Blastoise and maybe Rain Dance for like, Ludicolo but okay.

    Miltank - Rollout
    Again with Milktank and the rollout.

    Bouffalant has a signature it's... You know, I'm just going to edit most of the signature moves into the first post.

    And Tauros should have a tail oriented attack like Tail Whip or something.

    Yeah, kind of. I mean, it's not really a signature move if they can't learn it now.

    In FRLG, Blue's Blastoise uses Rain Dance in his first turn, and I bolt it with a non-evading Thunder. It stayed in my head till now. :P

    Miltank - Rollout
    Again with Milktank and the rollout.
    Also, Milktank is associated with Attract.

    Default Re: What move do you think goes with each Pokemon?

    Staryu/Starmie - Bubblebeam
    In RBY, Bubblebeam's animation was nightmare fuel. The horror!

    Koffing - Smog
    Grimer - Sludge
    Voltorb - Selfdestruct
    More problematic Pokemon in RBY days.

    Articuno - Powder Snow
    Zapdos - Drill Peck
    Moltres - Fire Spin
    They didn't learn many moves when I caught them back then. XD;

    Vaporeon - Acid Armor
    It can melt in water.

    Sneasel - Beat Up
    Slakoth - Slack Off
    Skitty - Assist
    Spinda - Teeter Dance
    Signature level-up moves until later gens, so I familiarize these Pokemon with these attacks.

    Bagon/Salamence - Fly
    Its lifelong dream is to fly... Dragon Claw comes to mind too.

    Miltank and Rollout makes a lot of sense for any members who started with Cyndaquil. :( Milk Drink is its signature move, though.
