    Actually, Water Pulse is a rather weak move that most Ice-types never use. Neither does Lucario, since STAB Aura Sphere actually outdamages super-effective Water Pulse. The move's only real use in the metagame is on Jirachi in the rain, and that's mostly because of Serene Grace increasing its already-hefty chance of inflicting confusion.

    Type coverage and Non-Adjacent hits, for casual play, maybe?

    I was predicting it as a Tutor Move, since the move is a dastardly maneuver in case of certain bad type match-ups...

    Plus, I thought the Vanillite TM chain breed was a sign for it...crap...unless the person who leaked the list forgot to place it in...

    I am more interested to see how some of the ones that are more for Doubles or Triples fare. I can see After You there, and Tailwind, Magic Room and Wonder Room which are probably more useful there. Wonder Room is interesting because it swaps defences, making would be walls not able to wall on that side, like Scizor not being able to take a Physical hit well. After You could create some Trick Room first if a Prankster receives this move, like possibly Sableye.

    On a side note, a Drifblim with Flare Boost and Tailwind could be interesting, considering how it acts like a pseudo-Unburden for a while. And I also second the sentiment of Chandelure gaining Trick. Not only could it carry Specs or Scarf for more offensive potential, it could carry a Flame Orb to surprise would-be counters of Chandelure, especially Tyranitar and Snorlax. I do have to wonder, what if Cofagrigus obtains Stealth Rock too? It's not out of the realm of possibility, since it is based on something mineral (the gold coffin body). It would then be like Froslass, who doesn't have to worry about Rocks being spin in the face of the Spinner.

    Also, I hope that Gliscor can't relearn Stealth Rock and Roost, especially the former. It would be overkill with Poison Heal.

    Thanks for reading.

    I can see Golurk getting Stealth Rock, which would make it the first spinblocker with access to the move. The boosted elemental punches (especially Ice and Fire) would also let it smack a lot of the popular spinners around too.

    It didn't get it :|

    I still have my doubts on if Wonder Room would really be used.

    Virizion got Synthesis.

    -Bounce
    -Signal Beam
    -Iron Head
    -Super Fang
    -Uproar

    -Electroweb
    -Icy Wind
    -Iron Tail
    -Aqua Tail
    -Earth Power
    -Zen Headbutt
    -Foul Play
    -Superpower
    -Gravity

    -Bind

    -Heal Bell
    -Knock Off
    -Roost
    -Sky Attack
    -Role Play
    -Heat Wave
    -Giga Drain
    -Drain Punch
    -Pain Split
    -Tailwind

    -Worry Seed
    -Gastro Acid
    -Helping Hand
    -After You
    -Magic Room
    -Wonder Room
    -Spite
    -Recycle
    -Trick
    -Stealth Rock
    -Outrage
    -Endeavor
    -Sleep Talk
    -Skill Swap
    -Snatch

    Ice Punch Conkeldurr, Mienshao, and other fight types seems like it could reduce Gliscor usage, but this also means Gliscor can run Roost, Stealth Rock, and Poison Heal on the same set.
    The main problem is that Gliscor already suffers from a 4mss. Eq is a must. So the remaining 3 have to be selected from ice fang, taunt, toxic, substitute, sd, sr, roost and all of them have huge merits. I am not saying sr on Gliscor is bad but if everything GLiscor was supposed to be stopping like Conkeldurr starts one shotting it with ice punch then I would agree that its usage will fall.

    And *does a jig*, we have stealth rock again!! I wasn't this happy on my b'day, was I? And b/w has proved that it wasn't broken, especially when my sun volt-turn team cracked 1300. It isn't that big a problem, so I don't know what the mass hysteria is about.

    I find it ironic that most of the After You learners are really slow, and even Shuckle learns it. The main exceptions are Cinccino, Lilligant (in Sun) and Miltank, besides Mew. It sounds like as if it's made for a Trick Room team.

    Also, I am happy with some of the choices. Serperior got Synthesis and Knock Off, but most importantly, Dragon Pulse! That's extra coverage. Golurk's extra moves are awesome too. Stealth Rock, elemental Punches and Drain Punch? It's too good to pass, just only if there's Mach Punch, it would be perfect.

    Thanks for reading.

    Air Slash is leaps and bounds better than Air Cutter, anyway.

    I'm very happy with the selection of tutor moves! Elemental Punches, Drain Punch, Giga Drain, Stealth Rock and some more!

    You guys like them, right? I'm very confused if you like them or not.


    I'm a full time Pokemon Breeder! But please visit, I really do appreciate the help.

    So many amazing additions.

    -Giga Drain/Roost Volca
    -Roost Archeops - now more usable?
    -Superpower/Aqua Tail on Haxorus/Hydreigon
    -Knock off on Scrafty, Serperior, etc
    -Pain Split on Ninetales - finally edit: another weather starter that can heal, Chandelure, Musharna, Porygon2, Tangela, Tangrowth, Cofagrigus
    -ResTalk Cofagrigus
    -LR Heatwave Zapdos
    -Superpower/Thick Fat Mamoswine
    -Magic Room goes on things like Xatu. Potentially very fun
    -Stealth Rock on Terrakion/Golurk/Landorus/PH Gliscor
    -Elemental punches on Conkeldurr/Golurk
    -Drain Punch on Golurk, although No Gaurd DPunch is better pretty much always
    -Trick Victini/Chandelure
    -Bulk Up Heracross (TM addition)
    -Better coverage on klingklang - not sure what else but it definitely gets Wild Charge
    -Spikes Seed Rocks all on Ferrothron now
    -Hurricane Articuno, Moltres
    -Iron Fist Elemental Punches Infernape
    -Heal Bell Liligant
    -Electroweb Magnezone?

    Unfortunately no Ice Punch on Mienshao
