While there are a few isolated incidents that make me go 'huh?' when I learn that a Pokemon can learn a certain move (e.g. Rhydon/Rhyperior and Surf), for the most part, I revel in the wider movepools and try to exploit them whenever possible. Hikari mentioned Reuniclus and Focus Blast, which is a great example of a move that seems illogical on the face of it, but makes a great deal of sense when you think about it in greater detail. The other points about limiting potential strategies have already been mentioned, but I also agree with them as well. Also, in any event, isn't it kinda fun when you learn that something like Octillery can learn Flamethrower? That's just awesome to me. :D
