I was expecting something like Stone Edge, and agreeing with Cid, Earthquake.
Stone Edge just seems strange for a snake to use honestly. I'm not sure how it'd manage that lol.

Not really as long as they have coverage moves in general then they're good. Such as Terrakion doesn't have anything to counter/check ground moves but instead uses all out power!

I can't really recall any more notable moves that they should have made some 'mons learn in BW but yeah, I'm really frustrated at the starters (actually at GF) for the reason stated above. Plus pure Grass-types deserve more coverage moves like Sydian said! For Lilligant and Serperior especially. They gave coverage to previous gens' pure Grass-types, why not now?
Wait wat, Emboar doesn't have EQ?? I could've sworn it did...

Nevertheless not sure how a snake or an otter could really shake the ground lol.

Your own very Pokémon story is about to unfold.
You'll face fun times and tough challenges.
A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits!
