Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    Talking about the grass type's moves coverage, I suffered from the same ill, Serperior and its lack of different coverages. Although they can learn different and now-attractive moves via tutor, I was wondering, why none of my favorite TMs suit it to complete the moveset? 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.

As for the statement about previous gen pure Grass types given coverage, they mean nothing if they do not have Rock Slide, Nature Power, Natural Gift, Weather Ball, Ancientpower, Focus Blast, or Earth Power to coverage almost all of their weaknesses, which is a necessity to make a good Pokemon.
    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.

      Can seem somewhat difficult to figure at the first moment, but it's a snake. They move from a place to another crawling on the surfaces and they have full contact with the floor. They use caves made of stone to make their nests what recall a connection with the stones.
      Pardon me, I know this pokemon is out of topic, but serves as a good example. Machamp have flame sacs? A wrestler, human-like pokemon throwing fire from its mouth? I know that is very useful, but seems very strange.

        Yet Smogon recommends Hidden Power even for Pokemon with decent coverage moves, and they're mostly types used to cover their weaknesses.

        It does learn EQ.

        Seviper and Arbok know EQ, so why not Serperior?
