    Leavanny can learn steel wing. Where are the wings? And how does it turn wings into steel. Mew makes sense,because mew's whole thing is that it gets all tms and HMs and most tutor moves. Elgyem and beeheeyem make sense because it's TM51 and they're from Area 51 (aliens).

    Doduo and Dodrio can learn Fly despite being based off flightless birds. This has always bothered me a lot.

        Rhydon can learn Surf, yet it's 4x weak to Water. It would DIE while Surfing!
        Klefki can learn Draining Kiss. How does it kiss? ~_~
        Smeargle being able to use Fly via Sketch. Actually, Smeargle being able to use any move with Sketch is strange and weird.
        Zubat can use Mean Look. But it doesn't have any eyes! I doubt its mouth can convey much "mean looks".
        A tiny bird like Pidgey or Spearow using Fly. How can this tiny little sparrow-sized bird carry a person from one city to another?
        Diglett and Dugtrio using Scratch, Slash, Sucker Punch, etc.. Where are its claws/fists?

        Pokémon logic is weird. ^_^

        A few genderless pokemon like Cryogonal can learn Attract, which is useless on it. {XD}

                1. pokemon don't die
                2. i know that klefki is weird
                3. some moves do make sense for smeargle to use
                4. zubat's teeth are triangles,so it's hiding its four eyes in its four teeth
                5. pidgey and spearow do make sense to learn fly. they're winged birds that can fly,so it makes sense for the to learn fly.
                6. diglett and dug trio scratch and slash the opponent with their noses,and sucker punch's japanese name is surprise attack
                7. yes,pokemon logic is weird

                Mew is the only genderless Pokémon that can learn captivate but it fails everytime due to being genderless

                like why

                And then we have Cryogonal, another genderless Pokemon that's able to learn Attract... but Volcarona, a Pokemon that has a gender, can't even learn it.

                What explains this, Game Freak?

                Rain Dance on Flareon, Moltres, Ho-Oh, Heatmor & some other Fire Types. Great choice, after all why wouldn't you want to lower the damage of your only STAB moves (in case of single Fire Types) by 50% .

                  Why can Pheromosa learn Blizzard. Dhelmise can learn Attract, too.

                  Same way, Sunny Day on Water Types like Vaporeon, Slowking, Corsola, Suicune etc. Again it reduces the power of Water Types by 50%. Why the heck would Pokemon learn moves that reduces their STABs? Doesn't make sense at all .

                    Groudon can learn Thunder. It's pointless due to accuracy being 50%, and it uses its inferior Special Attack.

                      To be fair, Genesect's cannon serves as a means to shoot flames from.

                      Anyway, I don't get how Solgaleo gets Wake-up Slap. Probably swats with its front legs?

                      There's also Cryogonal with its weird array of moves besides Attract, like (Night) Slash and Solar Beam.

                          Machamp shouldn't be able to learn Flamethrower. Not only does it make no sense for Machamp to be able to breathe fire, it is one the worst moves you could teach to a Machamp as its Special Attack stat is generally much lower than its Physical Attack stat. Teach it Fire Punch instead.

                          Also, Mew shouldn't be able to learn Captivate as Mew is genderless and therefore Captivate will always fail when Mew uses it (although I see this has already been brought up).

                          I have no idea how Rattatas are capable of learning Thunderbolt or Ice Beam. If rats in real life were able to do that, I would be scared for everyone's lives. :D

                          In fact, the fact that Normal-types learn all these weird TM moves is something you'd want to question a lot. Especially ones that are based on typical animals.

                            Mew's whole thing is that it gets all TMs and HMs,so it makes sense for it to be able to learn captivate. just don't use that TM on it.
