Well, it makes sense that it wouldn't be able to learn ice punch because isn't an ice type. I know Floatzel isn't one either, but that doesn't take away the fact that it would make sense if it couldn't learn it.

And it makes no sense to me why a Grass type should learn an electric type attack. Just because there might be a couple grass types that can doesn't mean that every Grass type can be shooting off electricity.

(I don't believe we have a Grass/Electric type Pokemon yet... but I don't profess to know every single 5th gen Pokemon, either.)

Well, they have Wood Hammer and Power Whip which are good enough physical Grass type attacks already. Besides, Grass isn't an element so it would kind of take away the meaning of 'elemental punches'. I know it can be related to earth but that would probably translate more into Rock Punch lol.

Well there are lots of other physical Fire moves, doesn't make Fire Punch obsolete :P Plus Wood Hammer and Power Whip are way more powerful than the punches so it's not the same thing! Horn Leech is closer but not quite there.

Plus if you notice Wood Hammer can only be learned by Pokemon involved with wood, like Sudowoodo, and Power Whip can only be learned by Pokemon with vines except for Lickitung (ew). A Grass-type punch would fill a spot that isn't filled yet, for Pokemon that are humanoid and need a physical grass move.

The name is kinda dumb though.

I guess that's true, but then they should come up with a better name than Grass punch XD Like Leaf Punch or Wood Punch/Branch Punch idk.

    Same way Razor Leaf/Leaf Storm would work probably.

    Just do what me and Bela were discussing. Make Needle Arm have 75bp and have a chance of poisoning. And have that as a grass punch move.

    That wouldn't make sense unless Fire Punch has a chance to burn and same goes for the others, and is called Flame Arm.

      The elemental punches do have a 10% chance of inflicting status on the opponent though.

      Oh I didn't even know that. But yeah one could argue that Needle Arm would be more like a poison-type punch equivalent in that case. Leaf Punch could maybe induce sleep or something. I have no idea how lol. Make it Spore Punch then!

        Haha in which case it should be a Knock Out punch! Though I guess that would be one of those OHKO moves.

        Knock out isn't exactly the same as sleep XD But Spore Whip would be pretty cool, like it could induce sleep, poison and paralysis.

        Personally, I'd just like to tack on a random status condition to the move Seed Bomb and have that be the equal of one of the punches. It's still physical, but since it isn't direct contact you don't have to worry about Poison Point or Static like you would with a punch attack.

        Ooh that is cool, kinda like how Tri Attack has a random chance of Paralyzing, Freezing, or Burning the opponent. Just in this case, the other two status conditions are used. I like this. xD

        I'd like using that move, but I'd HATE going up against an opponent who uses that move. More than anything, status conditions freak me out in Pokemon games.(Grass types already have ample ammunition with which to smite you with various status ailments.)

          Not if they've been Taunted to use attack moves. I used Taunt once on a Meganium and it used Struggle, eventually defeating itself. And about that move, Dizzy Punch, the name sounds so obvious, it should guaranteed confusion on every strike but DynamicPunch already has that effect except it's inaccurate.

            I know it sounds really stupid... but I honestly do wish for a Fire/Water type one day. I know we've got Reshiram that doesn't have a weakness to water (because of it's dual dragon type), but I'd just like to see a Fire/Water type for once. Would be awesome to see a fire type using surf. I mean of you can use Charizard underwater in a battle in R/S/E then why can't we get a fire/water type?

            I need to stop rambling now. Going to now take part in a monotype challange to get me back into Pokémon. Doing a Rock one (since I do believe it'll be tricky to achieve).

            It's not stupid, I totally agree! It is the one typing I really wanted to see that B/W did not deliver. Fire/Water... oh that would solve so many problems in my Pokemon teams.

              Well they did give us a Fire type that was resistant (actually did normal damage) to Water types, but that was a legendary (and as much as I enjoy Dragon types, I don't like Reshiram due to it's retarded cry) so it doesn't count. What I find funny is that while they don't give us a Fire/Water type, they instead let Rock types use the move Surf. Now I don't know what their reason is... but if it's something silly like "You can find rocks in the water so it's only logcial" then why can't they just let fire types use surf as well?

              I'm probably tripping myself up big time here when I say that, but if Gamefreak can make all sorts of weird things, then they shouldn't have difficulty giving me a Fire/Water type. Never mind common sense, it doesn't exist in Pokémon (at least I'm not aware of it). GameFreak should be able to come up with something at least (knowing how they can come up with anything).
