Yes, I think its crazy too, especially if it learns moves such as Pluck and Sky Drop, which are supposed to be exclusive to birds, and Struggle Bug, which only Bug-types should have, not to mention Earthquake, which is another unusual move in its arsenal considering the fact that Mew weighs just 9 pounds to be able to shatter the earth.
Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

Guys quit asking the same question over and over. Dugtrio can learn Sucker Punch because it don't require arms or ANYTHING. It's simply a sneak attack, that's all. Which is why it can learn it. I still haven't figured out Rhydon tho. Someone brought up Tyranitar, and it's the same situation with Rhydon it's weak against it which makes no sense. Maybe they have armor or something, hell I don't know lol.

Mew is supposedly the ancestor of Pokemon so it makes sense that it could learn any more. It's got all they're genes so that may explain why it can learn any move. Arceus and Mew are the only two Pokemon that can learn any move.

They DO have wings (look up their pokedex entries on bulbapedia or wherever else), they're just hella short and they blend in with the rest of their bodies.

As someone else mentioned, I believe Mud Sport is meant to be used in double battles.

It is very questionable....the Aura thing would be its only excuse for learning that, and it's not a very good one.

Juat some from the top of my head.
For the whole Toxic thing, I guess every pokemon (aside from Unown) has some kind of bio-hazard in its body that could be poisonous. It's worth looking into...

Mew learning anything really isn't crazy at all. And IIRC, it canNOT learn Sketch and Chatter, for some reason.

Love Dunsparce though!
I figure that Dunsparce, being a snake, can contort its face to make a glare.

Why WOULDN'T Surf be Water typed? Even if Pikachu is using it, you still need water to's not unbelievable. Snorlax can do butterfly stroke......
About that bit "in the middle of desert," I have no idea what you're talking about, actually.

According to bulbapedia, the Japanese version of Sucker Punch literally means "surprise attack". Also, a sucker punch doesn't exactly HAVE to be a punch, you know.

I play SSBB (Brawl) a lot. Hit me up if you want a match with me.
If you have any questions regarding pokemon, ask me and I'll kindly respond. :>
If you have any questions about life I'll answer those too. x)
