There are some strange incompatibilities, but that's OK. I mean, incompatibilities can be fixed very easily through patches. Overcompatibilities are much harder to correct.

EDIT: I checked the Johto legends, and they barely got anything (they got Weather Ball though). I'm missing:

Raikou: Nasty Plot, though that's somewhat OK...
Entei: Still miss Earthquake. Also miss Crunch
Suicune: Hurricane
Lugia: Focus Blast; not that he needs it but still
Ho-oh: Fire Spin. And Hurricane.
Raikou getting Scald is pretty big.

Have checked and it's Raikou indeed. My gosh Gamefreak is messing things up.

Not bad but why are they still trying to make physical sceptile work?

Leaf Blade was originally Sceptiles’ signature move right? It makes perfect sense that a Pokemon with a physical Signature move to be pushed in that direction.

Well, Leaf Blade was a special in Gen 3 since it was pre-split, which is honestly probably the only reason why Sceptile’s Sp.Atk is the higher offensive stat. Had it been created in Gen 4 and beyond, its offensive stats would have probably been the other way around given its movepool.

Not necessarily. All Water moves were special in Gen 2, and yet Feraligatr's stats are clearly oriented towards being a physical attacker.

Chesnaught doesn't get Power Whip OR Close Combat....


I wouldn't have expected it to.
It has no vines, tentacles, etc. with which to use Power Whip, and Close Combat is for lighter attackers, generally speaking. The bulky, slow ones only get Superpower.

Like Hariyama? Machamp? Crabominable? Mudsdale?

Except that was before the phyiscal/special split so technically leaf blade was a special attack.
Emotions are for the weak they said........there goes my sense of fear and caution they said........i'm dead they said........

Chesnaught has vines. It can learn Vine Whip.

Close Combat is also not just for light attackers as Pokémon like Hairyama can learn it.

which is basically my point? Sceptile was an SpA BECAUSE of how it used to be. The argument is giving Sceptile options as a phys attacker, if his signature move is a physical attack, what’s the problem with trying to give him a physical moveset.
