I was with you 'till this. Most pointless move ever.

Not really. It removed ALL stat changes, Spikes and Toxic Spikes, and Stealth Rock at the same time. Rapid Spin may rmove entry hazards but it can't get rid of stat changes.

Don't feel bad. I don't think a lot of people are aware of this either. I didn't for about three years until I saw it online and stat changes aren't removed. It DOES lower evasion and not to mention Mist, Reflect, Safeguard, and Light Screen are also removed from the target. Splash and Flash are most likely the most pointless attacks. Defog is basically a nonoffensive Brick Break with the add effect to eliminate entry hazards.

Metronome should become a tm and most of the pokemon should be able to use it.

it'd be great if more fire types could learn good grass type moves besides solar beam and grass knot. if it's a mono-fire type; it'll take cake of all its weaknesses with just one move.
hey gastrodon guess what

grass types

Removing entry hazards is what makes it so bad in singles! It gets rid of traps layed on the targets side, so helps them. In doubles, however, you can use this like Rapid Spin, where it is superior as it can't be blocked. Flash isn't useless however, it lowers accuracy, it's not great, but it's far from useless.

I'm not going to argue with splash though ;D

Sneasel/Weavile to learn Ice Punch naturally though level up. I mean, seriously? You ca't even get it to learn ice punch in 5th gen unless you breed one with a 4th gen one that had it taught to it by the freaking move tutor. >.0

Psycho Cut should be a Move Tutor move, Weavile could definitely defend against fighting types with that.

Also when I first played through Platinum I was wondering when my Staraptor would learn Sky Uppercut. Since it learned Close Combat...

I wish more fire types learned electric moves like Thunderbolt. Typhlosion for example.

MAKA CHOP!! o3o

I agree with most of this..
Weavile should absolutely learn ice punch through level up. It is quite a pain getting Ice punch, a move no weavile should be without. Also, psycho cut would be an excellent addition to his rather shallow movepool, since right now the only thing Weavile has to deal with fighting types (which it dreads) is aerial ace, which is effectively useless without technician. I think weavile should learn more high-power moves in general. With its frailty, in addition to weaknesses of many priority moves, it has literally no time to set up a swords dance and sweep. It's a great hinderance that its two best STABs are only 75 base power...

Staraptor should not learn sky uppercut because first of all, it doesn't have fists, making an uppercut impossible, and secondly, close combat is a better move and it can U-turn to remove the stat reduction.

Typhlosion with Thunderbolt would ruin anything in its path. He can already learn thunderpunch (I think) so why not give him an electric move he can actually use with his significantly higher special attack?

Pay Day should be a TM where all the feline Pokémon can use it as well as other Pokémon and those who could be taught it in Gen 1. Also, Mew should be allowed to learn the elemental beams and Draco Meteor from the tutors. It can learn all the OTHER TMs and move tutor attacks but not THOSE four? I mean Arceus can learn Draco Meteor when holding a Dragon Plate so why can't Mew?!
