So its a good thing my Snorlax has lick? I thought that’d be a pretty bad move for it, since it can’t fight normal pokemon with it.

on August 20, 2016

I think these are outdated since attack moves have been re-worked fairly recently. Also, competitive wise, back then the pokemon you’d be fighting against to claim gyms would mostly be vaporeon, dragonite, gyarados, snorlax, and executor. So most of the time you wouldnt have the ghost against normal type disadvantage.

on September 21, 2016

Oh back then, I thought it worked the same as the game rules where ghost type had no effect on normals, and pidgeots were actually common gym inhabitants back then. So I thought if anyone just so happened to choose a pidgeot into my snorlax, it was doomed.


Of course now I know that’s not the case, and I’m quite satisfied having lick against those pesky exeggcutors.

So why would flash cannon for blastoise be better than hydro pump?
Just asking, I just evolved my blastoise and got flash cannon and got bummed out. But the list says it’s good.. so should I keep it or just get another one with hydro pump?

I don’t see Hyper Beam / Solar Beam in that list. Thought those are the best moves, because they can do 120 damage.
