Evolutions

The cocoon Pokémon can learn this from the tutor. Doesn't that also mean that their evolutions can learn it? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 20:57, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

No, they can not learn it from the move tutor. Just like uproar and baby pokemon. The Placebo Effect 20:59, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
But how is that possible? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 21:01, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Cause gamefreak made it that way. Surprisngly, many baby pokemon (Elekid, Magby, Togepi, Riolu....) Learn Uproar from move tutors, but none of their evolved forms do. The Placebo Effect 21:03, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm gonna have to check for myself when I get Platinum. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 21:04, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Do you not trust the data from serbeii and smogon confirming this? The Placebo Effect 21:07, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
They're not always correct. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 21:10, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
Maybe not always, but I was personally involved with testing. Enough to know that these have been checked to make sure that those results were right about who learns uproar. Iron defense being learned by cocoons but not their evos makes just as much sense as uproar being learned by babies and not their evos.

I'm still gonna check it myself when I get Platinum. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 21:16, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm not going to stop you (not like I can anyways) Just don't be surprised when you get the same results. The Placebo Effect 21:18, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
