Trivia

  • Prior to the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, this move had a very unique distribution, being simultaneously a TM and an event-exclusive move due to TM95 not being available yet. Thus the only way for the move to be generally obtained at that time was to receive the event Zoroark listed above, then pass down the move via breeding or chain breeding, taking advantage of the fact that TM moves can be passed down. Outside of Volt Tackle, this was the only case where a move that is not an Egg Move required breeding to obtain.
