Serebii's Pokédex updated with egg moves for gen 6 Pokémon

The first thing everyone will notice is how few moves there is for everything bar the one Pokémon that evolved from an old one. Right now I'm really hoping that these lists are incomplete, because well, there are barely any damaging moves on there, aside from the obvious fang moves on Tyrantrum (definitely one of the big winners, especially with Dragon Dance being there as well). Sure, there's some stuff that could be interesting, like Spikes Chesnaught, Toxic Spikes Greninja or Discharge Aurorus, but nothing truly amazing.

Edit: Contrary to what I said earlier, Smogon confirmed Serebii was wrong in that EEVEE DOES NOT GET PLAY ROUGH AS AN EGG MOVE. It was also posted on Serebii's forums, so it should be fixed momentarily.

  1. Even though gaining Play Rough is welcome and adds some coverage, it still doesn't fix Leafeon's biggest flaw, which is Steel types. All of Leafeon's best moves are resisted by Steel types, so a Steel type is a total stop to Leafeon.

  2. Well, it was fun having Flareon's movepool be a running gag while it lasted...

  3. Well he did say that more would be added as they find them and that there might be a few errors here and there.
    I don't think we'll get anything super amazing but you never know, I guess. Also Gogoat gets Milk Drink naturally so that's another of those weird "I learn it naturally but also through a specific egg move because reasons" things

  5. One thing that bothers me about Serebii's site... If certain Pokemon like Bouffalant and Buneary for instance aren't available in XY yet in any way, why do their new menu sprites exist on Serebii.net...?

  6. Well Tajiri's never gonna give Flareon something good after it killed his parents, huh?

    1. Well it got Flare Blitz, that alone ought to propel it in the top 500 best Pokémon now.
