Why Pikachu no use Volt tackle anymore?

If I'm not mistaken he hasn't used it once in Unova. Whenever Pikachu used it he was completely BA, so why did he stop?

Because they just had to have him learn a Gen V move. He forgot it so he could learn Electro Fail.

He hasn't used it since he learned Electro Ball, which means he forgot Volt Tackle for it.

Do they really follow the 4 moves per Pokemon on the show? I didn't think they did but I guess I haven't paid close attention and it would explain it. But still it's dumb.

Yes, they do.

Except for Drake's Dragonite, which knew 10 moves, but the writer of the episode said he did that to make Dragonite seem more powerful.

Because Ash usually has control over moves his Pokemon learn. Especially when they learn the move in the heat of the moment in order to solve the episode's problem. He TOTALLY should have pressed that B Button.

Do you people listen to yourselves?

But yeah, VT Pikachu was just more badass.<_<

Maybe they can redeem it by having zekrom give pikachu bolt strike or something as an apology. Then we can have a bolt strike pikachu event

But Ash does have control over the moves his Pokemon learn. When a Pokemon learns a new move when it already has four moves, you get the option to either replace any move that you want to get rid of, or to not let the Pokemon learn the move at all, meaning that Ash should be able to control his Pokemon's movesets. There's no excuse, he's a total idiot.
