Why can EVERYTHING learn Toxic?

#1Faust_8Posted 3/21/2013 9:57:14 PM
Old idea but still, just imagine how much more useful Poison types would be if only they could use Toxic. Right now their sole use is Fighting resistance, Toxic Spike laying/absorbing, and blocking enemy Toxic attacks.

Because a Vaporeon badly poisoning me is just extremely weird.

"Can Vaporeon learn a Fire move like Flamethrower?"
"What? No, that makes no sense. It's a WATER Pokemon, it can't just summon fire by magic."
"But it can just magically summon strong Poison from nowhere."
".........uh"

I've seen this idea said before but I don't really remember what people said about it, so I'm curious.

I think the concept is maybe more man made. (IE the poison is concealed on their body and is then released during battle allowing many Pokemon to use Toxic.)

Even with that concept, I do agree it is quite a bit absurd. Especially when certain Pokemon can't even learn a majority of the moves of their own type, but learn odd ball attacks such as Toxic.

Now he can fart and blame it on someone else.
