Lots of Pokemon learn moves not of their type.

The reason people like it when the Pokémon and move are the same type is because there's a 50% bonus in power then.

Because it's likely that the moves shown are STAB moves.

Systems that block used games are in violation of US and EU laws.
If Micro$oft tries to do it... CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT TIME!
