I hope everything can't learn toxic, earthquake and stealth rock this generation

Why do you hate those moves? There's no particular problem with them, and Toxic is one of my favourite moves as it can help in so many problematic battles, and the oddest Pokemon learn it.

I've even put it on Pikachu a few times for some Electric teams.

Plus, if you can't handle Earthquake and Stealth Rocks then either don't whine or don't play competitively, simple. Every move and strategy has it's counter, learn them at your own pace and don't hate the moves themselves.

You think a few moves is bad? Try not being able to win any matches except by sheer luck. I can't ever get a decent win streak, because I overthink things, take too long and make rushed decisions. I've only ever won against people who are much worse than I am as a result.

I don't know about Earthquake and Stealth Rock, but pretty much everything being able to learn Toxic is kind of a given.

Everything should be able to learn Toxic. Even Magikarp. Even Smeargle from TM. Even Ditto without transforming.

Everything but poison types. They don't get it.

I hate that Earthquake is given to so many other Pokemon. Especially when the TM is usually available before the post-game.

The only reason to even use Bulldoze over it is because you don't have access to Earthquake. At the very least, I'd like to see some Technician mons get Bulldoze but not Earthquake. The only one capable of using it is Hitmontop, who gets Earthquake.

I wouldn't mind seeing Stealth Rock be adjusted not to deal type-based damage. If it kept the 3x spikes damage, it would still be extremely useful, without rendering so many Pokémon unusable.

I honestly think poison types should only be able to learn toxic. Gives them a buff and makes more sense than everything and its mother having toxic.

If you are going to make a post like this, you should probably at least change earthquake to flamethrower so it makes sense...

BTW its still not a valid comparison. Bulldoze and earthquake have different effects. Flamethrower and ember are identical bar power as far as I can remember.
