Well, when I was a beginner, I had a Blaziken with Sky Uppercut, Blaze Kick, Fire Blast, and Brave Bird. I had a little bit of coverage there. There's no excuse for using four Fire type moves like that.
And then there was my Weavile with Dark Pulse and Blizzard.
I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon. 3DS FC: 5043-2277-6391 - THIEF
Am I the only one that never liked having moves of the same type on a single poke when they first started?
My only exception would be something like having flamethrower and fire blast just for when I needed to do big damage. The other would be something like having a mix set for a pokemon and giving it a physical and special move of the same type
