  1. Is knock off not as useful this meta or is it too rare to mention?

  2. Does this factor in move tutors? For example, Crobat learns Tailwind from ORAS move tutors. How does it learn Tailwind in SuMo?

    • Crobat unfortunately cannot learn Tailwind without the aid of move tutors. We have not included any pokemon that can learn moves by move tutors as there are no move tutors in Sun and Moon!

      • Cool thanks for the confirmation – I was holding out hope you guys knew something I didn’t. Looks like my bro Cro will have to wait a format or two before being relevant again. Keep up the great work guys!

  3. Im pretty sure Gengar can learn Icy Wind, but it is not listed.

  4. In the Move-listings, “Pickpocket” is listed with Raichu, A-Raichu, Emolga and Togedemaru. Pickpocket is an ability first and foremost, and neither of those listed has access to it. Did you, by chance mix this up with something along the lines of Nuzzle or Spark? No similar listing is found on the reference-spreadsheet, either, so I really can’t figure that one out.

  5. Isn’t it fairly moot to include the non-Alolan forms on these lists?

  6. I’m surprised to not see Taunt under useful moves. It’s a key move that helps in a ton of match ups.
