Does Metapod forget all moves?

I was thinking. Since Metapod knows harden only, will it forget its moves when it goes from Caterpie to Metapod?

It still keeps the moves of Caterpie. Caterpie only really had three moves, which String Shot, Bug Bite and Tackle. The only exciting thing of getting a Metapod though is Bug Bite. Of course, it's beyond my imagination of how Metapod could Tackle. xD It's all mathematics and equations. If you took a look in the anime Caterpie evolved into a Metapod, and all Metapod knew at that stage was Harden, so it proves that Game Freak really didn't intend it. :P

No it will keep tacle, and the other moves caterpie gets by level up... bug bite I think.

The only moves it will know (besides harden) are the ones it learns while being a caterpie (string shot, tackle and bug bite).

It doesn't delete these moves automatically when it evolves into a Metapod.

As for the other point of view, wild Metapod must be considered to of somehow skipped their former stage of evolution or was simply never a Caterpie: it was born as a Metapod. Out of my thoughts of insanity I won't go any further into Pokemon reproduction as it doesn't 'float my boat' so to speak.

The Metapod obviously never learned the moves when it was a Caterpie.
