Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

One of my Pikachu did not learn Thunderwave at Level 9. Has something gone wrong? (Blue)?

I was recently playing Pokemon Blue on my Gameboy, and I decided I would like two Pikachus on my team (one I called Simon, the other Jane).
Now when Simon reached Level 9 he learned Thuderwave as he should BUT when Jane reached Level 9 she did not learn Thunderwave.

Later I found a TM for Thunderwave in my Items that I do not remember picking up.
I caught both Pikachus within 5 mins of each other in Veridian Forest, I believe I caught Simon first.

I was wondering if I have caught a special Pikachu, or if my game has flawed?

Blue was one of the first Pokemon games, plus it has a whole lot of glitches, so Jane not learning thunder wave must be a glitch then. Hope I helped(ish)!

i think the games eventually degrade.  one of mine gets weedles when it's not supposed to have them show up in the game

The same thing has happened to me several times recently in Pokemon black. However many of the Pokemon learned the missing move after leveling up again. I am sure there is nothing wrong with your Pikachu, it simply is a slow learner.

Jane's Thunderwave must have become a TM when it was supposed to learn Thunderwave
