Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

If you were to GTS trade a Pokemon with Dive/Whirlpool, would it be able to trade since they can both be reqular moves?

Like in the Sinnoh games, Whirlpool and Dive are just normal moves like Pound, Slash etc. while in Heartgold and Soulsilver, Whirlpool is a HM.

There's a catch here

If you are trading a Defog Pokémon from HGSS to DPPt then it should work, because Defog isn't a HM moves in HGSS. But you can't trade the same Defog Pokémon from DPPt to HGSS because Defog is an HM in DPPt.

The same applies for Whirlpool and Dive. You can trade a Whirlpool Pokémon to HGSS, but you cannot trade it back.
