Why can Ampharos learn Reflect by breeding but not by TM?

I find this weird since it is usually the other way around...

To make it more challenging to get a move onto him it the simplest explanation, Gamefreak most likely just wanted it to be a bit more of a Challenge to get Reflect onto your Ampharos.

I assure its not a glitch in the site, As Serebii says it also.

But in complete, Its just how it is,

Gamefreak Made it that way :]

Yeah, I knew it wasn't a glitch, because I tried to teach him both :) And that's how you do it people! UpVote AND Best Answer :)
As of Generation V though, Cotton Guard would be a much more effective move on Ampharos' part.  Brick Break or the Ability Infiltrator can negate or bypass the effects of Reflect.  Good question though, I was wondering as well!
