Why do some moves have so much PP?

Like Leer has 48 with a PP max I think. What's the point in that much? It's not like your going to use the move 48 times or something.

I think it's because if you're new to Pokemon you wouldn't know to go back and heal all the time, so to prevent newcomers from struggling (quite literally) they gave the moves a lot of PP so you could have more battles before healing.

I always wondered about this. Thanks a lot!
Happy to help!
I would have thought it was more of a balancing type of thing :/ a example would be say... Sacred Fire. 5 pp, for a 100 power move, with 95% chance to hit. But Idk :/ Could just be me.
