Because it's a physical attacker and learning them would be pointless...?
Gamefreak wanted it to be physical. Talonflame using a special move would be weird. But however, Talonflame can learn Flamethrower. A good physical move for it is Flare Blitz.

One thing might be the fact that talonflame is also a bird (flying type), so I wouldn't expect it to be able to use eruption or inferno.

Also, talonflame is more of a physical attacker than a special attacker, but it can still use flamethrower and fire blast.

Hope I was helpful!
