This list was prepared in this manner:

  • All Pokemon (except some, see next point) from Generation 5 on wards learn Defog through USUM Move Tutor, and can not learn it any other way, so those from Gen 5 onwards that can learn the move must do so from the latest game onwards.

  • Exceptions to above: Duckleet / Swanna, Rufflet / Braviary, Vullaby / Mandibuzz, Tapu Fini, Kartana (by level up), Archen / Archeops, Rowlett / Dartrix / Decidueye, Fomantis / Lurantis (by breeding).

  • Pokemon that can learn Defog from earlier Generations through the HM are not counted, since it is already coded into their sets. In other words, they did not gain the move.

So, for the list, from Generation 1-4, the list was compared side by side to pick out any that didn't appear in one list but made the other meaning they gained it this generation as no other generation had Defog as a Move Tutor Move.

The rest appearing on the list were removed by checking Pokemon that learned it by Level Up/ Breeding as these too didn't gain the move from USUM onwards.

Sorry I was late on the BA, great answer, thanks!
np, thanks for ba! this took a while to type out each one xD

 honestly i was wondering this too, but was too lazy to check it myself so this was a great opportunity :P

i was so confused the first time someone on PS! used Serperior to Defog, and then the next battle Rotom-W used it :/
