In White 2, I'm training for the league. My Jellicent (male) has been stuck with Ominous Wind as a STAB ghost move. I looked up when it learns Shadow Ball, which is apparently level 32. My Jellicent is level 51, and I never got an option for it to learn Shadow Ball. I caught it at level nine. What happened? (And I looked up when it learns Shadow Ball in White 2 specifically)
Not sure what source you’re using, but Jellicent learns Shadow Ball at level 32 in Gen 8 only. In Gen 5, Jellicent doesn’t learn Shadow Ball by level up at all, it needs a TM instead.
