So I recently decided to replay through Platinum alongside some friends and I wanted to give my Roserade Leaf Storm and Spikes. I bred a Roselia with a Victreebel that knew Leaf storm and that worked out fine and now I'm trying to breed the offspring of the first pairing with a Cacturne that knows spikes, but every time I hatch a Budew all it knows is Absorb and Spikes but not Leaf Storm. Any idea why?

If the father or, starting in Generation VI, the mother knows any specific Egg Moves that the baby can learn, the baby will inherit the move.

Platinum is before gen 6, so mothers can't pass egg moves in Platinum. I'm pretty sure the specific combination of spikes and leaf storm is incompatible on Roserade in Platinum.

I only just noticed that you replied to my second question XD Thank you again, you're awesome
Sorry that wasn't for you HorrorMGAfan19, that was for Dracovish. I was basically telling him flags have different meanings and to use his brain for a sec before asking why it was flagged because it's lowkey annoying
Ah gotcha, no worries :)
It's kind of funny how you put in so much effort explaining what the flag was for, but you never just told the Horror person to select this answer.
