Isn’t the move “Crunch” unnecessary to have, as we’ve got the move “Bite”?

by
Bite is usually learned at lower levels, and crunch has higher base power.
I see, thank you.
I see it as crunch is the more powerful version of bite like it is in real life.

Both moves have different purposes.

Bite:

Has a 30% chance to flinch the opponent.

Crunch:
Base 80 power.
Has 20% chance to lower the opponents defence stat.
