The reason he can't learn it.

Roost taking away your flying type side, would make you Nothing

You wouldn't have any weaknesses or Resistances, nothing would touch you, do to you not having any type, and with the current style of battling, it would probably glitch up your game like no other, being pretty much the main reason they didn't give this move as an option to him.

Josh, look at this:

Generation V
If a pure Flying-type Pokémon uses Roost, it will become Normal-type until the end of the turn.
in generation IV, the pokemon turned into ??? type
No Pokemon in Gen IV is pure flying type!
