When making a Toxicroak, i tried to teach it Drain Punch, but it said it can't learn it.

My planned Toxicroak for a future Rain Team

Toxicroak (M) @ Black Sludge/ Big Root
Trait: Dry Skin
Nature: Jolly (+Spd, -SAtk)

EV Spread:
4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spd

  • Bulk Up
  • Drain Punch
  • Ice Punch/Sucker Punch
  • Retaliate

PokemonDB/ Toxicroak
Bulbapedia/ Toxicroak
Both these sites say he learns this move vis breeding. Is there some type of clause i don't know about to prevent an HP monster or a glitch or some other thing??

reopened by
I'm not sure but I looked at toxicroaks page where it says that toxicroak could learn ice punch with 4th gen tutor but ... toxicroak can not learn drain punch through breeding in 4th gen so ... if anyone has it then it is illegal

Ok ive looked into this for you as heatran507 mentioned 4th gen

So this awsome toxicroak can not be done, if you check on po it says its a 4th gen move tutor move and drain punch is a egg move.
So i checked its egg moves and it learns it through breeding with a male meinshao and meinfoo Sorry if spelt wrong*
So there is your problem the pokemon it breeds with are from gen 5.

how do you put a pic.
...which move is the 4G tutor you are referring to?
@RP: Click the photo icon at the top of the answer box and type the website of which the picture was found.
Ice punch is the 4th gen move where as drain punch is the egg move
Oh, I see now! I wish I could have one of these too :(

Okay, this is now legal in B2/W2.

Just go to Move Tutors in there. They teach both Drain and Ice Punches to Toxicroak. Or you can breed a Toxicroak with Drain Punch and then teach it Ice Punch via Tutor.

so the updated PO you can do this set
