They just reused the sound for the move growl, they usually use their cry, but there's no particular reason.

I never voted you down, I voted you up!
You mean the comment from the last question? that wasn't me, that was the user houndoom, it's been removed anyway.
If you've noticed, it was only in the first generation of games. I think this was because of limited memory space, so they just reused the same cries.
actually, there was enough room left in Gen 1 games to have a pokedex all the way up to torchic.
