Okay, I'm kind of confused on this one. On showdown I've been using this team w/ roserade and I've never had any problems using it until now. It says that roserade can't have sleep powder because it's incompatible with another move?

My roserade knows,
- Giga Drain
- Sleep Powder
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Spikes.

Is Spikes + Sleep Powder illegal to have?

how did you get that moveset anyway?

Spikes and Sleep powder are illegal together because they can not be bred onto the same Roserade. This is because Roserade needs to get Spikes from the Catcurne/Glalie/Maractus/Ferrothorn Family and Sleep powder from the Venesaur/Gloom/Victreebell/Tangrowth/Jumpluff family. Source

Now they can be in the same moveset though, as females can transfer egg moves in X/Y.
