I could picture what foresight looked like but all I was coming up with was "forclosure" which I know perfectly well isn't a move. And, Rachel24601, you should really put a warning about what generation this quiz is based off of somewhere.

Done. :-)

More than just Castform can learn Weather Ball, I'm pretty sure Victreebell, Raikou, Roserade and more get it.
Level 41

Plus mew can get it too :)
Level 23
Jul 18, 2012
Mew can learn anything lol..
Level 6
Apr 17, 2014
That is a lie. Mew does NOT learn Weather Ball, Sacred Fire, Aeroblast, Judgement, Shadow Force, Roar of Time, Spacial Rend, etc.
Level 12

I wish that were true
Level 62

Mew can only learn moves that can be taught by TM's, tutors and by its level uo moveset
Level 32
Jan 16, 2018
Mew learns every TM, not every move. Smeargle comes closest to learning every move by learning every move except Chatter and Struggle through Sketch. Therefore, it gets a STAB judgement, and can learn all the other moves.
Level 32

Also, Metronome can be nice sometimes allowing Mew to USE every move in the game, just not LEARN every move.
Level 59
Jul 25, 2012
Based on the fact Sketch is on here, Smeargle can also learn Weather Ball.
Level 21
Jul 30, 2012
Mew and Zorua can transform too
Level 6
Apr 17, 2014
For Zorua that's just it's ability. But yes, Mew can also Transform.
Level 21
Jul 30, 2012
Explosion should also be added
Level 71
Jun 10, 2014
Yeah, Electrode learns that too, and it does the same thing.
Level 53
Oct 23, 2016
Maybe it didn't exist as a move back when the quiz maker started pretending that no new Pokemon were "real".
Level 51
Apr 10, 2020
In the anime, voltorb is the one that uses self-destruct most of the time, whereas electrode does indeed use explosion.

for creating a quiz, does anybody know how to add more answer boxes?

well... Roserade can learn weatherball.
Level 57

I wouldn't say tackle is a favourite of Rattatas. All I could come up with was growl, scratch, and super fang. Does Rattata even know Tackle?
Level 12

i kept using superpower for strength and was so annoyed when it didnt work
Level 24

foresight doesn't raise evasiveness, it lowers the opponents evasiveness
Level 15
Aug 8, 2022

Level 38

Fake tears is a fairy type move not dark so plese change that.
Level 54
Oct 17, 2023
No, Fake Tears has always been a dark type move. You might be thinking of Baby-Doll Eyes, which is a Fairy type status move that lowers Sp.Atk
Level 14
Nov 14, 2017
Amazing idea but kept putting hydro pump for hydro cannon and I always put snatch for thief
Level 45
Nov 22, 2017
Why only gen 1-3? I demand an explanation!
Level 18
Nov 26, 2018
Nice quiz! I made my own, too! It contains all 742 moves from the main series games! You should try it out!

Also, the move Thief, when used, will always take the opponent's item.

Level 24
Oct 21, 2019
I don't think Foresight actually increases the user's evasiveness. It "removes" the target's evasiveness (or negates it somehow).

This quiz is so easy plz make it harder
Level 33

Assist’s description should be changed; it can also be used in single battles; leaving it to double battles only is kind of misleading
Level 67
Dec 27, 2021
Can only manage to get half of them, used to be obsessed with this type of stuff
Level 40

-Weather Ball is learnt by many different Pokémon, and it doesn't change any condition, it adapts to the current weather.

-Assist can be used in single battles as well.

-Fake Tears lowers special defense.

-Thief doesn't have a 40% chance of stealing opponent's item: it either does or doesn't, depending if the user has an item or not.

-Foresight doesn't raise evasiveness, it only bypasses the accuracy check.

I know I'm being a nerd, but I don't like this many mistakes when the quiz is featured. If it were just a standalone quiz, I'd have no problem with it.

This comment will probably not matter anyway, considering this quiz hasn't been updated in nearly a decade, but it was worth trying.

Quiz is 10 years outdated, and is just plain easy. Quizzes should really be forced to update if they've been abandoned for so damn long, and deleted if they don't update.
