I stumbled across a very promising discovery the other day, one that could make Nukenin even more useful than we think.

Upon evolving from Tsuchinin, my Tekkakanin attempted to learn Double Team, Screech, and Fury Cutter. I let it learn Double Team, and then it split off into Nukenin. Final Tekkakanin moveset: Mind Reader, Leech Life, Double Team, and Sand-Attack.

What did the Nukenin have? Mind Reader, Leech Life, Sand-Attack, and Double Team.

Know what this means? Nukenin can do SO much more now! Give me Agility, and I'll Grudge the PP out of your Flamethrower\Drill Peck\whatever. With Swords Dance, Nukenin can utterly sweep the opposing team (provided said team is ill-equipped to deal with a Nukenin).

And since I think this discovery is ground-breaking, I'm giving this one the sexy purple arrow.

Yeah, I knew that for about two weeks.

The sad thing about this is that Nukenin can only get one of Tekkanin's natural moves, i.e. the one it learns when it evolves. Nukenin won't sweep anything with its pathetic speed, and if it gets swords dance, it can't get agility. Perhaps a BP chain...

But yeah, swords dance/shadow ball/silver wind/something was my favorite Nukenin moveset, although I don't think it would really be useful. Oh well, who knows...

It's been known since RuSa came out that Nukenin gets the same m-set as the Tekkanin had. Not really that new.

Really, huh? Gee... I would've thought that if people knew more often, they'd start using Agility + Grudge Nukenins.

Okay, so let me get this straight: When Tsuchinin evolves at level 20, it becomes Tekkanin, who then learns three moves. Tekkanin then "splits" into a Tekkanin and a Nukenin, the latter of which gets one of the three Tekkanin moves.

Did I get that right?

Oh, and memo to Dark Heracross: quit dumping on other people's contributions.

Nukenin will get the same exact moveset as Tekkanin. So if you evolve Tsuchinin at level... er... 35, I think, it will evolve into Tekkanin which will then learn Swords Dance as a level-up move. The resulting Nukenin will have Swords Dance in its moveset.

You could also breed BP onto Tsuchinin, and when it evolves into Tekkanin/Nukenin, it'll have one of the numerous boosting moves, like Agility or Swords Dance. Good for setting up, since there's not much that can hit it.

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs, huge erections, and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Exactly. And since you can put off Tsuchinin's evolution until it reaches some level where Tekkakanin learns some useful move, Nukenin can basically get any move in the Tekkakanin level-up list - one at a time, of course.

So if you evolve Tsuchinin at level... er... 35

Level 25, actually.

You could also breed BP onto Tsuchinin...

Breed BP? I wish. Sadly, you can't. Not one of its bred moves.

You can breed a move a pokemon learns if both the parents are the same species and have the move. 1 BP Tekkanin + 1 BP Tekkanin = 1 BP Tsuchinin

It will only work for moves Tsuchinin learns. Tsuchinin doesn't learn baton pass.
