First of all, Amnesia Tangela is a great big barrel of laughs in RBY, what with 900 power Health-restoring Mega Drains.

However, it seems that every time I get it successfully set up, a Charizard comes in and quickly criticals it.

Thus, another Elemental attack on board would be a great asset. However, Tangela's only other option would be Confusion. Good enough, I think.

During the past twenty minutes, I tried looking up a way to get both moves onto Tangela at the same time. I had to figure out how Amnesia got there in the first place (through Hoppip, the only way) and Hoppip bred for Confusion as well. So, Tangela could easily get Confusion and Amnesia from Hoppip, if only they both weren't breed moves for Hoppip as well.

This is as far as I've gotten:
Tangela is group 7 only.
Hoppip is group 6/7.

As far as I know, the only Pokémon who CAN have Amnesia and Confusion at once are Girafarig (5), Smeargle (5), Slowpoke (1/2) and Nidoran (1/5), meaning breeding with either Tangela or Hoppip is impossible. Is there any I'm missing?

Confusion would be pretty useless without Amnesia...

I came to this same conclusion a while back. Itr looks like the closest thing you can have on Tangela is Growth and Confusion. It's slower, so you're less likely to get it up.

And yes, you forgot Golduck (Stadium Prize) and Mewtwo (move relearner.) But that makes little difference for breeding to Tangela.
