One day I decided to battle the Elite 4 again. I got up to Flint and he sent out Rapidash. I switched my Empoleon with Giratina and Rapidash started to ABSORB LIGHT! I don't get this. How can a fire pokemon know a grass move?

Not sure it can, maybe it's a glitch, or maybe rapidash is the only fire pokemon who can learn a fire move, you can check psypokes.com

I think Charizard can learn SolarBeam as well...well fire pokemon can learn the move Sunny Day..so think about it.

And don't forget Entei. Groudon also learns it, even though it's ground.

I just checked pe2k's pokedex and it can't, maybe in D/P it can

Solarbeam means Sunbeam so i belive that Rapidash can do it because the sun is fire

Oh yeah I checked Serebii.net and it says Rapidash learns it by TM. This can be locked now.

Acctually the sun isnt made of fire. The nuclear reactions that constantly happen in it release so much energy and heat that everything is in a gas or plasma state.

But yes Rapidash can learn solar beam in D/P

Besides Solarbeam sucking on Rapidash royally, think about it...

Solar energy derives from the Sun. The Sun is a massive ball of Fire.

So let me ask you this, why can't Fire types learn Solarbeam? (And don't argue with me, I know there's some that can't, but I'm proving a point)

Oh for pete's sake! :rolleyes:

I just checked on D/P, and almost every Fire Pokemon there is can learn solarbeam! Talk about cheap... :tongue:

Makes it interesting now, because a lot of Fire types are always negated by rock or water types. And then, since there is only Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape and Ponyta/Rapidash as the Fire types in the original Sinnoh Pokedex, and with a hoarde of Water, Ground, and Rock types against them, Solarbeam would be a good idea to negate their own weakness against them with an attack they are weak to.

But most water cans learn ice moves, which gives them the edge on grass types ;) and a lot of grasses learn some rock moves that are good against fire.

And yes, Rapidash can use Solar Beam. Just like Infernape can somehow learn earthquake... Killed my Empoleon one hit with an earthquake :(

Ah! Brilliant. It appears that we've gotten an interesting advantage. Now I'm wondering if using a Infernape/Rapidash and a Groudon/Sunny Day Poke wouldn't be that bad of an idea in the BT. *is currently obsessed*

But yeah, the sun is not made of fire. But Solarbeam would make sense, considering the heat from the sun can cause fire, such as in the case of brushfire. I'm such a nerd. :3

Blaziken can learn EQ as well, unless I'm wrong.

And a Sunbeaming Rapidash is far from sucky. I usually start with my Rapidash, use Sunny Day while the opponent's switching out for their water type, then... well... Miracle Seed + Solarbeam = OHKO.

Sunny Day weakens water type attacks, as well. (Right?)

Using Venusaur456's logic...:

I can say this:


OH MY GOD, BULBASAUR LEARNS TACKLE! HOW?!

Rapidash can learn it. Think about it. All it is is using sunlight to make a beam of sunlight infact it should be a fire type attack
