Blastoise doesn't normally learn Blizzard nor Ice Beam, by leveling up. But if you teach it Bubble beam when it was still a Squirtle, it will learn the two said moves.

It seems that Bubble Beam also gets an upgrade from pokemon that evolves thus allowing you to learn those two other moves a pokemon wouldn't normally learn by simply leveling up.

With that said, is there any sites that shows a list of these moves upgrade from evolving pokemon?

EDIT: This was on the generation 1 (Pokemon yellow to be exact)

    You might want to indicate the specific game or generation you're talking about. – Toomai Jul 7 '12 at 23:46

    I've never heard of learned attacks changing based on what attacks the pokemon already knows. I'll reiterate Toomai - what specific game or generation are you talking about? – Raven Dreamer Jul 8 '12 at 14:37

Bulbapedia indicates that Blizzard and Ice Beam can not be learned by a gen 1 Blastoise by levelling up, at all. It can only be taught those moves by using a TM.

There are some pokemon who learn a move by levelling up in some of their basic evolutions that they cannot learn in a higher evolution. For example Raichu cannot learn Slam, but it can have the move if you levelled it up to level 20 as a pikachu before evolving. This is the closest equivalent to that which you describe.

  • I will try my best to replicate this situation again. My savefile indeed has Blastoise learn both moves even though I only have him learn the Bubble Beam TM and Surf HM. – user29674 Jul 10 '12 at 2:24
  • @patcol are you playing the actual (cartridge) game, or a ROM? – DisgruntledGoat Jul 16 '12 at 14:06
  • Actual cartridge, bad news though. There seems to be some problem on my cart. The cart doesn't seems to be able to hold any saves files anymore and whenever I turn off or reset the game, the save file get lost too. – user29674 Jul 21 '12 at 8:01

    @patcol The internal battery on the cart is dead. I believe it uses some standard battery, so you should be able to buy a replacement, open the cart, and replace the battery – Macha Jul 21 '12 at 11:28
