    I think Tclap would work well as coverage on a bunch of nonelectric types who could probably stomp loudly such as Ponyta, Rhyhorn, Tauros, Kingler, kangaskhan, Geodude (both), Meganium, Azumarill, Girafarig, Phanpy, Tyranitar, Marshtomp, Hariyama...


    I think I made my point, so you all get the idea. Give it TM style distribution for great coverage on say, Klingklang, Glalie, Beartic, Barbaracle, Golisopod, Samurott and so on.

    In the term of Forecast, I'd give it to one of the Tornaduses. Probably Incanate.

    Time Warp for Celebi and Dialga for sure. I don't remember anyone else who has a relation to time.

    Knight's Blade for the Sword Of Justice, Samurott's line (HA), and Mega Gallade. I'd say Aegislash but you can't really remove it's ability.

    Corrosion should probably stay for Sala line only. I can't think of anything else to get it. At the max, Garbodor.



    Teleport for Mew and Mewtwo for teleporting in the movies. Edit: Actually they already have it. Oh, btw, for whatever reason Arcanine has Teleport in vanilla

    For Slipstream, give it to the Route Birds, Fearow, Crobat, the Legendary Birds, Skarmory, Pelipper, Altaria, Tropius, Rauquaza, Honchkrow, Chatot, Swanna, Emolga, Braviary, Madibuzz, Hawlucha, maybe Garchomp, Lati@s, Reshiram and Lunala

    For Plume Cannon, anything with plumes, really.

    List of mons I counted that have plumes (open)

    Pidgey line, Spearow line, Farfetch'd, Dodrio line, Articuno, Noctowl Line, Togectic/Togekiss, Natu line, Murkrow line, Delibird, (Do Skarmory's blades count as Plumes?), Ho-Oh, Swollow line, Wingull Line, Starly line, Chatot, Pidove line, Sigilyph, Archen line, Ducklett Line, Rufflet line, Vullaby line, Therian Tornadus, Fletchling Line, Hawlucha, Rowlet line, Toucannon, Oricorio, Blaziken Line, White Kyurem, Reshiram, Piplup Line (We're having a case of Iron Tail Primeape here since it loses it's plumes when it evolves but still has the move from the pre-evo), Hydreigon, Mega Absol (Hard to tell what to do since the base doesn't have plumes), Drampa, Dunsparce


    Thunder Clap for Electivire, Koko, Eelektross, Zebstrika, Rapidash, Mudsdale, the Swords of Justice, Zapdos, Raikou, Hariyama, *maybe* Kyogre

    Haunting Scream for Gengar line, Mismagius, Gardevoir, Exploud, Chatot, Hoopas, Giratinas

    I'll give some ideas based in dex description, more incoming!

    Corrosion

    Dragalge (Omega Ruby) "Their poison is strong enough to eat through the hull of a tanker, and they spit it indiscriminately at anything that enters their territory."

    Muk (DPP) "A toxic fluid seeps from its body. The fluid instantly kills plants and trees on contact." That reminds me acid rain, which is corrosive.

    Swalot (HG/SS) "It gulps anything that fits in its mouth. Its special enzymes can dissolve anything."

    Victreebel (X) "Once ingested into this Pokémon's body, even the hardest object will melt into nothing."

    Haunting scream

    Gourgeist (not that it can be too helpful for it, but it fits) (Pokemon X) "Singing in eerie voices, they wander town streets on the night of the new moon. Anyone who hears their song is cursed."

    If Corrosion was regular Muk only, that'd give it a leg to stand on compared to its Alolan form, which shot up many tiers because of a better typing.

    TBH I don't think the Boomburst mons should get it except Exploud. And I can't see how the Pikachu line and Togedemaru could even use it. I'm fine with everything else though.

    Sandstorms, which Flygon is heavily linked to, can actually form lightning, so I think Thunderclap makes sense on it.

    Knight's Blade: I stick by everything I suggested (Mega Gallade (regular can have it, too, but giving it to Mega Gallade is OU relevant), Absol (Mega?), Honedge and Doublade, Farfetch'd, Escavalier, Pawniard line, Kabutops, Oshawott line, Fomantis line). I also like the idea of giving it to the Swords of Justice.

    Forecast: Castform (duh) and Maractus, and idk what else tbh.

    Time Warp: Celebi, Dialga, maybe Beheeyem for viability's sake


    Haunting Scream: Gourgeist makes perfect sense. Othe Ghost that could have it include Gengar, Mismagius, Spiritomb, Cofagrigus, Banette, and Froslass. Also, maybe Primarina and Chatot as it could be a sad or scary song?

    Teleport: Everything that gets it before (including from Gen 1, so yay Teleport Magmortar), Reuniclus maybe

    More descriptions to justify the abilities!

    Time Warp

    Gardevoir (Alpha Saphire) "Gardevoir has the psychokinetic power to distort the dimensions and create a small black hole. This Pokémon will try to protect its Trainer even at the risk of its own life." being able to create a black hole means it's able to distort time and space, so I guess Time Warp is kind of fitting.

    Xatu could be kind of related due to its strong relation with the ability to be able to see past and future and same time according to Pokemon X description "They say that it stays still and quiet because it is seeing both the past and future at the same time." but it probably would be kind of forced, you decide.

    I like Yoshiblaze's idea of putting it to Beheeyem for competitive reasons, that'd make it a great late-game sweeper or a "fast" wallbreaker

    Haunting Scream

    Mismagius (Alpha Saphire) "Its cries sound like incantations to torment the foe. It appears where you least expect it."

    Not dex related, but if Meloetta gets Haunting Scream, it'd bet a powerful niche, 60% of chance to put Perish Soung counter would be actually powerful for a specially defensive set.

    Hariyama could get Thuderclap because of high strength and huge hands.

    I don't think that's a smart idea, Politoed for example for sure shouldn't learn it

    Kricketune used Haunting Scream! It was super effective!

    But seriously, what exactly is Thunderclap supposed to be? Is it just the booming sound of thunder used as an attack or any loud noise that sounds like thunder?


    Edit: Also, I just searched up “Pokemon associated with time” and found a Bulbapedia page on time travel in the anime: There was an ADV-era episode where a Baltoy used time travel to rescue its past self and an XY-era episode where a Rotom sent Ash and the gang back into the past to change the past. So maybe Baltoy/Claydol and Rotom should also get the Time Warp ability?

    A lot of amorphous mons look like they'd be screamers. Like Eelektross, that mouth looks like its screams would give nightmares and Spiritomb and Palossand.. Also Zu/Golbat looks like a screamer.

    Maybe golurk could work with thunder clap? When i hear thunder clap i think of a shock wave of sorts, so pokemon capable of causing earthquakes could work. Also golurk has some sort of energy sealed within itself. Maybe that energy is some sort of electrical charge?

    I believe it's supposed to be the sound of lightning when it hits the ground, which would work for storm based pokemon and stuff. sooo

    Kind of makes sense for golurk then. It can also learn thunder punch and thunderbolt.
