Only Victreebel and Shifty can learn Leaf Tornado. You will notice, Victreebel can learn both Acid Spray and Leaf Tornado.

To get Victreebel, you must first capture Bellsprout and collect enough Pokemon Candy (25 Candy) and evolve Bellsprout into Weepingbell. Then repeat the steps to evolve Weepingbell into Victreebel (100 Candy).

The Sun Pokemon Solrock and the Moon Pokémon Lunatone will be switching hemispheres during the Equinox event and will stay put after the event is over. As one side of the world prepares for the long and cold nights, the other side welcomes the warmth of the sun, new life and the sprouting of plants.
