I felt like my answers could vary depending on the situation, so I took it twice, changing between the two answers that could've worked on a hand few of the questions. First time, I got Meowth! Second, I got Cubone. Neat!

Thanks for the info! I'm actually planning to remove the "True Metronome" option and its associated information when I revise this tool. I don't imagine very many people use that mode, and while it's possible to find lists of which moves are/aren't callable on Bulbapedia, they don't cite sources on them and I've found way too much inaccurate game mechanic info on Bulbapedia to feel confident about them. In general there doesn't seem to have been much serious research done on metronome since Gen V, and I wouldn't want to offer a "true metronome" option unless I felt pretty confident it would actually behave the same as in the games.
