Fast TM on L/BS Snorlax or P/DG Blissey?

I have both a high IV Snorlax & and high IV Blissey with the above movesets. Worth a quick TM to get Zen Headbutt for either of them?

Assuming both have decent IVs and both would be used for defense, I think trying to get a ZH-DG Blissey is highest priority.

ZH-DG Blissey is the best defensive pokemon and moveset in the game. And it SUCKS to go up against it.

ZH-BS snorlax also sucks to go up against, but not as much as that Blissey.

I don't care about defense. But if OP wants to use a TM on a Snorlax or a Blissey, two mons that have absolutely no use on offense, clearly OP cares about defense.

And I'm answering with defense in mind as a result. ZH-DG Blissey is objectively the best defender and moveset in the game, even if defense means nothing now.

I agree with fast TM of Blissey. I want my best defenders to defend better. I am in a moderately fast turnover area, I want to protect my gyms--they give me more items. I need potions more than coins.

I'm also in a very fast turnover area, but what people put in doesn't matter, pidgeys last 1 minute less than blisseys.
Also, a gym without a blissey goes down very very fast here. But even if there's a blissey, no one cares about her moveset.

The only real Use of blissey is when you want to be a douche. Somebody kicks out my 10CP pidgey right away; put in a 2900CP blissey and just throw berries at it continually when the person tries to take it down

When I take a gym, I put a Blissey in, it sets the tone to the other players that we aren't trying to purposely lose what little control we've managed. All for some nickels.

The way the gyms are set up now no defender is worth it.

I agree with everyone else that until the game changes again requiring half decent defenders, you shouldn't use TMs on any of them...

Also, moves can change so Zh/DG could be bad with a single move change (Gen 3 probably?)...

No point in burning a TM at this point in the game for minor benefits...Berry defense will work a lot better as well than simply changing it's moveset.

The only use for a blissey is to hold a gym you have taken over right before a raid. It takes so much longer to kill even with appropriate counters, that it'll usually last the 3-5 minutes before the raid starts, adding a few berries would help that cause as well.
