Very good question.
The Moon was not always tidally locked to Earth, i.e. it did previously rotate more than once each orbit.
how did the moon get it's pockmarks from the side facing earth?
In fact not all craters may be caused by impacts. Most crater shapes could have been caused by plasma discharge currents!

The maria (seas) on the moon are lava fields created by volcanism ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_marehttp://www.sciencemag.org/news/2014/10/recent-volcanic-eruptions-moon
