Please, dear Arceus, do not allow quiver dance, dragon dance, or shift gear. This cap should not have any move boosting speed as well as any attacking stat. Boosting an attacking stat alone is fine; boosting speed stat alone is fine, but the two together would eliminate alot of the risk this pokemon should have.
I, however, am in favor of boosting defenses. Cotton guard should be allowed as it could be very useful with weak armor Arumoth. The way I see it being used is Arumoth comes in to force a switch (say on Arghonaut) and goes for the cotton guard on the switch giving it a substantial boost. The problem with this however is the fact that the pokemon switched in could be a special attacker; risk. I wish there was a similar move for boosting spdef for the same reason but that is not currently up for discussion.
I also support will-o-wisp and glare being allowed. The fact that I support glare over the other paralyzing moves is mainly for flavor reasons (those eyes...) but I strongly feel this poke should have some status inducing moves as I can see this poke being forced to switch easily (looking at Prankster Tomohawk) and having a lasting advantage would be useful. Also, as Aurumoth has near perfect coverage when using 3 moves, it won't be running 2 status moves. Will-o-wisp could be used to stop physical attackers but not special giving it a bit of risk in just bringing it and glare can be a bit safer option by weakening either special or phyiscal attackers. btw I feel these are the only status moves Aurumoth should have but I know most would disagree.
Tl;Dr just read the bold... duh...
I want to say I get more stupid everyday, but it would make me stupid to admit that... Irony...
