So I was told on Showdown! that the server appears to think that Hydro Pump and Bug Buzz are an illegal combination, when this should not be the case. And yeah, it does seem that this illegality exists where it should not. Just making a note of this here in case I forget to bring it up later, so somebody else can tell Zarel or whoever in that eventuality
- Bulky 4 Attacks Aurumoth is a liability, though I haven't tried it with Illusion
- I'm struggling to find opportunities to set up with QD Aurumoth, or indeed any set-up sweeper variant of Aurumoth, though I haven't tried Illusion
- Essentially Illusion appears to have all the advantages for most sets. On the plus side, we seem to be learning just how nasty Illusion can be...
- Notably, I've lost games that I've had in the bag because of Illusion, or rather, because of Showdown - I've simply assumed that discrepancies in HP were PS glitches, totally forgetting the possibility that it could be an Aurumoth in disguise (man, I am never going to get over that)
In short, lots of interesting psychological doodads to play around with. Also, I'd encourage people to try using sets other than QD, as that kind of experience is infinitely more valuable from the point of view of an analysis writer.
