    No Guard is severely advantageous in my eyes. Picking No Guard completely removes the risk of innaccurate, powerful moves missing... while removing the opponent's chance to miss is hardly a "risk" since they are already likely to hit anyway. In my eyes, Illusion and Weak Armor are both much more suitable to this particular CAP.

    Both could potentially break this Pokemon imo.

    I'm fine with either this or Weak Armor. Illusion is risky/rewardy and has nice flavor, since it's a Psychic mon. Weak Armor is also risky/rewardy, while being more flavorful on the Bug type side. But I think Illusion would be cooler.

    Edit: Oops :p

    Edit 2: Sorry, I'm just so used to bolding my edits :x

    I like seeing lowly tested given a chance at greatness.

    No Guard

    No Guard removes irrelevant risk - the risk of a move missing, which is explicitly not what we're focusing on - and maximizes our ability to look into other kinds of risk.

    Actually, any of these three will fit this concept just as well as each other in their own way. I just hate it when these polls drag <_<
