You know what else should get Stall as an ability? Slakoth and Slaking. Sure, it’ll still be a detrimental ability, but it’s got to be worlds better for their viability than Truant, plus it still fits with their ‘powerful but lazy’ motif. Besides, Slaking at least probably has the (physical) bulk to make it work (and it can use Assault Vest or something to patch up its SpD)The ability Stall. In a fangame I caught a Sableye with stall, and stall really sucks. It's so annoying watching my Sableye slowly die to pokemon that it could take out in one hit, making me have to run to a pokemon center more often. I'm currently trying to find a mega stone or ability capsule to use on my Sableye however both items are rare and up to chance. Sableye is the only pokemon with stall but yet it isn't Sableye's only ability which just makes it worse. Why do only some Sableye have stall? What is the reasoning behind any Sableye having stall?
