"Team Preview" + Zoroark Coincidence?

Recommended Posts

It just occured to me, that team preview being implemented, also indirectly nerfs Zoroark's illusion ability, by simply exposing him at the start of a battle. Just wondering, was this intentional?


Thank you.

This way you know someone has Zoroark on their team, but it doesn't break the ability does it? If you saw two of the same Pokemon on someone's team in a competitive battle you'd know they had Zoroark anyway since Unique Species Clause exists. You still won't know it's Zoroark until you inflict damage on the Pokemon, plus it lets the person with Zoroark choose what Pokemon they want it to disguise as at the start of every battle.

The team preview has allowed me to make good strategies with zoroark, especially when I use it with my tentacruel, avoiding getting hurt by a psychic type attack since zoroark is immune

it was a great implementation.

By the way, here is the template of my zoroark and the tentacruel


Zoroark @ Choice Band  
Ability: Illusion  
EVs: 100 Atk / 228 SpA / 180 Spe  
Hasty Nature  
- Trick  
- U-turn  
- Snarl  
- Flamethrower  


Tentacruel @ Black Sludge  
Ability: Liquid Ooze  
EVs: 252 HP / 240 SpD  
Sassy Nature  
- Toxic  spikes
- Rapid Spin  
- Knock Off  
- Ice Beam
