It might be the most useless thing outside of Truant.

I tried using one. It failed.
STAB Quick Attack. Staraptor.
Also Pinsir now I guess. It's not gen V anymore.

Doesn't it pretty much buff up Defenses when below half health? Sounds like an inverse Defeatist, and just as useless

Truant isn't useless. It's certainly not beneficial, but it does have its use, which is to balance what would otherwise be a completely broken Pokemon.

Zen Mode Darmanitan on the other hand is a completely useless joke form, which is massively outclassed by Sheer Force and actually hampers its user more than anything else.
Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.

Special attack becomes massive. I'm gonna do something with it, and post a replay later. I'm thinking of a custap berry set. (Note I don't think this will be good at all)

Yeah but the point of Defeatist was to intentionally limit Archeops' viability.

This is like... they tried to make a good Pokemon and failed horribly.

They were smoking a mix of Nintendium,some random torn pieces of paper,probably one of their important documents,powdered milk and a crushed piece of a crystal ball.

Doesn't it loose the form switch if it's HP goes back up?

Zen mode needs to be changed to be always active. That way you can opt to use either form and aren't kinda forced to use both at once.

Darmanitan is at least partially based off of Blinky, the red ghost from Pac-Man. I'll link you all to my compilation of evidence once I get home- right now I only got my 3DS XL to post from.

It's pretty interesting actually. The fact that darmanitan turns from a special attack into a special one. I don't use darmanitan, but if I was to use it, it'd be because of that reason
