What was Game Freak smoking when they thought up Zen Mode Darmanitan?

If Zen Mode healed Darmanitan up to 66% and gave it a slightly better defense boost it could have some use. Darmanitan is frail enough that an attack strong enough to activate Zen Mode will knock it's hp low enough to make Z!Darmanitan's beefy defense boost useless.

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.


Uh, no.

I'm interested to see this proof though.

Hey guys, let's take a Pokemon with fantastic Attack and bad defenses, and turn it into a tank when its HP gets low!

Of course, since we're buffing those defenses, we have to compensate by lowering its Speed a lot, so then it will almost never attack first, and because of it being already at low health, it will most certainly faint immediately. Oh and just to make things interesting, let's make its Special Attack its dominant attacking stat! That way all those physical attacks Darmanitan usually uses will be completely worthless!

^Well, it's basically just an image on which I listed a bunch of facts that all seem to suggest the idea. For one thing, compare a blue, vulnerable, edible Pac-Man ghost to Zenmanitan. Much slower and more defensive than usual, when it's usually all about speed and attacking, and they even look similar, between the blue bodies, the yellow eyes, and the zigzag mouth. If memory serves, there was at least a bit more to it than that, but that point in and of itself is food for thought at the very least, wouldn't you say?

What they should do is just scrap the ability altogether and just give it Darmanitite that has the same effect...

But somehow, I don't think that'd turn out well either.
