This poll is now closed.
so basically, would you rather deal with truant on your slaking or try to stall for 5 turns on your regigigas

it seems like slow start would just get your regigigas killed before it could do anything useful whereas atleast slaking could OHKO a pokemon before being walled by protect or something
I'm back to LoL for now (I also like maplestory and cabal online)
my internet is garbage again, but I'll try to manage and get my MMO fix.

With Truant, you at least have one immediate turn of usefulness.

With Slow Start, you will never last long enough to become useful.

Truant. It be' far easier to play around, an' doesn't require ye to waste moveslots on stalling moves like Protect an' Substitute.

Slow Start, regigigas can still be played bulky parafusion while Slaking is stopped completely by protect.

Voted 'other' because every single other Ability is better than them.

Anyway, they do actually have situations where they're not as terrible as you'd think. Slow Start could actually help a super slow Special Attacker like Reuniclus because it'd be better under Trick Room. Truant basically requires you to use a Choice item since you're really only gonna get one attack off and wouldn't really be all that bad if you plan on spamming Volt Switch/U-turn.

Truant can be removed with Mummy. The effects of Slow Start stay if you remove it and the effects won't be removed even after five turns (if I remember my obscure ability mechanics correctly).
