Gives 'em the slip..
Shield Dust on Frosmoth is actually useful because it can get a Quiver Dance/Tailwind up even through Fake Out. Also can’t have its stats dropped by Snarl and Icy Wind
People haven’t really caught on to this yet, but Shield Dust (effectively) makes you immune to flinching and freezing as long as the ability is active. All moves that cause these conditions also deal damage, yes, including Fling. And Stench works when a Pokémon attacks while dealing damage. So yes, Frosmoth is immune to flinches, and also has x2 immunity to freezing. Frosmoth is going to be somewhere north of RUBL, I can already tell. And it is damn pretty. Cannot wait to use it in play through.
Also, the more I keep thinking about it the more I’d like the roster to increase post game. We only have access to less than half of all Pokémon and the breeding pools are quite shallow. I will miss a lot of Pokés I’ve (and others) come to love and ones that we had potential to try out in different scenarios. Not a cool move on Game Freak’s behalf.
