im gonna say durants is worse with truant but they both suck
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I think its mad funny that this is one of the only instances in the entire franchise of a Legendary's ability being distributed and it had to be Slow Start of all things
 
Tenho 85% de cttz q algum fodao da Pokemon Company odiou muito o Revavroom e o Varoom e fez o possível pra fude ele pq todo o resto da equipe gostou

At least it changes it for a far better ability when it evolves.
 
Genre là ça lui a mit début calme juste pour la vanne que c’est un moteur ???
 
 
Actually I'd have to disagree
While Varoom does have a dogshit hidden ability, because it gains filter, a fantastic hidden ability, upon evolving, I can't realistically call this the worst

It's still truant Durant and that's still factoring the entrainment gimmick
 
At least once evolving it gets Filter which is an insanely good ability
 
It's called flavour. Some pokémon get certain abilities, moves or types just for flavour. A creature based on a an engine getting Slow Start is fitting and genius. Someone at GF has a good sense of humour.
 
 
 
WHY WOULD YOU GIVE AN ENGINE THE REGIGIGAS TREATMENT WTF GF
 
In reply to @ActualAero
The best part that no one else is noticing is that its other ability also literally does nothing for it, since they changed hail to snow, now the only weather than damages you is sand, but its already a steel type, so there isnt any weather damage for overcoat to protect it from
 
still my fav Pokémon from the new Gen. The people @ game freak just have a sense of humor and gave it a realistic hidden ability. They made up for it with revavroom’s hidden ability too anyways lol
 
In reply to @ActualAero
At least it loses Slow Start and gets a GREAT ability in replacement (Filter)
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Bruh. WHY!? Who thought this was a good idea for a hidden ability!?
 
Ainda bem que não é pro Revavroom
 
In reply to @ActualAero
This is the worst Pokémon design in human history this goes right next to the key Pokémon
 
Wait I thought Slow Start was exclusive to Regigigas-
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
LMAO IT HAS OVERCOAT AS A STEEL TYPE
 
In reply to @ActualAero
He’s trying his best ok
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I really love this species and was hoping it would get one more evolution above Revavrom where it would go full car like... Wario's car.
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Thankfully, Revaroom's hidden ability is Filter, so Slow Start doesn't carry over.
 
In reply to @ActualAero
i don’t know what stats that pokémon has but Trick Room + Spe Attack could work right?
 
In reply to @ActualAero
"it takes five tries to start the engine"......seems legit for a "car" pokemon

In reply to @ActualAero
Does ability swap drop it or nah
 
In reply to @ActualAero
well doest it change when it evolves into something really good tho?
 
In reply to @ActualAero
What does slow start do omg
 
In reply to @ActualAero
What... Why does it have this...
 
In reply to @ActualAero
then it get filter after evolve
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Imagine getting good ivs and nature and the ability is slow start 😭
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I can't believe Durant has Truant of all things, but this is somehow worse. Maybe there'll come a day where a pokemon with Defeatist comes along again, but that won't be as bad as this.
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
If this thing can have slow start, regigigas can have a New ability like clear body
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Unless this thing can learn skill swap yeah its useless
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Which concussion did they suffer that made them think ANY of this was a good idea!?
 
In reply to @ActualAero
It looks like a fuckin bong
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I like that I said my opinion about an ability and are mad because I don’t think like they do bet they are same people who needs legendaries in normal play through a like they did in arceus and still got beat lol
 
In reply to @ActualAero
now if only they'd invent a trick room to reverse stat changes...
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Are we 100% sure slow start still works the same? I know other abilities (eg. protean) got changed this gen. It probably does, I'm sure people have checked - I'm just double checking someone has checked :/
 
In reply to @ActualAero
When it evolves it gets filter which I guess is not bad
 
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
That's .... That's not a real pokemon, is it?
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I love slow start, wouldn’t that make blaziken or greninja broken? 😂😂😂
 
In reply to @ActualAero
If it were only speed, you could have at least something like gyro ball, or trick room setups. But the attack halved it's shit.
 
In reply to @ActualAero
If it makes you feel any better, when you evolve it, the ability becomes Filter
 
In reply to @ActualAero
They actualky gave slow start to something as an alt ability? 😂 Like.. who would ever want this?
 
In reply to @ActualAero
This is actually an Easter egg
 
In reply to @ActualAero
i guess could work with gyro ball if it even learns it. otherwise total crap. although, Archeops still wins with its Defeatist ability being its only option
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Atleast it isnt their normal ability
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Does he at least get Entrainment like Truant Durant has?
 
Primeiro que o fudido que deu a ideia de fazer um pokémon MOTOR tinha que ser executado
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Not true, durant's hidden ability is truant.
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Imagine being the poor bastard who caught a shiny one and give it its hidden ability just to see what it is because the games don't let you switch back you're hidden abilities with a regular one
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
They definitely did it for the meme a motor having a slow start… COMEDIC GENIUS… it’s terrible. 🧍🏻‍♂️
 
In reply to @ActualAero
why not just give it filter, like it's evolution...?
 
Varoom and it’s evolution we’re already my least favourite Gen 9 Pokémon. This makes it go from simply being disliked by me to being both disliked and ridiculed by me.
 
In reply to @ActualAero
At least it’s clever
 
In reply to @ActualAero
I feel like it’s an engine joke
 
In reply to @ActualAero
From what I know, that ability synergizes with a move it can learn that is more powerful the slower it is. (Or was it when it attacks last?)
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Congratulations Varoom from Pokemon Scarlet & Violet for winning the award for absolute worst design ever
 
In reply to @ActualAero
don’t fucking talk bad about my boy
 
In reply to @ActualAero
It becomes filter which is really good I guess
 
In reply to @ActualAero
imagine getting a shiny one with perfect ivs just for it to have slow sort
 
In reply to @ActualAero
At least it's evolutions abilty changes, but game freak really missed it from giving its hidden ability speed boost
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Hey at least it turns into filter eventually! Thats a pretty decent ability!
 
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Wait are you serious why did they even bother???
 
In reply to @ActualAero
i mean it turns into filter when it evolves so it’s kinda worth it
 
At least when it evolves it changes to something useful. Imagine if it stayed that
 
In reply to @ActualAero
Actually, is a good one, when your Varoom evolves, it gets Filter!
