    I have no idea why Vespiquen has Unerve while Combee gets Hustle.

    Vespiquen, as a species, are unnerving and Combee, as a species, need to hustle to get all the work done as little worker bees for their unnerving queen.

    Well, an alternative could've been to have Truant Heatmor while Durant gets Heatproof, so it's like Durant dream of outmatching Heatmor which would've gotten lazy at how easy it gets food.
    Although White Smoke is a good ability, and Heatproof Durant could've ended a bit too strong. So I guess it's fine this way.

    Pretty sure Durant getting Truant was only because of the stupid irony of a lazy ant, as ants are anything but IRL.

    IMO, the dream world abilities should have been new/exclusive abilities, that didn't suck.

    DW-exclusive Abilities exist. Good ones, at that. For example, Ditto's enjoying the crap out of Imposter, and Smogon had to ban Moody because that Ability alone gave Bidoof-- Bidoof, of all things!-- the potential to be Uber in their metagame.

    I know that, but perhaps I didn't make my point clear enough, that I wanted all of them to be exclusive, and yes, I do know it's madness.

    Lopunny gets Klutz. I find cute charm a million times better than Klutz.

    Actually, Lopunny's Hidden Ability is Limber, which is better than Cute Charm. Don't want something fast like that to lose 75% of its Speed, do ya?

    Gotta love Haxorus's Unnerve, yes it's an intimidating Pokemon but Mold Breaker at least grants a sure fire way to blow away MultiScale and Levitate users. Contrary also fails, Dry Skin, and Damp too.

    Cloud Nine on Altaria because it's literally a cloud, but Natural Cure helps keep its bulk and walling potentials sharp and Roost.

    Anger Point on Krookodile, because taking a crit for Krookodile would dent it anyway and it doesn't have the speed to utilize it fully.

    Yeah I was pretty upset when I found a female dream world combee for the first time only to find out that it's evolve form didn't have a super amazing ability.

    Of course, immunity to passive damage and the ability to use Life Orb without recoil is terrible.

    I don't know a lot about DW abilities and stats and whatever but is anyone forgetting Darmanitan? My old classmate (he actually signed up on the forums, he made an introduction but other than that he never really posted anything, oh well) once said something about how Darmanitan's DW ability is useless, something about Zen Mode highers its defense but lowers its attack and it would do better with Sheer Force.

    The Psychic-typing is okay, but it's really troublesome to activate Zen Mode...
