If a Pokemon with Truant uses a move that requires recharging on the second turn (such as Hyper Beam), it will recharge on the same turn the Pokemon loafs around. Moves where the user prepares on the first turn and attacks on the second (such as Solarbeam or Fly) cannot be used.
Truant can technically be Skill Swapped away, however neither Slakoth, Slaking or Durant learn it.
