Nope, no reason at all! Just Game Freak crapping on another Bug-type who has potential (i.e. Bug/Flying spam, Masquerain's weak stats, constant x4 weaknesses).

I think they just thought of giving Truant as a dream world ability was to be a little joke. It's no big deal though, since Aianto's other abilities are pretty fair!

The biggest disappointment was Make Friends doesn't work with Truant.
Th biggest disappointment was the inclusion of Truant in the first place.

The reason for it having Truant is because, although it can not be removed by Entrainment you can give the opponent Truant with it. Here is a good set for it.


Item: Focus-sash
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Truant
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Attack, 6 Hp

Entrainment
Iron-head
X-scissor
Stone-edge/Thunder-wave

Entrainment DOES work with Truant and is the devastating part of this set. Iron-head is for STAB, and Flinch. X-scissor is STAB. Stone-edge is coverage and T-wave is for if you really want to be annoying.


But beware this is so annoying that people may get angry if you use this on them.
