The new Ground/Grass-type form of Tentacruel from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Toedscruel, is the most debauched Spore user ever, but its ability hurts its success in battle.
The new Pokemon has the same advent as Tentacruel except its beak has been replaced by a nose and its tentacles function more like legs. Toedscruel’s not a jellyfish that learned to tread on land, though; it’s a mushroom. Interestingly, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet changed Tentacruel from Water/Poison to Grass/Ground as an alternative to Grass/Poison, but its moveset and statistics make it useful. But it would be even more beneficial if it didn’t have an ability at all.
Toedscruel is one of the insufficient Pokemon capable of using Spore, a one-hundred-percent-accurate status move that refers foes to sleep, allowing much weaker Pokemon to even take down legendaries if it grows to hit. Spore can only be learned by these Pokemon too Toedscruel: Paras, Parasect, Shroomish, Breloom, Foonguss, Amoonguss, Morelull, and Shiinotic.
The average rapidity of those Pokemon is slightly under 34, with Breloom being the promptest at 70. Meanwhile, Toedscruel sits pretty with a speed of 100, making it by far the wildest. So there’s nothing to stop players from putting a choice scarf on it and just distributing everything to sleep, or so it would seem.
TikTok user wolfeyvgc lately posted a video breakdown of Toedscruel’s ability, Mycelium Might, which is effectively a nerf meant to stop players from breaking the game with an overpowered Pokemon.
Its skill does this: the Pokemon always attacks after its opponent when using status moves, but its rank moves ignore the ability of the target. Meaning there’s no means for Toedscruel to ever move first when using Spore, leaving it vulnerable to whatever attack English hawthorn hit and possibly kill it beforehand it gets a coincidental.

Pokemon made a fast Spore operator and realized that it made a Pokemon capable of sweeping teams by sending one and all to sleep. So, it nerfed Toedscruel by giving it Mycelium Might– making sure it can’t exploit Spore while giving it a form of Mold Breaker to make up for the impractical ability.
If fans want a speedy Spore user, they canister still find Breloom in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. If they prepare it with a choice scarf then they have a Pokemon with 105 haste that can use Spore. Toedscruel’s speed with a high-quality scarf is 150, and with the average base hurry for all Pokemon being 66, if Toedscruel didn’t have Mycelium Might only Pokemon with Electric, Grass, or holding Overcoat or Safety Goggles would be able to attitude up to it.
