Oh god why am I bringing up this move AGAIN?

So, I'm drudging up a move that has had multiple confusions over. Taunt.

What I'm wondering here is about some issues it brings up in the PASBL: For example, Thunder Wave and Confuse Ray should both be stoppable by it, seeing as they're non-offensive moves, correct? However, Thunder Wave is a light pulse of electricity, while Confuse Ray is a beam of light. Since Thunder Wave is disabled by it, shouldn't that also make Thundershock disabled by it?

Bad example, I know. But, what I'm trying to say is that the two moves inflict status, but they do so in an offensive way. And I find the idea of not wanting to shock your opponent or hit them with a flash of light after they insulted you very... odd.

Shocking is debatable, I agree there but flashing them isn't really offensive.

I believe Thunder Wave is not stopped by it in ASB, at least I think so.

I would have them both be stopped. Twave does a bit of damage but that's not the reason for using the move.

Twave is not stopped by taunt, apparently.

Confuse ray should be. Also Zora's position on taunt seemed reasonable to me. I think taunt is reasonably balanced as is, as long as people ref it right (yes, I've reffed it wrong in the past. I'm only human). It gives an attack boost in exchange for preventing people going "lol dodge everything". There's no reason to let confuse ray work through taunt. People should probably learn to order in such a way that doesn't invite "lol taunt then megafuck them" in the same way they should learn not to order in such a way as to invite "lol light screen then megafuck them" or what have you.

EDIT the first: Zora will now inevitably post taking the piss out of all of us.
