So I'm using a prankster Riolu in Battle Maison and I set up entry hazards with Ferrothorn and let him do his thing. After that Riolu is sent out first thing I do is roar causing the opponent to switch, and then I use copycat to copy roar but it fails. Am I doing something wrong?

Copycat now fails if Roar was the last move.

It was a gen V glitch. No longer works. Interesting how a glitch can become legal like swords dance shedinja.

They changed Prankster's effects on Roar, Copycat and Assist, destroying their respective strategies.

Just like when I walk through the sand and slow down and can't be bothered to remember how the wolf senses work, and how my MP is stuck at zero when I equip the obvious magic-nulling plot trinket!

All the things people on these boards defend as "not glitches" and then we get the other side of the coin, where things that aren't glitchy in the slightest and work exactly the way you'd expect are "glitches". 9_9

They changed how it works because it was, at least in their opinion, overpowered, not because it was a glitch.
