Yep, scorpion only has armor on ex tele if it is from a knockdown. I.e a wakeup

I never get to use Scorpion armor from ex teleport unless as a wakeup move.
oh didnt know that, interesting. wonder what other moves like that.
when i got the game i was checking what had armor by get the AI to do ex wakeups to beat meaty's. might have to recheck some things then.
thanks
