Venus bugged?

Pet Battles
Not sure if I've run into extremely unlucky RNG, but as an elemental, it's not supposed to be affected by weather. Nocturnal Strike was able to hit it 12 times in a row (granted, not a huge sample size), which seems either very unlikely or very unlucky.
Currently it's bugged that all elementals get affected by that part of darkness.
I think this is intended. Darkness is simply a condition of the attack. So the weather isn't affecting the elemental, it is affecting the attack.

Technically, it is either intended or unintended based on the tooltip's wording. For example, Nocturnal Strike says "If your opponent is blinded then" it always hits. So that's a bug.

However, Surge of Light says "If there is Sunlight then", which means it should work against Elementals because it checks Sunlight directly.

So, in this case it is a bug, but it is not always a bug.

Yeah, and it seems inconsistent, as Deep Freeze doesn't have a 100% chance to stun elementals while the weather is Blizzard as the elementals aren't chilled by the weather.
