Simple beam and worry seed don't change abilities fix completed

Ticket description:
When using worry seed or simple beam the target doesn't change its ability, instead keeping the old one.
For example, if you use simple beam on a pokemon with water absorb, it still can't be damaged with water type moves.
Other moves that change abilities(gastro acid, entrainment, etc.) work as intended.

I have been able to confirm this issue using the latest 8.3.7 release - the moves Worry Seed and Simple Beam do not actually change the abilities of the target.

The ingame text says they have acquired the new ability, but further testing proves they did not (I used a Sap Sipper Azumarill and a Rough Skin Garchomp), retaining the original ability effects and not gaining the effects of the new ability.

I have marked this ticket to be passed to internal - thank you for your report!
