Pico's card states:
During another hero's turn, if that hero is adjacent to Pico, he may search a search token in the space containing Pico (this does not require an action).
Does this mean that Ronan himself cannot use Pico's ability, or is Pico being considered the hero in this sentence?
If Ronan cannot use this ability himself, what was possibly the balance decision behind that? Would it hurt the game much to allow Ronan to use Pico's ability himself? I understand that the #1 reason heroes get too strong is from gear, which is obtained by getting search tokens, and that getting them basically for free is fairly powerful, but I do not understand why Ronan himself can't do it, when it is his own ability.
