To counter DR actually. Your opp will think twice about letting you win the first round if it means letting a big pillz ability become a threat. Alternatively, they have to worry about DRing Xiaoyu herself and still letting Pillz be gained. Even if they only let 3 damage through, that's still 32 attack she can get away with.
I will admit I did not think this completely through when I wrote it.
