So when Naruto faces Pain he is going to need to learn a powerful Genjutsu or use Ma Pa combo like Jiraya did so they can use the singing genjutsu to help out naruto, but it will most likely come down to a big group of ninja vs pain... sadly
( not talking about the upcoming fight with Pain vs Konaha but later on in the series )
I don't recall him absorbing taijutsu. The reason for him needing genjutsu was because the the Rinn... eyesight protecting each others blind spots making taijutsu useless.
So Gai and lee will be a good match for the fat pain unless he has more up his sleeve.
