Because x,y or z must be divisible by 3 and we're dealing with n=2, 3 is
also a possible factor of z-x and z-y by my method.

But that is it, only 1,2 or 3 can be prime factors of z-x or z-y

for x^2 + y^2 = z^2 with the usual of x,y,z being rel. prime Naturals.


I do run on adrenaline so I tend to post hastily. But you can't beat the
rush.
