Well, for what it's worth a lot of the intermediate split-style bodybuilding programs I put together feature either direct rest-pause sets, or a 40 rep rest-pause burn set. Both bring the pump, but are progression-focused.

I'm a bigger fan of rest-pause work for most exercises, or limiting rest, than I am of chasing the pump. Rest-pause always allowed me to build muscle while also focusing on progression, without turning sessions into volume and time marathons. Sessions were brief and brutal. Usually creates a nice pump too.

But...

Unless you plan on being Doug Miller I don't think using or not using the pump, etc., really matters much as long as progression is there somewhere.
