      Do Spikes, Toxic Spikes, and Sticky Web check groundedness, or Ground immunity?
      1. Marty D
        Marty D
        Groundedness. I first thought Inverse Battles were the first time this could have been verified, but Ring Target existed in Gen 5. Of course, this only applies to Flying types since every other Ground immunity-removing effect actually grounds you.

      Do Terrain effects activate on Pokemon in the middle of Dive, Dig, Phantom Force, or Shadow Force?

        What do you mean? It says they affect Pokemon "on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move" for all three Terrains.

      Pokemon is repeatedly using a move while holding the Metronome. Magic Room activates. When Magic Room fades, what happens to the Metronome counter?
      1. Marty D
        Marty D
        The counter goes up regardless of the item being ignored, whether it starts being ignored before or during the consecutive uses.

        In fact, the item isn't the thing keeping count at all. Tricking a Metronome to something that has used a move repeatedly starts the next one at whatever power it would have had if it was holding Metronome the whole time.

      Cloud Nine Golduck uses Rain Dance during Harsh Sun/Heavy Rain/Strong Wind. What happens?
      1. Marty D
        Marty D
        It fails due to the extreme weather. The Abilities are what keeps them active, after all (Mold Breaker doesn't ignore them either, though).

        All right then. What about Castform vs Cloud Nine? Will it revert to normal if Sun or something is suppressed?
        Apr 24, 2015
      3. Marty D
        Marty D
        Yeah Castform and Cherrim revert while a Cloud Nine user is active. That's already implemented properly last time I checked.

      I read a thread on /r/stunfisk that claims that Desolate Land and Primordial Sea can't overwrite Delta Stream, can you confirm/deny in case I need to patch in the bugfix?

      fsr I can't post in the thread on phone so: the healing wish / lunar dance thing is still incorrectly implemented on smogtours (I used a ld cress in week 9 of tour) which is why I assumed it wasn't functional

        No problem! It's weird if SmogTours doesn't have it, it should be using the latest code. I'll see about bugging someone to fix that. Also the Outrage thing will be fixed next update (on the main server at least)!

        Oh I found the replay you were talking about. No idea why it didn't work last month, but it does work on SmogTours now.

      Marty D thanks for the clarification about the pledge combo mechanics. May you still confirm whether the typing determination of this combo is bugged on PS! or not? As I posted on the bugs thread:

      Fire + Grass -> Fire-type
      Fire + Water -> Water-type
      Grass + Water -> Grass-type

      the order in which it happens is irrelevant. Is this true / Is PS bugged, or is this all just misinformation?
      1. Marty D
        Marty D
        Yeah, that's true. Also the combo is used by the second Pokemon to move and always has STAB no matter what the user's type is (even if neither Pokemon has one of the combo types). The tests done on Pledge moves in BW were misleading and led to that implementation, but they do actually have the same mechanics as in XY. The more you know!

        wow okay - thanks for the clarification! Is it also true that these pledge combos ignore defensive boosts and resistances? Does this mean that they ignore offensive boosts (including item boosts) and super effective damage, too? What about immunities from Flash Fire, Storm Drain, Sap Sipper?
        Jan 4, 2014
      3. Marty D
        Marty D
        Nope, the combos don't ignore any of that stuff. For the most part they act like any standard move (besides the STAB thing). However, Water Pledge can't be redirected by Storm Drain, comboed or not (the Storm Drain Pokemon will still be immune and get the boost if you did target it though).

      Are you still planning on exploring the whole "airborne" thing? You mentioned it when I brought up Spikes in Inverse. I'll have WiFi for the next three weeks so if you do I'd love to help out~ also I need to redeem myself for my screwup ._.
      1. Marty D
        Marty D
        That was pretty much the extent of it, actually. Being airborne and being immune to Ground are related but different; you can negate the Ground immunity without actually being grounded, but you can't be grounded and immune to Ground.

      2. Marty D
        Marty D
        This really only applies to Flying-types anyway (Ring Target, and now Inverse Battles) because you can't negate Ground immunity from Levitate or other such effects without fully grounding the Pokemon (Mold Breaker doesn't count).
