        Thanks! That's pretty weird since there are no Pikachu events with both and it seems to be illegal in Gen 5 formats as intended. I'll look into it.

        I don't get notifications for any RoA threads, but I did see your post. That issue's been known for a while but no one's figured out any good ways of fixing it yet. :(

        Oh.. That's kinda awful :/ can't PS check Ninjask's moveset and allows only one move if the level is higher ? I know it's only a strange case and almost nobody uses Shedinja but :s

      Excuse me but, how did Quick Attack and Pursuit work in both RBY (QA) and GSC (Pursuit) respectively? I've been told that they aren't exactly Priority +1 and Priority +7. Oh and do you have an accurate source for it?

      Do Gems activate for damageCallback moves? Psywave/Counter/Endeavor/Mirror Coat/Final Gambit/Metal Burst/Super Fang
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Yeah, as long as they actually hit the target. I just fixed the Endeavor issue but the counter moves might have the same problem. Will check.

      Can you confirm how Trick Room works in-game? Does it affect the order that abilities activate in double switches? Bulbapedia claims it's only moves, but I think it also implies the order that Pokemon switch as well
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Ability activation order is the same as Speed order, and Speed in Trick Room is (0x2710 - speed) & 8191.
        Nov 13, 2015
      2. ascriptmaster
        ascriptmaster
        Is this the cause for the trick room glitch? Since 1808 becomes 0, and 1809 rolls over to 8191?

        And along that vein, entering 1810 becomes 8190, which is "slower" than 1809's value, so if two Pokemon with speeds higher than 1809 clash in Trick Room, will the slower one move first?

      Yo Marty, Could you check out this game-breaking mechanic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rzKTt0LEUk I know that it isn't implemented in Showdown but check it out.

      How exactly is the Forewarn message structured? Does it mention the Pokemon the move belongs to?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Yeah, but only since Gen 5 - "It was alerted to POKEMON’s MOVE!"

        In Gen 4 it just said "POKEMON’s Forewarn alerted it to MOVE!"

        Incidentally that's also why it's now officially illegal to nickname two Pokemon identically, or nickname one with the species name of another, to avoid confusion on messages like this.

      In PS, Defeatist is coded that AtK/SpA is halved when below 50%.
      In-game description and a few other sources I checked says it's equals or less than 50%.
      Do you know which is correct?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Good catch, it is actually less than or equal to, but looks like it's already been fixed!

      Parental Bond + Rollout/Ice ball?
      The simulator double the damage to every hit. Is that right? And then in the 3rd attack second hit (the "6th" turn of rollout), just halves the damages of the 5th hit like standard parental bond. Is this right in game?
      Also, echoed voice. Same thing? No?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Parental Bond doesn't affect Rollout or Ice Ball.

        Echoed Voice does work with Parental Bond, but it only boosts the damage every turn, not every hit. Echoed Voice checks whether a Pokemon used it last turn; it doesn't boost damage during a turn if multiple Pokemon use it (or the same Pokemon uses it twice in this case).

        > assuming we trust in-game descriptions
        Nah. Most websites are wrong about Metal Powder; it's only 1.5x to both defenses in Gen 2. Since Gen 3, it's 2x to Defense only.

      Does Mold Breaker block Liquid Ooze?
      1. Marty

        Nope!
        Jul 14, 2015

      Is Mold Breaker supposed to negate the move-redirection effect of Lightning Rod / Storm Drain? And on an unrelated note, what is the effect across all gens for Flash Fire when the Pokemon is frozen?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Yeah redirection is ignored.

        For Flash Fire, in Gen 3 and 4 being frozen makes you take damage from Fire moves (and they also thaw you), presumably because Ability immunity checks come after the accuracy check. Since Gen 5, Ability immunity checks come before the accuracy check, so you can't be thawed by them since Flash Fire prevents them earlier. Will-O-Wisp does nothing while the target's frozen, as you would expect, in all gens.
        Jul 13, 2015
      2. Marty
        Marty
        Just to clarify that Will-O-Wisp part, I meant it won't thaw a frozen target; it fails in Gen 3 and 4 and gets absorbed by Flash Fire in Gen 5 and 6.

      Is a Pokemon in a semi-invulnerable state like Shadow Force supposed to dodge Future Sight (on the turn it's used) and thus prevent the attack from landing in the future?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Nope. Is that happening on PS? :/

        Yes. I thought it seemed like a bug.
