    If a Pokemon uses Fire Spin, can it still use other Fire moves, like Ember and Flamethrower? Thanks. :]

    Unless you combo it with an attacking move.

    The part of the description about Taunt is most likely a copypaste articfact from u-Turn and friends.

    I have a question regarding the ability, Imposter.

    I am battling in the library of abilities arena and the rules require 2 abilities to be RNG'd in NFE mons. My Scyther has Imposter as one of his abilities (The other is Minus). In this case, can I chose to not activate Imposter if I want?

    I am highly confused here!! Please help before I go nuts D:

    So I just read the newest update on Combos...

    Does this include same-attack combos, too?

    It's not down. You need to register your name in order to join, to prove you're not a bot.

    Type /help in to whatever client you're using.

    When I search for #capasb, nothing comes up.
    When I forcibly join it, it's as if I'm creating that chatroom.
    I registered as a nick, (though the /help menu was rather useless), but even using /identify to log in doesn't resolve the issue.
    Little help? (I'm using Mibbit)

    EDIT: I've connected to #capasb through Mibbit before, but I'll try SynIRC.

    Join the right sever. #capasb is found on SynIRC.

    No, since neither is a self boosting or recovery move

    two questions:

    1) If a pokemon is holding a toxic orb, and they are sent out, when are they poisoned? before i do a1? and the end of the round? how will that work?

    2) If there is a "If flamethrower, then blahblahblah" sub, does a Flamethrower+Flamethrower combo activate that sub?

    1) I'm pretty sure it's just at the end of the round if it isn't already inflicted with Poison. (DAT description: "At the end of each round, the Pokemon is inflicted with bad poison.")

    2) Yes, if you make a sub for a move, combos involving that move activate the sub.

    If you use Substitute and then U-turn in a switch =KO battle, do you just lose the HP you put into the Substitute?

    Just like in-game, you don't get anything back. The HP doesn't go back, and you lose your sub. Case in point, don't use U-Turn/ Volt Switch while behind a Sub.

    I'm a bit confused here. Does it only reflect the most recent physical attack, or all attacks from that action. Also, do you specify who you target?

    Counter is calculated with all the physically-based damage taken before Counter is used that action, even if the damage came from an ally. Also, yes, you must specify who Counter is being used against.

    Also, Focus Punch expends EN even if it fails due to taking damage, right?

    Incorrect. Counter will always hit the last Pokemon to deal Physical Damage to the user. And yes, Focus Punch uses Energy even if it fails.

    Actually, as far as I can tell, Counter only reflects damage based on the last physical attack that hit it; while Bulbapedia's pages on both Counter and Mirror Coat say nothing about this, Metal Burst's description says it reflects the last attack, not all of them. iirc the only attack that reflects based on all damage is Bide, and I'd say that Counter is more similar to Metal Burst than Bide.

    Is there a final say I can get on this? I've seen four variations of the move counter and I want to be concise as possible.

    Also, easier question. Are Accuracy drops and boosts calculated in the same format as stats such as Atk and Def, and if not, could someone please explain how? It doesn't clearly say in the Data Audit thread.
