    Actually, you can say something like "IF Fire Blast is issued A1, AND Flamethrower is issued A2, THEN use Rain Dance A1, pushing actions back.", & it would still count as 1 Substitution - AND is a clause that forces the substitution to be more specific in the way it is triggered, that is, just using the first move mentioned & not doing anything else stipulated in the substitution will not trigger the substitution.

    AND & NOT are the only "Logical Operators" allowed before the THEN (According to SDS).

    "IF Surf OR Scald is issued, THEN use Protect, pushing actions back." is basically an illegal way of saying...

    "IF Surf is issued, THEN use Protect, pushing actions back."
    "IF Scald is issued, THEN use Protect, pushing actions back."

    I have a quick question. I'm reffing a 1 vs. 1 match, but one of the players sent me two 'mons. Should I PM him and tell him to choose only one? Let him send out and only use one in the thread? Or should I just decide for him with a coinflip?

    @ Sound,

    Players are allowed to PM up to 3 mons in a 1v1 or 2v2 battle. Only the mons that get sent out get counters.

    The order of sending out goes

    Person who was seeking match in tower sends out first
    Person who accepted sends out second and issues actions
    Person who was seeking battle in tower issues actions
    You then ref

    *facepalm* Now that I think about it, I believe I read something to the effect of that in the battle tower. Well, thanks for responding so quickly, SubwayJ.

    Is this true? If it is, then my plan for cash is heading towards the drain...

    I believe that that was a hotfix made some time ago.

    Confirming it was decided upon as part of the hot fix, and probably should've been fixed by now. There was some debate over it a while back when it was becoming highly problematic.

    What happens if:

    A slower pokemon uses Substitute and ,next action,uses Dig while the faster opponent uses Dig as well?

    I was thinking it over during my current battle and this got my interest,anyone knows what happens? Will the faster opponent`s Dig hit the Substitute? Or will it miss entirely like in the official games?


    Just noticed i posted that in the wrong thread.....

    The attack would miss, imagine the slower pokemon takes the substitute with it, even monsters like their little Rhydon doll

    Hum....

    when you combine a physical with a special move,how is the damage calculated?

    During a move combo,assuming both moves are differently typed,i assume the stronger`s move type is used? If said move only becomes stronger due to STAB,is there a difference?

    No, foresight only affects ghost + normal-type moves.

    If Counter is used on a double battle and is hit by a physical move from both opponents,will it affect both of then? Or can it only counter one opponent?

    It will affect the last Pokemon to hit it with a physical attack, but it will factor in total damage taken from physical attacks that action.

    Wrong.

    Confirmed on PO, Counter will attack the last Pokemon to hit it with a physical attack and deal damage based on the last physical attack that hit it, not all physical attacks. The only attack that factors in total damage is Bide.

    How does Double Team interact with No Guard? When a pokemon with No Guard uses Double Team, is it still a 100% hit?

    No Guard gives attacks -- Accuracy, & since -- Accuracy attacks always strike through Double Team Clones...

    Anyone knows where i can find a list with the stat listing of every pokemon? The one at the Registration tower only lists for starter pokemon.

    I still didn't manage catch up to all the changes, so I need to ask:

    Say I use a pokemon on a RP (Battle Hall or Battle Subway to be more specific). Can I also use it on battles or not?
