Three questions:

1. I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but the wording's a bit iffy in the DAT. If a Pokemon uses Focus Punch, it only fails if that Pokemon takes direct damage?

2. If a Pokemon is in the drowsy phase of Yawn, will a Safeguard used after Yawn still prevent it from sleeping?

3. Is Dodge+Safeguard a viable combo?
 
I'm trying to grasp the concept of combinations, so I'm wondering if a combination such as Swift and Sweet Kiss would make the accuracy 88% or would it never miss?

Also, is something like Swift and Sweet Kiss even viable? The anime depicts Sweet Kiss as a heart that floats as a projectile, but the description says that the Pokemon actually kisses the opponent.
 
It would never miss.

As for that, it would come down to the ref's opnion, you should make a sub in case it doesnt works.
Also, since you are fighting at the soup, make a sub in case your Unown is stolen.
 
The Johto Starters' first and second forms are able to learn the Elemental Hyper Beams (BB, FP, HC) via Pokemon XD, but they are not listed in the event database or on Veekun (as they are gifts).

So can we teach these Pokemon these moves even though they're not listed? For example, I don't want to evolve my Quilava (it's my favorite Pokemon) but I want to get him Blast Burn.

yes, XD moves are legal. If any other similar problems come up, they're also probably legal, for future reference.

also someone should add those to the database

Yeah it's one of those unwritten things that should be written that everybody knows about

ObjEDIT: It was actually written in an old SotG thread and has now been added to the substitution rules bit in the ref resource thread, so ^_^
 
Where can I find what training items are and how to get them (like exp. share) and also if I use a sheer force boosted move (like thunderbolt) and have a life orb do I take the life orb damage?
