    Magic Guard is erroneously reported as being existent in gen 3 as a possible ability on clef.

    Bug: Berserk does trigger for Drampa if after eating a Sitrus Berry he has above 50% health.

    Expected: Drampa with Berserk holding Sitrus Berry is hit to 26-49% health. Drampa's Berserk triggers and he gains 1 stage of Sp Attack. Drampa then eats the berry and recovers 25% health. (Tested in game and confirmed it will eat Berry after getting the buff allowing it to gain 2 Berserk triggers. Works with both Sitrus and oran berry)

    Actual: Drampa with Berserk holding Sitrus Berry is hit to 26-49% health. Drampa eats the berry and recovers 25% health. No Sp. Attack raise until hit below 50% again.

    Example Battle:
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7vgc2017-514936465

    T3:
    The opposing Tapu Fini used Dazzling Gleam!
    It's super effective on Drampa! Drampa lost 62.0% of its health!
    Drampa ate its Sitrus Berry!
    Drampa restored HP using its Sitrus Berry!
    Vikavolt lost 27.7% of its health!

    T4:
    The opposing Whimsicott used Energy Ball!
    It's not very effective... Drampa lost 16.3% of its health!
    [Drampa's Berserk!]
    Drampa's Special Attack rose!

    Drampa wants its double Berserks

    Hey !

    First you need to remember how you calc your Hidden Power.
    You must calc (a+b+c+d+e+f) * 15 / 63
    if your HP's IV's are uneven (I'm not native english, but I think that's the word for 1,3,5,7 etc), a = 1, either, a = 0
    Same thing for every other letters, but b = 2 (Attack), c = 4 (Def), d = 8 (Special Attack), e = 16 (Special Def) and f = 32 (Speed)

    This calc will give you a number between 0 and 15, the 16 Hidden Power (every types but Fairy and Normal)
    To get dark, you must have 15, so ALL your IVs must be uneven (That's why 31 ivs everywhere gives you it)

    Due to hyper training, you can now have all your IVs to 31 without changing your Hidden Power. So, if you wanna play min Atk, you will have 0 Atk IVs and you'll boost your other IVs.
    I just showed that if you want Dark HP, all your IVs must be uneven, and on Showdown, with the Hyper Training update, you can run Min Atk or Min Speed HP Dark, with 0 IVs in those stats, and it's clearly impossible!

    Other HP problems I won't calc because they're harder :
    You can't have HP Dragon/Ghost/Grass/Poison with 0 Speed Ivs
    Hidden Power Ice and Water can't have 0 Atk and 0 Speed at the same time (My calc might be wrong for Ice I kinda fucked up!)

    (And if it was possible, I'm really sorry lmao)




    Edit : Another Bug

    Yo I randomly tried the OM of the Month, Pokébilities, which allows you to have all your abilities at once, and somehow, if you build Scolipede with Sword Dance Baton Pass Swarm/Poison Point, you can run the team even though there's the baton pass clause, if you run Speed Boost your team will be rejected.

    Burn used to be 1/16 in gen 1 too. Then it was changed to 1/8 from gen 2 moving forward for the remainder until gen 7. So from gen 2 to gen 6, it's basically been all the same.

    I just had my Golisopod's Emergency Exit work from Toxic damage before the Sitrus Berry (berry was still used) and force a switch anyway even though the Sitrus Berry put it above half health.

    My Pyukumuku was only able to do struggle even though it was the first turn. It knew moves as well. Here is screenshot

    Assault vest prevents you from using status moves, thus struggle

    Lol, it won't let you battle if you didn't put moves on all of your Pokemon. Assault Vest was a new gen 6 item that came after the Eviolite in gen 5, which boosted both Def and SpD, but Assault Vest only increases your SpD and was first commonly seen on Goodra, where they can only use attacking moves. No status included.

    Come on man, at least try to do one second of research before jumping to "I'm guessing hack, no other explanation" and then posting in the bugs thread. I almost thought it was a joke post.

    Used Trick with my itemless Slowbro on Life Orb Breloom and it failed:

    Trick currently fails if the user isn't holding an item. I noticed this has been brought up before so I wasn't sure if this is a bug, but I did a little research and apparently it is.

    https://veekun.com/dex/moves/trick <- "Works even if one of the Pokémon isn't holding anything."

    http://pokemondb.net/move/trick <- "It does not require both Pokémon to be holding an item, in which case the item is simply given to the target or received from it."

    http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/75679/can-you-trick-someone-with-trick <- They cite Smogon as their source, but that was back in Gen 4. Afaik Trick's mechanics haven't changed since then though.

    Ok I don't wanna sound mean, but this thread is about reporting bugs, every posts should be about reporting one, explaining to someone what happened exactly or an admin telling us it's fixed no one cares about those stuff bub

    To my knowledge, as of gen 7 you need to have an item to use trick. This was not the case in gen 6, so if those sources haven't updated since then that's probably why.

    Orday Edit: This is actually a bug, according to Marty. Trick mechanics did not change in gen7.

    According to the Battle Mechanics thread, Judgment does not change type when holding a Z-crystal, so it remains a Normal move. Hence you probably did not have any Flying moves to use your Z chrystal with.

    Even if that's true, this bug still occurs in Gen 6 and possibly previous gens too. Here's an example from only a couple of pages back:
    I have no idea whether the mechanics were changed in Gen 7 and I'm not able to test it, but either way this is still a bug in Gen 6 (assuming my sources are correct).

    This is just straight incorrect. Trick only fails if neither Pokemon are holding an item, or if one of the items is locked (such as vs Giratina-O). Trick was not changed in Gen 7. What people are describing is a bug.

    Hi, I don't know if they are bugs or just errors of data, but I'm reporting them here anyway:

    in VGC 2017:

    1. Oricorio's Dancer abilitie + Petal Dance: In Showdown Oricorio keeps locked in Petal Dance after the first use, while in 3DS it doesn't.

    2. Another error is also related to Dancer: if the Dancer user is sleeping (e.g. Trace Porygon 2 or other Oricorio), the Dancer abilitie keeps working even through the sleep in Showdown, while it don't work that way in 3DS.

    English is not my first language, so I apologize in advance for any mistake.
    Thanks!

    According to the first post in this thread , reflect type should fail if used against a typeless previously fire type pokemon.
    but as shown in this replay reflect type doesn't fail when used against the arcanine that became typeless due to burn up.

    I have a bug to report.

    When using a Pokemon with a trapping ability (Dugtrio, Magnezone, Alolan Golem, etc...) The "You Might be trapped, so you won't be able to cancel a switch" warning only pops up when the opponent has the ability. I tested with two accounts simultaneously and found that when I used a Magnezone with Analytic, the "You might be trapped..." message does not come up. Idk why the 'warning' is there, it may as well just say 'you're trapped' from the get-go.

    Ok so, I have found a presumed bug: I was in a VGC battle and my core was lilligant+oricorio.
    I have used petal dance with lilligant and the ability "dancer" of my oricorio activated in the same turn.
    The strange thing is that the next turn I was locked in petal dance. I have checked on bulbapedia to make sure it was not a bug, but a game's mechanich, but there is written that
    "If a Pokémon copies Petal Dance via Dancer, it will not be locked into the move".

    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7vgc2017-517825289

    Unfortunately I've lost the original battle replay, but I've tested it again just to be sure, and the result was the same.
    Is this a bug or am I missing something? Thanks for the help.

    I don't know if any similar cases have been reported recently, but for some reason, Fire Blast is listed as a legal move on Eelektross, which shouldn't be the case (in Monotype, not BH or something like that).

    Proof (open)

    Edit: PS!, however, did tell me that Fire Blast was incompatible with Eelektross when I tried to validate my team.
