    Hey all, recently I came up with this really neat idea. Here's how it went down.

    Ok, so I lead with a smeargle and use conversion so it becomes an electric type. Then, I baton pass out to a shedinja with an air balloon. Shedinja shouldn't be able to be hurt at all, right? But my opponent used sucker punch and I fainted. Why is this? Shedinja was displayed as an electric type. Is this some kind of glitch?

    Conversion is not a Volatile Status. It changes the type of the Pokemon that is hit by it, like Simple Beam with types instead of abilities. Because Shedinja couldn't become a normal type by BPing normally and Smeargle is now an Electric type, Shedinja won't become an Electric type. The Electric type display, though, was probably a glitch.

    Also, as a note, you should post this in the Bug Report thread in the future.
