    Is that 80 BP AFTER critical hit or before? If it's an actual 120 dark damage move with def stat boost immunity then...free at last from G-Corsola.
  2. SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Has anyone learned the base power of Wicked Blow and Surging Strikes yet?
  3. Pokémon Grimmsnarl

    I think it would also be an interesting strategy to give Grimmsnarl the Lagging Tail + Trick after setting up screens with Prankster. Could be a decent way to end the dominant speed sweepers such as Choice Scarf G-Darmanitan,

    A few things to probe. Are you including the cancelling of Gorilla Tactics from Weezing's Neutralizing Gas upon calculation? Is the Darmanitan a rental or was it raised by you, and if so, what is its nature and EV build? How high up the tower are you? Is the Lass's Weezing a higher rank?

    Someone should look up how Utility Umbrella works to its fullest. Can it for instance negate the damage boost from opposing water attacks when in the rain?
  6. SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Fluffy only works with contact moves, and it seems to be established that all dynamax moves do not count as contact. Although, I hope that is not true, as these dynamax moves seem already broken enough and being able to bypass certain abilities and possibly terrain effects like Ground moves...

    If that's still true then G-Corsola now has to be one of the most broken new entrants in the metagame. I cant think of a single option to break this wall other than having someone taunt it. And that gets predictable to avoid by switching or using Shadow Ball against most ghost types who would be...

    Has it been researched if Strength Sap fails against abilities such as Clear Body and White Smoke including recovery? If so, I think there's a certain Fire type who benefits here.
  9. SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Has it even been confirmed yet if Eviolite is present in the game, if it works on Galarian pre-evolutions like Corsola, or possibly nerfed in some specific way?

    That would a very huge waste of aesthetics if the new forms were only meant to alter one specific type of attack. Most of the G-Max Pokemon look even bulkier than their regular forms. There would especially be no point to G-Max forms other than style if you decide to not teach them any moves of...

    Still doesn't answer my question. Change HP COMPARED to Dynamax?
  12. SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword & Shield Pre-Release SPOILERS - Check Post 2!

    I don't think the leaker was being specific enough. When he says the Gigantamax only raises HP, does he mean it's the same exact HP boost as regular Dynamax or it's an even larger HP boost than Dynamax?

    On the plus side, with the right moveset, Dracovish can be another decent Toxapex counter. Burning the fossil fish with scald would be impossible due to Water Absorb. Give it earthquake (which I hope GF is kind enough to allow) and substitute and you got perfect immunity and power against the...
  14. SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword & Shield Pre-Release SPOILERS - Check Post 2!

    Can I just add that there's the possibility of a Pokemon that can benefit from opposing Toxapex? One that inherits Guts, is part Normal type with Facade, and can Taunt? And of course knows Pursuit to punish switching? Not to mention it is known as the Blocking Pokemon, so fingers crossed that it...
