    Did you test this in Doubles? If so, are you sure it's status moves that don't activate Quick Draw, or could it be moves that target your ally?

    In theory it should be possible to get a Durant with Truant via Max Raid battles, right? So it would be possible to check that one without hacking.

    Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

    Hey mods, please explain to me this ban on double-posting. I mean if somebody is spamming a thread with posts, that's a separate issue. You can ban those jerks on a case-by-case basis. But I cannot fathom why if a person posts and then posts again about a separate point, that is somehow a...

    SPOILERS! List of Movepool Changes [New Isle of Armor Additions!]

    I think Evasion and Baton Pass aren't problematic in Singles. They're just (potentially) problematic in the 6v6 Singles meta that Smogon has created for itself. In 3v3, games are over pretty fast and your luck averages out over time. Granted they could still be problematic for tournaments, but...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    I believe there are different evolution items for Milcery. Depending on which one(s) you use, Alcremie will look different. I don't know the details, just that there are a bunch of those items in the data dump.

    You're assuming Choice Band is still in the game. It wouldn't surprise me if it were removed.

    Do you have any evidence of this? Cart evidence, I mean, not simulator "evidence".

    Custap Berry does not give priority. It just lets you move first in your priority bracket. I have no idea whether it's obtainable ingame, but I doubt it is yet.

    Metagame Sun and Moon Doubles Discussion Thread

    I doubt it'll really be useful there, though. Battle Royal points are decided by how many Pokémon you knocked out + how many of yours are still conscious at the end. So you can help somebody else win with Spotlight, but I doubt it's going to do much for you. Possibly it's useful for things like...

    Data Pokemon Sun/Moon Battle Mechanics Research

    So how do spread moves work in Battle Royal? Do they target all three other Pokémon? If so, how much is the damage of spread moves reduced? Is it 25% like in Doubles, or is it more? Is it different when there are three targets than when there are two?

    I'm sure you're correct. I just hoped for the trigger to be: the target tries to use a move. And then the move gets delayed. But really there's no actual reason for GameFreak to do that when they could just do a normal priority change instead. It's a move with so much doubles potential, and...

    And apologies for pursuing this, but have you tested for Pursuit-like priority, or just looked at the data dump (which I'm sure confirms it doesn't have real priority)? I do realize that I am reaching here.

    SPOILERS! Sun & Moon In-Game Discovery Thread

    How is it that other companies can make games for the 3DS that run well in 3-D with multiple models on the screen, but GameFreak can't even create a 2-D game with 6 models (2 trainers and 4 Pokémon) on the screen at once without framerate drops?

    OK, so this is another vague pie-in-the-sky question, so apologies in advance. Has Quash been buffed at all? Specifically does it either have priority or pseudo-priority like Pursuit? It's baffling to me that this move, which is effectively useless even in doubles, is still a TM.

    For Fell Stinger: Gen VI text: "When the user knocks out a target with this move, the user's Attack stat rises sharply." Gen VII text: "When the user knocks out a target with this move, the user's Attack stat rises drastically." Could someone please confirm whether Fell Stinger now raises...

    So in a wild Pokémon battle, Emergency Exit makes you flee the battle, rather than switching to another Pokémon in your roster? Or did you only have the Golisopod in your party?

    That doesn't even make sense. Nothing could be "immune" to Prankster.
