If Zoroark uses Substitute and it is then broken, does Illusion fade?
that was tested a while back, and no it doesn't.Does the item, Metronome, boost multi-hit moves like bullet seed and icicle spear now? Now that each hit of those moves is considered a separate action and breaks focus sashes, etc it seems like this has a chance of being the case.
Focus Sash does not protect the Pokémon who delivered the KO blow against a Destiny Bond user despite having all of its HP.That's interesting. What about Destiny Bond now?
This is what happened in one of my random wifi matches yesterdayThat's interesting. What about Destiny Bond now?
Fascinating, but I'd be willing to bet that that is infact how encore has always worked, and nobody ever noticed.I was watchin this video on youtube and something odd happened. Around 1 minute, Leperadusu uses Taunt on Blaziken and Blaziken fails to use Baton Pass because of it. On the next turn, Leperadusu uses Ecore and Blaziken is forced to use Protect. This would mean that Encore now forces the Pokemon to use the last move it actually executed, so moves that failed wouldn't be Encore but whatever move that succeeded before that would be Ecored instead. If this is how Encore always worked, then disregard this post but the Smogon page doesn't mention it.
Magic Mirror did not bounce back effects when it used ProtectMagic Mirror: Does it still bounce back effects even if the Pokemon is using Protect\Detect? What happens when two Pokemon with Magic Mirror face each other? Does Mold Breaker override it?
Tested this by allowing a wild lvl 15 Basurao(who only has 100 accuracy moves) to attack my Starmie with Illuminate 50 times.Illuminate: Does it cause a drop in opponent's accuracy? (Note: this may not be a visible stat change, so testing a 100% accurate move a few dozen times will be the test.
Tested this with a Genosect with 245 Spatt using Techno Buster against a 275 SpD Blissey. Both max and minimum damage confirmed in-game.Blaze\Aqua\etc. Cassettes: Do these items only change the typing of Techno Buster, or do they increase its power along with moves matching the type of the cassette?
The percentage stays the same, or the amount of HP lost will stay the same?Confirmed Reckless's boost to recoil moves is still only 20%, and does not increase the recoil.
Did a quick test against a level 8 Choroneko with Growl, Scratch, and Assist.Wicked Thief: Does it allow you to steal items when Weavile is hit with a contact move or when Weavile uses a contact move such as Fake Out or Ice Punch?
