Robot from the Future
What happens if ditto comes in as mawile transforms? Does impostor make you normal or mega?Plus and myself tested this question in the OP:
We tested Ditto vs Mega Mawile. When Ditto transformed it turned into Mega Mawile. After this, we tested the damage done by each attack, to confirm it wasn't cosmetic only. The damage done was within 1. So Transform turn you into a Mega Pokemon!
- Does Transform work on Mega-Evolved Pokémon? If so, does the Pokémon transform into its Mega-Evolved forme or its normal forme?
Checked it. On turn one Charizard and Magikarp switch in. On turn two Magikarp switches out for Feebas, then the mega-evolution occurs. So yeah, looks like Gengar won't be able to prevent a switch that way. :P Which was kinda a logical thing to expect.I searched the OP and kind of need this for the Gengar thread, does Mega Evolution have priority over switching?
Ah shoot. Well, at least he stays Mega evolved for the remainder of the battle, many thanks.Checked it. On turn one Charizard and Magikarp switch in. On turn two Magikarp switches out for Feebas, then the mega-evolution occurs. So yeah, looks like Gengar won't be able to prevent a switch that way. :P Which was kinda a logical thing to expect.
Dude, there is no move or ability in Pokemon that actually prevents a Pokemon from switching out. Shadow Tag, Arena Trap, etc. only prevent you from CHOOSING to switch out a Pokemon. So it doesn't matter whether a switch or a mega evolution goes first; if you don't have Shadow Tag when your opponent is choosing his moves, he can switch out.I searched the OP and kind of need this for the Gengar thread, does Mega Evolution have priority over switching?
I've already checked him for first time. He says the name of the Pokemon, so the Hydreigon example is fake. I can't say nothing new, he has said Aggron for me.Pokemon-amie seems to increase critical hit rate, that's probably why it feels more than 1/16 now. Can anyone test if it carries over to WiFi battles?
After you have defeated the Elite Four, you can find Trevor in Geosenge Town. Each day, he will ask if you have captured a specific Pokémon. However, rather than asking to see the Pokémon, he will inform you that it has a Mega Evolution. The Pokémon in question changes each day.
Among the pokemon that have been asked: "a 3-headed dragon" (Hydreigon), Machamp (unconfirmed), "a pokemon that stores its power in its cheecks", "an eon pokemon", "a pokemon from space" and a grass-type pokemon with vines (Tangrowth?).
Ok scratch the last sentence. They're probably fake rumors. The NPC however is real.
Confirming the same happens with Forest's Curse. Had it cast on my Dragalgae, the Phantump went on to leech seed me, Dragalgae was immune but when the turn ended I had HP restored by my Black Sludge.It appears that Trick-or-Treat does add Ghost as a third type. Stess tested it against a Hawlucha, and it became immune to Fighting and Ground all at once, and still weak to Psychic.
This might be pointless, but I'm curious. What happens if you use Ability Capsule on a pokemon with a Hidden Ability? If that pokemon changes to it's normal ability, what happens if you use Ability Capsule a 2nd time on that same pokemon? Does it go back to it's hidden ability?Got 200 BP and tried out Ability Capsule. It goes in the medicine pocket and is not a battle item. It only works for Pokemon that have 2 non hidden abilities, so you can't change the ability to a hidden ability.
It's also a one-time use thing, so you probably should just save your BP.
Wow what a useless item! If it was a key item, it might have been worth it, but one-time (no hidden abilities)! That's completely useless! You could save all that time BP collecting by just breeding until you get that second ability.It fails IIRC. I tried it out on my Infiltrator Chandelure and it didn't work at all, despite it having two non hidden abilities in Flash Fire and Flame Body.
That's interesting...my friend said it hit his Doublade. Based on this inconsistency, it could be possible that Flying Press sort of weighs SE vs. Immune vs. Neutral vs. Resisted all in one while calculating effectiveness. So it could possibly be like this (Assume this is a dual-type combination, like for instance in the first example, if one was part Steel-typing and part Ghost):Ghost-types are IMMUNE to Flying press, the new dual type fighting/flying move. Tested with my Hawlucha against a wild Haunter. No damage at all.
