There are also other bugs with Doom Desire I reported multiple times, but got no reaction and they weren't fixed.Hello.
- In Gen 4 on Pokémon Showdown, Doom Desire always ignores boosts from items, even when Jirachi is still out of its Poké Ball. This is maybe the case in other generations but I didn't test. In this testing battle the Skarmory only took 282 instead of 358-423 (calc below) which would have OHKO it.
- In the Damage Calculator, in Generation 3 and 4, Doom Desire is affected by the hit Pokémon's type:
252+ SpA Choice Specs Jirachi Doom Desire (120 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD (70 SpD) Skarmory: 179-211 (53.5 - 63.1%).
252+ SpA Choice Specs Jirachi Doom Desire (120 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD (70 SpD) Steel-typeless Skarmory: 358-423 (107.1 - 126.6%).
Also, if you take time to correct this in the Damage Calculator, can you update Pokémons sets in it pls..
- If the user of Doom Desire stays in and has the ability Normalize, Doom Desire still hits as a steel-typed move (which should only be the case if the user of Doom Desire doesn't stay in after using it).
- Doom Desire ignores the boost of Adaptability, which should apply when the user stays in.
