Which 5??That makes five Abilities with misleading/incomplete descriptions, which honestly leads me to believe that there are more out there. The -Ate abilities are still under debate as to whether there multipliers have been nerfed to 1.2x, or if they stayed at 1.3x. But either way, neither of those multipliers are NOT what I'd consider a "little boost", as their descriptions say. A part of me thinks that it's worth testing every ability out in strange scenarios just to make sure no stones have been left unturned.
yeah looks like someone added that to the OP fsr... thanks for clearing it up.I didn't fully understand what '"Self" KO' is supposed to mean, but I can confirm that Power of Alchemy does activate if your ally KO's itself with Memento or Explosion. For example, if a Prankster Whimsicott used Memento, its partner A-Muk would get Prankster after it faints.
See if Scald has an increased burn chance in sunlight. I always used that as my troll hypothetical, but apparently we can't rule out anything anymore...I'm trying to think of stuff that sounds feasible, like Dancer having any hidden interactions at all (hint: there are none), but god it's hard to think of stuff as absolutely out of the box as this crap we've been discovering.

Five? What are the others besides Prankster and Water Bubble?
He meant WB, Pster and the three -ate abilities (although there are four now), because their desc says that the boost is 'a little' (which is only as misleading as you make it, since 'a little' is a subjective term).Which 5??
No, it doesn't.Does Thunder Wave get 100% accuracy when used by an electric type, in the same vein toxic works with poison types?
I instead thought it is the least likely, and yet it would add an actually good flavour of story integration, given that Cresselia is the one who can lift Darkrai's curse according to the lore.I can't test Cresselia (which is disappointingly the most likely of these three) but the other two are busts.
Video'd it first properly crediting UltiMario: https://twitter.com/pokemon_PhD/status/799130721902329857 PhillyBeatzU gets his info from researchers without crediting.Not sure if this has been posted yet but King's Shield attack drop now happens even if the user is immune to the contact move. This is according to Phillip Beatty on Twitter.
Yes. Immune to any move summoned by a Prankster-boosted move. Tested with Nature Power and Assist specifically.Are Dark types immune to Prankster-boosted Nature Power, Copycat and Mirror Move ?
Dark types are immune to any Prankster-boosted moves that transform into moves that target it, even if that move is a damaging move. This extends to those three listed as well as Metronome.Are Dark types immune to Prankster-boosted Nature Power, Copycat and Mirror Move ?
Checked user's acc by using Thunder Wave many, many, many times. Roughly an 87% certainty that Illuminate does not effect the user's accuracy. After god knows how many attempts on 100 Acc moves, I haven't gotten a miss, so I'm not seeing anything there either. On a whim, I can also confirm it doesn't provide a Dark Void immunity, I guess...Well with all this random boosts I figure why not ask. Does Illuminate give any Accuracy boost / reduction now?
This is about the 25th time its been asked- no, it doesn't. This should probably be added to OP so people stop asking.Run Away - maybe it protects from trapping and/or switch-out Pursuit?
