How much of a boost does Battery give to ally special attacks?
Special Z-Moves function normally regardless of user or item. Ex Life Orb Arceus can use Pulverizing Pancake.Some clarification on this: with those Special Z-Moves, is it possible to hack them so as to use them without a Z-Crystal as a held item? How about on Pokemon other than their typical users? (These questions are for Balanced Hackmons, basically)
Yes, this is true. Fell Stinger now gives a +3 Attack boost. If I'm remembering correctly, it's also had its power raised to 50.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 Attack by 3 or more levels when it K.O.s a Pokémon?
No priority change to Quash.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.
YesThanks. When this happens, can their 1 PP be restored by a Leppa Berry?
For pursuit-like priority, we'd need some sort of trigger to go along with it. I can't really think of any trigger that would be relevant to Quash, so I'm pretty positive the move still does nothing but up a TM slot.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.
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 GameFreak insists on making it useless. Oh well.For pursuit-like priority, we'd need some sort of trigger to go along with it.

I've tested this forwards and backwards: Level difference doesn't matter. Enemy HP doesn't matter. Berserk doesn't have some hidden effect blocking Emergency Exit (by the way, I'm guessing someone said Sheer Force doesn't stop Emergency Exit in the thread already because it's in the OP, but whoever said it was lying, it totally does). I've tested even the most asinine details, like if Gender impacts EE or if Pulse moves for some bizarre reason suppress it. Under the circumstances described, Emergency Exit should have always triggered.I was fighting a wild female Drampa with my False Swipe Golisopod. The Golisopod was above 50% and the Drampa was at 1HP. I was waiting for the female Drampa to call help, because I wanted to catch a male one.
Pretty sure the Drampa was at +1 because of its Ability. It used Dragon Pulse on my Golisopod and took me down to just above red from above 50%. I used Full Restore. A few turns later it took me down to below 50% again. Emergency Exit never activated.
My Golisopod had a far higher level.
This is only a wild guess but it's probably tied to PID.Does the color of Minior's core depend on anything like Nature, IVs, etc., or is it completely random?
It was holding Leftovers and now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that I subbed to <50% in the battle, healed with Full Restore and then was taken below 50% by DPulse when I didn't have a Substitute.This is only a wild guess but it's probably tied to PID.
There's already documentation that Substitute bypasses EE, but if you went above half later in the battle it should've still triggered once you were brought down below half.It was holding Leftovers and now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that I subbed to <50% in the battle, healed with Full Restore and then was taken below 50% by DPulse when I didn't have a Substitute.
Maybe reaching below 50% through the use of Substitute messes with EE for the rest of the battle?
I'm certain that Drampa took me from above 50% to below 50% when I didn't have a Substitute without activating EE. Twice.
I might have used an Adrenaline Orb during that battle.
The Drampa had Dragon Breath, Dragon Pulse, Safeguard and Extrasensory iirc.
No.Since Normal type Z-move is still Normal-type even with Pixilate/Aerilate/Refrigerate/Galvanize...
If you put a signature Z-move like Pulverizing Pancake in a normal move slot, is it affected by those abilities ?
I'm trying to recreate this right now in the cave where Drampa are. I haven't found a Drampa yet, but I ran into a Golbat.There's already documentation that Substitute bypasses EE, but if you went above half later in the battle it should've still triggered once you were brought down below half.
