Boost Items

    I don't bring this up out of a need for help, neccessarily, but because this is something that is not made very clear on the site, so I figured it'd be appropriate to post this. If not, of course, closure of the thread is the best move, provided I'm nudged in the direction of the right place to ask.

    In the PotW for Moltres, it is stated that Charcoal is no longer a 10% boost, and is now a 20% boost.

    However, in the items section for Pearl and Diamond, it says it's a 10% boost still. Which one is wrong?

    Also, if Charcoal is indeed now 20%, what about Miracle Seed, Mystic Water, Sharp Beak, etc.? Are those still 10%, or is the boost across the board?

    Furthermore, why do those get a percent rate, but the Plates and other boosting items don't? Is no one sure what they boost for or something?

    I'm not trying to come across as a whiner. I love the site, it's been very handy for me, and has increased my knowledge of the games tenfold. I just feel like this is a kink in an otherwise good system that could use some sorting out.

    I believe Charcoal, Mystic Water, etc all have a 20% boost to here assigned type now. Also I think plates have a 10% boost.

    If so, interesting. Where do incenses rank, then? Same as plates?
     
  4. All 'Slight Boost' items give 20%.

    These are

    Plates
    Charcoal + co.
    Incenses
    Expert Belt
    and a few others.

    I'm pretty sure the plates give a 33% boost

    33%?!

    I might start using them, then. Now, is that just for when Aruceus uses them?

    33%! Whoah! That's a pretty good amount for an item I though sux hard. They might be useful when combined with STAB, thanks for that info!

    Don't forget I'm not 100% on it...
     
  11. It CAN'T be 33%. That would completely obsoletise the Boost Items. Its 20% like everything else.

    Still, 20% is no chopped liver. It can easily help make OHKO's a reality, and keep the foe sweating.

    Can't imagine it'd be 33%, someone would've noticed by now. 20% seems more likely to me.
