    I once learned that If you had an attack like say Fire Blast, and the user of that attack is a fire type like say Charizard, the attack would not have have 120 power but instead 1.5 times as powerful to equal 180. 180 is superior to hyper beam and it has no side effects. I am not sure if that only works with the special types like Fire, Water, Grass, Electr, Phychic, Ice, Dragon and Dark or all of them. For instance if I had my Hitmonchan use Focus Punch, would that do 225 power instead of 150?

    Another thing when you raise a stat in battle, how much exactly does it improve and what about shaprly improving?

    Please only answer if you are sure of it.

    first question; yes, it does work so, and it's called STAB. it works on special attacks as well.

    second question; one improve is by 50%, and 'sharply' improving is by 100%.

    So if I were to use Calm mind 12 times with my mewtwo he would temperarily have 999 sp att?

    #Gecko# The Essential One

    No, cause you can raise your stats up to 400%(6 Calm Minds), but I think it reaches that high or higher
  6. DarkPsychoBoost

    DarkPsychoBoost Future World Emperor

    And thats why mewtwo is uber
    999 sp atk + 999 sp def = p.w.n = r.i.p

    So that's what stab is. I've always wonder.
  8. Incarnati0n

    Incarnati0n Just as planned.

    but don't forget that dual types only get a 0.25 bonus.
    charmeleon uses fire blast.
    120 * 1.5 = 180, because charmeleon is a fire type
    charizard uses fire blast.
    120 * 1.25 = 150, because charizard is fire/flying

    and STAB works for special AND physical moves

    Why should charizard only get a o.25 boost? Since when does flying lower a fire-attack? STAB is always a 0.5 boost, but some pokemon have 2 stab types.

    Another thing, say my beastly Ursarang uses Hyper beam, because he is normal, does hyperbeam get boosted to 225?

    Yes, Hyper Beam gets STAB. All damaging moves get STAB, except for moves with preset damage (Seismic Toss, Dragon Rage, etc.).
  12. Incarnati0n

    Incarnati0n Just as planned.

    i believe dual types only get a 0.25 bonus... i can remember it form the pokemon stadium 2 acadamy

    *edit* sorry, i was wrong. ignore what i said

    DON'T HURT ME ;_;

    Seems weird that Normals would have STAB but alright. I guessing that Focus Punch is better though because it has the chance of being super effective and the enemy might not attack or they're most likely dead.

    Is there a chart that list pokemon from highest of a certain stat to lowest?
  14. Incarnati0n

    Incarnati0n Just as planned.

    not from highest to lowest, but there is a top 5 somewhere at smogon, but i don't have the url

    By the way, STAB means Same Type Attack Bonus, in case you didn't know.

    1. So between my friend and I we have Emeral, Ruby, Fire and Leaf. Simple question can we complete national dex?

    2. Say I used exp.share on my lv 5 larvitar through the Elite 4 and used the exp to get him to 100 with out a single battle on his part. Would this be bad? Why? Is there anything I can do about it if he is at like lv80?
  17. Answers in bold.

    You can complete the dex except for Ho-oh, lugia, deoxy's, jirachi, mew, celebi. However you can get Ho-oh and lugia by buying XD and colloseum.

    I belief that Lunatone can only be caught on Saphire

    You'll need sapphire (lunatone), XD(lugia), and colloseum(Ho-oh) to complete the pokedex. Except for mew, celebi, and deoxys. As of right now they cannot be found anywhere in any game.
