Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

I'm pretty sure something went wrong on Showdown?

I had a Chandelure, lvl 70, vs a Munchlax that was level 95. They used Body Slam (don't ask why), and I tricked a Scarf to them. I proceeded to set up 6 Calm Minds, then attacked with HP Fighting. No OHKO. Why? Can someone run damage calcs please?

TBH this doesn't surprise me. Rhe difference in levels definitely has something to do with it. BTW, we can't run accurate damage calcs without knowing things like natures and EVs.
I know. But, still!
252SpAtk +6 Flash Fire Chandelure (Neutral) Hidden Power (Fighting) vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Thick Fat Munchlax (+SpDef): 111% - 131% (530 - 624 HP). Guaranteed OHKO.
The  only way to get that calulation above is if they are on the same level.
Oh yes. But really; how? I was at +6!

This is what you have above:

252SpAtk +6 Flash Fire Chandelure (Neutral) Hidden Power (Fighting) vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Thick Fat Munchlax (+SpDef): 111% - 131% (528 - 622 HP). Guaranteed OHKO.

The only way to get this is if they are both on the same level.


Below are all calcs that ran the same levels and EV setup as above. Obviously, I don't know the exact EVs, but hey. Each calc has a different nature that either raises, lowers, or does not effect SpDef on Munchlax.

Negative
252SpAtk +6 Flash Fire lvl 70 Chandelure (Neutral) Hidden Power (Fighting) vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Thick Fat lvl 95 Munchlax (-SpDef): 76% - 89% (342 - 404 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.

Neutral
252SpAtk +6 Flash Fire lvl 70 Chandelure (Neutral) Hidden Power (Fighting) vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Thick Fat lvl 95 Munchlax (Neutral): 68% - 80% (306 - 362 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.

Positive
252SpAtk +6 Flash Fire lvl 70 Chandelure (Neutral) Hidden Power (Fighting) vs 252HP/252SpDef Leftovers Thick Fat lvl 95 Munchlax (+SpDef): 62% - 73% (280 - 330 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.


No matter what, it is a 2HKO. You need to remember that Munchlax has awesome HP and nice SpDef.

Alright. Just doesn't really make sense logically; I'm at +4, plus a super-effective move. :9
