Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why isn't my idea working ?

0 votes

I have an Unfeazant with Facade, I gave it a Flame Orb and Challenged the Elite four.When the user is burned Facades power doubles, but my Unfeazant can't cause more damage than the 1/4 of the foes HP. Why ? It's attack is 256.

what level is it?
He is level 89
Also, 256 power is not extremely high so that may also be an issue. (I do not knnow those trouble cause I  used a Genesect as my flyer)
Well, this is an epic fail..

Okay,i know the problem.. Generally, if a Pokémon is burned, it will lose a set amount of HP every turn, and its damage dealt by Physical moves will be halved.So give it a toxic orb and then it will do double power.Your idea should work then.

This is what Bulbapedia says when using facade:

Facade inflicts damage. Its base power doubles from 70 to 140 if the
user is poisoned, paralyzed, or burned. Burn's effect of lowering
attack is still applied, unless the user has Guts

Yes, it does.

OK. So, Unfezant uses Facade.

The modifiers:
- Facade gets double power because it is burned...
- Unfezant gets halved attack because it is burned.
ok then....
But if a pokemon with guts had poison would it do even more damage or does it just cancel the lowering affect?
Guts:Increases attack by 1.5 and negates the attack drop caused by Burn
