Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Paralysis mechanics?

0 votes

When a Pokemon is paralysed, is it's speed affected beyond just moving last? For example, if a paralysed Pokemon used gyro ball, would it always strike at full power? Would a paralysed Pokemon always move first under trick room? Or does it just always move last, and stuff like gyro ball power is unaffected?

Also, out of personal curiosity, say my Pokemon was paralysed and couldn't move. If I had selected earthquake and my opponent had selected sucker punch, would it still hit my mon?

Paralysis will cut a Pokemon's speed by 25%. Paralysis doesn't affect priority so gyro ball will be powered up, it will usually move first during trick room. If the opponent used sucker punch it will hit first so it works because you don't know if you can move yet.
