Will Multiscale affect Stealth Rock damage?

0 votes

For example if a full health Multiscale Dragonite switches in on Stealth Rock, will it do the normal 1/4 damage or 1/8 because of Multiscale halving the damage of a super effective attack?

Nope it takes the regular 1/4 damage, as multiscale doesn't protect the holder from passive damage, such as status and entry hazards, but only halves the damage from damaging attacks.

Oh and set damage moves, like seismic toss and dragon rage, deal normal damage
Thanks!
