Can Sap-sipping raise my attack higher than usually possible?

0 votes

So, I was using my Boofles(a bouffalant w/ a nickname), and I had been using swords dance. you cant raise your attack higher than 6 stages with SD, when SUDDENLY! I was used a grass move upon! would this still raise my attack if it was already at the highest I can raise it?

P.S this never actually happened, and I dont own a Boofles, but I was just curious, because the sap-sipper page on Pokemon DB never said it couldnt. Just curious

No, sap sipper would not raise its attack any higher. This would only grant immunity to the grass move and would not give any further boost. +6 is the highest your attack will get raised.

If a Pokemon with Sap Sipper is at +6 Attack and is targeted by a Grass-type move, it will still be immune to the Grass-type attack but will not receive further Attack boosts.

So no, It cannot get any further attack boosts. Source
