Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

How is the target of a random move decided in Doubles?

1 vote

By random moves I mean the likes of Thrash and Outrage, but also moves you can't decide yourself such as Sleep Talk, Metronome or Assist. Is there some logic behind what these moves hit in a Doubles battle like hitting the left opponent if you are on the left, or is it just completely random?

Why would logic be applied to a Game Freak game? Of course it's decided randomly!

Hope I helped. :)

Could you provide any of the sources?
Oh, sure!:
"In a double or triple battle, the target of this attack is randomly selected from all opposing Pokemon, even if they are not adjacent to the user."

And Sleep Talk, Metronome and Assist I just know from experience.
