Does Bug Bite steals Berry Juice ?

0 votes

Hello people!

I was wondering if Spinarak could be worth of a use in LC with Agility and Life Orb alongside Bug Bite to steal Berries, but as Berry Juice is very common in LC, will it be stolen by Bug Bite?

I would test it, but using or watching Showdown crashes my Laptop, for some weird reasons.

Thanks for both.

Ordinarily, 20 HP healing is not a very big deal, and in just about all cases is outclassed by Sitrus Berry, which is a poor item in most tiers regardless. The one exception to this general rule is Little Cup, where most Pokemon have around 20 HP and so this item is able to bring them back to full health even if they are on the verge of death, and cannot be removed by Bug Bite or Pluck, unlike Oran Berry. In fact, it's so good that it was banned for being overpowered, so cannot be used there regardless. Oh well.

So, no it can't be stolen

I BA Torterra for letting him gain some points and thus making it easier for him to get 500 points to create Tags. Do not think that I did not BA you because you have more points than me.
Thank you, it helped :D
