Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is it possible to OHKO a Lugia?

1 vote

If you had a Lugia at lvl.100 and the multiscale ability, and IVs in every stat, and had an EV spread and nature where needed (so if it took a physical hit then imagine it had 252 HP / 252 Defense, with a defense boosting nature; and if it took a special hit then imagine it had 252 HP / 252 SP. Defense with a SP. defense boosting nature), would it ever die from one hit, at 100% health, from any Pokemon and any attack?

EDIT: Discluding any OHKO moves such as fissure. Sorry, but I already knew about those ones.

Please also put calculations in the answers, thank you!

Best answer

It has come to my extensive research that I found out a Pokemon can One shot a Lugia with the lugia that fits your Criteria and that would be both Kyurem-B and W

Kyurem-B KO punch : 252+ Atk Choice Band Teravolt Kyurem-B Freeze Shock vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Lugia: 552-650 (132.6 - 156.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ SpA Choice Specs Turboblaze Kyurem-W Ice Burn vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Lugia: 488-576 (117.3 - 138.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

I have a clip of Kyurem - W getting an OHKO Here

252+ Atk Choice Band Mold Breaker Rampardos Head Smash vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Lugia: 576-680 (138.4 - 163.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Please note this is due to the effects of Mold Breaker / Teravolt / Turboblaze which in fact negate the effect of Multiscale.

With OHKO moves like sheer cold, and stuff like this

+6 252+ SpA Dread Plate Arceus-Dark Judgment vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Multiscale Lugia: 429-505 (103.1 - 121.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

:D First answer!
Are you sure you've done the calculations right? I didn't get anywhere near that figure, and could you please put the calculations in your answer? I'll try again too.
What do you mean put the calculations in my answer? I just used a damage calc
A level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters; by receiving the effects of Helping Hand from two allies in a triple battle, holding a Metronome, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power, a conversion to Ice, and 6 stages of positive Attack stat changes. Also, both of Shuckle's partners must have the Ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 5th turn of using a Defense Curl-boosted Ice Ball (learned via Mimic) consecutively without any misses, if used against a level 1 Gible with minimum Defense stats, that has 6 stages of negative Defense stat changes (such as from being subject to Screech 3 times), and being under the effect of Forest's Curse it can deal 721,899,685 damage with a critical hit.  

Under the same circumstances lugia would be as much of a goner as gible

Yes, Guillotine bad chance of hitting but it could hit

Horn Drill, and Sheer Cold will work too but not Fissure doesn't effect the Lugia
what about roost or gravity ring target dig smack down etc?
