Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does Illusion trick the AI?

2 votes

I don't have much experience with Zorua/ark (by that I mean I've never used one in-game) and I wanted to know, does it trick the AI?
For example, I send out my Zoroark and it uses Illusion to look like my Arcanine against a (trainer) Pokemon with Brick Break and Aqua Jet. Would that trainer use Brick Break or Aqua Jet?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: If a trainer Pokemon has a move that is SE against your Pokemon, it will always use it.

They probably are tricked.

The AI in the games isn't known for being overwhelmingly...clever.

It probably does trick them into thinking it's some other Pokemon, but that still doesn't mean they would use a move that's super effective against any of those, but it probably increases the chances.

I can't confirm this as info on it isn't overflowing the internet, but it would be my best assumption.

Hope this helps.
