Ooh some good information, mind if I quote some of this? :D
You do realise it's not complete right xD
it is complete, i dont consider the damage taken a "stat change".
You forgot weather moves, like Rain causing Thunder to hit 100%, you might want to add these.
Pfft, skrubs. I have all of that.
Again, PX, accuracy isnt a stat, read the question.
