Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does Spikes work just like Stealth Rock?

0 votes

What I'm asking is, do Spikes do a set amount of damage, or does it vary based on the target's resistance/weakness to Ground-type attacks? For example, do Spikes damage Heatran more than they damage Parasect?

I found my answer.  I still think this question should remain here, in case someone else has the same question.  (Somebody answer this please, it's not hard.)

No its doesnt

The damage from spikes is calculated by how many you put and flying and levitate Pokemon will not be damaged by spikes.

1 layer will do 1/8
2 layers will do 1/6
3+ layers will do 1/4

Stealth rocks depends on the Pokemon type.

Type Effectivness Damage
x0.25 Effective 1/32 of Max HP (3.125%)
x0.5 Effective 1/16 of Max HP (6.25%)
x1 Effective 1/8 of Max HP (12.5%)
x2 Effective 1/4 of Max HP (25%)
x4 Effective 1/2 of Max HP (50%)

So its impossible to K.O a full health Pokemon with entry hazard

Hope I helped! :D

Yes it does. Read the chart on the image below, V

enter image description here

See the chart? It says that 1 layer of spikes does 1/8 damage to a Pokemon that lands on it. 2 layers does 1/6, and last but not least 3 layers does 1/4 damage.


Hope I helped!
