How did Earthquake hit my Talonflame?

0 votes

On the first turn, my Talonflame used Brave Bird then Electivire used Earthquake, it wasn't effective on Talonflame. On next turn Electivire used Earthquake and it killed my Talonflame O.o.

PS: I wasn't holding any gravity item(iron ball etc.) Gravity was never used.

Do you have any proof? The replay? If not this could possibly be a troll question.
My Battle recorder is full.So i couldn't record it:/ i erase most of the videos because of that
People even do troll questions here?O.o

If Gravity wasn't in use and you weren't holding an item that affects levitating Pokémon, then the only explanation is that you used Roost on that turn.
If a Flying type Pokémon uses Roost, their Flying typing is taken away for that turn, making them vulnerable to Ground attacks and other moves that would usually not affect them.
I find this highly likely, as you probably predicted the switch and used Roost.

Another possibility is that you were hit by Smack Down, and somehow survived.
