Would dry skin + weakness policy work?

0 votes

Simply, if I used a fire move on a toxicroak, would its weakness policy activate from dry skin or would the policy ignore its ability?

I dont think it would, because technically it does 25% more damage, not 200%

It doesn't.

Tested it myself on PS!

Since Toxicroak is not weak to Fire moves as a type combination, Weakness Policy does
not get activated.

While you can't actually see it, the Toxicroak does have Weakness Policy as an item.
Dang, Ill hide my answer then :P
Thanks for going to the length of testing it Infinity. :)
Sorry for replying so late..

No problem at all. Besides, this was a good question, and I was curios too!

Anyway, thanks for the BA!
Damn, I knew I should have edited that out. Thanks lel
