In game Question. My Machop(in Training,(Brave Nature w/ No-Guard:) playing through Diamond:) was Fighting a Geodude. I used Low Kick, Geodude was slightly over half HP. It used Defense Curl. I then used Low Kick Again and It Ko'd. No crit. Whats up?

No, Defense Curl does not make you heavier. However, when you attack, there is a small amount of randomness to the attack. At low levels the opponents have low HP so a few HP more damage makes a bigger difference.

So even if Geodude's defense was boosted a little, Low Kick could do a few more HP damage and KO Geodude.
