Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is Stealth Rock's effectiveness based on?

0 votes

How does the game calculate Stealth Rock's effectiveness?
Like how most Pokemon only lose a few percentage in health, while some can lose up to half!

Most Fying types lose 50% of their health from Stealth Rock, but is it because of their Rock weakness?
What about other types that have Rock as a weakness?

Ahh, so it IS because of its weakness... Thanks! ~
Yeah and if a pokemon is resistant lets say rock does 1/2 damage then stealth rock only does 1/16 (1/2 over 8)
Oh dang 8 minutes off
