It increases by 50%. So, if you have a Jolteon that knows Thunder, then the base power would go up from 120 to 180, since both Thunder and Jolteon are Electric type.

Oops, my bad sorry linkpower. You had Thunderbolt as base power 90 originally, and I wanted to change that, but I'd rather not have it be a decimal for power. So I chose Thunder, but accidentally gave it 160 instead of 180. Sorry about that.
It's okay. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes.
120% to 180? or 170?
cuz it increases by **50%** right?
