Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Which would be more effective?

1 vote

Me And my friend are about to do all STAB battles, and some of my pokemon are single types, so I might find my self using some items that power up one type of move, and I wanted to know which would be more affective, the common item used to power that type of move, or an Arceus plate? Eg. Miracle seed or Grass plate?

They both boost your stats by 1.2% normal damage, even mabye Spash Plate and Mystic Water or Icicle Plate and NeverMeltIce. Both are worth as much as each other.

As said before, Gems are also a choice, raising the power by 50%, which would be excellent if it was a reusable item, but they are not, so...

Since the Plates are Simpler to find, all Located in Abyssal Ruins, I would try using the Plates.

I would go for the grass plate if it was a grass type But miracle seed would help as well.

I was asking what the differences in the boosts were? That was just an example, same applies for charcoal mystic water, etc. Against their type plates

Miracle seed and grass plate both boost the same amount of power , which is boost 1.2x the normal damage

Ex. grass type move with 50 damage, powered up by seed/plate, become 50 x 1.2 = 60 base damage

And all of the type-booster item will always boost 20% more from the base damage or 1.2x the base damage, even with the incenses (type-booster only)

BUT with the gems you can find in dusts in any cave in pokemon black & white, you can get a 50% boost power!!! Well, as you know, gems can only used once, so if you use the gems, choose your move carefully...
