Using Minus, Plus, Minus in a triple battle?

4 votes

If you had in a triple battle Pokemon with the ability Plus in the middle and two Pokemon with the ability Minus on either side. Would the middle one get a 2x S.attack boost? and would both the Pokemon on the sides get the S.def boosts?

I'm pretty sure that the answer is no, because they only work in double battles.
It would be to overpowering if it worked in triple battles.
Actually it does work in triple battles. [Bulbapedia says so.][1]

Tested it and with some research. I've found that it Does in fact stack so it's like a nasty plot. And I'm pretty sure that everyone get the double S.Atk boost. BTW, Why would the pokemon on the sides get S.Def boosts?

Pokemon with the ability Minus get their S.def boosted when in a multiple pokemon battle paired with a Pokemon with Plus.
Hmm. I thought the pokemon with minus get their S.Atk up too not their S.Def cause it says that they get their S.Atk gets raised with a plus pokemon. [Minus page.][1]
