a question about sturdy and focus sash

0 votes

Say that a pokemon had sturdy an recover or any HP restoring move. What if you already got damaged and then he restored HP to full then got hit with a move that would KO the pokemon. Will that pokemon stay alive or faint since it was already damaged? Is it the same for focus sash too?

In addition to Sturdy's previous effect, Sturdy now works like a Focus Sash, causing the Pokémon to have 1 HP remaining if an attack's hit would have brought it from full health to 0 HP. Sturdy will activate as long as a Pokémon has full HP, and can therefore be used multiple times if brought back to full health. If a Pokémon with Sturdy is holding a Focus Sash, Sturdy will activate first. Final Gambit will KO a Pokémon with Sturdy even if its HP is full. -Bulbepedia

Sturdy will activate, as long as the Pokemon has full HP.
Hope This Helped :D
