Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

A question about Trick...

0 votes

"Switches hold items with the target. This move does not work if the target has Sticky Hold or Multitype, or is Giratina-O, or if either Pokémon is holding Mail. This move works even if the user has no item, but will fail if the user or target has had an item Knocked Off" - Smogon

Why won't it work on Giratina-O or a Pokemon with Multitype? Giratina-O is a Ghost type and Trick is Psychic type, so the NO EFFECT Rule does not apply here.

Best answer

Giratina:
His stats and ability change.


With Orb:
Origin Form: Higher Attack & Special Attack
Ability: Levitate

Without Orb:
Altered Form: Higher Defense & Special Defense
Ability: Pressure


In a nutshell, Tricking the Griseous Orb off does more to Giratina then other Pokemon because the added changes.
