How does Trick Room work?

0 votes

Does it just make the sower pokemon faster than the faster pokemon or does it just give the slow pokemon priority?

Slower Pokemon move first in the turn for 5 turns.

i don't get that

I'll explain this with an example:
Musharna vs. Serperior
Turn #1
Serperior used Leaf Blade!
Let's say it does damage but doesn't kill it
Musharna used Trick Room!
Turn #2
Musharna used Psychic!

Since Musharna's speed isn't that great unless you EV train, it becomes faster with Trick Room. So basically, it causes the slower Pokémon in a battle to become faster.
Hope this helps! (-o-)

You're lucky I'm a naturally forgiving person ;) I accept your apology.
Well duh :D. Still, it was a good answer. Deserves dat vote.
Also hidden my negative comments :P
That's what happens when a mod does something :P
Exactly.

It has to do with the Speed stat

Lowest Speed = First
Highest Speed = Last

Note: Moves like Aqua Jet, Extremespeed etc. still go first, Trick Room or not.

When Trick Room is activated, normal Speed priority is reversed for the move's duration. So Pokemon who usually go last will go first. -Smogon

So basically, the Pokemon that is slower will go before the the faster opponent.
