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

Best answer

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-)

it isn't the same thing but it is wrong though
I really should hide this, my phone is slow and by the time I was finished the other two answers were already up. And who downvoted me? This has nothing wrong.
dat lag
well what are you waiting for lol
Who downvoted this?
me... :P
Whoever downvoted, remove your votes. It doesn't matter if the answers were posted a few minutes apart, so don't start rambling because of that.
I did because it was no use of adding this answer because there was already two correct answers.
but the answer is wrong tho
and jcm's point to
not technically wrong because it relies on speed but..
That's exactly what was said.
Also, none of the above Answers gave an actual example, so JCM's comment is wrong.
His answer is 100% correct. Also, he has been here than both of you Pika & JCM. I'm sure he knows the rules. UPVOTE for giving an example.
I don't know how to say this...I'm a girl? But it's ok.
*Her
*She
I can expect this from TP, but JCM that is disappointing. Maybe Rapi was a slow typer and started first. I would've gave this BA.
She was on his phone. I know that feel bro...
EDIT: Sry for gender bender
UP, Rapidash is a girl, not a guy :P
Look, i am sorry, Rapidash. Also sorry for disappointing you, Ninja. I'll do better next time and think before acting.
Just because I spoke up, she gets massive upvotes? Confuzzling but awesome :D
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.
