How much do moves that raise your stats power them up?

The stats raise and lower in 6 stages each. Some moves raise the stat by one stage, but ones where it says "sharply increased" raise it by two stages.

The stages are: x1.5, x2.0, x2.5, x3.0, x3.5, x4.0. So, for example using Sword Dance which sharply increases Attack, will double your attack stat the first time. The second time it will be 3 times the original value.

The same stages apply for lowering stats, you just divide by those numbers instead. Two stages down and the stat is half of what it was.

And now Drastically is 3 stages...
