My rotom was behind a substitute but echoed voice damaged my rotom?!
How is this possible?

  1. Echoed voice hit me even though I had a substitute
  2. Echoed voice hit me even though I was a ghost type

What happened?

What Pokemon used Echoed Voice?

This is why...

Aurorus' ability Refrigerate turns Normal moves like Echoed Voice into Ice type moves, which means Echoed Voice can damage Rotom. Since sound-based moves like Echoed Voice hit though Substitutes in Generation 6, Rotom was damaged by the move.

Yep. Game Freak strikes again with their strange sense of logic!

Maybe the opposing Pokemon had Scrappy and it was a Sound-Based move that hit your Rotom. Sound-Based moves can hit behind Substitutes in Gen 6.

Oh wait, you had an Aurorus. xD

It's ability, Refrigerate, turns all it's moves into Ice-types moves and increases it's power by 30%. So, that explains why it hit your Rotom, and all Sound-based moves can now hit a Substitute in Generation VI.

So yeah. xD

Hope I helped. :)

The Pokemon you were facing was an Aurorus with the ability Refrigerate. Refrigerate makes all normal moves become Ice which is why it hit through a Ghost and Substitute.
