I came up with a Double Battle strategy where my Pyroar uses Noble Roar on my Gothitelle, where each individual stat drop would activate Competitive, resulting in a +3 Special Attack boost.
I got the idea when I used Noble Roar on a wild Defiant Pawniard.
However, when I tested it out in the Battle Maison, something weird happened. The move animation didn't occur, and all that happened was a Special Attack drop on Gothitelle.
Is this a glitch of some kind?
