Best answer

Stab adds a 1.5x bonus to attacks so it upps the 65P Spark to 97.5 (1.5x65=97.5)
The Dread Plate adds a 1.2x bonus to dark type attacks and you get the 2x from it being super effective so the power of bite would be 144 (1.2x2x60=144)

So Bite with a Dread Plate and it being super effective would be alot better than STAB neutral Spark.

thanks also im overleveling luxio so yeah :P
How'd you get 192? When I calculated it I got 144.
Also, Spark and Bite are both physical, so its stats wouldn't matter.
spark is physical? idk that :P
1.2+2+3.2. 3.2*60=192
It's 1.2 x 2 x 65.
Bite is 60 damage and im pretty sure its 1.2+2
I'm almost positive you multiply the boosts and the base power. Le Scraf has it right.
I've done hours of research on this. The BP theory goes like this:

BP x STAB x Item Boost x Effectiveness
so its 144 not 192? done.
