PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Haxmons battle rules are 100% flinch and 100% critical hit.
Now if I use a Pokemon with Inner Focus and another with Shell Armor, and my opponent has a Pokémon with Bite, will I get a flinched on my Inner Focus Pokémon and be critical hitted on my Shell Armor Pokémon? Since the rules are 100% effect.

I need a 100% correct answer to start building my Haxmons team.

What do you mean by "A Pokemon with Inner Focus and Shell Armor"
From what I understand, it seems like you're saying a Pokemon with both those abilities at once.
2 pokemons.
Abilities always negate effects, I'm pretty sure, as they negate the normal percentages by mechanics rather than just decreasing the percentage to 0.

Best answer

If you have Shell Armor, it is impossible to get hit by a critical hit, lest the Pokemon you are facing be wielding the abilities Mold Breaker, Teravolt or Turboblaze
This goes for Inner Focus as well. Even in haxmons battles, a Pokemon requires the abilities Mold Breaker, Teravolt or Turboblaze to crit or flinch you through Inner focus and Shell Armor

Shell Armor
> Shell Armor prevents Pokémon from receiving a critical hit.

Inner Focus
> Inner Focus prevents the Pokémon from flinching. Pokémon with this
> Ability can still flinch due to a Pokémon with Mold Breaker, Teravolt
> or Turboblaze.
