I seem to recall that it does but I'm in an argument and have no proof

Hi, I couldn't replay to you on my wall because I didn't have permission,
But that was a real question i meant I lied about the breeding 100 times part, but the question was real, so please read carefully before hiding my
questions, thank you.
Also, what I meant by i did it five times was I hatched the egg five times.

Prior to gen 6, Grass types were affected by Spore. As of Gen 6 however, Grass types, Pokemon with the Ability Overcoat and Pokemon holding the Item Safety Googles are immune to Spore.

I believe it did in prior to Generation VI, but the game mechanics were changed in Gen VI, so it wouldn't affect Grass types. This is the same case with Electric type Pokémon and Thunder Wave, being that Thunder Wave now cannot affect Electric-type Pokémon, as they cannot be paralyzed.

>Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are now immune to Spore.


Thanks for the answer. Flaf got BA just because he answered first but I appreciate both. +1

Nope. Spore counts as a powder move, just like Poison and Sleep Powder.
