PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Hi so, I was playing M.D DX and I was thinking about how awful bide was in this game, until I thought "what if you brought an under leveled Pokemon to a boss, had them use a move like Taunt or Follow Me, and Bide so they take all the hits, revive them with a reviver seed each time? Would this strengthen the power of bide or will it reset when the Pokemon Faints?" Would this be possible?

Please don't post an answer if you're not absolutely sure it is accurate. This question has received multiple guess answers.

Bide stops when the Pokémon faints and uses a Reviver Seed

So, I tested this with Pachirisu. I had Pachirisu use Bide against a Pokémon stronger than it. (In this case, Cherrim) Cherrim attacked Pachirisu by using Petal Dance, causing Pachirisu to faint and use a Reviver Seed. Cherrim still kept using Petal Dance, and when I was revived, it didn't say the message "Pachirisu is storing energy."
Also, let's say I used Bide, and Cherrim made me faint by using Take Down, which actually happened. (When you use Bide, you can't move.) Since Bide would make me unable to move, when I was revived by the Reviver Seed, I was able to move.

Therefore, you stop using Bide when the Pokémon using Bide faints and is revived using a Reviver Seed. Hope this helps!
