I was in the Grand Trial against Hala, and I sent out my Noibat for his Machop. Pretty standard matchup, right? I used Gust and it did about a third of Machop’s HP. It used Revenge and it did an unsurprisingly large amount (just over half of Noibat’s HP). Then I used Roost because I thought “That only did that much because I attacked it first” but even having not attacked it in the same turn, Revenge still did the same amount of damage. Why is this?

Pretty simple.
When you attack, it does double damage.
But when you roost, you lose flying type and your fighting resistance.
Thus:
(You attack)
60 into 1.5 into 2 into 1/2= 90 atk power
(You roost and lose flying type)
60 into 1.5(stab) = 90 atk power
That's why same same damage.
Hope I helped!
