Why would it get weaker?
Isn’t that how it works with trap moves?
No, they don't lower stats or anything, just do damage at the end of each turn (4-5 turns).

Thunder Cage is a move that is has a base power of 80. After the move is used, the enemy can't switch out from non-pivoting moves. The target affected takes 12% damage every turn for 4-5 turns due to the trapping effect.

So if you were asking about if the trap effect deals base 80 damage every turn, then no, but if you meant that Thunder Cage's power doesn't change every turn, then yes.

Thunder Cage does not get weaker over time.

Deals damage and traps opponent, damaging them for 4-5 turns.

It just does damage, traps the opponent, and does damage at the end of each turn (till they are freed). Just think of it has Whirlpool or Fire Spin but stronger.

Oh man I was just going to answer and you did it like five seconds before me.
