Photon Geyser

Photon Geyser deals damage, but uses either the user's Attack or Special Attack stat to determine its power, whichever is higher.

Given the uses the higher stat of the user.

Will PhotonGeyser become a physical move after Swords Dance?

Will Photon Geysers Power gets reduced when Burned and when Atk is high?

Even after Swords Dance will Photon Geysers damage be based on SpD stat?

I cant just figure out answers for these questions exactly.Pls help me out.

Thanks in Advance.

Will Photon Geyser become a physical move after Swords Dance?

Yes, as long attack is higher than special attack afte Swords Dance.

Will Photon Geysers Power gets reduced when Burned and when Atk is
high?

Yes, Photon Geysers becomes a physical move, the power will be halved when burn.

Even after Swords Dance will Photon Geysers damage be based on SpD
stat?

No. As answered before Photon Geyser becomes a Physical move and uses the opponents Physical Defense stat.

Some calculations:

"+4 252 Atk Necrozma-Ultra Photon Geyser vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Kyogre: 441-519 (129.3 - 152.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

The Def stat had no EVs and Photon Geyser after becoming Physical gaurantees OHKO."

"+2 252 Atk Neuroforce Necrozma-Ultra Photon Geyser vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Marshadow: 1072-1262 (333.9 - 393.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO"

hope I helped

Will Photon Geyser become a physical move after Swords Dance?

For determining which stat is higher, stat stage-modifiers are taken into account, but other effects (e.g. held items such as a Choice Band, Abilities such as Huge Power, burn, etc.) are not.

Yes, as long as attack is higher than special attack.

Will Photon Geysers Power gets reduced when Burned and when Atk is high?

Yes. When Photon Geysers becomes a physical move, the power will be halved by a burn. Burns affect the power of the move, not the attack stat itself.

Even after Swords Dance will Photon Geysers damage be based on SpD stat?

No. If Swords Dance is used and the attack is higher than Sp. Atk, then Photon Geyser becomes a Physical move and uses the opponents Physical Defense stat.
