Harshly is two stages, right?

I’m playing SP and Chimchar used Leer, says it harshly fell. Isn’t that two or three stages when it’s supposed to be one?

Did the Pokémon have simple? Bidoof is common and can have simple.
I was fighting first route bidoofs. Now I feel like an idiot thanks

Simple doubles the effectiveness of stat stages.

Like AlphaSapphire said, it's the reason most likely. One of Bidoof's Ability is Simple and it's common in the wild, which is why Defense harshly fell.
