    I'm 95% sure it costs 2%? From the db, "Protect costs a base 2% energy [...] plus an additional 1/3 the damage that would have been sustained if the attack had successfully hit, rounded up to the nearest percent." Taunt doesn't deal damage, and zero rounded is still zero, so I think it would be 2 + (1/3)(0) = 2.

    edit: If MF is right then I also have been doing Protect wrong all my life, so I might not be much help here.

    Off the top of my head, I think that's right. Might see about double-checking it at a more reasonable hour, though.

    Also, I think the +1% Negrek mentioned on Protect while blocking a non-damaging move is a standard cost for blocking something, even if it's something with null BP.

    I'm clearly keeping a very close eye since there hasn't been a DQ warning.

    Take your time, really.

    Ah, good to know. Thanks!

    I can work that into the flavor :)

    I've searched the 'verse for a precedent on multiple uses of Protect, and I found this. Is there any particular algorithm you used for it? From what I can see, there was a 50% chance that the second attempt would work, and the chance reset after the second attempt was successful?

    Also, I'm thinking that if crab guy pulls off this one-action Solar Beam, the chances of a successful second Protect are gonna go down further.

    Haha! Well, I think I'll give Tommy a slightly more optimistic end. That'd be a crummy way to go. I'm... strangely emotional about Dotcom and Tommy fainting? Like they're characters in a book and I'm killing them off O_o

    So a Taunted Pokemon uses Struggle when it has no viable commands - does a Tormented Pokemon do the same?

    I'd say 5% plus the extra energy is well worth the advantages of pinching a move from your opponent's repertoire.

    I could squeeze it in, but it'd come with a higher energy cost and lower accuracy.
