    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Could you eat up an opponent's heals by repeatedly Heal Pulsing them at like 98% health? Would Heal Pulse's energy cost actually be 1% there or is it always half the potential amount, like Wish?

    veekun finally deployed a few days ago and it has Magic Coat and Role Play straight now for the record.

    If you can actually manage a five-Rollout chain, your opponent kinda had it coming.

    Oh, I like that. Yeah, I'll do that. EDIT: The opponent who ordered Dig posted second. Should I just give her the opportunity to reorder if the arena creator says Dig shouldn't fly? And should I let her reorder entirely or just swap out the Dig for something else? EDIT 2: This is the...

    Yeah, but I'm not entirely sure, so I want another opinion, and I'm not going to ask the person who made the arena since he's one of the battlers.

    "Banned Moves: [...] Earth moving/shaking (Earthquake, Rock Throw, etc.)" Should this include Dig? I'm thinking so...

    Can a Pokémon with Arena Trap prevent a consensually flying/levitating Pokémon from lifting off? And if it does manage to get in the air, does it escape the effects of Arena Trap? Also, does Arena Trap actually prevent switching, or does "no other pokémon may leave the arena" just mean e.g...

    Does Bide get unleashed at the beginning or the end of the third action?

    Re: Litwick locomotion: I finally got around to watching the Litwick episode of Best Wishes and I was right; it just slides around while wibbling its base.

    Does Wish's duration include the action it's used on? (And is there any particular reason it's not constant? Three actions not including the one it's used on makes sense to me; that means it happens in a round.) Will the holder of a type-efficacy berry automatically eat it when an attack of...

    Didn't you say pretty much the opposite re: Rest at some point when someone asked pretty much the same question with Screech or something? You could potentially prevent the user from falling asleep, but once it's under, it's under? Also, if Jump Kick hits Protect, does it cause crash damage...

    Bunch of questions I don't know how to answer so I'm deferring them here: Does Wish take enough concentration that it could be hindered/prevented with a well-timed Echoed voice? Specifically an Echoed Voice strong enough to do 10% damage (first use, Adaptability and +2 special attack) and the...

    What happens if you use Counter/Mirror Coat/Metal Burst after your energy gets hit? EDIT: Also can you fit health Drain Punch and energy Drain Punch into a single Drain Punch conditional slot?

    Why does Hustle affect special attacks in ASB? And does it also lower the accuracy of non-damaging moves? EDIT: Also does Solar Power's damage count as self-inflicted? EDIT2: Also I should point out that while Bulbapedia has Role Play and Magic Coat's tutor lists straight on those moves'...

    Can you set up a second Future Sight if the target's already waiting to get hit by one? I know you can't in the games, presumably because programming an arbitrary number of Future Sight flags per target would be complicated, but I don't see any reason why not here.

    ... What about Focus Punch? Could I tell my Pokémon to use Focus Punch if its opponent uses a non-damaging attack?

    Attacks and Abilities Guide

    Can a Pokémon recognize when it's about to get hit by Pain Split and use Protect accordingly? If so, should Protect's energy cost still be based on the amount of health the user would have otherwise lost? I mean, that would be a lot of energy, and Pain Split is technically a non-damaging move...

    Yeah, unrelated bonus is what I was getting at with "frame shift" I guess. The Guide describes it as a "+1 attack boost" though.
